Due to a high bidder who couldn't communicate, let alone submit a deposit per the listing terms, I'm again offering up a low-mile Corvette. Here are the details:

This Vette is a daily driver, (have done 75 miles round trip each weekday with it), but it's definitely in need of some love. Here are all the issues I'm aware of:
* Right turn signal needs attention* Needs new battery--has trouble holding charge after a few days, probably due to a bad cell in the battery* Temp Control digital display comes on and off -- works, but will need some attention on certain buttons, which I think are causing the problem
* Breaker for trunk release is dead, but there is a manual cord to pull to get around that, which works just fine* Paint is original and has some imperfections in spots - it's a "ten footer"* Overdrive sometimes slips around 40-50 mph and causes service engine light to come on and off after about 10 minutes at freeway speeds. To get around this, I drive in lower gear ("D") and nothing goes wrong. You get more torque this way, but your fuel economy will probably only be in the 18-19 MPG region if you do it.* The left door lock works, but is touchy.* My regular mechanic said that the oil pans will eventually need a better plug* Might be leaking a bit of oil, or running rich, as starting it sometimes requires a bit of pressure on the gas pedal when you start it. Could be some o-rings that need replacing, or something to that effect.
BONUSES:I have receipts going back to the original owner, extra black decal striping, as well as a great bolt on wind deflector for when the targa top is off, which cuts down on wind drag, improves MPG, and allows you to go even faster when topless! Car also has some nice little extras like blacked out fog lights, a great embroidered dash cover, and black dipped rims.
This Vette would be great for a gear-head who can fix the issues and flip it for double the profit, or simply enjoy it themselves. I just started a home-based business and no longer have a commute, so it's time for my Vette to go in order to help pay for marketing--LOL
