6,346 actual mile survivor! Rare and desirable L-82, 4-speed with 3.70 gears. #s matching, factory red car. It is completely original down to the tires. Ready to win all the Corvette awards. The original owner ordered this car special with all these options, we have the original order form. All the literature like manuals, brochure, warranty booklet is included. 1 owner 25 years, sold to 2nd owner in 2004 with 4,500 miles (marked actual on title). 2nd owner passed away and the car was sold 2016 with 5,312 actual miles.
EXTERIOR: All original condition, considering it's age it is in excellent shape. The body has no signs of damage, everything fits very nicely. The rubber bumpers are even in excellent shape. We've inspected the paint closely and agree that it is original, no signs of overspray or tape lines anywhere. The paint finish is still remarkably nice considering it's age. It has optional sport mirrors and power antenna. The aluminium wheels are also an option and these are in excellent condition. Those are even the original Goodyear GT tires. Although they are past their expiration date, they look close to new. The weatherstrips are still soft.
INTERIOR: It is practically brand new inside. The genuine leather on the sport seats and steering wheel are still glove soft. The instrument panel, lenses, vents, console, heater control panel are excellent. The shifter ball has no wear. It still has the original Am-Fm stereo with an 8 track player. There are even 8 track tapes in the globox. The door panels, trim, visors are mint. The carpet and mats are not worn. In back it does have the sun shade, the t-top bags are in the compartment, the battery was replaced with a Delco. It has the convenience group which includes interior light delay, which is working.
ENGINE COMPARTMENT: It is as it left the factory. It has it's original vin # matching performance L-82 350 motor. It also has air conditioning, power steering and brakes. The L-82 also came dressed up with a silver intake and finned valve covers. The smog pump is still completely hooked up. The air cleaner assembly is complete. Actually it looks 100% stock except 2 hose clamps.
UNDERSIDE: Just as it left the factory. It has not even been spray painted. All the assembly line markings are very visible throughout. It has it's original vin # matching 4-speed trans. In back it has it's original rear end with high performance 3.70 gears. It still has it's original exhaust system including catalytic converter and the mufflers are dated. The original spare has never been used, it has the ink stamp on the tread. All the components look proper. It has independent suspension front and back. Disc brakes at all for wheels.
They are only original once! You can't ever go back and get another one. Corvettes are always sought after, this one is an excellent investment. It would be a fun hobby taking this to the Corvette shows and getting the awards, then eventually the Triple Crown. This car will do it, the value would go up once it does too!
I, Jay Grams, take pride in personally writing the descriptions for virtually every car for about the last 30 years now. A significant amount of effort goes into fact checking. What I am offering is my professional impression of the vehicle.
Our salesmen are happy to assist with descriptions and making sure your questions are answered. One great suggestion is letting us do a walk around video that explains the car's condition in detail.
