Brief Overview, High-Level Info:  The car comes with the original stock L98 , which has the Bosch Tuned Port Injection system, and  automatic transmission.   There were 39,729 corvettes built for the production year 1985.  My car is 1 of 3,579 built with factory paint code '81' (Bright Red) and interior code red leather and red carpet.  

 Overall Vehicle Condition:   The car should considered a Condition #2 car or Excellent condition for it's age - (Condition #1 would be cars that are completely flawless cars and are the best of the best.  The car should present the same as it did when it was built, flawless).  Condition #2 essentially means the car could win local/regional events and shows, it may have flaws.   The car should represent it's era well and be of the nicest condition possible. The car currently has 69,616 miles on it - it gets driven sometimes so that may go up a little by the time the car is sold, but it would not be a significant amount.

 Vehicle Condition Details:  There are some slight issues/problems/concerns with any of the body, and interior on the car.  The acrylic Roof panel is still in Excellent condition, as well as all of the weather-stripping - original ratchet tool to remove the roof and owner's manual are included.  The car presents original and has a slow  Air Conditioning system leaked. Usually gets it's freon filled in spring and it stays ice cold all summer.  The car has also had the tires, battery, and exhaust changed.  I haven't owned the car for it's entire history.  Paint appears to be in above-average condition;  minor webbing in the paint on back bumper, the paint shows great for the age of car.    Interior is as expected wear shows in the leather seats, center console dash panels.  The instrument cluster works as originally designed and does not have any blacked out spots.  The door thresholds have no wear from climbing in and out of the car because they have custom cover.  As seen in a lot of older cars, the rear carpet shows some signs of age; some of the carpet pile fibers appear to have been vacuumed a little aggressive. The back / rear hatch hydraulic forks need adjustment or replacement they do not stay up on their own. I have owned this car for over 10 years and it has been summer driven and garage kept.

 I have the car for sale through word-of-mouth and some other listing services also, if no bids have been placed I reserve the right to end this listing at any time..

Shipping:  Buyer is responsible for ALL pick up and shipping expenses.

When you arrange shipping you need to make sure your driver is aware that this car only has a front-end curb clearance of 3".

2014 Chevrolet Silverado tows in new configurator, microsite

Mon, 21 Jan 2013 16:05:00 EST

Judging by your continued enthusiastic response to configurator notices, dear reader, you enjoy speccing out new cars as much as we do. Better still, there tends to be even more ways to personalize, configure and bloat theoretical MSRPs on full-size trucks as there are with more ordinary passenger cars. In addition to trim level, engine and transmission choices, truck buyers usually have to specify items like cab configuration, bed length, number of driven axles, tow packages, gear ratios and all sorts of bits and bobs.
That's why we're pleased to see the DIY specification utility for the 2014 Chevrolet Silverado come alive so soon after this week's Detroit Auto Show debut. While the configurator lacks pricing (General Motors hasn't announced numbers yet) and full options, you can still spec out your half-ton rig, and even print it out or email it to your friends. Beyond the configurator, the new model-specific site is pretty cool, too, with various videos and closer looks at the truck's new features.
The new Chevrolet pickup range won't be on dealer lots until sometime this summer, so whether you're a building contractor, an avid sportsman or just a guy or gal that loves full-size trucks, you might want to check out the link below to keep your appetite whetted. If you're more of a Sierra fan, well, it looks like you're going to have to wait a while - GMC hasn't updated its site yet.

Chevy Chaparral 2X Vision Gran Turismo concept blends the past and the future

Wed, 19 Nov 2014 15:01:00 EST

The Chevrolet Chaparral 2X Vision Gran Turismo is the rare concept car that salutes a seminal moment in history, yet also borders on science fiction.
Revealed Wednesday at the Los Angeles Auto Show, the concept uses the name of one of Chevy's historic racing partnerships, with Chaparral Racing, which dates to the 1960s. Chaparrals raced successfully at a range of levels, including IndyCar, Trans-Am and SCCA competition.
But the history ends there, as the concept's main purpose is as a racecar in a downloadable update for the PlayStation 3 game Gran Turismo 6.

Final C6 Corvette built in Bowling Green

Fri, 01 Mar 2013 14:15:00 EST

With all of the attention given to the 2014 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray lately, you could be forgiven for thinking that it's already well along in production, yet tooling up for the new C7 has only just begun. In fact, production of the outgoing C6 generation in Bowling Green, Kentucky just halted on Thursday.
As the C6 has aged, production numbers have predictably ebbed along with demand, but this year, the addition of the 427 and 60th anniversary models resulted in an uptick in vehicles built - this, despite a model year shortened by around 25 percent to accomodate the new model changeover. The final C6 Corvette ever, No. 13,466 built this year, was a white 427 Convertible destined for the General Motors Heritage Center museum. The car's 7.0-liter V8 heart was assembled by Corvette chief engineer Tadge Juechter himself.
In total, Bowling Green pushed out 215,100 C6 Corvettes over nine years. If you're still a C6 fan at heart and are hoping to get a good deal on a phase-out model, step lively - Chevrolet reportedly had about 6,100 unsold units, which Autoweek suggests is good for around five and a half months of supply at the model's current sales rates. Given that demand will likely slacken even further as the C7 draws closer, that should be a big enough stockpile to keep dealers satisfied until 2014 Stingrays begin showing up on their forecourts in December.
