|Description:||This car has been a blast for the last 16 years. Yes, I have owned the car since Nov 1987 and it has ALWAYS been garaged and covered. When I bought it, the car needed some TLC and cleaning up plus some basic mechanic work ... normal items for a vette of that age (i.e. new brakes, ball joints, tie-rod ends, etc...) but it had a good engine and decent body/paint. First time I opened it up to put on some new gaskets, I was amazed how clean the lifter valleys were ... no sludge whatsoever. I wanted to keep the car until it became a Classic ... which it now is. This is not a show car in its current state but definitely a good driving car. Email me with any questions, I have no reservations of telling you anything about the vehicle as you will note in my following write-up.
The current radio and power antenna are aftermarket: JVC and Hyrada, respectively. The original radio (Pioneer AM/FM Cassette) has been retained as has most parts I have replaced. The car has minor paint dings from normal driving that have been painted with Nic-And-Fix. I have put 30,xxx miles on the vehicle since I have owned it. I have only put about 1500 miles on it the last five years.
As for the INOP air conditioner and door locks mentioned above. I replaced the evaporator core several years ago. Had it leak checked and filled at the Lou Fusz Chevy (Mid Rivers) and it held up OK until the compressor gave up. I rarely ever used the AC, so it was a low priority to fix. As for the door locks, they did not work when I bought the car. I determined the lock actuators were INOP but again, it was a low fix priority since I could easily reach across the car to unlock the either side. I also know the car had some paint work done as the pin stripes are low. I could tell there was light damage to the left rear quarter panel down by the marker light but everything else looked OK. The right door panel was still factory sealed but the left had been worked on for whatever reason.
When I purchased the car, my insurance company requested the VIN be etched in various places on the car. One of the pictures below shows the VIN etched into the door jam. They put the VIN in about 15 places: doors, hood, wheels, frame, etc...
WHY SELLING: It was one of my hobbies. I did the work I had tools and time for but my interests have shifted now. I do not have to sell it ... just figure if someone else who has the time wants it ... why not since I preserved it to the Classic state.
