EXTERIOR
This glorious and iconic Corvette is the top specification 4LT model finished in gleaming factory optional Crystal Red Metallic Tintcoat, (Code 89). A beautifully preserved and pampered example having covered just 20,550 miles from new, the bodywork is arrow straight and the paintwork is simply stunning with just one tiny touched in scratch to an otherwise flawless finish. All trim sections and badges are as new and the optional second roof panel allows you to choose between colour coded or transparent with the unused piece neatly stored in the luggage area. The underside and wheel apertures are exceptionally clean and clearly representative of dry usage, garage storage and meticulous enthusiast ownership. This very low mileage example boasts its cherished existence without question and now represents a highly desirable American Muscle Car.

INTERIOR
A showroom fresh and very well specified interior is bristling with all the appurtenances of modern motoring such as head up display, keyless entry and start and navigation to name just a few. The Custom Leather-Wrapped Interior Package is standard only on the 4LT model and features beautiful and supremely comfortable two-tone Ebony and Cashmere upholstery as well as extensive leather wrapping to the dashboard and interior trim with contrast stitching. The iconic Crossed Flags are embroidered head restraints as part of the package. Absolutely all equipment operates seamlessly including the ice-cold air conditioning, heated electric seats and Navigation which comes complete with the US and European map discs. Tailored carpets mats have been fitted from new and the super low mileage has seen this interior protected impeccably.

ENGINE & TRANSMISSION
With exception of the Z06, the 6.2 litre LS3 V8 all-aluminium unit is the most powerful Corvette engine ever and puts out ‘Big Block’ levels of power at 430hp and 574Nm of torque in standard form. This Corvette is a true supercar, capable of 190mph and 0-60mph in around 4.3 seconds! An additional 6hp is gained with the factory optional dual-mode performance exhaust which reduces restriction and provides a more aggressive exhaust note through the use of butterfly valves on the two inner tailpipes. The engine bay itself is a spotless work of art and proudly displays the Corvette LS3 lettering on each rocker cover. The desirable short throw six-speed manual transmission features triple and double cone synchronisers and Computer Aided Gear Selection (CAGS), a device factory designed to only allow direct shift from 1st to 4th gear when certain conditions are met. This was to avoid the US gas guzzler tax by suppressing rapid acceleration, however a widely accepted CAGS bypass has been supplied by specialist Eurovettes and fitted.

WHEELS, TYRES & BRAKES
Fitted as a factory upgrade, Competition Grey aluminium five split-spoke wheels are pristine with no kerb damage whatsoever and immaculate crossed flags centre caps. Matching Falken Azenis FK510 tyres of size 245/40 ZR18 front and 285/35 ZR19 rear were fitted brand new in 2019 and selected by the previous owner after extensive research and reviews. The factory optional Magnetic Selective Ride Control offers Tour and Sport ride modes controlled via a centre console rotary switch and part of this option is larger crossed-drilled brake discs which along with the enormous Corvette branded calipers are easily seen through the attractive alloy spoke apertures.

HISTORY FILE
A Certificate of Origin issued by the General Motors Corporation and Subsidiaries confirms this Corvette C6 4LT was registered new on the 25th February 2008 by main dealer, Walters Elkland Chevrolet, inc. of Pennsylvania, and was exported to the UK just three months later via Canada, with full importation and UK registration on the 27th May 2008. The car has enjoyed almost inconceivable fastidious ownership throughout and has covered a verified 20,550 miles from new, a significant portion of which was during tours of Italy with the first UK owner. The history file is quite remarkable with the full book pack containing absolutely all manuals, spare keys and point of sale literature as well as the service record containing 14 entries, the most recent in April 2021 with just 14 miles covered since. A huge folder contains many Corvette specialist invoices and there is a meticulously detailed maintenance log recording every element of the vehicle maintenance even down to exact specification and quantities of all fluids and filters.

Look no further for a pampered, cherished, impeccably maintained and top specification Chevrolet Corvette C6 4LT.

The cushioned black bench seat is in excellent condition and provides a perfect seating position to offer brilliant visibility through the one-piece wrap-around windshield. The instruments are grouped in a singular triangular cluster all functioning and illuminated in a beautiful light green.

HISTORY FILE
The Chevrolet Task Force was Chevrolet’s successor to the Advance Design trucks. The Task Force Series ran from 1955 through to 1959 and this 1957 3100 Stepside is an American icon in every sense. A ridiculously thick file of history accompanies this amazing machine even prior to its UK entry in 2012 whereby it has been enjoyed by two former keepers. Copious hand written notes detailing every aspect prove the attention to detail lavished on this Chevrolet light-duty truck. There are invoices dating back to the mid-seventies where it resided in California and it is clearly evident this Chevy hauler has been loved through all the decades. Forming part of a diverse collection consisting of everything from a 1960 Morris Mini to this American V8 Muscle Truck and only selling to downsize a fleet of 25 plus classics, this really is an amazing opportunity.

Chevrolet El Camino Super Sport

SORRY NOW SOLD – SIMILAR WANTED

A muscular Chevrolet El Camino Super Sport 5.0L V8 in head-turning condition.

EQUIPMENT

EXTERIOR
This tough Chevy hauler puts the style and drivability of a full size American car into a rugged pickup truck.  Finished in two-tone Bright Silver Metallic, (Code 17), over Gloss Black this iconic machine draws attention wherever it is driven.  Being the revised fifth generation of the El Camino it benefits from the crosshatch grille flanked by quad rectangular headlights and the proud standup hood ornament.  The Super Sport or SS model also wears a front air dam and sport door mirrors to add to the muscular appearance.  Markings to the body can be seen in terms of chips, paint imperfections and slight dulling to the chrome.  The large cargo area is very clean with no damage.  A presentable rarely seen piece of Americana.

INTERIOR
Immensely comfortable the contrasting Blue Velour interior, (Code CDD2), presents very well.  The supportive individual bucket seating is undamaged and headlining, door cards and colour-keyed nylon cut pile carpeting is clean.  Fake wood trim adorns the spacious cabin and all gauges work along with the GM-Delco FM/AM stereo.  The power windows operate slowly and the internal power locks also work but the drivers remote mirror requires manual adjustment.  The Super Sport nameplate on the instrument panel above the lockable glovebox remains attached. Unlike most commercial vehicles the El Camino offers car-like comfort and refinement in a stylish package.

ENGINE & TRANSMISSION
The preferred factory engine option LG4 is fitted to this vehicle, the legendary (305) 5.0 litre V8.  It thunders into life immediately and sounds truly superb thanks to a custom exhaust system.  Standard BHP is quoted at 150 and works smoothly with the 3-speed automatic transmission.

WHEELS, TYRES & BRAKES
A set of stunning and expensive Rocket Booster Chrome wheels are fitted with low profile 255/35 ZR20 rear and 225/40 ZR18 front tyres all, with ample tread. The Super Sport Grey and Silver Rally wheels are also included with the car.  Hydraulic self-adjusting power assisted disc brakes to the front a drums to the rear provide ample stopping power.

HISTORY FILE
This 1984 Chevrolet El Camino is the desirable 5.0 V8 Super Sport model and is the final fifth generation spanning a production run from 1959 until 1987.  Entering the UK in 1992 and entrusted with American car collectors ever since, it represents a rare opportunity for the next American car loving fanatic.  Currently owned by Robert McMillan who runs a successful engineering firm this fascination in everything Americana has led to a collection of eight vehicles with this being the newest of the fleet.  Only selling due to the discovery of a ’59 El Comino the difficult decision was made to sell his youngest example.  Many invoices, old MOT certificates along with the original owners manual are included.  Not to be missed and a dare to be different modern classic.

EXTERIOR
This commanding and imposing classic American ‘Chevy’ Long Box is the ultimate symbol of American culture, and has been for decades with Chevrolet a forerunner in the phenomenon.  This incredible example is finished in factory original Summit White (code U8624).  The factory coachwork boasts a brilliant pure shine and uniform finish, commensurate with the amazingly low miles of just 9,993.  This exceptional example will uphold the closest scrutiny with just a tiny ding to the chrome nearside front arch trim and light scratches to the tailgate top worthy of mention.  All remaining trim and bright chrome pieces are pristine.  A spotlessly clean engine bay features factory stickers, and the wheel tubs and underside reflect the very minimal use this truck has had.  This magnificent classic Chevrolet is as attention grabbing as it is huge, and offers a tremendous sense of occasion on every journey!

INTERIOR
A truly exceptional interior offering as close to new condition as can be expected!  The incredible low mileage is clearly evident upon climbing into the cabin space.  The Custom Cloth upholstery in Neutral is extraordinarily clean and free from wear with just one tiny faint marking to the passenger backrest negating the term perfect being used.  Tailored GM rubber floor mats have protected the carpets from new helping them to remain pristine, full and free from wear.  The colour matched fascia with incorporated functions and switches are simply perfect with all operating seamlessly, including the ice cold air conditioning as part of the optional Convenience Package.  The term ‘time warp’ often used loosely is absolutely justified in this instance.  Beautifully preserved and very impressive.

ENGINE & TRANSMISSION
Fitted with GM’s proven Vortec 5,000cc V8 unit with Sequential Fuel Injection (SFI), a power output of 230HP at 4,600rpm and 285ib.ft of torque at 2,800 rpm is achieved.  The high commanding driving position is complimented by the deep V8 rumble which is both exciting yet unobtrusive.  A set of performance exhaust downpipes offer the next owner the option to further exploit and enhance the delightful V8 roar should they wish!  The three speed automatic transmission with column shift and manual control operates perfectly and offers relaxed cruising capabilities.

WHEELS, TYRES & BRAKES
Optional upgrade chrome alloys wheels from renowned makers Mickey Thompson instantly raise the imposing nature of this Chevrolet as well as raising the ride height!  In absolutely pristine order with no damage, these expensive additions instantly enhance the muscular appeal and the chunky all-terrain Hankook Dynapro LT285/70 R17 tyres have masses of tread remaining.  Power assisted with anti-lock assistance, the front disc and rear drum braking configuration brings this monstrous machine to a steady and assured halt.

HISTORY FILE
Registered new on 1st January 1997, this Californian Chevrolet Silverado C/K2500 Fleetside Long Box has enjoyed the warm dry climes of the sunshine state its entire life until being imported to the UK by a previous owner.  Himself a UK National returning home after a work placement simply couldn’t bear to leave the vehicle behind after sourcing it from the only Californian owner, so it came back with him!  With all import duties and levies paid, and now UK registered with a valid MOT certificate, this example is ready for enjoyment and showing off!  Previously sold by KGF Classic Cars in June 2015, our customer has enjoyed this imposing truck but a house move and loss of storage has enabled us to acquire the vehicle back.

The history file consists of import and UK registration paperwork as well as a collection of US and UK invoices and maintenance receipts.  Offering immense practicality and for anyone keen on Americana appreciation, this dare to be different classic truck is surprising easy to drive and will guarantee you a smile on your face.
