Further Information

The Car Barn are pleased to offer this beautiful Chevrolet Corvette for sale.

It is finished in Venetian Red with a red leather interior. 

Imported from Arizona in 1989 and typically for a car of this type has had very little use.

This is a well optioned car in immaculate condition. An extensive and well documented restoration was carried out in the mid 1980’s by Reed Restoring in Arizona with careful attention to detail and authenticity. In 2014 the car was given a very thorough refresh at well known specialist Corvette kingdom. This included a brake overhaul, carburettor overhaul and new fuel lines, front suspension work, a new aluminised dual exhaust system, rear wheel bearings, transmission reseal and new clutch and a lot more besides. It also has had new rear bumpers, exhaust surrounds, new grille teeth and wheel spinners.  

The exterior off this car is lovely, there are a series of photographs in the history folder showing the car in bare fibreglass displaying a very nice original body with no replacement panels, this in itself is a rarity, and any original body stands head and shoulders above a car made of aftermarket panels. Wheels are the original welded rims correctly finished in body colour and well shod with recent reproduction Firestone wide whitewall tyres. Wheel trims are the originals in beautiful condition with new spinners. The hardtop is in very good condition and is the original and correct hardtop.

At the Car Barn we welcome any part exchanges and we provide a 6 month warranty on all our cars
