Vehicle Description
UP FOR AUCTION IS A 1979 CORVETTE L-82 , FACTORY 4,SPEED , MATCHING # CAR. I PURCHASED THIS CAR LAST FALL TO FINISH FOR A DRIVER, DUE TO UNFORSEEN SITUATIONS, I HAVE NOT HAD TIME TO FINISH/PAINT THE CAR, I ALSO NEED THE SPACE. THIS IS A GREAT CAR, RUNS AND DRIVES,ALL #'S MATCH, THE MILEAGE IS CORRECT, THE 4 SPEED TRANNY/CLUTCH FEEL 100%. THE STORY ON THIS CAR IS I BOUGHT IT FROM A FRIEND WHO WAS GOING TO FINISH IT, HE IN THE MEANTIME FOUND A 57 VETTE AND NATURALLY HE DECIDED TO GO WITH THE 57 AND DID OFFER ME FIRST CHANCE AT THE L-82, AND I TOOK IT. HE HAD PURCHASED THE CAR LOCALLY HERE IN TENNESSEE, THE PREVIOUS OWNER HAD DAMAGED THE FRONT NOSE OF THE CAR IN A MINOR ACCIDENT, HE DECIDED TO REPLACE THE FRONT BUMPER/CLIP INSTEAD OF DOING FIBERGLASS WORK, THE CAR WAS NOT HURT IN THE ACCCIDENT, JUST COSMETIC/FIBERGLASS, HE PULLED THE CLIP/BUMPER, PURCHASED A NEW CLIP/BUMPER AND PRE DRILLED THE FRONT CLIP HOLES BUT HAD NOT INSTALLED IT YET, HE WAS GOING TO DO SOME DETAILING IN THE ENGINE COMPARTMENT PRIOR TO SETTING THE CLIP ON AND PAINTING THE CAR, HE ALSO PULLED THE RADIATOR TO FLUSH,ETC WHILE THE CAR IS APART. ITS ACTUALLY IN THE PERFECT STAGE FOR SOMEONE THAT WANTS EVERYTHING UNDER THE HOOD DONE AS WELL,AS WELL AS GOING OVER MECHANICAL ITEMS, IT JUST MAKES EVERYTHING EASIER TO ACCESS, THE CLIP IS READY TO SET ON THE CAR AND GET READY TO WORK AND PAINT,AS IS THE REST OF THE CAR, AS YOU CAN SEE IN THE PICS, BASICALLY THE BODY HAS BEEN PREPARED, THE CAR STARTS RIGHT UP,SOUNDS GREAT, THE CARB WILL NEED GONE OVER, IT ACTS LIKE IT HAS A STUCK ACCEL PUMP, OTHER THAN THAT CAR RAN OUT FINE, INTERIOR, SEATS ARE NOT TORN,THEY NEED CLEANING, DOOR PANELS ARE IN GOOD SHAPE AS WELL, NO TEARS,T-TOPS ARE MIRRORED,FACTORY, NO CRACKS, DASH/CONSOLE LOOK FINE AS WELL. I TRYED TO SHOW PICS OF THE PARTS I HAVE ,IM SUPPOSED TO HAVE EVERY PART TO PUT THE CAR TOGTHER, IM SURE THER IS ALWAYS SOMTHING YOU JUST DONT HAVE,SO YOU WILL GET EVERYTHING I HAVE, I ALSO HAVE ANOTHER COMPLETE BOX OF ODDS AND ENDS THAT WERE NOT SHOWN IN THE PICS, I HAVE CHECKED THE #S, THEY MATCH, I HAVE AN ESTIMATE FOR $3,000 TO FINISH THE CAR FROM A SHOP THATS RESTORING MY MOPARS, THAT DOES A GOOD JOB, I CAN OFFER THAT TO THE BUYER IF NEEDED. THIS IS AN INVESTMENT, NOT A PURCHASE, THATS WHY I HAVE NOT BEEN CONCERNED WITH THE CAR SITTING IN MY GARAGE FOR THESE MONTHS, IF I DONT SELL IT, ILL FINISH IT, ITS JUST THAT I ALREADY HAVE 2 CARS IN FRONT OF IT TO BE FINISHED WHICH ARE ROADRUNNERS/CHALLENGERS THAT ARE $30,000 + CARS SO,...ANYWAY, I REALLY COULD USE SOME EXTRA ROOM WHEN THESE CARS ARE READY,TIRES ARE IN GREAT SHAPE,ORIGINAL VETTE RIMS,ALSO IN GREAT SHAPE, NOT CURBED,ETC., I HAVE ALL LENSES,LOGO'S/EMBLEMS ETC. THIS CAR IS MINIMUM $ 10,000 FINISHED DUE TO THE MILES/L-82 AND OF COURSE 4 SPEED W/AIR, BY THE WAY THE A/C I CANNOT PROMISE, ITS ALL THERE,BUT IM SURE IT WILL NEED CHARGED, BID TO OWN, I HAVE A CLEAR TENNESEE TITLE,CLEAN CARFAX AND IM GOING TO SELL THE CAR, TRANSPORTATION CAN BE PROVIDED AT BUYERS COST, NOT A PROBLEM, IF IVE MISSED ANYTHING,FEEL FREE TO EMAIL, THANKS, GOOD LUCK AND HAVE A BLESSED DAY!!!!
