Vehicle Description:

Welcome to THE VETTE NET, the most experienced online Corvette broker service (founded in 1998). Whether you are buying or selling a Vette, we offer you our extensive knowledge and commitment to help make your transaction pleasant and professional. The Vette Net is a proud Lifetime Business Member of the National Corvette Museum.

We are pleased to bring to your attention a fine example of a rare combination: L82 engine, mated with the manual 4-speed transmission, also dressed in a rare color.

This Vette has only 60K documented miles and it is as close to a survivor as it one can be.  Pretty much everything is as it came from the factory.  Paint is original and shines very well, the bumpers being a different material (polyurethane) aged in a different manner giving it the right correct patina.  The interior also appears original: seat covers, dash, door panels, carpet, all in integral condition and showing only minimal signs of wear.  All the gauges and instruments are in working order, including clock (!), horn works, AC blow cold.  Car is so original that it still retains the old R12 refrigerant which is fully functional.   Vacuum operated headlights and all the other lights are functional.  Weatherstripping was likely replaced at some time as it looks too good to be original.

Under the hood you will see a virgin engine compartment, even with the original smog pump being still connected with the belts.   It has a new alternator and a new battery.  With only 60K miles, engine, transmission and all system are in functioning order as they should be.  Undercarriage is also very clean, tires are brand new!

Here is a great example of a late C3 with all the value enhancing features: L82 engine (27% of production), 4-speed transmission (7.5%), Brown Metallic (7.5%), with low documented miles (59K) and great condition. 

It is coming to you from TENNESSEE.  Shipping can be arranged all over the country and international.  Your inspection is welcome.
