The color War Bonnet Yellow has become very popular with today’s Corvette collector market. This car has received only one single repaint; original paint throughout the door jams, inner fender area, front nose has beautiful body lines, headlights open and close effortlessly. Fender doors and hood have nice straight body lines, new replacement windshield, re printed in the mid 90’s. The print appears to be two stage base coat clear coat because the car has a really high gloss shiny wet look, a few minor flaws noticed in the 20 year paint, but overall has a very nice, straight driver quality finish – a 10 footer!

Turn heads everywhere you go with this mean sounding engine! Driver quality bumper over all very good. 15″ rally wheels, BF Goodrich TA Radials.  Undercarriage and frame look very clean painted with 60% gloss, many new suspension and front end parts, new exhaust system, e-brake works on this C-3 Big Block coupe. Original saddle leather seats, original door panels, super nice console. All the gauges work, factory shifter, fiber optics Corvette after market AM/FM Radio and CD Player, new weather strip, new replacement carpet, astro ventilation works. Original door glass, chrome door handles are excellent, fiber optics work, rally seems very minimally worn on the interior door panels, dash board, center e-brake console, factory seat belts with shoulder belt option.

Considered a driver quality big block coupe. Excellent performance!
