Vehicle came out of Maryland. This car was acquired from the 3rd owner I believe. It was basically an original survivor that has had a repaint recently. Real SS car with some nice options! When I bought it I drove it all the way home to NY and did some minor work on it here and there as needed. Surprising how nice this car feels and rides. Almost everything in the car works, including the power windows, wipers, radio and even the horn!
Body is VERY STRAIGHT with excellent original gaps. Doors open and close flawlessly. I don't think you'll find a nicer original car for the money than this one!
Under the hood lies the factory 409ci/340hp 4bbl. motor. This is a REAL passenger car 409 with the "X" on the driver's side of the block, and even has the "409SS " on the dipstick. It has been upgraded with a Holley 750cfm 4bbl. double-pumper carburetor, MSD plug wires and external performance ignition coil, as well as full headers into dual exhaust. Radiator is also upgraded to an aluminum unit for better cooling (with original fan shroud mounted on it).
Mechanically it fires right up and sounds great. Transmission is solid and shifts good through all the gears without any noises or grinding. I drove the car about once a week, both around town and on the highway and it performs great. You can cruise with it on the highway all day at 65mph and I would trust it to drive anywhere at the drop of a hat. Very easy to drive with power steering and brakes.
Interior is basically all stock with no modifications. Seats are in good shape (small rip by lower driver's side from getting in and out). Carpet is older but presentable. Door panels are in decent shape, with a couple of small rips by the armrests. Headliner should be replaced. Dash has had a plastic "cap" put over the original, which had cracks in it. Steering wheel in fair shape with a few cracks. Console in fairly good shape. Sunvisors need to be redone/replaced. Overall very presentable for a nice driver. KEEP IN MIND THIS IS MOST LIKELY THE ORIGINAL AND UNMOLESTED INTERIOR IN THE CAR.
Underside has a GOOD FRAME on it. Normal scaly surface rust from decades of use. Floors appear to be in good shape overall with a couple of small areas that may need a small patch or two, but NO large holes. Trunk pan is SOLID and has had a patch on the middle flat section. Overall structurally sound and in good shape.
Chrome is original and presentable for a driver with some pitting throughout and minor surface rust. Bumpers should be replaced. Side trim looks fairly good but could use new tape inserts to make it pop.
Previous owner gave me a bunch of parts for this car as well so they are available to the winning bidder at an additional price if desired:
1) new gas tank
2) new trunk weatherstripping
3) used front bumper ends
4) new rear license plate trim piece
5) new rear taillight housings
6) new interior scuff plates
7) various other minor odds and ends
The old girl is NOT perfect by any means of course so please keep that in mind when bidding. Paint is in FAIR/GOOD overall shape throughout (could use a good wetsand and buff as it has some orange peel here and there and could have been prepped better before painting of course), with various imperfections throughout as it was NOT a $10K paintjob. Looks good from 20 feet. Not working: gas gauge (needs new sending unit), clock, windows work but are rather slow, tachometer (not connected), perhaps a bulb or two could use replacing. Carburetor needs to be primed when first started. Window trim is pitted and has rust spots in various places. Missing: cowl tag, door and trunk weatherstripping, driver's side sunvisor. A couple of the tires need replacing due to dry rot. Exhaust has a rattle and needs one hanger replaced.
So overall she is not perfect and to do it justice should be completely restored, or you can just drive it as is. Please note, I cannot remember every single issue with the car, nor do I know everything wrong with it, as it is after all over 50 years old so keep that in mind.
If you just want a GOOD LOOKING ORIGINAL SURVIVOR that runs/drives great and is loaded with rare options, then this is the car for you. If you want a show car, it will need a considerable amount of restoration to bring it up to that level of course. I ENCOURAGE ANYONE BIDDING OR SERIOUSLY INTERESTED TO COME LOOK AT IT IN PERSON. I WILL BE GLAD TO SHOW IT TO YOU TOP TO BOTTOM SO YOU KNOW EXACTLY WHAT YOU'RE GETTING INTO.

The official debut of the 2014 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray is only part of the excitement for fans of Chevy's virtuoso sportscar. Although we got to see the car and some of its preliminary specs in Detroit and Geneva, there is still no word on pricing and some of the juicier data points we've been waiting for - such as confirmed power output, EPA estimated mileage figures and performance numbers. Until then, CorvetteBlogger has gotten its hands on the order guide for the coupe version of the car - in both base and Z51 iterations - revealing tidbits like standard and optional features and available color combinations. Some other new details made it onto the order guide, such as our first interior specs for the coupe including slightly less hip room and headroom, more shoulder room and the same amount of legroom. To see the full order guide, head on over to CorvetteBlogger. From what we can gather, it sounds like more information will be revealed on April 25 during a party at the Corvette Museum, and for those sun worshipers patiently waiting for a convertible, it would appear you've got another model year to wait through.
As inventory of the Chevrolet Malibu and Buick LaCrosse continues to pile up, General Motors will be idling its Fairfax Assembly Plant for two weeks, according to Automotive News. This move comes about a month after the plant was shut down for three weeks in late December and early January for the same reason. As of January 31, the GM had a 94-day supply of Malibu stock while the LaCrosse was a little worse with a 117-day supply. Just last week, GM announced that it would be investing $600 million in upgrading this plant, but it's unclear what future plans the company has in store for Fairfax considering slow sales of both the plant's models. We do expect a refreshed and more luxurious LaCrosse shortly and an early design update for the Malibu to be announced at some point this year, although we have had no official word as to when either will happen.
While most of the world is still coming down from all the hype surrounding the debut of the 2014 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray at the Detroit Auto Show earlier this month, we're already looking to the future. And according to Autoweek, the next chapter in the C7 story will unfold at the Geneva Motor Show in March. That's right, General Motors is reportedly using the Swiss stage as its venue to debut the Corvette Stingray convertible. If this strikes you as odd, you aren't alone. After all, with a car that's such an American icon, we'd fully expect Chevrolet to unveil it here on our shores in either Chicago or New York. But according to Autoweek, GM is looking to boost export sales of its halo car, and since the C7 was engineered to compete with the world's best and brightest, showing it off in Geneva is somewhat of a smart move. What's more, those with sharp memories will recall that GM used the Geneva expo to debut the sixth-generation C6 Corvette convertible back in March 2004, so there's also a precedent. Details surrounding the Corvette Stingray convertible are still slim, though we fully expect the 6.2-liter V8 and choice of either six-speed automatic or seven-speed manual transmissions to carry over unchanged. Prototypes spotted on the road showed the car fitted with a cloth convertible roof, as well.
