from a craigslist posting, primer and a body kit, 84 with misfire engine (not a selling point!) and no transmission and he claims it runs great! I want whatever this guy is on:

1984 corvette

-runs great

The car needs a transmission

-fuel injection (crossfire injection)

-motor has been rebuilt

-the car has a Greenwood Bodykit

-flawless interior/

-17 inch rims

-new dual exhaust

-digital dash

-car gets 19 miles per gallon (digital dash)

-removable top

-good inspection sticker

-clean wv title

-needs paint job/ under primer

-perfect interior

-carpet has NEVER been stepped on

-has a small crack in windsheild


NO TRADEs/ CASH ONLY Very firm on price

Very firm on price

(There is no transmission in the car)

last chance

...maybe thats the mpg of the tow vec? Also like how the missing trans is not identified, manual or auto.

Maybe if he hadn't been trying to avoid stepping on the carpet he wouldn't have cracked the windshield.

To be fair it doesn't say no transmission, it says needs transmission

i don't see rice there. the greenwood kit is the nicest gfx you can get for a vette - not sure why you need to mess with perfection though.

it's more rice because the car is still in primer.. but I agree, I have seen some greenwood kits, they are not bad looking
