A high quality, full restoration was completed in 2000 by a gentleman in Kansas City, Missouri. The car was originally Silver Blue, and was repainted in Torch Red (a 2002 Corvette paint), and Classic White. The original hardtop was restored and painted Classic White. It has never been installed on the car since restoration, and the plastic covering the window is still in place. No soft top was installed. The bucket seats were covered in a rich black leather, and a leather wrapped steering wheel was installed.

The following condition report, while thorough, is not exhaustive as vintage cars have inherent wear and imperfections. We welcome personal inspections.

The 25 year old paint is mostly flawless; chrome was re-plated and appears to be high quality; tires are from the restoration and are aged, although in very good condition; loose steering was corrected by tightening the pivot point; temperature gauge corrected; no apparent concerns.
