It was treated as a collector car and driven sparingly since; 12000 miles since the 1982 rebuild. Recent recommissioning work (2019-2020) was done with the eye of maintaining originality. 4 date-code correct 1966 brake calipers & an original DC master cylinder were installed. A complete tune up including carb rebuild, points plugs, cap and rotor & correct "326" water pump were installed. The interior is in wonderful condition, with new window track felts, window crank handles and new vent handles as well. Dash pads, door panels & center armrest are original and received a complete cleaning and look amazing. In March 2020 it received a full detail, including, cleaning, compound and polish; the car looks amazing. T. The ORIGINAL LACQUER HARDTOP was polished out at this time. A new white headliner was installed. The replacement white soft top looks absolutely like the day it was installed; the caution tag is still in evidence on the rear window. Both soft & hard top rear windows are a 9.5 condition. Paint is absolutely stunning. Upon start-up it runs easily and has the correct high idle until kickdown brings it to a steady 800 rpm idle. Consistent 45+ PSI oil pressure when fully warmed up. Upon pulling away, the clutch takes up easily and the transmission shifts as designed. The performance is excellent; the engine makes great power and torque. The car drive as well as it looks, the steering is tight as is the suspension and new brakes work as designed. This car is amazing. Lots of documentation comes with the car including its original “Protecto-plate” (POP), manuals & many reciepts from its previous owner. This is a very RARE, EXTREMELY ORIGINAL, EARLY example of the 67 corvette roadster in perfect operating condition. Ready to drive & have fun or be NCRS / BLOOMINGTON judged.
