Corvette Description

Spring of 2017, I found this original Corvette in a climate controlled garage where a small collection had been stored for many years. There was no documentation to be found but a thorough, expert inspection indicated that this was an original car with no rust issues or evidence of damage repairs.

After the initial start up procedures, it was kept under a cover in my carport briefly, then left in Tuscaloosa Chevrolet's climate controlled shop for four months while I moved to Florida. It now resides in my home's climate controlled garage. I drive it once or twice a month to local cruise-ins and car shows, where it draws a lot of attention.

The paint and interior appear to be original. The black leather interior has no rips or tears, and no cracks in the dash pad. The headlights and wipers operate perfectly. The carpet is in good condition other than a small wear hole on the drivers side. The paint is faded a little on the upper surfaces, and the usual minor scratches and dings to be expected on an original, unrestored car. The engine is the correct, numbers-matching 454/365hp LS5. The automatic transmission is very clean and was probably replaced or rebuilt at some point in the recent past. I'm waiting for a local, reputable street rod shop to perform some minor repairs (two gauges stopped working, posi-traction clunking, minor exhaust leak half way back).

This survivor has a rare combination of options:
