Does this Vette run and drive?  Yes!  This Vette runs very well, stops great, and turns with no major issues.  This car could more than likely be driven home.

Why is this car a Fixer-Upper?  Although this car runs and drives very well, its neglected cosmetics are holding it back from being part of our regular inventory. Paint, front spoilers, seat covers, carpet, and exhaust would go a very long way on this car.  Although it is missing many of its rare correct components, the engine in this car is nonetheless numbers matching.  Additionally, the louvers and aftermarket body parts would no doubt be frowned upon by an NCRS judge.
