This car is a very nice driver and was bought by myself to drive and enjoy. I'll try and be exhaustive here as I don't want any surprises.
Asking $32,000 (firm).
Post here if you need additional car details.
I'm not looking to trade for anything. I'm just wanting to get into some other hobbies.

Here are some engine specs:
383 small block chevy (brand new block from Chevy, stroker kit from Scoggin Dickey Chevrolet)
Trick flow aluminum heads (TFS-30400003-CNC) http://www.trickflow.com/partdetail....C&autoview=sku
Comp Cams XS274S http://www.compcams.com/Cam_Specs/Ca...?csid=226&sb=2
Edelbrock Performer RPM manifold
1.6 ratio roller rockers
~10.0 compression ratio
4 speed Muncie M-20
3.36 rear end ratio
No rust in birdcage, frame, rear wheel weepholes, etc.
Recently adjusted the valves, new plugs and changed oil and filter (I run diesel oil for the additives).
Never driven in rain since motor rebuild. Have to be careful when washing. Weatherstripping is old. Will leak when washed
around the deck lid into the 'trunk', so I hand wash.
Put a slightly used 750dp Holley carb on earlier this summer along with a new fuel pump
(old pump, cheap Summit unit, was leaking) http://www.holley.com/0-9379.asp http://store.summitracing.com/partde...0&autoview=sku
Also have the older carb, a 600 vac secondary (1850-2)
Always run 93 octane fuel. Not sure if it would have problems with lesser octane.
The rear end is the only item not yet touched (i.e. restored) by me. ujoints are in good shape.
The seals on the rear for the shafts leak slightly (only slightly on the rear case, not onto the garage floor)
All front end parts new during initial restoration, pictures on website.
The spare tire and 'tub' were removed from under the car and are stored in the garage (will ship with car).
Got new heater core during interior restoration. Interior restoration included new leather seat covers, padding
(as seen in website pictures), two new dash pads, carpet, etc (see website)
Engine rebuild was completed about 3 years ago. Put roughly 1000 miles for motor break
in the first three months. Since then, averaged no more than 50 miles per month (usually take it to
work once a month), so probably 2-3k miles tops on motor.
Insured with Haggerty. Appraised value is 40k and full coverage is ~350/year.
Have receipts for everything I've bought.
Here are the remaining punch list items that I have on my list:
- water temp gauge
need to either get a new gauge, calibrate the old one or replace the temp sensor.
some will put a variable resistor in line. apparently sold by one corvette dealer.
the temp sensor is new, but the gauge reads ~25 deg too high (confirmed with IR gun)
could use 4 new ones, a little bouncy
needs calibration. reads about 10 mph too fast. I caused this when cleaning the
gauge cluster the first time
do not work, metal gears driving them are worn out. had trouble finding metal replacements at
the time of cluster restore (lots of plastic ones) so didn't fix them at that time. metal ones are
now available from long island corvette. typical problem with these cars
- mechanical tach does not work (tach drive gears in distributor need replacing)
