Description

Lot #746.1 - Two owner car and original owner and family had it until 2006, when it was purchased by the current second owner. All original paperwork was saved and sells with car including Window Sticker, dealer invoice, owner's manual, dealer sales brochure, purchasers receipt, Corvette owner lapel pin, original keys, first plates, loan docs, payment coupons and NCRS scoring results from May 1981. Two tone exterior colors are Honduras Maroon and Ermine White. Interior and softtop are black. Options include hardtop, softtop, 283/230hp V8, 4-speed transmission, Wonder Bar radio, deluxe heater, windshield washer, wide white wall tires including spare and courtesy light. It was then completely reconditioned and this included fresh rebuilt front end suspension, exhaust system, engine, shocks, radiator, heater core, gas tank, brake system, extensive detailing of engine compartment, undercarriage, interior and exterior. Retains much of its originality and history including factory interior, trim, trunk mat, spare tire cover, tire jack and mechanical parts. History documents show one repaint to original factory correct color in 1980 which shows exceptional quality still today. Vehicle has less than 98,500 original miles and is all matching numbers, except engine block. Engine was completely rebuilt to correct 283 factory specs around 92,000 miles, so engine is fresh.
