This 2nd generation Corvette convertible is quite a remarkable automobile. This car has been under the same ownership since 1985, whom was an extreme Corvette enthusiast with multiple Corvettes in his collection. This car has been gone over meticulously in order to ensure its originality and correctness. This can be seen clearly based on the 4 top flight awards the car has been given over the past 20 years, with overall scores ranging from 96.6 to 97.8.
Under the hood the Numbers matching 396C.I. Big block V8 is beautifully detailed. All the original clips, hardware, hoses, and even hose clamps are present, and in wonderful condition. All the original finishes are absolutely stunning, with just a very minor amount of patina due to being a preserved, original car. Original unrestored vehicles in this condition are extremely difficult to come across, making this a very rare automobile. Inside the car there is very little wear and tear. The original coverings on the seats and the original carpets have both held up very well over the years, with nearly no signs of wear. The dashboard and gauges are original and still beautiful, it is very clear the car has had a very good caretaker over the years.
This particular car is optioned quite well. Obviously the 396C.I. 425HP Engine is a very desirable option, but even better is it is backup up by a 4-Speed Synchronized manual Gearbox. This car is also equipped with tinted glass, a posi-traction rear end, AM/FM radio, Transistor Ignition, and the Comfort and Convenience package. Finally, the car is also equipped with a factory hard top, a very desirable option for an Open-top Corvette.
The exterior of the car is very charming, sporting what we believe to be largely original paintwork. It is in very good condition showing some signs of light patina due to the age, but overall presenting beautifully. The Fiberglass has very few stress cracks, and all the brightwork is in beautiful condition and fits like new.
