Current High Bid: $4,100
The seller reports their C3 originally came from the factory as a black over tan L82/4-Speed example. In addition to a fresh ten-month-old repaint in black on an accident-free body, the previous owner elected to do a full interior color change to red. The car’s L82 350 cubic inch small block has been bored and rebuilt to displace 366 cubic inches. Here are receipts documenting the rebuild:
Other key new items include a fresh clutch, new brakes, and interior components. The seller notes that while the factory A/C is present, the previous owner removed the compressor belt, leaving the system inoperable. Additionally, while the car currently features a non-working aftermarket Jensen AM/FM/Cassette radio, the installer did not cut the dashboard during the installation.
