|We bought this car as a hobby and labor of love. This year vette was special and
alot of one of kinds (ie. the fuel door had NO emblem, the rear fascia was a two
piece, and the first year for both fascias being painted). As we understand the
title chain story we are the 3rd owners. A nice size pictoral history of the repairs
been made goes with the car (but its not all inclusive). Some manuals also go with
the car. This car has been garaged and did not run from the early 1990`s - 2005,
not sure before that. We bought in 2005 and its been in a heated garage since.
Sitting in these seats you can imagine a newer car smell. Most of the major items
were sent to name vendors as seen in the list below. A majority of the nuts and
bolts have been replaced with SS or hardened steel bolts, some of the threads
were retapped and nuts reamed for ease of re-installation if they could be. It has
been an investment and fun car to work on and have. We have put about 50 miles
on the crate engine. When we drove it last (18 months ago), before the steering
and brakes had been done, it started and drove good but loose. It is a good car
but it needs a little more work. It has all the beauty rings and real metal center hubs.
What NEW items have been done:
350 crate jasper engine (painted GM orange), ceramic hooker headers, chrome
intake, Edelbrock chrome valve covers, Edelbrock chrome crankcase valve, extra
Edelbrock fuel filter added by carb with liquid fuel pressure gauge, Holley carb,
