Comments:We purchased this corvette on July 30, 2002. We purchased it to document how to restore a corvette and feature every step of the process on vettefinders.com.

Over the period of July 2002 to 2005, we restored the corvette by performing a full frame-off restoration.

The entire step by step process can be viewed here:

A summary of what was done:

Body removed from frame

Complete removal of interior

Complete disassembly of drivetrain and suspension

Frame acid dipped by restoration depot, then completely coated inside and out with PPG's DP90 (2 part epoxy)

New brake lines, brakes, rotors, pads from vette brakes and vansteel

Completely new rebuilt trailing arms, suspension, koni shocks, springs from vansteel

Rebuilt rear end from vansteel

Fiberglass rear spring from vansteel

Engine: new water pump, Edelbrock Performer aluminum intake, new 268H cam, new timing chain and gears, headers, custom full dual exhaust.

Completely new interior: carpet, steering wheel, dashboard, seats, insulation,carpet, windshield, door panels, dash

$5,000 spiral gray metallic paint job.

We are selling this corvette because neither of us are driving it and it is sitting for long periods undriven. We want someone to be able to enjoy this car.

In December 2013, we restored the fuel system, recoating the gas tank, adding a new sending unit and fuel pump as well as rebuilding the carb. All the brakes were checked over and bled as well. Car runs very well and sounds even better.

Known issues: The driver side headlight will come up but the passenger headlight needs some help. The speedometer is currently not working. The auto transmission doesn't want to shift automatically so we've been manually shifting the car from 1st, 2nd and 3rd. Reverse works fine. We have two different Mirrored t-tops, one is blue, the other is smoke.

The AC has not been reassembled and charged up and the original radio, speakers and antenna is out of the car.

This is a great Corvette as it only needs a new home and attention to complete the restoration. The car is a great attention-getter and turns heads whenever they hear that V8 rumbling down the street.
