At the buyers option, I will consider selling without the 3X2 intake assembly.
I know the man/shop who did the frame, completely rebuilt the motor &
transmission. Watch videos & hear it run.
The previous owner is an accountant, he kept a very neat file with all of the
receipts stapled and totaled with an adding machine. He spent $36,000 on this car.
I have personally, spoken to 2 previous owners back to 1995, they confirm it is a
real L-68, Automatic car, with original motor.
Using all the above as well as my own research, my description below...

Eckler's L88 hood
After being in storage for years, I performed the following before starting the engine:
1.I pulled the valve covers & oiled the rocker arms.
2.Pulled 8 plugs and sprayed the cylinders liberally with JB80 lubricant and allowed
it to "sit"
3.Rebuilt 3 carbs
4.Pulled distributor and primed oil pump / system with a electric drill.
5.Changed the oil & added Marvel Mystery Oil
6.Used a hanging "IV" style gas bottle.
7.The 427 engine started right up and immediately began running on "all 8"
The engine starts right up and runs beautifully, as it should.... no noise, no leaks,
no smoke. Idles and accelerates perfectly.
Alot of time and money was spent on this car. Due to sitting under a carport...
Unfortunately, most of the parts that are unpainted or cad plated have rusted.
This is a cosmetic defect and will require some attention.
All of the trim and interior has been removed from the car.
Most parts are included in boxes.
I only have the parts in the pictures... except for many small miscellaneous items
in the boxes.
This is the perfect project / opportunity for some one to get into a REAL 427, tri
power, Convertible, Vette for an affordable price.
