Good Luck with the sale. When I was in PGH, I recall seeing this 'Vette at the Sunday Caste Village cruise. Always looked sharp!

That's pretty cool! Kind of a "retro" resto-mod!
GLWS, a lot of work has gone into that car.

New Standard GM/Delco Gas Shocks will be installed this weekend...Original owner states that shocks were replaced in 1990.....Hard to keep track on what has been changed or upgraded on these great cars..............

Sorry, I can't answer your question about the paint process...However the painter who painted the car in 1970 is still local here in Western Pa....I could find out, if interested.........

The garage background strongly indicates that car is in amazing condition. Someone is going to get a real jewel.

Like that color. Someone is going to get a super nice C1 with everything done well.

And at a great price. This one is much nicer than the ole 59 I had.
