Default 1975 4-speed convertible

Offered for sale is my 1975 Corvette convertible. I am asking $17,500. This is full numbers matching car, engine and transmission. This is a very rare option combination with the 4-speed manual Super T-10 transmission and air conditioned, although the compressor is not hooked up. This is not a Barrett-Jackson car, it’s my daily driver with 30881 on the odometer, although it has rolled over. Many of the unforeseen little peculiarities that are common to the 1975 have been remedied. The front cross-member has been fully welded and reinforced, the tachometer has been fixed, the radiator has a high density core, the exhaust system has been replaced with a real dual system that works and most everything on the car has been rebuilt/refurbished, including new trailing arm bushings. The original engine has been rebuilt and has about 90,000 miles on it and is in excellent condition. The engine also has a modern one-piece pan gasket, so no more drips on the floor like original engines. I have owned and driven this car for the past 38 years and it has always been garage kept, every night in southern California. I don’t need to sell the car but I’m 75 and have reached a different point in my life. Car is sold as is, where is, no warrantees expressed or implied. The only payment option wire transfer.

As for the engine rebuild it is .030 over on the stock block. An item of non-originality is the cylinder heads. They are early ‘90’s cast iron, fast burn / swirl port heads from police/light truck applications that yield approximately 10:1 compression ratio and make a vast improvement over the stock heads. They have also have a fresh valve job recently with new valve guides and seats. The pistons are hypereutectic flat top. It has a high pressure/high flow oil pump, roller timing chain, Edelbrock 2101 intake manifold with the original Q-jet carburetor. The cam is a very mild Crane 272 degree dual pattern hydraulic. Under some conditions, like cold, it will show a little idle irregularity, but not objectionable. All in all, it’s a very well mannered engine that puts out about twice the power of the original stock boat anchor.

Yes, I would have to dig up all of my records of the engine build for the exact number. As stated, most recently the heads have been recently rebuilt with new guides seals and seats.
