73478 Miles (unverified)

A/C car

Power Locks, Windows

Tilt and Telescopic Steering wheel

Cruise

This is a car I had big plans for and didn’t end up doing anything with it.

It has been sitting in my hangar collecting dust. The battery has been on trickle charge and works fine.

The car starts right up and sounds like it should..

The exhaust looks to be in great shape!

The underside shows that it has been in a garage or stored most of its life. Very Clean

All I can see on the frame, in some spots, is a little surface rust..Not scale..light surface .

Everything that I have looked at appears to be bone stock.

The tires are in great shape and yes there is a spare tire underneath!

The heat and air appear to be working, might need a recharge in the future.

The car was inspected here in PA up till 09/2019(last year)

I drove it around a little and then parked it with plans to put twin turbos on it..never happened.

However, after sitting for about a week, it lost some transmission fluid directly under the pan.
I couldn’t find the leak and noticed the dipstick was missing. I think the previous owner just filled it up and had no way to check it. Possibly it was or could be leaking out of the filler tube where it connects to the transmission. (Little rubber seal bad?) I grabbed a dipstick from eBay and used it to check the level then drained some out. It is a generic one and isn’t a factory stick..but it works.

I have noticed the paint on the rear quarters (6 x 6 area maybe?) have some minor fisheye, I think he tried to spray the areas that may have faded. It’s not that noticeable because it’s a white car, but now that it’s pointed out you would see it.

All in all the paint is in decent shape with some very minor cracking in the nose cone..small spider cracks as expected for this year of a car.

I didn’t sweep it out or wash it off. This is how the car was stored in my hangar.

The carpet is OK, and the seat backs are scratched up.

The console wood grain is worn but could easily be refinished.

Drivers door INSIDE pull handle is missing(ones on order)

The Tach seems to work at idle but doesn’t move up beyond 600 RPM?

The clock doesn’t appear to be working.

The Radio turns on but I don't think the speakers are hooked up(if there)

The fan and switches worked fine on the heat/AC (Don’t mind the LUG nut over the switch in the pictures, it was off of the wheel and I forgot I had left it there. Lol )

Lights popped up and went back down as they should and the markers/tail lights worked.

T- Tops are tinted from the inside so they appear black in color from the outside. They are transparent and easily remove. I do not know if they leak or not, I never had it in the rain.

All the seals appear to be in pretty good shape.

The door code matches the paint and interior colors.

I verified if the engine is original as its numbers match the VIN as seen in the images.

IF you want to restore a 1977 Corvette with minimal work, this is your car!

IF you simply want to drive it and enjoy the vintage, this is your car!

I have tried to be as forthright as possible on the description, please do your due diligence and come look at the car!!

I am in MEADVILLE, PA. 16335 and the car is in my Hanger at KGKJ Port Meadville Airport.

This car is in pretty good shape and I am not presenting it as perfect but it is a nice car!

I can work around your time table if you want to see it in person, within reason of course.

Thanks for looking and be safe!
