|I bought this Corvette a few years back with the intention of restoring it, but found a big block car that I've decided to restore instead. So, this one is now available for sale. This was a driver with about 47000 miles on it when it was parked back in 1998. I've done most of the disassembly - the interior has all been removed, as well as the engine and wiring harnesses. The door panels are in fair condition and the seats will need to be recovered. Dash is in good driver condition. I've removed the headlight assemblies and don't have pictures of them, but they ARE included with the car. The engine that came with it was a 305, so I tracked down a 1968 327 and tore that down for a rebuild. The block was standard bore and shows very little signs of wear. I have new pistons, rings, and bearings which will go with the engine. The crankshaft needs to be turned, as it seems to be binding when I install pistons 1 and 2. Heads are from a 350 and have been completely rebuilt with less than 500 miles on them. Stamping on the block is 18N430555 V0502MA, and the casting number is 3914678. I've tried to show those in the pictures as best I can. The body is in good shape, with one bad spot on top of the front clip on the driver's side and what looks to be a patch job done on the rear clip on the driver's side. It looks good from the outside, but you can see work done when you get underneath the car. Driver's side floor pan has a sheet metal repair as shown in the pictures. Frame has some surface rust but is very solid, and the notorious dogleg area is solid on both sides. All four calipers have been rebuilt. Front bumper is good condition with some blemishes, rears will need to be replaced or repaired and rechromed. I have the automatic transmission that was in the car when I bought it, and you're welcome to it, but I can't speak to the condition. I don't think it's anything special and doubt it was the original transmission. Hard Top is in fair condition. No soft top. Very good candidate for restoration as a driver, or updating as a resto-rod. Chrome-bumper C3s are getting pretty scarce, especially convertibles.
Does the car come with:
b)console and shifting linkage
c) wheel trim rings and center caps
d) all engine components carb, distributor, flywheel, water pump, ect.
2. Did this car have factory air?
3. Any cracks in the glass?
1) Yes, the car has the radiator and surround. I have the console and an automatic shifter, and I believe the linkage is there as well. It was there when I removed it, so I'm sure I have it with the other parts. The rally wheels have their trim rings, but I don't have the center caps. I have an intake and the 4-barrell Rochester carb that came with the intake. The other components distributor, water pump, ect were on the 305 engine and you're welcome to them, but I don't know if they will work on the 327. As for a flywheel, I have the entire 305 engine and automatic transmission that came with the car, so as I mentioned in the listing the buyer is welcome to any or all of those components.
2)There was no air conditioning setup when I bought the car, but I can't say for sure if it is a factory air car. I can post closer pictures of the firewall if that will help determine.
3)The windshield was cracked when I bought the car, so I've removed that, but the other glass was intact.
Is there a steering colum and could it be thrown together for shipping?
Yes, there is a steering column. I'll post more pictures. And yes, I can get everything into the car for shipping. La barre anti roulis arriere semble etre un bricolage. $5,600 and runing. January 14, 2015.
