Good running strong engine. This Corvette has been tastefully upgraded by professional mechanics with quality parts to make one mean machine with 400+hp. This was a daily driver for years but has been sidelined for some time due to other vehicles and projects. Currently garage stored as "non op"and gets a start up and run for a few miles regularly to keep fluids fresh and parts moving. All fluids are changed on regular intervals and are currently fresh with new oil, and coolant. Premium fuel in the tank always.

This car is for someone who knows how to drive a powerful manual already unless you plan to spend time in an empty lot getting used to it.

Breaking system is a set of premium racing"Bear"breaks with vented rotors all around.
K&N Air intake and filter.
BBK throttle body.
Large bore high flow exhaust.
Z51 rim package with wide 315 rear and 285 front.
New plug wires.
recently replace water pump.
Just installed new 500hp rated clutch full assembly including slave.
premium Alpine head with x2 10" subs behind the seats and amp. Professional installation was close to 2k and sound is amazing.

Miles are high on OD however engine was freshened with rebuild performed @ approx. 135k. Engine was never blown or damaged rebuild was preventative and done when power upgrades were performed.

Starts every time always has been a reliable runner and sounds great.

CHK ENG light started coming on with the "Mass airflow sensor" as only code to ever show. Have not bought a new one yet $250-300 may be resolved by time of sale.

Doug Nash 4+3 manual trans has an OD unit that is slipping in the ECO MPG friendly mode, this is how it gets smoged in CA and needs to be replaced or rebuilt to achieve good commuter mileage. In Raw 4speed mode it drives fine other than deceleration in 2nd gear which can pop out of gear under heavy load (not a problem on acceleration ever). It has done this as long as I have owned it and does not affect the ability to enjoy driving it. All and all it needs some tranny work but does drive fine this is the only reason its not listed for more.

Heater core has been bypassed but new one comes with it. Rear tires are near bald, front have a some life still.

Rims, Stereo, and break package alone could be parted for near 5k and a lot more is there so id rather sell as a whole car that need a a little work rather than tear it down.
