Here is a sweet 88 Vette with 116k original miles and 4 speed transmission.    This is a very nice original car with new tires, brand new clutch, pressure plate/throw out bearing and new rear main seal plus fresh oil change and safety inspection.  I just spent around 1500 on all of this, it's ready to roll! Autocheck is clear with No Accidents reported! This car looks and drives excellent and is a classic being 26 years old.  Please call with questions at 949  2  8  5  -  8  0  1  1

Exterior wise, this car looks beautiful and sports an original paint job that looks great.  Paint condition is about an 8 out of 10.  See my video posted above as I try to point out all imperfections.    Wheels are original and have a bit of rash but overall look good.  Has power antenna which works good and all glass is in good shape.  As I said, autocheck is clear and shows zero accidents or issues, I can email this to you, just request it.

The interior is in good condition with some minor wear from 26 years of use.  There are no odd smells or cigarette smells to be concerned about.  Seats look good, drivers has a small wear hole on outside bolster but rest of seat is nice.  Carpeting is all original and has a wear heel wear hole on driver side heel area in front of seat(see picture).  Dash top is excellent with no cracks as well as center console and center armrest.  Steering wheel is clean as well as shift boot and all switches and electronic surfaces.  All display readouts work as they should.  Rear storage area looks excellent, both rear storage hatches are 100% intact.  Both door panels are in excellent shape, power windows work, power mirrors, and door locks.  Has tilt and telescopitc steering column.  Bose factory stereo system sounds good.  AC blows cold.

Mechanically, this Vette runs excellent and doesn't miss a beat.  I just replaced the clutch, pressure plate and throw out bearing and had the flywheel resurfaced.  While having this done my mechanic recommended changing the rear main seal as it had a small leak so it was taken care of.  I also had the oil changed and the car safety inspected.  Brakes are in good condition with lots of pad remaining.  AC blows ICE cold and heater warm.  Power steering works as it should.  Tires are Dayton ZR and they are near new and grip the road like a race car. 

Here is a nice Classic Vette.  Please call me with questions at  949  2  8  5  - 8  0 1  1
