I have listed below information on the car and a link for some pictures. Today I will get the car back from the shop after getting a caliper replaced and a new hose near the passenger side of the gas tank. The other hose had rotted out.
My mechanic is saying that the non-factory rims on the back should be replaced since they are slightly bent.
Feel free to email me @ [email protected]
I am in the Bowie, MD area. I normally keep the car garaged in an off site storage location. However it will be at my home from this point on.
Here is the information.
79 vette for sale (selling as is):
$4,500 (paid $12,000 for the car back in 2009; not trying to
make a profit.)
350 small block
White outside; black interior
82 front and rear fascia
Flowmaster exhaust system (summer of 2011)
Reason for selling:
Lost desire to work on the car
More at home with my mid size cars
Would rather put the money into a classic truck
What I have done
Changed engine oil
Changed differential oil
Replaced radiator (aluminum)
Replaced fan shroud
Replaced spark plugs and wires (currently yellow JEG wires 8.5 mm)
Replaced fuel pump; fuel filter within carb; associated
fuel filter hoses; and fuel line to carb
Replaced heater hoses
Replaced the low frequency horn
Replaced the battery
Added hose shut off valve
Added two cheap speakers in the back
Replaced the moulding in the area of the rear portion of
Replaced the protective mesh under the hood
What is wrong with the car:
Prior owner-installed radio has no bass control;
therefore there is a tinny sound
High beam indicator on the instrument panel is on when low
beam lights are on
High beam indicator on the instrument panel is off when the
high beam lights are on
Driver side kick panel needs to be replaced
Steering wheel horn has never worked (actual horns were
tested with a jumper wire and are working; have not
replaced the horn relay)
The rear right wheel wobbled. The mechanic has fixed that by replacing the caliper. It was full of debris. He still believes that both rear non-standard wheels are slightly bent and should be replaced.
Car was originally equipped with AC; I purchased the car
with the compressor bracket; but no compressor
Crack in windshield (my fault for trying to close the hood
with a tape measure between it and the glass)
Left turn signal works and blinks; right turn signal works; but does not blink. The light just illuminates and stays constant.
Drivers side portion of the hood does not sit down flush.
Some times that same side will pop up from the hinge and
open when driving.
Noticed on 8/11/2013 that there is a slight oil leak. Have not
determined the cause yet.
