This car is a super investment for the future– rare, unique and as an Australian made V8 coupe it is becoming extremely sought after and hard to find.
It was a semi-commercially produced car but only 97 made, and only 25 Mark I.
The design was based on the iconic C3 corvette shape in the 70’s and was built on a Holden HJ panelvan chassis.
It had the advantage of rear seats and a boot, making it alot more useable than the C3.
The suspension was also superior to the C3 and gave the perentti better handling and cornering. The C3 only had a single assembly leaf spring from left to right.
An awesome newly rebuilt 5.7lt 350 Chev with Roller Rockers and Mild cam.
4 barrel 650 holley carby, cylinder head work done & alloy intake manifold. This extra power with the lightweight frame makes it an awesome drive.
Complete carburettor overhaul. Less than 200km since the engine and carby rebuild.
HAD FULL SERVICE associated with this installation (new spark plugs, thermostat, filters and new transmission service kit and water pump. Wheel alignment and front end service.)
Power steering works great
Front Wheel Disc Brakes
Automatic trans changes smooth &easy
Quiet to cruise in with very few rattles for this age car.
Rear pump up air shocks
Full twin exhaust system from front to back. Large twin chrome tips. Does have hole in exhaust.
TYRES very good to excellent cond.
Globe wheels made by “Wheels Australia”
BODY in fantastic condition.
The fibreglass is smooth and straight with no dents or damages
NO RUST- the chassis rails, doors and other metal parts are in excellent condition.
Very straight and clean panels- No dints or dents or significant damages.
Extended guards front and rear to accommodate larger wheels.
Front spoiler, silver side trim, chrome luggage rack and the extended guards really make this car stand out.
Indicators, parking lights, brake lights all working in great condition.
All doors and locks work.
PAINT looks good enough to still turn heads like no other!
However it is not a show car and there are areas of crazing of varying degrees and some small chips, touch-ups etc. It still looks amazing from a couple metres away and is still a stunning car to have as a daily driver or cruiser to enjoy and drive a real headturner.
INTERIOR is overall in excellent condition
Seats two toned color coordinated red and black SAAS seats to give extra headroom, in excellent condition.
Hoodlining, door cards, T tops and dashpad in fantastic condition.
Carpet mostly in great condition and where it has been damaged it has been replaced neatly Centre console looks great and although has small damages in top is overall great cond.
Room behind front seats for storage or for 2 small rear seats.
JVC CD player and speakers work great. Kenwood speakers connected and new set pioneer speakers not yet connected.
Color coded Calibra sports steering wheel
Novelty horn of 3 sounds plus microphone jack for your own input
Fan works, heater works.
Rear boot a big bonus as C3 corvettes have no boot or rear seats. In great condition.
All gauges work- Tacho, fuel, volts and temp except oil pressure and clock. Regular horn & wiper washers only other items that don't work.
T Tops and covers for T Tops
Spare wheel, tyre in vgc, jack & wheelbrace.
Chrome Luggage rack looks stunning and made to carry the TTops.
NOTHING MUCH TO DO FOR REGO that I am aware of, hole in exhaust and wiper washers, heater.
