1986 Chevrolet Corvette Base Hatchback 2-Door Description

I'm selling my 1986 C4 Corvette. I bought it in good condition in 2011 and have been slowly customizing it and restoring it since then. It was my daily driver until 2015 when I got a new car so this became my weekend car - busy finishing my PhD now and not in a place to continue restoring a toy like this. The body has approximately 170k miles but did a full engine swap and full transmission and rear end rebuild as well as a ton of upgrades listed below. The engine is a race setup with carburetor and was dyno tuned at CPR Performance in West Columbia, SC. It has never been wrecked and has been a southern car its whole life - never seen any salt on the roads. This car is fast and sounds mean. Below is a list of its features:

I have receipts for everything professionally done as well as full documentation for everything else you can think of. As you can see it has a ton done to it (I'm sure that I have left some things out) and all the parts and labor are well over $15k, but it is not in perfect condition or a show car. Included are all the spare parts and fluids that I have accrued over time with it as well including the GM Factory Service Manual /Shop Manual. Please contact me before bidding so we can discuss all the ins and out of the car and discuss all details so there are no surprises. Please let me know if you would like a video to hear it running.
If you have less than 5 feedback ratings then you must contact me prior to bidding or I reserve the right to cancel your bid. This car is also listed locally so I reserve the right to end the listing if it sells locally. Please let me know if you have any questions. Thank you and have a great day.
