@deffsam – Could you share some full under carriage pictures. Being a car from MN, I am curious of rust as a very important part of my decision. ...

In 1988 a complete, body off restore, down to the frame was completed. The frame was epoxy primed, stainless steel brake lines, calipers, and stainless-steel exhaust system were installed. My corvette has been on display at the World of Wheels numerus times after the restore. It has been in parades and local car shows. It has not left the garage if there is any chance of rain. The AutoHunter photographer took six undercarriage photos. The photos he provided are much better than I’d provide with my cell phone.

@JuzaBill1964 – Three cell phone videos have been submitted to AutoHunter Staff to be posted. I do not want to scare off potential buyers, so I do not plan on releasing the Appraisal. I will provide the complete appraisal to the buyer so they can purchase appropriate insurance. ...

I have finally received the YouTube videos AutoHunter prepared. Sorry it has taken so long for them to place on line: https://youtube.com/shorts/v4aMyltsTQg?feature=share Engine running exhaust https://youtube.com/shorts/r8Wc-vzmJOU?feature=share Engine running hood open https://www.youtube.com/shorts/PiBtKy-dv8E Wipers running

@EricYocius – Thank you! Do you have a copy of the report you can share. No problem on the quality of the video, I'm more interested in listening. That will tell me a lot. Make it a great day, ...
