Recently painted non-original colors, 390 with aluminum 4bbl manifold on propane since rebuild eleven years ago, C6 with shift kit, redone interior, still serviceable.  The glass and chrome are in reasonable shape, some pits and dings, but still presentable.  This car has been used as a daily driver for 10 years and has power steering and power disc brakes.  It has been maintained on a regular basis and has proven to be very reliable.

This is not an original show car, but is a very presentable driver.  It presently has a newer stereo, but comes with original radio, gas tank and roof rack.  Can be put back to gasoline power with little difficulty.
