Serious Buyers Only. Please, o Tire Kickers. About Restoration
This car was stunningly restored by two of Northern California finest Corvette restorers; West Coast Corvette (2013) and Automotive Enterprises (2015). The $30+k restoration work is simply unparalleled. To a complete re-chrome, o refreshed and padded seats. From transmission swap to the smallest detail such as a rare functional clock. Their stunning work receipts on all restoration work and accompanying warranties would transfer to new owner upon sale.
My father passed the car to me in 2010 upon his passing. Having terrible arthritis, e was unable to shift the manual Muncie transmission. I pulled out the transmission and put an automatic in so he could drive it in his last years. When he passed, s part of the 2014 restoration at West Coast Corvette, had a Muncie 4 Speed Transmission placed back in to match the original.
My father thought the 283 Chevy Block was too light and slow for his liking, o we dropped in a 1962 Chevy Camaro 327 in for more a little more umph. (Note a December Coded Chevrolet Corvette 283 could be sourced and installed with the matching frame date to make it a matching numbers car, owever, his would substantially change the cars price north of $100K.
Everything except the radio on the car is functional. The amplifier is non-functional and can be fixed for $1,000+/- plus time to ship out, OS restored, nd installed. All other components down to each lights, urn signals, eater, nd clock function on this car.
