Everything has been touched on this car short of taking the body off the frame. The body has never been off the frame. Original frame number stencil and original shim marks are there and have been preserved. Many body panels have AO Smith date stamps on the underside of them when AO Smith was managing quality control. This is a no hit body car. The car has had one repaint in 1996 of the original Rally Red color. Paint is a 9. Car is currently running Uniroyal Tiger Paw White Wall radials 205/75/R15 tires.

This car has a terrific California ownership history that goes with the car. The car has been in California for 47 of its 53 year life. Original owner (women) owned car for 31 years. She is 96 years old and I have developed a long distance friendship with her. She has written many letter to me describing her time owning the Corvette. All letters have been preserved. The second owner owned car for the next 14 years. I also have correspondence from him which I have preserved. I have documentation from all 4 previous owners. Both the first and second owners have sent me pictures of the car when they owned it. In Wisconsin the car is kept in a heated and humidity controlled garage.

The mileage is believed to be original. I don't have any service info regarding any major engine work done by previous owners. However the third owner at 133,334 had compression checked and all cylinders had compression readings between 195 and 200. The car runs great and I've had no need to do anything further with the engine. I did have the intake manifold boiled out and that combined with a new radiator makes the car run nice and cool at 170 degrees. I've put only 1,174 miles on the car during the last 5 years.

This is a multiple Top Flight Award Corvette that starts, runs, shifts smoothly, and stops as it should. It wouldn’t take much to make this a Duntov level car or drive it and enjoy it.
