|2) 1972 Corvette, matching engine number, 4-speed. Odometer shows 20,135, but can not be verified. Original build color of Ontario Orange with Saddle interior. Original spare tire. I replaced some interior wear items including new seat covers, doors panels, carpet. All lights work, vacuum, wipers, turn signals. Tach is inop at this time. Front cross member, known for rust, has been replaced. Engine runs strong, idles perfectly, shifts, brakes and steers as it should. No leaks, dry underneath. All fluids changed. T-tops, last year for removable rear window. Needs paint or drive and enjoy as-is. Clear title, no known accidents. Currently registered and met DMV inspections for Texas. Some extras included in a box: replacement radio, weather-stripping, seals, exhaust tips, hardware. In the interest of full disclosure, there are two areas on the frame that need attention, one is near the passenger wheel well and the other is in the center cross member. Still a solid frame but will need attention in the future. Also, I can't seem to get the ignition key out of the ignition but the car starts and runs normally; apparently this key release challenge is a known issue and shouldn't be too difficult to address. No bid at starting $16,500 on February 4, 2018.
1) Very original, matching numbers, last year chrome bumper coupe:
- Matching numbers original 350ci engine (200 hp version), 4-speed manual
- Factory AC, power brakes and power steering
- 20,200 miles
- Original paint coupe.
The car is so original that within the last year we just recommissioned the following:
- Full engine tune up
- All filters replaced
- New spark plugs
- New belts
- New brakes
- Carb clean and tune.
- Radiator flush
- Transmission oil change
- Engine oil change
- Paint and body polish (no repaint on original factory paint)
- Full electric verification (all in working order)
Short history: The car was sold through an auction in Michigan. From what we know it belonged to an estate who's owner passed. The car was kept well but not used, so it required a full recommissioning in order to bring it back to perfect running condition without harming its originality. The car has scrapes on paint and lightly worn original interior. Mechanically it's ready to ride. Original wheels as well. Sold for $16,100 on December 3, 2016.
