#s match throughout. 2 tops, a/c, ps. Frame off restored.

Just finished a complete body off frame restoration. #s match throughout- motor, trans, rear, starter, carb, distributor and color. Very desirable 2 top roadster with a/c and a 4-speed.

EXTERIOR: The body is in very good shape, no cracks or damage that I found. Repainted it's original Steel Cities gray, rare color. The paint is glossy. Shiny and straight original chrome. New windshield and the stainless trim around it was polished. It still has the weather shields behind the grills that protect the headlights and it has the front spoiler. 15x8 rally wheels have good original trim and new tires. It has a correct antenna and vintage 1972 license plate. The black convertible top is in very good condition. The hardtop is painted to match the car and is also in very good original condition.

INTERIOR: New cushions and upholstery, the seats are comfy. New door panels. The carpet has been replaced front to back. The dash pad is very nice, factory gauges are clean and they all work. The clock was rebuilt. It has original Am-Fm radio. The center console bezel is all new, the heater control panel is new. It has the correct shifter with reverse lock out and chrome ball. New carpet front to back.

ENGINE COMPARTMENT: The casting codes and dates are correct. The vin #s on the pad match the car. Correct numbered carb and distributor. The 350 motor was completely rebuilt- polished crank, new pistons, reconditioned rods, LT-1 cam etc. New master cylinder. Rebuilt radiator, new clutch fan, new heater core and hoses. The factory air conditioning system was completely rebuilt and blows cold. The vacuum system was gone through for the wiper door and headlight doors. It is so tight there is enough vacuum to open the lights even after the engine is not running. There are so many miscellaneous parts that look new like the steering coupler, hood latch mechanisms and hinges, fan shroud, belts, pulleys etc. The dual snorkel air cleaner has a new chrome lid. The ignition shielding is new including around the spark plugs. It has a nice set of chrome Chevrolet valve covers.

UNDERSIDE: The body was off the frame for a thorough restoration. The chassis was completely disassembled. The frame was sandblasted and powder coated. We have a picture of the VIN # on the frame, it matches the car. It has independent suspension front and back, it was completely rebuilt with all new bushings, ball joints, u-joints, Delco shocks etc. The brakes system has been completely restored- new rotors, calipers, all the rubber and steel lines, e-brake assembly etc. It has disc at all four wheels. Looking up at the motor it's still spotless, correct # starter. The vin # matching M20 Muncie transmission was opened up, inspected and given a new gasket and rear pinion seal. The clutch and bearings were replaced, flywheel resurfaced, linkage refurbished. Original rear end with 3.36 posi gears was opened, inspected and given fresh fluid. New factory correct off road 2 1/5 inch exhaust system which has one less baffle, sounds a little better. It has a correct square tips coming through the valence. The fiberglass floors are in excellent condition. It has complete spare tire carrier. Every thing under this car was rebuilt or replaced and detailed real nice.

This is a well sorted and dialed in Corvette ready to be enjoyed. A 4-speed with a/c in a convertible is a very rare and desirable car. While you are having fun shifting those gears you can feel even better knowing it's an investment grade, #s matching car!
