1979 Corvette with about $10,000 in custom body work. It is powered by a new LS3 Engine and a Magnuson Supercharger. T56 Transmission, new performance clutch and new totally custom shocks. Upgraded control arms, suspension front and rear, Wilwood brake package, Douglas headers, full custom Magnaflow exhaust, Griffin radiator. Absolutely no rust on this thing. It has been kept garaged. All engine work and clutch and 91 Octane Street/Dyno tune was performed by Knight Performance in Peculiar. The car has Recaro cloth racing seats.
See a video of it running here:
It does need some work, mostly all electrical. Headlights although on the electric conversion kit (not vacuum) don't raise. The horn doesn't work, turn signal lights in the back of the car don't work, and there's an alarm on the car but it has been disabled. The speedometer is the only gauge that works, I hooked it up to a cell phone for gauges using the Bluetooth obd2 scanner and torque app. The battery has needed a jump lately to get started, so it may not have much life left but the car has been hibernating in the garage. The only other things I can think of are the parking brake and the normal brakes when pressed hard go to the right. Body wise, A few small scratches on the door and a little chip on the hood and spoiler.
I have a huge book of receipts for the car. Planning on moving soon and unfortunately this won't be able to go with me. Clean title in hand, super cheap to insure. For just a little more, can make the most unique daily car in the city and/or a definite car show winner.
Contact me with any questions and I will do my best to answer.
