Description:

I purchased this car in 2003 as a project car. It started out with green exterior and tan interior. Since that time I have had two children and have really lost interest in the project aspect of this car. However. it is in a really good spot for a new owner to take it over and make it great. It is currently road worthy. In fact. since the weather has been warmer I have been taking my kids for rides in it in the evenings!

Here is a listing of things that I have done to this car:

New plugs/wiresNew distributorNew vacuum hosesCleaned carburetorNew brakes calipers. pads. and rotorsRe-packed wheel bearingsNew shocksNew starterRe-carpeted interiorInstalled new seats with black leatherInstalled new seat belts (black)Removed all vinyl interior components which were tan and cleaned and painted them with black flexible paintBuild custom mounts for two 6" X 9" speakers and a 600 watt amp in the backReplaced front speakers and installed capacitors to keep bass out of themHad the exterior painted Dodge Viper Red (a pro did this. I am not equipped to paint a car)Installed a new fiberglass front bumper cover to replace the old. cracked plastic onePurchased and installed all new emblems (except the rear "CORVETTE" emblem. it is the original)Installed new weather stripping on the doors

Here is a list of things I know to be wrong with the car:

Driver's door armrest screws have stripped out from the door. It does not hold firm. May just need larger screws. Door locks operate poorly. They can be manually locked/unlocked. but the power locks do not have enough power to move them. Something in the passenger door rattles when you hit bumps. I feel the old Rochester carburetor needs to be rebuilt or replaced. It starts a bit hard when the engine is cold. Both side windows need to be adjusted to go higher when closed. They do not form a good seal at the top and water can get in. Some weather stripping needs to be replaced. I will provide it with the car. as I purchased a complete set but just have not installed it all. The rear end makes some creaking noises when in reverse. Not sure if it is the differential or the suspension. Coolant temperature gage does not work. The air conditioning compressor was not connected via a belt when I bought the car. I never replaced the belt because I don't need A/C in this car. No idea if it works.

Other things to note:

I will provide a set of headers (brand new) which I purchased for this car but never installed. The spare tire. the mount. and the cover are currently not on the car. I will provide them to the buyer. Feel free to call. I will be very open and honest about this car as I want to be sure a buyer knows everything he or she can prior to making a decision.
