“Initially Purchased By Dale Jones In The Early 60’s And Kept With His Collection Until He Passed A Few Years Ago. Mr. Jones Considered This Corvette “The Centerpiece” And Looked After Her With Great Pride And Attention. Throughout The Years, He And His Wife Enjoyed Touring The Country Roads Near Their Home In The Pennsylvania Mountains. At Some Point, Car Shows Became An Interest And For Best Results, A Freshening Was Undertaken. Respecting What Essentially Was An Original, Unmolested Survivor, Mr. Jones Elected To Refinish The Original Colors With A Factory-Correct Lacquer Finish. Seat Covers And Carpeting Were Also Replaced At This Time. The Results Were Stunning (Awarded A Corvette Magazine Cover Photo) And She Remains “Jewel-Like” Today.

“She Retains Her Original, Numbers Matching Drivetrain Along With Many Other Original Components Including Her Correctly Numbered Brake Drums (see photos). Original Documents Include The Owner’s Manual, Manual Envelope, Warranty Booklet, Radio Instructions, Clock Instructions, Antique License Plate With Frame, Original Upholstery Tags, Factory Provided Hardtop Wrench And Mr. Jones Handwritten, Framed “Show Board” From The Early Days Of His Ownership. After Years Of Storage, Another Refresh Was Once Again In Order. Our Comprehensive Pre-sale Prep Includes Testing, Servicing, Restoring Or Replacing System Components As Needed. Installation Of New Weatherstrips Throughout. Exterior, Interior And Undercarriage Cosmetics Are Also Addressed At This Time And Brought To Show Car Levels.  We Road Test To Evaluate And Sort Out Any Needs Found. Our Goal Is To Provide The Next Owner With A Gorgeous Machine That’s Highly Detailed And Ready For Their Care-free Driving Pleasure.”
