1981 Chevrolet CorvetteHi Guys, Rich at The Mustang Ranch here in Golden, Colorado. My client has asked me to sell for him one of his personal cars. This 1981 Chevrolet Corvette vin #1G1AY8762BS422826 with 76,300 miles still retains it numbers matching motor and transmission. Back in 2008 this Vette went through just short of a rotisserie restoration. The original motor was machined and fitted with C&C Motorsports 427 Stroker kit. Polished and ported heads and matched to the intake manifold as well as having all of the other internal and external components replaced. The Warner 4 speed was rebuilt and a performance clutch was installed. Stainless steel headers and side pipes with out the catalytic converters give it a nice sound. Moderately quiet at lower rpms and much louder when you step into it. Over $16,000 was spent on the drive train rebuild. The paint was redone in its original #19 Black. A great effort was placed into smoothing out the fiberglass body and getting the lines/ gaps to match up, better than the factory. I was told that over $18,000 was spent on the custom body/ paint/ Shark mural and chrome work. Front/ rear suspension, brakes, drive axels, wheel bearings and other components were replaced. The interior is mostly original and shows a little ware in the normal places. Everything works, wipers/ headlights/ turn signals/ Kenwood stereo and power windows. The original wheels were reconditioned and new BFG 225/60/15's were installed. The AC is all in tact but will need a recharge. The Carburetor was just rebuilt after being in storage for a couple of years. We estimate about 10,000 miles since the rebuild.
The engine starts right, up no noises/ smoke or leaks. The transmission/ clutch engages in all forward/ reverse gears smooth. I have this Vette out for a drive and it has great acceleration and power. She is totally road worthy! There are some small chips and scratches but nothing catastrophic. She could use a spring cleaning before putting into service. There is no guarantee or warranty on this C-3 so please call and ask as many questions as you like.
