Default Must Sell 79 L82 Red on Red Corvette

Did not sell on ebay.
Bottom dollar on this car. $16500.00

I recently lost my job and unfortunately will have to sell my vette. I have done a whole lot of work on this car since I last posted it on here. I need to get it cleaned up, adjust the choke on the carb., but other than that, this car is perfect. I will try to list everything I have done to the car since I have owned it for the past 2 years. I have every receipt showing what I have spent on the car. Over $25000.00 invested.
I bought this car from the original owner out of Texas and have documentation to prove it. I am the second owner

Only 30450 original miles on this car.

The pic of the engine is before I had the valve covers repainted and the engine freshend up.

Repainted the car last year to remove pinstripes that were added to the car by previous owner. $2500.00 paint job that looks good, but is not perfect.
All new suspension bushings replaced with polyurethane long lasting bushings
New idler arms, tie rods, and 4 wheel alignment.
4 Brand new Goodyear GT II tires all around, correct size for the car
Replaced spoke wheels with original rally's
Replaced all rotors with high performance GM slotted rotors
Replaced all brake pads including parking brakes
Replaced front brake hoses and wheel calipers, cleaned rear calipers and painted all with high temp paint
Replaced power steering hoses
Repacked the front bearings
Took valve covers off and repainted and replaced gaskets
Rebuilt original carb.
Everything works except the clock. Just haven't had the time to pull it out and work on it.
Includes 4 extra cans of R12 freon for a/c, which works by the way
Only 6404 Red on Red L82 Vettes every produced making it a rare find.
New Battery, new alternator, new thermostate, fresh oil change and transmission serviced.
Still need to adjust parking brakes, but will try to get done before selling
I have the original build sheet to the car
Includes all new hose kits for the car, not installed
Original T-top carry bag as well as the covers for them
Also have a replacement fan shroud to replace original one that is broken on top.
Rear speaker mounts and covers including matching interior paint for covers, not yet installed.
Car has an am/fm/cass radio, pw, pdl, tilt/telescoping wheel, rear window defogger, a/c A/T, 350 L82 225 H/O engine, 4 wheel disc brakes, and is really a great car. I hate to have to sell it, but, not having a job is forcing me to. If you have any questions, please call me at 615-405-2562 and you WILL get an HONEST answer.

This car has been garaged all its life. I pulled the kick panels off to look at the birdcage, and the bushings looked new with NO rust at all. Only minor suface rust underneath. Feel free to come and look at the car anytime. I live in Middle Tennessee. Email [email protected]
