Picks:  Overall this Corvette looks almost new inside and out, the paint is excellent and the front bumper

cover and hood have little to no rock pecks, original windshield shows no signs of wear and there is no

warping or cracks in the dash or any issues with the interior leather, etc.  The body has no marks and

shows very well - the only pick is some light acid rain marks on the decklid that show under fluorescent

lighting.  CarFax and AutoCheck reports are clean and show good service history.  Rims are in excellent

condition and have no scuffs or mentionable issues  Very very nice condition and ready to enjoy!  If I had

to nitpick something it would be the plastic trim around the passenger seat is pulled out a small amount,

and the front plate area cover is missing.  An extremely nice car with great low mileage!  Nothing else to

reasonably fault - Photos show the condition so please request and review them.
