The interior, also in red, remains in excellent shape and is believed to be original, providing an authentic experience for potential owners.
Functionally, the Corvette is equally impressive. All the gauges are operational and precisely calibrated. The body panels, headlight buckets, and hood exhibit even gaps and excellent alignment, pointing to the quality of the vehicle's assembly. The bird cage—an essential structural component—is also in exceptional shape.
Complementing its appearance, the car's glass is new and devoid of chips or cracks. The redline tires are in excellent condition, boasting ample tread without any signs of dry rot. The rally wheels contribute to the vehicle's overall stunning appearance.
Mechanically, the car features an automatic transmission and a powerful 427/390 engine, rendering it not just a showpiece but a high-performing vehicle. The engine compartment is clean, detailed, and complete with chrome shielding and GM hoses. The factory-installed power steering offers smooth handling, enhancing the driving experience.
