Default F/S 92 C4 w/Blown head gasket 175k miles $2500 OBO

1992 Chevrolet Corvette, trade, $2500 OBO blown head gasket - in Mountain View, CA (near San Jose) 94040

http://sfbay.craigslist.org/sby/cto/3728959634.html has photos, glad to take pics of anything you wish and email them to you.

I am highly motivated to get it off my driveway, shopping for a late model C5 to replace it. I would consider a running motorcycle in trade.

It ran fine (thanks to a lot of help from this forum the last 20 years) till it overheated - in Feb 2013 I put in a new radiator, new belts and thermostat ($1000, have receipts, local garage) but two days later, the head gasket blew. It became a steam locomotive.

includes FSM full shop manual, heavily used.... but complete.

Clear title in hand, there is an AAA near my home, I'm a member, easy to do the title xfer and, I can have AAA tow it to you locally no charge. Looking only for a CASH buyer, no nonsense but negotiation is of course a given.

I'm second owner, bought it in cherry shape with 25k miles in 1994. It's been a daily driver ever since, mostly parked outside, well maintained mechanically but the interior and exterior especially have aged - interior is really ok, not 'like new' but not dumpy at all, non smoker.

black rose color
heater also gone, I bypassed it after having replaced it once years ago
CD player does not work, radio is good, STRONG AC
power windows work perfect but some of the switches could use replacing; door ajar switch has always been a problem, needs replaced

- rear speakers rebuilt once, the back ones are blown again, front are good

It ran great till this head gasket issue--------- steam then actual water came out the pipe, I shut it down immediately, I don't think there is rod or cylinder damage

-Dash display flashes, a short, not sure.
-turn signal broke, I have the new replacement part
- I have the painted top on, the glass top cracked but is included
-Black Rose color (eggplant) with tan interior, seats rough, I have 'ok' looking seat cover in place
-power seats work but not all the lumbar etc controls
-has new wheel bearings on 3 wheels
- 2nd replacement Optispark and water pump in the last 5000 miles, also starter, I have paperwork
-Exhaust in good shape, it smogged every year no problem

Body - a ding/2 inch square on the hood, the drivers rear quarter panel was repaired years ago, not perfectly, a little rough.\
Paint in the back VERY rough, lacquer peeled, I protected it and its not.. .awful but it needs paint
All the rubber needs replaced around windshield etc, it's dried/cracked; I have the main piece new it was $100, needs installed

I'll be honest about everything I know about the car. Ask anything or any advice on what to do with it, how to price or part it out - welcomed.
