This Corvette was mechanically modified in the spirit of a "hot rod", therefore please note that this vehicle currently has no emissions equipment installed. To reduce weight the AC compressor was removed, so the HVAC system (heat, ventilation & a/c) is inoperative and incomplete, and there is no spare tire or carrier. I do not have these parts, so it's up the the buyer to replace them if necessary or desired.

Currently the dashboard lights are inop. I'm told a new headlight switch will solve that problem. The oil pressure gauge is broken. I purchased a new one, and will include it but the buyer must install it. Also, certain non functioning features including the clock, dome/floor lights, parking brake, windshield wipers, cruise control, factory alarm etc. have been left inoperative because to me the cost of their repair did not equal their overall usefulness, not to mention their reputation for poor reliability once repaired.

All exterior lights work fine, and the vacuum operated headlamp doors function correctly.

This Corvette is a great driver. Although it?s not a NCRS car, it?s more than attractive enough to have won a trophy at an NCCC sanctioned Corvette/Chevy show.

Comes with owner?s manual, remnants of fuel tank build sheet & copy of GM's original dealer invoice

Car has a clean title. It's not a salvage car.

Asking $9,000.
