Agree, I would hope not. Are there any leaks? Can you attach a video of a start up and engine running? Thank you

@jmacauto – I have submitted pictures of the suspension and engine to Auto Hunter. But let me ask you one simple question… do you think someone would spend five years restoring this vehicle and then be driving it in any kind of foul weather such as snow or salt on the roads? I’m not trying to be sarcastic, but I can assure you this was not driven in any kind of foul weather. ...

HPDBOB I resent the pictures of the undercarriage of th Corvette. I asked again if they would be added to the picture carousel. I’m hoping they will add them asap. If not let me know and I will send them to you in a private message. Thanks!

Good morning, Rocket. I just resent all the photos of the undercarriage to my rep and asked him to please put them up into the picture carousel. If they don’t make it up by this afternoon, I can send them to you directly if you want to provide me with a phone number or email address.

@jmacauto – Thank you very much for tge detailed explanation. I very much appreciate it and I never claimed to be a “know it all” that’s why I ask a lot of questions myself. I surely will try my best to find out if any of that was done during the restoration. I never wil describe a vehicle other than what I know to be fact. Over the next few days due to the holiday in the middle of this week I will find out if there’s any more details and I will pass whatever information along to you. Thanks again and enjoy the 4th of July holiday. ...

No problem. Have a great 4 th of July.

@jmacauto – OK, I'm trying to get all the answers for you but keep in mind that the present owner of the Corvette did NOT do the restoration. He purchased the car for nostalgic reasons and has enjoyed the car for the last five years as part of his private collection. The restoration was done a while back, maybe 15-20 years ago as it was an award winner back in 2009 thru 2016. The car is an original #'s matching 1962 Corvette convertible. It had a meticulous restoration done by a father and son and it broke the father's heart to sell it. The father originally wanted $200,000 for the car but eventually sold it to a good friend of mine who is a collector and that is where it has been for the past five or so years. My friend has the title and a copy of the previous title and will attempt to contact the previous owner to get answers to some of your questions. The engine was rebuilt at the time of the restoration. I have no clue to the question of original shims (with #s circles). Could you elaborate please. You can also do some due diligence on the car as to the number of owners. I don't want to give any incorrect information to anybody. The car is on display in my showroom and can be viewed at any time with proper notice. I believe you will be impressed with the high quality of this pristine automobile. ...

My apologies for my slow reply. I greatly appreciate the feedback. The shims question is relevant to the proper restoration process. When the cars went down the assembly line several stations had a responsibility to place a dab of yellow paint on the brake line connections, trany install blue and the # of shims used for each corner body mount was put in a circle with white chalk. A simpler question would have been is the car been NCRS certified. Corvettes have a broad spectrum of value depending on many factors. It’s difficult to correctly assess the value without seeing the car in person. I love Corvettes and hope to get another one soon. Again thank you for your time and feedback. I’ll be watching this girl closely.
