Anniversary Model Two Tone Silver/ Gray with Red Interior

VIN: 128748S437485

Mileage: 89,253 (original)

License: 78VETTE

The vehicle was purchased from the original owner in 2011. The mileage at that time.was 88,796

The engine manifold was changed out by the original owner to a high-rise manifold. However, I do have the original manifold.

The i;-ear leaf spring was changed out to a composite one. I do have the original leaf spring.

The seats were changed in order to remove the original seats for recovering. This process was not completed. I do have the original seats.

I also removed the louvered rear window covering in order to clean the rear window. I do have the louvered rear window covering.

I also have the original red T-tops.

I had all the oils drained (engine, transmission, rear) and had the oil checked for metal shavings in 2011. There was none.

The vehicle has new breaks and a new exhaust system from the manifold back including catalytic converter. Done in 2011.

Routine tune up of the engine (including plugs and wires) was done in 2014.

Vehicle problems:

There is an electrical drain somewhere in the system that causes the battery to drain if not driven for 3 to 4 days. To combat this a battery cutout switch was added.

The air conditioner did not work. A new compressor was installed but the system has not been charged so I am not sure if this corrected the problem.

The front and rear seals leak if the vehicle sits for an extended period of time without being driven.

The dashboard clock does not work.

To my knowledge this is a complete list.
