Evaluation: Bloomington Gold Benchmark, 3-time Bloomington Gold Special Collection, multiple NCRS Top Flight, Gold Spinner, Triple Crown. Represented as the original paint but crazing everywhere. Sound upholstery and chrome. Nice car but needs to be carefully stored before the crazing original paint starts lifting.
Bottom Line: An outstanding example of a carefully, almost religiously, preserved Corvette relic made even more unusual by it being a high output L79 small block. These small block cars are often overlooked in the pursuit of Big Block Corvettes, and this car’s survival in largely untouched condition is verified by its multiple awards and comprehensive documentation. It brought a nice premium for preservation that can’t be realistically challenged. Finding another one like it will be a long time coming.
