The car has always been kept in the Southeast Kansas and Southwest Missouri area. It was originally purchased in Pittsburg, Kansas at Bill Williams Chevrolet, then went to Joplin, Missouri and finally to the Branson, Missouri area.The current owner has stored the car in a climate controlled garage for the last 12 years. During this time, it has been driven an average of 250 miles per year - just enough to keep things well lubricated and operating properly. The car looks, runs, and drives like new. It has amazing cornering ability and hugs the road as well as the newer Corvettes.


There is lots of documentation including copies of all titles, original sales sticker, build sheet, and all maintenance records and receipts. Everything done to this car has invoices on repairs stating mileage of the car. It has been well maintained and is completely operational.
The current owner of the car is an auction analyst for Sports Car Market and American Car Collector magazines published by Keith Martin of the TV series What's My Car Worth? The owner rates this car a solid 2, which means that it is "Excellent: Club show worthy." It has won many local and regional awards in the Southwest Missouri region. He is selling the car to make room for another car in his collection.
