The story behind my Black Corvette.

Well I found this black on black 1978 Corvette and the price was right and the eng & tranny are rebuilt. I got her delivered from Virginia and drove Her around a little finding out She is the perfect driver for me. I got Her in September and since then I have completely redone the interior short of replacing the dash board. I have replaced Shocks, bushings, rear mono spring and installed a rack & pinion steering unit. Over the holiday season from Thanks Giving and up until this week I have completely restored/modified the engine compartment adding a few chromed pieces and braded hose covering. I have removed anything bolted down and refinished its paint or stripped its paint and polished and clear coated it to look chromed. Things like the hood hinges, hood latch assembly, alte & bracket, vacuum diaphragm cover, headlight diaphragm containers, fan blades, the main pulley. And I even removed the hood and refinished its under side. I also repainted under the engine compartment fenders, firewall and the water pump and any bracket that could be removed. I just finished refinishing the wiper motor and last but not least, I had a set of 15” chromed Cragar SS wheels. I’m ready to show her off to the world.
She’s far from perfect, but so am I and I love Her.
