Car history:
History:
This Chevrolet Corvette was bought new by actress Kim Basinger on September
14, 1978. That year marked the 25th anniversary for the model and this car was
purchased from Schonlaw Chevrolet of Hollywood, California. The car has been in
the Basinger family since and is currently owned by Kim's brother Skip, who drove
it a short time before storing it in 1991. It has recently been brought out of
storage and is being offered here, at auction to the highest bidder.

Equipment:
The car is in original condition with 48,400 miles on it. It is equipped with the L-48,
350 engine and an automatic transmission. It also features a positive traction
differential, heavy duty suspension and 8" Rally wheels with trim rings and center
caps. Recent, professionally done work includes a new battery, four wheel brake
caliper rebuild, brake master cylinder and brake lines and hoses at the front. The
engine starts easily and runs very well.

Cosmetics:
The car has never been damaged and the exterior retains the original solid Black
paint and factory emblems. The interior is leather in Oyster color, is complete with
all trim panels and carpeting, and has never been smoked in. The instrument
panel also is original with the exception of an after market stereo / cassette player
installed some time ago.

Options:
Options include mirrored glass roof panels (T-tops), power windows, power
antenna, tilt steering and Posi-trac differential. Car comes with original owners
manual and other documentation showing ownership history.

Repairs needed:
The left roof panel is cracked at the front (please see picture) but does not leak.
The power antenna is not working. The passenger side, interior kick panel has a
small tear. The drivers side, door pull is broken at the forward attach point and, as
the car has been stored for many years, the air conditioning system requires
servicing and presently does not cool.

The car shows some light wear as would be expected and some paint fade at the
rear, otherwise it is in straight, solid, clean and drivable condition and after some
minor work, could be enjoyed as is. It is believed to be one of about 8,000 units
offered in Black for that year..... This special, family owned Corvette is one classy
looking car. Vehicle will be sold in "as is" condition and without warranty. Buyer is
responsible for delivery or shipping arrangements. Thank you.
