This Corvette runs and drives excellent. This is one C3 that will hold its own against much newer performance cars and will never be embarrassed on a Hot Rod Power Tour or Corvette Club highway run. This car has the upgraded engine, transmission, cooling system, and suspension components. It is also a dry climate car with an excellent frame and birdcage.

The exterior displays the all original body and bonding strips intact throughout. The paint shows well with some minor flaws, chips here and there, primarily some nose chips, stress marks, again nothing major (see photos).

The interior has had a host of restoration work done and is in excellent condition.

Under the hood is the stout 406HP/439TQ 383 stroker smallblock V8 & upgraded Wilwood hydo-assist brake master cylinder along with power steering and air conditioning.

The undercarriage displays the excellent original chassis and upgraded suspension components front to back.
