For sale: One of a kind custom 1971 Corvette with a 1969 nose clip. Not another one in the world like this one. It is black with purple and blue ghost flames, black interior. I've owned the car for 10 years and have replaced every thing except the 308 rear end. It has a 468 c.i. big block that was rebuilt in March and has 300 miles on it. A new Tremec TKO600 O.D. 5 speed top loader, good for 600+ hp, was installed at the time of the rebuild. The engine is ported, polished and the rotating mass is balanced. It has dual 4 barrel 600 cfm Edelbrock polished carbs and matching Edelbrock polished intake. It has an MSD 6AL ignition box with a 6000 rpm rev limiter, GM HEI distributor with an Accel high output coil, open chamber polished and ported 454 heads rebuild buy Outlaw Racing with Manley one piece stainless steel valves, racing springs, ceramic coated headers. It has March serpentine belt and pulleys, new high flow water pump, twin pusher electric fans, 11:1 TRW forged pistons, Seal Power Molley rings and Seal power main bearings and rod bearings. New high output oilpump, 65 p.s.i. A Comp Cl11-602-8 Hydraulic roller cam, roller lifters and roller rockers. A 7 quart Milodon oil pan. Rebuilt power steering pump and steering box, new starter. It has autocross suspension with Bilsteen shocks, 360 lb. rear mono spring, over sized sway bars. Baer cross drilled and slotted rotors, rebuilt calipers and new ceramic pads. Wheels are American Racing Torque Thruster II, 18" on the front and 20" on the back. Tires are Nitto's 275x35 ZR. The exhaust is 2 1/2" pipe, heat wrapped with Flowmaster Super 44's. The tranny tunnel and fire wall are also heat shielded. The clutch and pressure plate were replaced in '06 and have about 1500 miles on them. The radiator and heater core were replace 5 years ago. An new oversized driveline and new u-joints were installed at the time of the rebuild. It has plexiglass t-tops. Inside is very nice...black interior with 1982 Corvette seats, roll cage, 5 point Simpson Racing belts, fire extinguisher, Pioneer CD stereo, Zora Duntov signature steering wheel, battery cut off switch. All the gauges work, including the clock, speedo and tach. Now for the bad news, very little, the wiper door works, but for some reason the wipers don't. They did before the rebuild. I don't think it's anything serious. The paint is gorgous, $13,000 5 years ago. During the rebuild it magically got some surface scratches. The last picture shows some of the scratches on the hood and fender. It was taken right after I got it back from the rebuild. I've rubbed a lot of them out myself. A good color sanding and buffing will remove 99% of them. I guess my mechanic never heard of a fender cover. There is a nickel sized blister just under the passengers side door handle and a 1/2" crack, in the paint,on the hood scoop. I am taking it to a detailer on Wed. 6/17 to have the paint professionaly polished and buffed out. On a scale of 1-10 the paint is a 8-8.5. Some minor work required for show quality. There is a small hole in the carpet under the gas pedal, imagine that, and some minor cracking in the corner of the shift consel. It's a real head turner and very fast. Appraised May 2007 for $40,000, before the rebuild, intake upgrade and tranny swap. The original #'s matching Muncie M21 4 speed with linkage goes with the car. It has a low reserve and it is for sale locally. I reserve the right to end the auction early. Car is sold as is. Buyer responsable for transportation or pick up in person.

Canney sez: Sometimes it doesn't matter how much you throw at something, it just doesn't work out.
