EXTERIOR

THIS CAR WAS ORIGINALLY DARK GREEN (58) AND RECEIVED THIS CUSTOM PURPLE METAL FLAKE METALLIC PAINT IN 1994. IT WAS DONE BY A TOP AUTOMOTIVE PAINTER WHO SPECIALIZED IN METAL FLAKE. THE PAINT HAS HELD UP AMAZINGLY WELL AND STILL LOOKS NEW. TODAY, THIS PAINT JOB WOULD COST AROUND $10,000.

THE CAR HAS NOT BEEN DETAILED, JUST WASHED.

OVERALL, THE PAINT IS IN EXCELLENT CONDITION. THERE ARE SOME SCRATCHES IN THE CLEAR COAT ON THE HOOD, YOU HAVE TO LOOK CAREFULLY AND AT THE RIGHT ANGLE TO SEE THEM BECAUSE THEY BLEND INTO THE METAL FLAKE PATTERN. THERE IS ALSO ONE VERY SMALL CHIP AROUND THE PASSENGER SIDE BRAKE LIGHT.


THE CAR DOES COME WITH SOME EXTRA ORIGINAL PAINT AND METAL FLAKE FOR TOUCH-UPS.

WE'RE CALLING THIS COLORDISCO PURPLEAND ITS PRETTY AMAZING. IT'S LIKE DRIVING A LIFE-SIZE HOTWHEELS CAR. IT POPS BOTH DURING THE DAY IN THE SUN AND AT NIGHT WHEN THE LIGHT HITS IT. THIS CAR GETS THUMBS UP AND COMPLIMENTS FROM MEN, WOMEN, AND CHILDREN ALIKE. IT PUTS A SMILE ON EVERYONE'S FACE.

ALL THE GLASS IS GOOD.

GLASS T-TOPS

INTERIOR

THE INTERIOR IS IN VERY GOOD ORIGINAL CONDITION. THE TAN LEATHER SEATS ARE STILL SOFT AND SUPPORTIVE. THE DOOR PANELS, DASH, AND HEADLINER ARE ALL IN VERY NICE CONDITION. OVERALL, THE CARPET IS NICE EXCEPT FOR A SIZEABLE TEAR IN THE DRIVER-SIDE FOOTWELL.

THE INTERIOR HAS NOT BEEN DETAILED AND WOULD LIKELY BENEFIT FROM ONE.


POWER OPTIONS

THIS CORVETTE HAS ALL THE OPTIONS INCLUDING:

POWER LOCKS

POWER WINDOWS

AIR CONDITIONING

TILT & TELESCOPING STEERING WHEEL

POWER ANTENNA

IT ALSO HAS AN UPGRADED STEREO

ALL THE POWER OPTIONS WORK PERFECTLY. HOWEVER, THE AIR CONDITIONING WILL NEED A RECHARGE.

ALL THE GAUGES WORK PERFECTLY.

THE WINDOW AND T-TOP WEATHER STRIPPING IS STILL SOFT AND SEALS LIKE IT SHOULD MAKING FOR A QUIET AND DRY CABIN.

MECHANICAL

IT IS MECHANICALLY EXCELLENT IN EVERY WAY AND NEEDS NOTHING. IT STARTS, IDLES, DRIVES, SHIFTS, AND STOPS GREAT. GET IN AND GO!

THE OPTIONAL LARGER L82 ENGINE PROVIDES A LOT OF POWER AND MAKES FOR A SMOOTH AND ENJOYABLE DRIVE.

IT HAS JUST BEEN SERVICED AND HAS MANY NEW PARTS:

FRESH FULL TUNE-UP

FRESH OIL CHANGE

NEW BRAKES ALL AROUND

NEW CALIPERS ALL AROUND

NEW ROTORS

NEW EXHAUST

REBUILT REAR-END

NEW BATTERY

UNDERCARRIAGE

THE FRAME AND FLOORS ARE CLEAN AND BASICALLY RUST-FREE WITH ONLY SOME AREAS OF VERY MINOR/NORMAL AND VERY SURFACE RUST ON THE FRAME.

THE DUAL EXHAUST PIPES AND MUFFLERS ARE IN EXCELLENT CONDITION. THE EXTERNAL COVER OF THE CATALYCTIC CONVERTER IS RUSTED THROUGH BUT THE CAT ITSELF, WHILE ALSO RUSTED, IS STILL SOLID AND COULD/SHOULD BE CLEANED UP TO PRESERVE IT.

IT IS MISSING THE SPARE TIRE AND SPARE TIRE COVER.

IT WILL NEED TWO NEW TIRES.

CLARIFICATION
WE WANTED TO CLARIFY THE PAINT DESCRIPTION. THE DESCRIPTION STATES THAT THERE ARE SCRATCHES IN THE CLEAR COAT ON THE HOOD. A MUCH MORE ACCURATE WAY TO DESCRIBE IT WOULD BE TO SAY THAT THERE ARE CRACKS IN THE CLEAR COAT AND PAINT (NOT IN THE FIBERGLASS) ON THE HOOD.
BECAUSE OF THE METAL FLAKE PATTERN, THEY ARE NOT ALWAYS VISIBLE AND YOUR ABILITY TO SEE THEM WILL DEPEND ON YOUR VIEWING ANGLE AND THE WAY THE LIGHT IS HITTING THE PAINT BUT THEY ARE THERE AND WILL, AT TIMES, BE VISIBLE. THEY DID NOT SHOW UP WELL IN THE PICTURES BUT WE WILL TRY TO TAKE PICTURES THAT SHOW THEM AND POST THEM BY SUNDAY MORNING.
IF YOU ARE LOOKING FOR JUST A UNIQUE, FUN, AND PRESENTABLE DRIVER QUALITY CAR, THEN THIS WILL DEFINITELY FIT THE BILL. IF YOU ARE LOOKING FOR SOMETHING MORE, YOU WILL WANT TO REPAINT THE HOOD, AND PROBABLY THE FRONT FENDERS AS WELL SO THAT THE COLOR MATCHES PERFECTLY. THERE IS EXTRA ORIGINAL PAINT AND METAL FLAKE INCLUDED BUT ITS MORE FOR TOUCH-UPS AND SO WE CAN’T GUARANTEE THERE’S ENOUGH TO REPAINT THE HOOD.
THANK YOU
