Car history:
1980 Chevrolet Corvette L-48 Option Car. 69,000 Original Miles.
Creme white Original Paint! (Yes, Original!)
DoeSkin Interior (Needs Work, but not for long! Read Below )
Factory A/C Corvette
Factory Corvette Alloy Wheels
T-tops
Tilt and Telescoping steering wheel.
4 wheel disc brakes
Both Vaccum assisted headlights work like a dream (which is pretty rare for an original Corvette )
I have all the factory parts except for the factory valve covers.
I just ordered almost a thousand dollars worth of parts to fix just about everything for this car.
New parts on order for the things that need attention but not too much does.
As I get the parts in, I will post updated photos of progress as the new parts mate to the Corvette.

Here Are the following parts I have ordered for this Corvette:
From: Eckler's Corvette: Part number: 34431 Description: Corvette Shifter
Console Trim Plate, With Power windows and Rear Defroster. Cost: $63.93
From: Jeff_Vette Ebay: Description: Corvette Center Gauge Radio Bezel Housing
Trim. Cost: $43.78
From: Full Throttle Corvette Ebay: Description: Corvette Complete Carpet Set
Molded Doeskin. Cost: $294.00
From: Corvette Central Ebay: Description: Corvette Lug Nuts. Cost: $22.94
From: Eckler's Corvette: Part Number: A5293. Description: Corvette Shifter Knob,
Automatic Transmission, Chrome. Cost: $19.99
From: Eckler's Corvette: Part Number:A9424. Description: Corvette Shifter Knob
Button, Automatic Transmission. Cost: $19.99
From: JB Corvette Parts Ebay: Description: Corvette Aluminum Wheel Center Cap
Set-New. Cost: $53.00
From: www.1aautomotive.com Ebay: Description: 1980 Chevrolet Corvette Door
Weather Stripping set. Cost: $69.90
From: thepartsladi ebay. Description: Corvette Leather Shifter Boot. Cost: $18.75
From: jfortec Ebay. Description: 1980 Corvette Side Fender Louvers Pair Black. Cost: $47.99
From: Iggeeseatcovers Ebay. Description: 1980 Leather seat covers Doeskin: Cost: $194.00

That totals out to Just Under $850.00 in parts!!!!!

If you were to take this car to a Corvette speciality shop, parts would have been
at least double the price.

Labor for all those pieces at a Corvette speciality shop would minimum be
$5000.00 if not more than this.

You buy the car say for example $8000.00 Plus parts from a Corvette shop:
$1600.00 Plus labor: $5000.00 Thats $14,600.00 Total investment!

You know and I know that those numbers are not going to make you any money
anytime soon on this car if and when you decide to sell this car.

I have eliminated 98% of the parts and labor that this car is going to need.
You may be asking yourself why such an original Car needs this many parts?
Answer: Previous Owner had NO business owning this Corvette nor anything like it.

Just the average retail of this car according to NADA is $16,165.00
With just minor cosmetic work you could easily get this car into the High retail
which is $24,570.00
Realisticly with todays bad economy $24,570.00 would, in reality, never happen
until the market picks back up steadily.
I am letting this car go for just under the low retail of the NADA guide sheet, which
is $11,825.00
This is a realistic Corvette with a realistic owner and wants a realistic price.
I can deliver the car for $1.10 per loaded mile or you can have the car shipped to
your house.
The new owner will get all of the new parts if I haven't got them installed yet.
My name is Brandon my cell is 806-330-0383 if you have any questions or
concerns or would like to make an appointment.

UPDATE: Got new Side Louvers installed onto car. Photos of new one on the car
and the old one that I took off.

UPDATE: Got new Gauge Cluster Bezel in just now, will have pics up tomorrow of
the old one and the new one installed.

UPDATE: Bottom plastic trim piece took off. sanded, lacquered the old paint off,
dried, shot Duplicolor Automotive paint and clearcoat on. pic of freshly painted trim on car.
