CONDITION OF THIS PARTICULAR CAR

Although truly a limited production model, this car has been driven (albeit only 33,000 miles) and begs to be driven more. It is, however, in excellent cosmetic shape and shows very well. The brilliant orange metallic paint, stinger hood with ‽427” logo, dramatic, high quality wheels, and Z06 badging give it a stunning exterior appearance. The paint work is extremely high quality with virtually no apparent imperfections. There is no damage in the rocker panel areas as sometimes occurs from improper lifting / jacking. The under-nose air dam is in very good condition. The undercarriage and under-body is ‽California clean” and shows no damage, or modifications to suspension, or exhaust system. The car is truly exceptional both cosmetically, and mechanically.

The unique and attractive leather interior and special badging again set the car off from base Corvette's. The interior is similarly in fine shape. The engine bay is very clean and shows good care. The right rear wheel had a minor scrape to the very outer edge that has been touched up and is hardly noticeable. The dash, seats and all interior panels are excellent and reflect the excellent care by the owner and the low, low miles.

The Z06 carries a clear, California title and is registered through 11/17 (for California buyers).

The Corvette passed the required California inspection with no findings and runs drives and handles as you would expect from a late model high performance Z06. The Corvette is licensed, registered and being used exclusively on the street (never seen track use).

HISTORY OF THE CHEVROLET CORVETTE C6 Z06

The Chevrolet Corvette C6 is a sports car produced by the Chevrolet division of General Motors for the 2005-2013 model years. This sixth generation Corvette is the first with exposed headlamps since the 1962 model. Production variants include the Z06, ZR1, Grand Sport, and 427 Convertible.

The Z06 arrived as a 2006 model in the third quarter of 2005 and is the lightest of all Corvette models. The Z06 was equipped with the largest-displacement small-block ever produced, a new 7.0 L (427 cu in) engine code-named LS7. The LS7 produced 505 hp and was the most powerful naturally aspirated engine put into a production car from General Motors. In addition to the larger displacement engine, the Corvette Z06 has a dry sump oiling system, and connecting rods made out of titanium alloy. The frame of the Z06 is constructed from aluminum, saving 136 pounds over the standard steel frame. Other weight saving measures such as balsa wood/carbon fiber composite floors and a magnesium alloy engine cradle were used. The Z06's body differentiates itself from the standard Corvette with its larger front and rear fenders and an intake inlet scoop on the front bumper. The front fenders are constructed with carbon fiber and the rear fenders contain ducts to aid in cooling the rear brakes. The Z06 weighed 3,130 lb (1,420 kg), giving it a weight to power ratio of 6.2 pounds per horsepower, allowing excellent fuel economy rating (24 mpg on the highway & 15 mpg in the city).

The Z06 contains the following enhancements over the standard C6 Corvette:

• Hand-built LS7 7.0L 427CI V8 with dry-sump oiling system

• Aluminum chassis with fixed roof

• Larger/stiffer anti-sway bars

• Stiffer springs and shocks

• Larger rear spoiler and front splitter

• Transmission cooler

• Unique front fascia with intake inlet

• Wider carbon fiber front and fiberglass rear fenders

• Functional front and rear brake ducts for added brake system cooling

• Unique light weight forged aluminum 18-inch front and 19-inch rear wheels

• Wider 275/35ZR18 tires in the front and wider 325/30ZR19 tires in the rear
(Now 20" Rear / 19" Front)

• Larger 6-piston front and 4-piston rear calipers, including cross-drilled 355 mm (14.0 in) front rotors and 340 mm (13 in) rear rotors

PURCHASING A COLLECTOR VEHICLE - THINGS TO CONSIDER

As always, we recommend that you carefully review the seller's background for any collector car being sold over the Internet. It is important to ask yourself a number of questions including, but not limited to:

- How long have they been in business?

- How much experience do they have with collector cars?

- How many positive collector car vehicle sales have they completed (positive eBay feedback)?

- How detailed/complete is the description of the vehicle?

- Do the photos show details of the interior, exterior, top, chrome, etc. or are they simply "glamour shots" taken from a distance?

- Does the seller have a Surety Bond to protect the financial transaction?

- What about insurance, licensing by the state, and a local business license?

- Does the seller (if a business) have any DMV (Motor Vehicle) complaints and/or other history of legal action, grievances?

- Does the seller enjoy a favorable local and national/international reputation?

- Can the seller assist with funding sources, transport and out of state/country sales?

ABOUT CLASSIC CARS LTD.

- Classic Cars Ltd. has been in the same, small, California town for over 24 years. We operate a small "brick & mortar", indoor showroom, and specialize in the sale, consignment, and purchase of sports, high performance and specialty vehicles of all types. We have a particular interest in sports cars and unique vehicles.

- The majority of our vehicles come from local, private owners and collectors, and many were sold new in California. We appreciate that rust free cars, with excellent documentation and history are especially attractive to our buyers both locally, and around the country. As a result, we do not purchase our collectible cars from "distressed" sales, such as wholesale auctions, salvage sales, or lien sales. We do not sell vehicles with salvage titles, or those that have a history of significant accident damage or repair.

We have sold hundreds of unique, classic and collectible vehicles and regularly deal with buyers that have not had the experience of purchasing a large (both physically and monetarily) item on eBay, or through an Internet source. Our eBay feedback is 100% positive on all vehicle sales from customers around the globe and is a reflection of our commitment to accurate, complete, and thorough vehicle descriptions.

- We have been shipping vehicles for years and have established excellent contacts that are not only high quality but very price competitive. We do not use brokers, terminal shipping or other discount methods. Call us or email for a quote directly to your home or office. We are often able to obtain quality enclosed transportation (the kind of travel this car deserves) for the cost of open shipping.

- Please review our feedback on eBay (user name Never22Many) representing over 780 positive transactions to buyers all over the United States / World.

- We are fully insured, bonded, and licensed for collector car sales all over the United States/World.

- Classic Cars Ltd. carries a $50,000 Surety bond to cover financial transactions

- We frequently sell vehicles to out of State / out of country buyers, and will be glad to provide references for buyers in your area.

MISCELLANEOUS GENERAL INFORMATION

- As with virtually all collector/specialty vehicles, we find that parts and resources are readily available for this (and most every vehicle), thanks in large part to the Internet.

- In addition to the purchase price of the vehicle, California buyers will be subject
to sales tax, a documentation fee, DMV transfer fees and license/registration. Out-of-state buyers will be responsible for the purchase price of the vehicle and any local taxes/fees will be the purchaser's responsibility to pay in their respective state. IMPORTANT NOTE: If the vehicle is delivered or driven in California and driven on California roads, sales-tax, license/registration and transfer fees will be assessed per California law.

- While we encourage telephone calls to discuss this vehicle in greater detail we will not respond to inquiries asking "What is the reserve". Also, if you would prefer that we call you to answer any questions about the vehicle; shipping alternatives, etc. please e-mail us with your telephone number and will gladly get back in touch with you.

- We encourage inspections of this Z06 by serious, qualified individuals or professional inspectors. Please call at 925-846-1451 to arrange a convenient time.

- As with any collectible vehicle of this vintage we are unable to provide a warranty or guarantee of condition. However, we make every effort to accurately represent our vehicles, and highlight both positive items as well as areas that require attention. We ask that prospective buyers consider our eBay history/feedback, standing in the community, length of time in business, and other factors when purchasing a collectible vehicle from Classic Cars Ltd.

- Minor cosmetic issues/flaws may be present on every vehicle (regardless of cost) including small chips, nicks, scratches, etc. that can be seen on even the best restoration, or even a relatively new, used "pre-owned" vehicle. Also, ownership of a collectible / specialty vehicle is more enjoyable if the owner is familiar with the "realities" of these unique cars. Unlike more modern day vehicles, these cars require regular, ongoing care/maintenance and some mechanical knowledge, patience, and understanding can make the experience considerably more pleasant. That said, collector / "specialty" car owners will tell you (emphatically) that they love their cars and wouldn't trade them for anything!!

- The information contained in this description is believed to be accurate but, in some instances, has been provided by the car's owner / owners or outside sources. As a result, we are unable to guarantee the accuracy of the information. We encourage verification of "numbers" and significant data prior to the purchase of any collector vehicle that you are considering.
