\r
In Poland, serviced at VRW - Veterans Restoration Workshop in Gdansk. repaired floor because it was damaged during transport most likely with forklift. It was professionally restored by same glass fiber material the floor is made of. The windshield was replaced because it had a small crack and minor repairs. The roof is wrapped in black. Overall, very good condition of the car. I have been on trips of 500-10000km with no problem with cruise control and very comfortable on highways.\r
\r
Interesting fact: by VIN it is one of the 50 first facelifted Corvettes produced ever, series number per VIN 000048, and maybe the first produced facelifted Corvette to be in the EU.\r
\r

Drives great, brakes, shifts smoothly. With L98 5.7L 250HP engine. No accidents, Engine and gearbox works very well. Starts with one key turn. All electronics are functional (opening headlights, mirrors, windows, opening the trunk, wipers, digital dashboard works). \r
\r
Rims in good condition (rims from C4 year 89-90), original tires size 4x 275/40/R17 purchased in Poland, front Nankang from 2019, rear Federal 2021, several thousand km on tires, like new. New Battery (Guarantee 5 years), Bilstein sports shock absorbers and suspension without any play or sounds, or rattles. New exhaust with a muffler was installed because it was very loud. \r
\r
Last service in Katowice, M2B Mechanika, in November 2023, oil and filter change, new oil pan gasket, and standard service.\r
\r
INTERIOR\r
Beautiful red leather original upholstery. The radio and cassette player, air conditioning, cruise control even, and electric seat work without any problems.\r
Weather sealing in very good condition.\r
\r
DEFECTS\r
There is still some cosmetic work to be done (polish may help, but both fenders and roof(wrapped black) will probably need to be repainted, as the paint is fading there. Front fender has paint cracks). The car looks very good for its age , you cant notice any visual defects from 2-3 meters. Possible repairs to be done:\r
\r
-Horn doesn´t work\r
-It does not show the fuel level in the car correctly.\r
-Trunk shock struts.\r
-very slight oil leak(drop), the oil temperature sensor needs to be replaced leak is from there as per the mechanic. (It was replaced with a new one, there was no leak anymore, but it did not show the correct oil temperature and the old sensor was installed back, seller can provide with the car the new sensor, but shows wrong temp).\r
