Classic Vette with upgrades! GM crate motor, disc brakes.

This classic Vette has been treated to some nice upgrades. A GM crate motor and a 4-speed will make it go, the upgraded disc brakes make sure you stop! It has a folder of receipts. Beautiful in and out.

EXTERIOR: The body is one of the better ones I've seen. No significant cracks, damage or repairs showing. The gaps are real good, it's straight. Last year for the contrasting color in the cove. The red with white is classic. The paint has a very glossy finish with minor imperfections. The chrome looks like it was all replaced or replated. The stainless trim is polished and straight. The weatherstrips were replaced. The white convertible top is very good, it easily folds under the lid. It has a lowered stance and rolls on polished 17 inch Torque Thrust wheels with performance tires. if you look for them. Upgraded LED taillights.

INTERIOR: Custom upholstered door panels, kick panels and seats. It resembles the original patterns but has a more padded look. The dash area is excellent. Dash pads look new, gauges are clean. It has a retro stereo with kick panel speakers. The bits and pieces are real nice- armrests, grab bar, shifter bezel etc. The Hurst shifter has a red boot. The steering wheel is smaller making it a little easier to get in and out. It has red seat belts. Carpet was replaced and has embroidered mats.

ENGINE COMPARTMENT: GM Performance HO 350-333 hp crate motor. Paperwork is included for the motor. It has GM aluminum heads and intake, holley dual feed carb and HEI ignition. The generator was upgraded with a one wire alternator. Upgraded dual reservoir master cylinder. The cooling system looks good, it has clutch fan, shroud and expansion tank. Overall clean and proper.

TRUNK COMPARTMENT: Very nicely restored. Clean fiberglass painted red. It has a spare tire in the floor. The rubber mat was replaced with red carpet with insulation pad and bound edges. The weatherstrip and cardboard filler panel were replaced.

UNDERSIDE: It is clean, maintained as needed. Sway bar, upper control arm bushings, king pins, tie rod end and front wheel bearings were replaced. Upgraded KYB shocks all around. In back the sway bar bushings were replaced, it has lowering blocks in the springs. Recently upgraded brake system with disc in front, powder coated calipers, braided hoses and dual reservoir master cylinder. E-brake is hooked up. Dual exhaust system has welded joints and Flowmaster mufflers. Looking up at the motor it is clean, the GM part number is riveted to the block. The flywheel was replaced. It has a T10 4-speed trans. Original rear end dated to this car. The frame is solid, fiberglass floors are real nice.

This is a great way to enjoy some American nostalgia with some upgrades that make it more safe and reliable. The sound it will make as your shifting those gears will be music. The compliments you get on its looks will make you proud!

I, Jay Grams, take pride in personally writing the descriptions for virtually every car for about the last 30 years now. A significant amount of effort goes into fact checking. What I am offering is my professional impression of the vehicle.
Our salesmen are happy to assist with descriptions and making sure your questions are answered. One great suggestion is letting us do a walk around video that explains the car's condition in detail.
