Car history:
1979 L-82 Chevy Corvette 350 bored .030 over, 4-speed manual, Holley Carb, Hooker Headers.

I`ve wanted one of these cars for years, finally when I got one, life does a 180 and I'm moving to CA.

The car runs great, I've drove it for hours without a glitch, except the vibration
that at this point i`m asuming comes from the clutch or pressure plate.

This is one of those cars that makes me smile when I ride in it.

-engine rebuilt by previous owner, about 5k miles on it. + clutch ( by previous owner too)
-new brakes, brake lines and rebuilt calipers ( by previous owner)
-new exhaust from the header`s back, 2 independent pipes (previous owner)
-new shocks (previous owner)
-new water pump
-new thermostat (180F performance high flow)
-new electric fan (took the old clutch fan out)
-new radiator hoses
-new distributor + coil + wires + spark plugs
-new harmonic balancer
-refurbished wilcox half shaft ( had bad u-joints)
-changed posi fluid with GM posi fluid + additive
-birdcage and floorpans striped to bare metal, treated with chassis saver (same as por-15)
-new weather strip for doors and t-tops (not installed yet, purchased from Wilcox)
-new heater core.

If I had my way in life and was keeping the car, I would
-fix a vibration that I suspect comes from the clutch or pressure plate...
-switch all rubber bushings to make the ride tighter.
-fix odds and ends that previous owners neglected or didn`t do the job properly.
-reconnect backup lights (i guess this is important, but since I was working on the
car.. wasn`t a priority yet). All cables are there, they where cut from the
transmision probably when rebuilding the engine and never reconnected
-fix loose battery connection at the starter terminal
-fix rust in the rocker channel... it rusted since the previous owner rode it without
the wheel well liner. This is a bit bigger of a job than I'm not ready to tackle.

Car is sold AS IS with no warranties. This doesn`t mean the car is a lemon, but is
almost 30 yrs old car, and I'm sure you'll find things to work on.
