|1969 corvette stingray convertible originally had the legendary 427 - 435 Hp. Now with a Built 540ci/ 676HP!!! on current carb set up/pump gas...did dyno at 708hp with 900 carb on it but harder to keep tuned. Overall a lot of money and time have been poured into the 3rd owner car, Professionally Restored. I have all receipts/ paper work/ documentation it is a 7.5-8+ overall cosmetically, a 9.5+ mechanically! It has approx 7,850 miles since complete overhaul (maybe 5-6 years ago) and about 1240 miles on new engine and transmission!

INTERIOR: Corvette USA-6 AM/FM Stereo, 240 Watts. ORIGINAL INTERIOR tan, seat headrest could use restoring, carpet is original and in OK condition but would need to be replaced to show. All Gauges are original and ALL WORK!!! The factory radio comes with car, and the factory clock needs to be reset/adjusted when car sits, so probably needs rebuilt to be accurate. Overall Interior is probably a 7, but remember it is all original and unmolested, no cut and chop here!
EXTERIOR: Genuine Boyd Coddington Wheels/ Polished aluminum wrapped with BF Goodrich G-Force TA Drag Radials/NEW, Paint is Good Overall condition, few minor touch up spots needed to show, paint is a 7.5-8 overall, body for a original 1969 fiberglass corvette is a 8.5 to9. 4 into 1 chrome side pipes and 2 headers
THE GOOD: Almost every known mechanical part has been replaced or upgraded to the very best in quality and performance available! Brand new Factory Convertible top (black).
The Less Than Perfect: A few minor chips in paint, only surface deep, need to be touched up if you plan to show seriously, never did as I am happy with it. Would add a roll barbut you will understand why when you drive itCRAZY FAST/ SCREAM LIKE A LITTLE GIRL SCARY FAST. Well I never screamed/ at least not for anything other than pure joy, but unless your life insurance policy is paid up, your wife may insist on a roll bar anyway! 7,823 miles. March 16, 2010.
