Default 1993 Corvette with Forged and Cammed 383 LT1 Stroker -- $7500 OBO, Atlanta

I'm new here, but I figured where better to sell a (fairly) highly modified Corvette than Corvette Forum, so here I am. You guys can appre If I'm breaking a rule or I need to have a certain number of posts before I can post here, sorry, my mistake. Message me and I'll do whatever I can to fix the problem.
If you have any questions about the car or want to talk on the phone, send me a message.
The car is in Atlanta.

Anyway, I'll post details below, but the basics are that it has about $5000 of engine work (LT1 stroked to 383 with a forged rotating assembly), a $3100 Streetfighter TH700R4/4L60 transmission from TCI, and 3.73 rear gears -- car is fast, loud, and a TON of fun (also gets a TON of compliments and thumbs ups). I have receipts for almost everything I mention in this post, and have included photos of receipts of the major components; if you want a photo of a specific receipt, just ask.

The air conditioning still works great, and the seats are in great shape (they've been replaced), so it's still quite streetable. I mostly just cruise around with the targa top off when the weather's nice (and it's usually garage kept, too), but there's no reason you couldn't drive it daily if you wanted to.
If you want to hear it, here's a URL of a video of it running/revving. The quality's not quite as good as when sent by text (I can send it by text if you want), but with headphones it's decent. That's condensation, not smoke.

To answer the most common questions:
-No, I haven't had it on a dyno.
-I can send the VIN on request.
-Yes, you can drive it home long-distance if you want (oil just changed, transmission fluid recently changed, wiper blades just replaced, the battery's an Everstart Maxx 5-year battery that's only 1 year old, the brakes are fine, and the tires have plenty of tread and no dry rot or abnormal wear-- so the car's all good to go for a road trip). If you commit to buying it, I'll even put some heatshielding in for the drive home, if I have time (as some probably know, the console and floorboards can get pretty hot in these C4s after a long drive).
-It's tagged, titled (clean title, no liens, and no accident or salvage history), and insured in my name.

I'm really looking for cash, but I could potentially be interested in trading up to a C5 (manual transmission only) or C5 Z06, or down to a second generation MR2 Turbo. But, I'd prefer cash.
My price is slightly negotiable, but with high-mileage stock LT1/auto cars with decent paing bringing $4500, and this car having $8000 of modifications, I think the price is probably fair. It's definitely cheaper than buying and "building up" a similar car yourself, that's for sure.
If you want it delivered within 125 miles of Atlanta, we could probably work something out... If you want it delivered further, I'm willing to help a shipping company out, but can't help with the cost (though like I said, my price is slightly negotiable). If you want me to pick you up from the airport, no problem.

Odometer reads 21,470 miles, but it's not the original odometer (not that it really matters, being the engine has been built, the transmission has been replaced, and it's been repainted). Records indicate it was replaced in 2003. Vehicle history report and cluster both show it's only racked up 10,000 or so miles since 2003 when the cluster was replaced (which is consistent with what the previous owner told me). Receipts show that the built engine was assembled in 2006, the car was repainted in 2007, and the new transmission was put in in 2012, meaning all have low mileage on them. If I remember correctly, the body has about 150,000 miles on it.

Despite the aforementioned drivetrain and paint, the car is not perfect... Imperfections include the following:
-The door panels have the typical "C4 floppy door panel problem," and the interior is your typical "1993 GM product" interior, meaning a little bit of sticky plastic here (due to the factory GM "Dulso" finish) and a few worn out clips there.
-Due to the cam (I think), sometimes if the air conditioner is on, it will stall in reverse or neutral, due to the lower idle speed of those gears (idle could be adjusted I'm sure, but I just turn the air off when I put it in reverse).
-The power steering pulley wobbles a bit (the whole assembly is pretty cheap, but the pump is fine, and just the bearing is even cheaper).
-The radio doesn't work, (typical of the Bose systems on these C4s, sadly). I've more or less narrowed it down to being a certain relay (which I haven't bought because it's $30 and I don't use the radio anyway) or all 4 amplifiers being bad.
-The paint is decent -- it's been repainted once (in the original color, black) and it was an okay job, but it's picked up a few scratches here and there since then.

But, it has nicer paint than most 1993s -- no clearcoat peeling or oxidation (I keep it garaged), the seats are in great shape (8.5/10; sorry about the driver's headrest cushion not being snapped in in the photo -- it's snapped in now), and the dash is perfect (obnoxious tachometer is velcroed on and can be removed; stock one works fine). The carpet is gray (I know it looks tan in the photos); the hatch has a WeatherTech cargo liner mat ($94).

Now, on to the good stuff...

-Forged rotating assembly consisting of ($1372 total, package/part number 383SR)):

-Be Cool aluminum radiator made to handle 700 HP ($640, part number BCI 62046)
- 160 degree Hypertech thermostat ($18, part number HYP 1008)

-$3080 package from TCI, part number TCI 373000P2 -- will list most individual components below:
---TCI Streetfighter 700R4 built to handle 725 HP ($2343, part number TCI 373000)
---TCI Streetfighter 10" lockup torque converter with 3000-3500 stall ($525, part number TCI 243105)
---TCI auxiliary transmission cooler ($50, part number TCI 820500)

-Hooker ceramic coated shorty headers ($700, part number 32774)
-Stock catalytic converters/downpipes (you don't need emissions testing on it in Georgia as it's 25 years old, but with the catalytic converters, it should still pass emissions if necessary in another state)
-H-pipe after the catalytic converters
-Chambered exhaust pipes -- they're the only "mufflers," so between them and the cam, it has an old-school hot rod sound ($522, part number 37608A)

-3.73 gear-ratio Dana 36 with cover bolt kit and speedometer gear ($1050, from Ikerd's in Indiana)

-Authentic 17" C5 Z06 alloy wheels

-Rear tires: Sumitomo P315/35ZR17 HTR 35Z (~$168 each)
-Both pairs of tires have about 70 to 75% tread life remaining and have no dry rot or abnormal wear patterns.

I'll include some random odds and ends I have for it as well -- red neoprene Corvette seat covers, an upgraded headlight harness (uses the original switch and plug to flip a relay, and draws power straight from the battery, so you get more power -- a nice upgrade even with factory sealed beam lights, but a must if you plan to go to H4 bulbs and separate housings), some extra fluids, extra gaskets, etc.
Car also comes with the original targa-top ratchet and a spare set of keys.
