Lot #1652 - This classic has just recently received an extensive professional restoration. Everything was cleaned, repaired, repainted, or replaced as required. The intent was to produce a dependable classic midyear to cruise around and show off in. Most of the original paint was still on the car when the restoration was started so the body didn't require much more than a re-spray in the original Riverside Red color. The top frame was sand blasted, repainted, then rebuilt and a new Al Knoch top installed. The tires and brakes were replaced, bumpers re-chromed, trim polished, and headlight door motors serviced. The folder of documentation and receipts will stay with the car. The engine is a solid early 350 built with a small cam, vintage manifold and headers. The factory side pipes have small glass pack mufflers added between them and the header collectors. The sound produced is softer than many side pipe cars without losing that classic throaty rumble. The original close ratio Muncie 4-speed transmission shifts very well with its nice tight vintage Mr. Gasket linkage. The rear end differential contains a 4:11 geared posi-traction. The original AM/FM radio is in place. A quartz clock replaces the original. The wipers wipe and the gauges gauge. One of the most important things is that the car stays cool. This Corvette is very solid.
