The restoration started with a nice car to begin with. Only the best parts and upgrades were used. Here's a brief list:

The Vette is an absolute blast to drive especially with the T-Tops removed and she gets the attention when driving down the road. The 496 gives the driver plenty of HP to keep the Adrenalin flowing. The transmission shifts extremely smooth. The clutch is easy to work. The exhaust tone has a low, muscle-car, big block rumble. The Midnight Blue paint is in B+ shape. There are two cracks in the fiberglass (see photos; the front bumper cover and the right-front fender) but they could be repaired. The horn has recently quit on me. I'm getting 12v to the horn but no sound. I tried to buy a good used GM horn, but couldn't find one. I would send it to off to be rebuilt. The AM/FM Stereo radio works great as it was rebuilt which included having the the speakers re-coned. The power windows work great. All the gauges work great, even the clock. The A/C blows cold. The Vette wears the original glass with the 'Astro Ventilation' logo on both the door windows. Vette has BFG tires with very few miles. The interior is in A or A+ shape. The beautiful leather is tight with no tears, etc. The cowl induction system is functional; feeds fresh air to the carb when the throttle is 'dropped'. The car handles like a Vette; nice and tight. She tracks straight as an arrow. Pop-up headlights work great as do the wipers and washer. The undercarriage is as clean as it gets (I wish I could have posted more photos). The car leaks nothing.
These LS4's Vettes are rare. Only 4412 were made in 1973. BTW, an LS4 in '73 had more HP than anything in '72.
I have a good clean Texas title. I'm having to sell this wonderful car because I have no place to keep it, hence the low starting point for this auction. I'm happy to answer any questions; don't hesitate.
