Before you and up for bid at NO RESERVE, is my 1979 CHEVROLET CHEVETTE 5 door hatchback. The particulars of the Chevette are as follows:
* One owner car purchased new by my grandmother from Bill Kieran Chevy, Cadillac, Pontiac in Pawling, NY on November 10,1978. (She was 72 at that time)
* ONLY 36,204 actual miles! Truly the little elderly lady car. (she hated to be referred to as old) market, feed store, church and bingo pretty much summarizes its use. She steered clear of Dr.'s, and lived to be 96.
* The car was always indoor garage stored when not in use.
* Save for items that necessitated replacement given to time, wear or safety, the car is all original. A car can be restored 20 times, it is only original once!
* Non-smoker owned
* NO Accident history, all original paint that presents with a very nice reflection at 40 years of age. I did one compound to remove build up and oxidized paint, and one Liquid Glass hand polish. The results are amazing!
* NO rust or rot, never had any. One small golf ball size dent on the right rear upper quarter panel. (see pic)
* The car was last plated in 2012. My father would start and drive the car around the neighborhood in upstate NY regularly to keep the fluids flowing through.
* 1.6 liter 4 cylinder engine, NO annoying drips or leaks
* I replaced the fuel pump and put in a new set of spark plugs. It turns right over and is driveable. The car will necessitate having the carburetor rebuilt or as inexpensive as carburetors are for these cars, replaced. I would opt for the rebuild to keep the car as original as possible. The brakes should be gone through too.
* The regular use tires are fair, though old and should be replaced. The car comes with 6 steel wheels, two of which have snow tires mounted. These too saw minimal use and while old, still hold air. Tire's for this car can be purchased for under $40 ea. All 4 hubcaps are included, 3 are very nice, the fourth has separated from the outer ring.
* Original spare, jack and tire tool
* The muffler has a hole, muff's are also inexpensive.
* Excellent interior. NO tears or upholstery wear front or rear
* Rear seat folds flat for cargo, protective rubber cargo area mat
* Front and rear rubber floor mats, nice condition
* Perfect dash, NO cracks!!
* Excellent original glass throughout including the windshield
* All 4 windows roll up and down properly
* All 4 doors lock and unlock properly
* The door locks also properly lock and unlock by key
* All weatherstripping and gaskets are soft and pliable
* Automatic transmission, shifts smoothly throughout
* All gauges and function monitoring lights are fully operational
* Glove box door opens and closes properly
* Factory AM radio plays fine
* Emergency brake holds firmly
* Carpets are good, no wear or holes though there are a few small stains
* Perfect headliner
* Nice steering wheel, NO cracks
* Very good door panels, the driver's side front shows slightly the affect of the sun having peered through the barn window.
* Heat and defrost operate properly
* All safety and convenience features are fully operational ( lights, signals, courtesy lamp, ignition buzzer, horn, wipers )
* All knobs, buttons, and stalks are present
* All model and manufacture emblems are present
* Nice chrome bumpers front and rear, NO pitting or discoloration
* Very nice grill, NO breaks
* The hatch unlocks properly by key, the gas cartridges will no longer support the weight of the hatch.
* All original paperwork and related documentation, service history, owners manuals, supplemental operational pamphlets, and keys will be included.
At 40 years of age, the CHEVETTE is in remarkable condition! It is a testament to the minimal use and conscientious care it was accorded.
Not many of these Chevy's survived. It could easily be a daily driver, perhaps a "retro-UBER"..."Vette"!!
