Interior
New door panels, New carpet everywhere but the back, seat covers are incorrect and the driver side piping shows wear. Correct originals are included but will need to be repaired on the bottoms for both sides. Passenger side dash eyebrow is new.

I have owned this car since January 2001. The previous 2 owners were also in Florida.

The car has been a weekend toy for 2 decades. The paint is close to 20 years old. I did have the nose touched up about 5 years ago when I had the rear panel painted when the side pipes were added.

The car can sit for 2 weeks and will still start right up and idle with no problem. It has never gotten hot and runs like a top.

Exterior

The top is in fair condition with just a few small areas of wear but with no leaks. For its age of 7 years plus it looks great. The car also comes with a new unused in the box Al Koch white top.

The paint is a 5 footer. It does have road chips and the paint bubbled and cracked on the passenger fender a few years ago. I have imaged every flaw I could find. I hand waxed it and I think even more shine can be reached by a detailer.

Flaws

The clock works but does not keep accurate time
The side pipes have a slight squeak when the car is cold. I bought a complete Sidepipe install kit from Ecklers that is included that should fix it.
Passenger side headlight is just a bit slower going up and down but not by much. See video.
The paint is old and has flaws.
The frame is original and only cleaned to the firewall.
There is a hole in the floor were the jack is stored. It is shown from the top and the bottom.
Parking brake is weak
Tires have less than 50% life in them
The origional radio will crackle if the volume is changed to fast

It was the vette or the L :(

All 3 of us fit in the L and I use the L.

Already had a lot of interest on the Corvette Forum.

I plan to take it to the Super Chevy show Saturday if the weather holds.

Then maybe Ebay

The market taking such a hit this week is probably the only reason I will still have it this weekend.

Yeah I hear you man. If my truck was running it might be on the auction block. I can't even sell it how it is :lol: Anyways, the Super Chevy show should be a great place to get some hits on that thing. I'm going to try to make it on Saturday.
