Frame Off Restored in 2020, #’s Matching 327 L79, Muncie 4 Speed, Factory Colors
” quite a bit here. With a 4-year complete nut-and-bolt restoration recently completed in June of 2020, this Corvette absolutely glistens under our showroom lights. Knowing how desirable a matching-numbers mid-year Corvette roadster can be, this one received some of the best of everything during the complete restoration.
The standard black interior is anything but ordinary, with handsome leather bucket seats flanking a factory center console that looks quite appropriate inside the sporty cabin. The gauges were all restored with the rest of the car and show highly detailed markings and nicely polished lenses, all visible through the spokes of that slick woodgrained, 3-spoke steering wheel. Plush black carpets and restored original door panels and factory dash pad, and other soft parts were all attended to during the restoration and still look fantastic with almost no signs of use since the work was completed.
Finned aluminum valve covers remind onlookers that this is no ordinary small block and the ram’s horn exhaust manifolds have been coated for a long life and an authentic cast iron look. It’s backed by the original Muncie 4-speed manual and rear axle, all of which have been rebuilt and detailed for show along with the powder-coated frame and suspension. And that very suspension and power 4-wheel disc brake system is all fresh too, ready to be shown off at the next car show.
