This car has a branded title as Rebuilt Flood Damaged Vehicle.
In the state of Indiana it can have a license plate as titled.
I bought it last year in an insurance online auction. I fell in love with it. I wanted a
true red car and I probably paid too much. My plan was to restore it to make it my
baby, but I have another project that I want to purchase, so my red dream needs to go.
It is a really nice driving car.
The white convertible top has a tear, so it needs a new top.
The paint has small bubbles.
It needs a 100 percent restoration.
Some of the gauges do not work.
It has the following new;
New speedometer cable
New odometer cable
New emergency brake handle
Newly installed Corvette aftermarket radio
The tires are like brand new with nice white letter tires.
I do not like luggage racks on Corvettes, so I took the luggage rack off and planned
to have the holes filled in with fiberglass and painted. The rubber grommets are
still in the car body. If you want a luggage rack you can buy the car and install a
If you are looking for a nice project car this is it.
The car is located near Muncie, Indiana.
The Indiana title says the following under BRAND(S);
This car had water in the car. I do not know how high the water was, but water
was in the car.
It had water in the interior. I swept it and wiped everything down. I put a wax like
(Bees Wax) on the leather seats.
I even put a new emergency brake handle assembly in the car.
I installed a new neutral safety switch in the car.
I installed a brand new air-conditioning/heater control assembly in the center
console for looks (it is brand new and looks nice).
It had water in the transmission. The transmission was flushed with transmission
fluid. It shifts fine. The car shifts and drives nice.
It had water in the engine. I drained all the water and oil out of the engine. I put
trany fluid in the spark plug hole cylinders and let it set for four days. I put a new
oil filter, new oil, new starter and new plugs in it and it started right up. It runs strong.
NUMBERS MATCHING ENGINE BLOCK - The last six numbers on the VIN are the
same on the engine block (118343). The title VIN number, the VIN A-pillar trim
plate in the car and the engine block all match (118343). It looks like a numbers
matching engine block to me, but I did not buy it new and have only owned it
sixteen months. The engine runs great and the car drives NICE.
When I purchased the car it was supposed to have keys, but someone stole the
car keys before I purchased the car, so I installed a new key tumbler and when I
had it apart I installed new two new steering column bearings. The ignition key
does not match the door locks. I do not have a door lock key.
