The SportWagon features its original drivetrain with a 350-cid/270-hp V8 under the hood which is coupled to a 3-speed Turbo Hydra-Matic auto transmission. All the ignition shielding is in place and the car is mechanically perfect.

The exterior color is called Custom Ginger Honey and the interior is custom Coffee Brown. As the car is a 1971 model, it still retains its chrome bumpers.

All the paint work is original and has minor cracks. Interior still looks like when the car was buildt.

The car has 3 speed automatic, PB, PS, PW, AC, tilt/telescoop steering wheel, 2 set of t-tops, original corvette aluminium wheels, Sidepipes.

The car has only run 51.196 miles.

We got this email confirmation from Chuck Miller:

"Hi ... So nice get your email. Yes I did build and I personally own the Corvette that you just purchased. To my best recollection I built the car in 1975-76. I had chrome reverse wheels on it, not the one that is on it now. I also don't think I had side exhaust on it There was one other one like yours that was built, but it is gone now. You might have the only one.

I myself build and owned three or four wagons back then, and still own one today. In the 70s I built 15-20 vette wagons for a lot of customers, as well as selling kits for them to convert themselves.Yours was one of my favorite. I should have kept it but you can't keep them all.

All through the 70s I was busy building a lot of show cars, Red Baron, Sonic Cuda,Zingers, Fire Truck, Rapid Transit System for Chrysler Corp. etc.

If I can be of any more help feel free to email me.

All the best to you and enjoy driving your new Corvette.

Chuck Miller"
