This is a very nice surviving, unrestored car with matching numbers. Always garaged. I purchased this car about
nine years ago from a Corvette dealer based on the no-hit body, integrity and overall originality. Other than the
4-Speed, radio, shoulder belts and the fully tinted glass, it is a no option car. As a road race enthusiast, I
wanted it this way to feel the briskness of the road and the simplicity in ownership.
The original color is Goodwood Green. The car was painted in lacquer 35 years ago and it is holding up great with
no cracking but does have some nicks. This color is Riverside Gold that the original owner thought might look good
and he wanted a change. The Interior is 100 percent untouched original and only the carpet is showing any signs of
age. Even the original clear plastic floor mats are still with the car.
About nine out of ten mid-year Corvettes have blemishes and imperfections in the paint. It is just an inherent
trait with older fiberglass cars. So, in a sense, these cars always need paint jobs.
The original door waist seals and fuzzies are present and are in very good condition. This is where the window goes
down into the door...those outer seals.
The engine is matching numbers to the car’s original and unmolested data plate under the dash. It has never been
apart. All engine bay components are original and matching to the car. Only the water pump was replaced (original
is included). The engine does feature the dealer added correct 350hp alloy valve covers. I rebuilt the original
Holley carb with ethanol friendly components and used the blue Holley gaskets. I also just installed an ethanol
friendly OEM fuel pump.
In my ownership, I have replaced the rear mufflers with Magnaflows, added new stainless rear tips and new chrome
bezels. I replaced the rocker panel covers and replaced the sill covers. I rebuilt the left headlight motor so that
it matched the speed of the right side and I had the front end aligned with the steering wheel perfectly centered.
This cars drives tight and smooth. They are only original once.
The stance is excellent, nice and low and level from left to right. The car tracks perfectly down the highway and
is a joy to drive. There are no cracks on the dash top and no rips or tears in the seat upholstery. The engine is
quiet, transmission shifts perfectly and rear axle geared 3.36:1 is quite.
This is a great candidate to restore, scuff and respray back to Goodwood Green, convert to a 427 clone or
Pro-Tourer. I looked at over 25 cars before buying this car for it’s originality and perfect panel fit. The
bumpers were replaced with NOS units and they are pristine.
