Bought the car in 2001 from a guy in financial trouble.  It is a bone stock '77 350.  It is a fully optioned car.  Everything now works in the car.  It has been garaged since I owned it.  I have done a lot of work on it the last 3 years it has been parked.  I have made no modifications to the car other than adding the front spoiler.  The wheels are 15 inch classic centerlines with swept wing spinners from Ecklers.  It runs perfectly.  It has just turned 125K miles and will still approach 125 mph!  I just recently completely gutted the interior and did a complete rewiring job.  Even the clock now works!  We added  a stereo upgrade and removed the factory alarm for  a much better security system.  The only thing left is replacing the door panels. 

The car has been in numerous Vette shows and has failed only one time not to place.  I am upgrading the suspension, tranny and engine.  It won't be a race car but it will have a bit more go than a stock '77.
