  I've decided to sell my 1972 LT-1 Convertible. Bought this as a project a few years back, but I have too many toys. Bought this in the D.C. area , from the original owner. Car was Raced around the area pretty regularly, untill around 1979, when it was put away in the back of an old garage and left. the owner decided to start the restoration, but health issues ensued and he was unable to continue.  The interior was 90 percent disassembled and the top end of the engine was apart. I did a complete and thorough cleaning of the interior and reassembled it with as many of the original parts as possible. The steering column was rebuilt, a new heater core added, and an aftermarket Retro Look stereo with  4 quality speakers,2 in the dash and two in the kick panels. All the guages work. I put in new carpet ,new seat foam and seat covers. Door panels are pretty decent but not perfect. I'd say the interior is about 80-90 percent.  I also have a new set of quality floor mats that are still in the wrapper.The fuel tank and sending unit were replaced with new (No build sheet on the tank:( )and the fuel lines were flushed. Changed the fluid in the transmission and rear end, added all new brakes including soft lines, pads, rotors,calipers master cylinder, and e brake. New shocks all around, and a complete overhaul of the front suspension, including all bushings, balljoints, inner and outer tie rod ends and an idler arm and swaybar end links and bushings. The car was then given a full four wheel alignment. The engine NOT ORIGINAL was pulled and disassembled, and rebuilt to give the feel of the great muscle car the LT-1 was. The stock forged steel crank, high performance rods,  and forged alluminum eyebrow pistons, and high performance balancer appear to be the original LT-1 pieces. The block is standard bore, and I used total seal gapless rings in the rebuild,as well as ARP hardware. The crank is standard on both the rods and mains. High volume oil pump, windage tray, and a correct corvette oil pan. The heads were not original, so I installed a new set of Patriot aluminum Angle plug closed chamber heads. The cam is a Comp Cams solid lifter cam with close to the original specs. The original distributor was rebuilt and a Petronics ignitor ellectronic conversion added. The original intake manifold is in place,and a new Holley 750 double pumper is under the original aircleaner.  The original valve covers are still in place. A trw double true roller chain set, and new aluminum  waterpump, starter and new clutch too. A Lakewood scatter shield is in place, The shifter is a Hurst with a retro orange shift ball. The alternator has the correct large pulley.The new radiator is an aftermarket alluminum as well. The 2 1/2" exhaust is all new with a set of ceramic coated headers and Walker dynomax mufflers with Pypes custom tips. The engine sounds great and runs strong. The frame is solid and has no obvious evidense of rust or damage. The entire headlight  vacuum system was rebuilt with all new lines and fittings. The black top is in pretty decent shape for it's age, but not perfect. No holes or tears, and the back window is in fairly good condition. but it is almost 50 years old. I installed all new top seals, but the door seals are old and beat. I planned on doing those when I got to the paint. The body and paint are old and tired. Lots of big chips, and less than stellar body work are evident (feather edging of chips was common back then). There is evidence of minor body work on the front and back. Nothing serious,and no frame damage. Original color was 987 Ontario Orange. I cleaned up the Centerline Champ 500 wheels, added new spinners and lug nuts, and a new set of tires. The car is fun to drive , looks good at 50 feet and gets lots of attension with the old school paint.My plan was to drive and enjoy it  for a few years before doing a full repaint.When I bought this, I hsd no intension of selling it, but times change. I've tried to be clear on the condition , but please feel free to ask questions.I'm a classic car fan, not a car dealer! Please don't bid if you don't intend to follow through.

Thanks for looking and have a great day!
