$33,000 in mechanical upgrades! Outstanding performer.

Restored in 2013, only 3,000 miles since. $33,000 was spent on some very significant mechanical upgrades. After my inspection, I have become very impressed with this one. It appears to be dialed and one heck of a performer. The motor revs like an Indy car!

EXTERIOR: The body appears to be in excellent condition, I don't see any signs of damage. Everything fits and lines up really well. The paint has a beautiful glossy finish, if you studied it closely you may find some touch ups. Up front the grill and bumper fit great, look great. It still has the water shields behind the grills to protect the headlamps. In back the bumpers have show chrome, the emblems, taillights and license plate frame look like new. The correct antenna, door handles, mirror, emblems are all excellent. The windshield is crystal. Door jambs are clean, weather strips have been replaced. The block convertible top is excellent, has clear rear window.

INTERIOR: It is very neat, tidy and detailed. The seats have new cushions and upholstery. Door panels and carpet front to back look new. It has embroidered Stingray floormats. The dash pad is mint, the center console and instrument bezel looks new. The gauges are pristine, the clock even works. It has a correct style shifter and updated 5-speed pattern on the console. The knobs, heater control panel are clean. It has a digital retro stereo in the factory hole with custom speakers in back. The tilt-telescoping column has a genuine teakwood wheel.

ENGINE COMPARTMENT: ZZ-383 stroker GM crate motor. Big block power from a small block, it makes 425 hp and 449 lbs of torque. Super reliable, it comes completely assembled from GM. They feature 4 bolt blocks, h.d. rotating assembly, roller cam and Fast Burn aluminum heads. An EZ electronic fuel injection system provides easy starts and phenomenal performance. This thing revs up and sounds like an Indy car. It has Noles distributor and a set of coated headers. The front of the motor has a GM serpentine belt and pulley system with modern power steering and alternator. It runs cool with an aluminium radiator, electric fan and it has hard pipe hoses. It also features power brakes. New vacuum pods for the wipers and headlights, some of the vacuum hoses were upgraded with hardlines. The master cylinder, overflow bottle, fuel regulator look new. It has some beautiful chrome valve covers.

UNDERSIDE: The underside of this car is really impressive. Every component looks like it's rebuilt or replaced. All the finishes are clean. Bottom of the motor is clean, has high torque starter. Upgraded Legend Gear 5-speed. These are a beefy trans with high quality parts and said to be overengineered. Original 3.36 rear end. Pypes Performance stainless exhaust system with x-pipe. The chassis is all clean and restored. The front end looks like it's been completely rebuilt. New bushings, shocks, etc. Upgraded Flaming River rack and pinion steering system. The rear suspension was all rebuilt, upgraded with gas shocks and a fiberglass spring. The fiberglass floors are raw like they are supposed to be, no damage, very clean. The brake system was restored, has disc at all 4 wheels, e-brake assembly is hooked up.

Shifting through those gears while carving up the curves will be an exhilarating experience in this Vette!
