Default 2004 Silver Auto. 2-Owner Low Miles, Clean, Bolt-ons

Hello all. Looking to sell my 2004 Coupe Automatic. Asking price as is $17,000 OBO. Car is located in the western suburbs of Chicago.

Basics of the car: 2004 coupe, automatic. Silver (67U) exterior, black interior with sport seats. Painted top only, sport seats, standard suspension package (no selective ride), factory LS6 intake plenum, 2.73 gears, Heads Up Display. Clean title, no accidents. Currently 28,600 miles, but will go up as I drive it regularly. Paint is really well maintained. No tears or damage to the seats. Mechanically, the car is solid, no check engine lights. Starts every time and is a good driver. Headlights go up and down without concern, no gear issues. 2004 automatics did not have the column lock issue, common to older models. I'm throwing in the following with the sale of the car--factory exhaust, factory silver plate cover, the CD that came with the car, a cargo net (brand new in packaging), the cargo shade cover, Blackwing cleaner/oil, one extra TPMS, leftover roll of grey vinyl, set of rain day floor mats, and the wooden ramps I used. I do NOT have the factory fuel rail (beauty) covers. Never raced or abused, adult driven it's whole life, non-smoker car.

Ownership history: My Father-In-Law bought this car new June of 2004. It remained 100% stock during his ownership time. He never drove it in the rain and stored it for the winter, but still started it regularly and took the occasional drive when it was dry out. After having back surgery, he decided it was time to sell with only 16,000 miles on the clock. During his ownership, the fuel pumps were replaced by the dealership after a failure while coming home from a trip to Michigan (If I recall correctly this was 2010 or 2011). There have been no issues with them since. I have his maintenance records for review should you want them. In Sept 2012, I purchased the car from him and proceeded to slowly transform it to where it is today. Reason I’m selling is because I’m losing interest in maintaining three vehicles and the initial excitement of owning a Corvette (my dream car) is slowing wearing off. I was in the right place at the right time to buy this car, but lifestyle now is not as conducive to keeping it any longer. I hope to be back in another Corvette later in life.

Maintenance: When I bought the car, I had all fluids replaced with new (Brake, Trans, Oil, Coolant Flush). I do an oil change once a year with Mobil 1 5W-30 Full Synthetic and a WIX oil filter. Currently has a magnetic oil drain plug installed. Slotted brake rotors and ceramic low dust pads replaced in 2013 and still good. Tires are Michelin Pilot Super Sports with approx 8,000 miles on them. Summer 2017, I replaced both driver and passenger side AIR check valves and the Oil Pressure Sending Unit (behind the intake, preventative maintenance while I was back there). In March 2018, I had the trans fluid, filter and pan gasket changed again as I had a small leak coming from the pan. I still see some from time to time but added gasket sealer and have yet to see any more. In April/May 2018 the following was performed: Cleaned and re-oiled the Blackwing air filter, cleaned the MAF and TB, installed new AC Delco spark plugs and wires, new battery installed, new O2 sensors upstream (both sides). Just passed IL emissions in June 2018.

Damage Callouts:
1) Scratch/Scuff—The previous owner got a scratch on the passenger side rear fascia just below the spoiler. It measures about 3 inches long, is not deep, but has not polished out. It is faint and only noticed in the right light, but there nonetheless.
2) HUD—I’ve noticed cracking of the inner trim of the HUD unit. Must be from sun damage having spent the last few years parked outside my office while I am at work.
3) Weather-Strip—Slight tear in the top corners where the window glass meets the rear of the targa top. Common to have from removal and installation of the targa over the years. Had previously fixed with black sealant, and should be able to be done again.
4) Wiper cowl--There are a few broken plastic braces on the driver's side.
5) Door arm rests--I had Mid America Pads installed at one time and the tape holding them to the door left some indentations when I removed them.

Modifications: There are some mods shown in the pictures that have since been removed and sold seperately. These include: Halo LED Taillights, Adjure Reverse light panel, smoked 3rd brake light, blue door armrests, and blue marble shift **** and adapter.

Reduced price to $18,900. This is well within the current market value, but I am still open to offers.

Bump...here are snapshots of the Car Fax report. I've also got a Vin Check report that is far more comprehensive and will share with interested parties.
