Vehicle Description

 



HERE IS A CAR UP FOR AUCTION THAT SCREAMS THE OVER THE TOP '70'S FROM THE FULLY CUSTOMIZED BODY TO THE 15X10 AND 15X8 AMERICAN VECTORS, JUST THINK OF PULLING UP TO THE DISCO IN THIS TIME MACHINE, OK BACK TO REALITY, I HAVE A VERY SPOTTY HISTORY ON THIS CAR, I WAS TOLD IT WAS BUILT IN L.A. FOR A MOVIE STAR -PROBABLY NOT. BEEN TOLD ITS A MAGAZINE CAR-PROBABLY NOT. BEEN TOLD ITS A BARRIS CAR-NOT LIKELY. BUT HEY MAKE UP YOUR OWN HISTORY. WHAT I DO KNOW IS IT SAT BEHIND A GAS STATION IN MY AREA FOR YEARS, IT CLOSED AND HAD TO BE MOVED A FRIEND OF MINE BOUGHT A BUNCH OF STUFF FROM THERE AND THIS WAS ONE OF THE CARS. I SEEN IT AND HAD TO HAVE IT. IT HAD BEEN NEGLECTED FOR MANY YEARS BUT I DIDN'T CARE. IT WAS JUS DIFFERENT ENOUGH TO FIT INTO MY DRIVEWAY. IT TOOK ME ALMOST A YEAR TO GET IT BACK ON THE ROAD. BUT MID SUMMER IT MADE ITS COMEBACK.

I STRIPPED IT TO BARE GLASS AND PRIMED, BLOCKED AND PAINTED IT '98 CORVETTE TORCH RED. IT HAS A "PANEL" KIT FROM THE '70'S,FENDER SCOOPS FROM A '74? VETTE ON THE FENDERS,'74 REAR GLASS BUMPER,L-88 SCOOP, RECESSED QUAD HEADLIGHTS, CUSTOM GRILL OPENING WITH A '58 FORD GRILL INSERT. A PLEXI-GLASS REMOVABLE REAR WINDOW. THE ONLY REAL ISSUE WITH THE BODY IS THE UPPER LT FENDER IS MISS ALIGNED TO THE DOOR. NEEDS TO BE CUT AND REBONDED CORRECTLY?)

DRIVE TRAIN CONSISTS OF A 454 OF UNKNOWN YEAR WITH A SAGINAW 4 SPEED, GEAR DRIVE, BIGGER VALVES, BIGGER PUSHRODS,1.7 ROCKERS, BILLET HEI,11"GM CLUTCH SETUP, ELECTRIC FAN, RE-CORED RADIATOR, OLD STYLE TORQUE INTAKE, OLD FINNED VALVE COVERS, HOOKER BIG TUBE HEADERS, NEEDS THE CORRECT MOTOR MOUNTS INSTALLED TO LOWER THE ENGINE. THESE ARE INCLUDED, ALSO NEEDS A SHORT WATER PUMP. THEN A MECHANICAL FAN CAN BE INSTALLED. AS IT IS IT HEATS UP DURING PROLONGED IDLING. BUT THAT HASN'T BEEN AN ISSUE GOING TO CAR RUNS AND DRIVING IT TO WORK. WENT TO 1 RUN 100 MILES ROUND TRIP NOT A PROBLEM WAS ENCOUNTERED AND IT GOT A TROPHY). THE CHASSIS IS SOLID WITH NEW FRONT CALIPERS, NO RUST IT DRIVES NICE AND STRAIGHT. TIRES ARE OLD SCHOOL LR60X15 AND GR60X15 DUNLOP'S WITH 90% TREAD.

THE INTERIOR LOOKS TO BE UNTOUCHED FROM WHEN IT WAS ORIGINALLY BUILT, DASH PAD AND DOOR PANELS ARE NICE, GLASS IS GOOD. SEATS HAVE VELOUR INSERTS, DRIVERS SEAT HAS A BAD SEAM FROM GETTING IN AND OUT, COUPLE TRIM PIECES ARE BROKEN,

HERE ARE THE ISSUES THAT NEED ATTENTION: RT INSIDE DOOR HANDLE CAME UNHOOKED, NEEDS MIRRORS, A COUPLE GAUGES DON'T WORK, TACH DON'T WORK AS IT HAS A HEI DIST,THE WATER PUMP AND MOUNT ISSUE AS DESCRIBED BEFORE. ONCE IN A WHILE YOU HAVE TO PRIME IT AFTER IT HAS SAT FOR A WHILE. AND IT HAS A SLIGHT VIBRATION WAS TOLD A U-JOINT THIS MAY OR MAY NOT BE FIXED AT AUCTIONS END. THESE ARE THINGS THAT WOULD BE PRETTY EASY FIXES IF I QUIT DRIVING IT LONG ENOUGH TO DO THEM, I AM SELLING IT DUE TO MY REGULAR DRIVER TOOK A CRAP ON ME SO NOW I NEED A RIG TO GET ME THRU THE WINTER AS THIS ISN'T A BAD WEATHER CAR. AM LOOKING FOR SOMETHING COOL AND SOME CASH. THE MORE UNUSUAL THE BETTER, I'M STILL LOOKING FOR A LIME GREEN GREMLIN TO SET NEXT TO MY EDSEL!

IF YOU ARE LOOKING FOR A BLOOMINGTON GOLD OR NCRS. KEEP LOOKING BUT IF YOU WANT AN ATTENTION GETTING RIDE FOR CRUISE-INS TO TINKER ON WHILE YOU HAVE FUN THIS MAY BE IT.

I HAVE DESCRIBED IT AND WILLING TO SHOW THE CAR, SEND PICS, ANSWER QUESTIONS AS BEST I CAN, PLEASE REMEMBER THIS IS A 35+ YEAR OLD CAR, I HAVE A CLEAR OREGON TITLE IN MY NAME THAT WILL BE HANDED OVER UPON CLEARANCE OF FUNDS, I ALREADY HAVE A CASHIERS CHECK FROM NIGERIA SO I'M WISE TO THAT CRAP, I AM JUST A NORMAL GEAR HEAD TRYING TO HAVE FUN IN THE RODDING HOBBY.
