Car lived all its life in Tampa Bay area and it shows 58K miles which are likely the actual miles.  It appears to be all original with the exception of an older paintjob which shows patina.  The overall condition of the car is truly nice.  It runs and drives like a low miler, gauges work, instruments work, horn works, clock works...  Vacuum system operates properly, also a new AC compressor was just installed and the system blows cold.  Glass tops are original, the one on driver's side has a crack in the corner. The original radio works too (aftermarket sound, pictured, does not convey with the car).  Undercarriage is pristine since, at delivery when new, it received and undercoating treatment.

Located in FLORIDA, we can assist with delivery nationwide and all over the world.  Corvette trades are considered, also assistance with financing is provided.
