Over the past decade and a half, I have offered and sold many vehicles here on Ebay, most being classic muscle cars. This one is a locally 1969 Corvette with original motor.
This one I acquired about 3 years ago. It was in the process of a complete restoration by the last owner of the car, prior to his death several years ago. It was taken down to the frame. Not listing all that was done, but frame was blasted and sealed, new brake and gas lines, new suspension and brakes, shocks, springs. All of the vacuum system has new components for wipers, headlights. Still can't totally understand this system but lights go up and down and wiper door does as well. Wipers work too. The system was done by schematic by me with new components. Still needs some tweaking though. FYI: Frame is super solid. Has all new exhaust. Has a new gas tank and sending unit too. Lights work. Engine and trans I was told were completely rebuilt prior to my purchase, don't know the specs on that but they're original to the car. When I went to purchase, we put a battery in the car, pumped it a bunch and she started up. Interior is clean and not torn up. Tach and speedo, oil pressure seem to work also. As mentioned, I put a new battery in it last summer. Radio doesn't work. A/C does not work and condenser is not in the car.
When we did pick the car up, the tires were old and weather checked, so I restored an extra set of Rally wheels that came with the car in installed new BFGoodrich TA's, original center caps and aftermarket trim rings. Car came originally with hubcaps, which will go with car. In my opinion, they were just ugly, so they weren't going back on the car.
There were a few small things I did to the car beyond the above listed like new vent trim but for the most part you see the car for what it is. The paint is very nice for a numbers matching driver. It's not spider webby, if that's a term. Body lines are straight, glass is nice too. Truly not a Corvette guy but my father in law is and has had 63 through 73 Corvettes since I have known him. He said it is the right car. Before the car leaves, I'll have my NAPA service center align the car, as we finished the suspension and spring install since I have had it, and know it will need that. With all of this said, the car is nice looking, has everything listed above, and is numbers matching. It has several little scratches and very few small chips but very minor in my opinion. It also appears to me to be missing a couple small pieces of trim about 5 inches long each up next to the windshield but not for sure. The car will need a little finishing here and there or not, that's up to you. Just know the car isn't a show car but all the tough stuff is done. For the time I have had this Corvette, I have driven locally and to my service center but no long distance. I would imagine most anyone will have this car transported but want to answer the question now. Not sure of long distance travel. It's an old car and don't have a history with it. Sold for $14,700 on January 4, 2017.
