Thinking of selling my 2007 corvette with a LME 440 LS7. Wanting to build a garage, so I would rather sell the car and use the cash from the car, instead of having to get a loan. Interior is in perfect shape. Exterior is in good shape for a 6 year old car. The only problem I have with the car, is every now and then it makes a noise when taking off from a dead stop. A mechanic told me to bleed the clutch to see if that would fix it, just haven't had time to try it. Doesn't do it all the time, just every now and then. Pretty sure the sound is coming from the slave cylinder, but not 100% sure. Only does it from a dead stop, once moving, never makes a noise. Also, I have a complete Z06 front end and a set of 360 forged wheels I can add in for more money. Asking 35k or best offer. Car is located in Birmingham, AL. It has 49k miles on the body.
Has the OEM widebody rear quarters with the brake ducts.
All lights have been tinted.
5% window tint
Z06 Brakes all the way around, powder coated dark silver
Sits on dark gray Z06 Wheels
Alcantara suede A-pillars
Alcantara suede and leather console
08+ radio bezel
Derlin shift ****
Nice car for a nice price. As for the sound it makes on take off, it's probably just clutch chatter. Try doing a 2nd gear 5k rpm clutch dump to burn off any glaze. I hear about it a lot with performance clutches, though those are usually single disc, not twin.
Yea, I've had it about 2 or 3 months. I've got too many projects and toys right now. I need a garage/space more than I need this car right now. If I sell this car, I can build a garage with cash, instead of having to get a loan.
Compression is 11.8:1. Can't remember tire sizes off the top of my head. I know the backs are 345, but not sure about the front. I don't have a dyno sheet, but I can take it to my local dyno and get some numbers. LME built the motor.
To the new owner, I do not have his contact info and he does not post on the CF. the car has always had the 360 wheels on it from the get go and you can look up history from the owner before this owner on ls1tech.com
The car was sold for 35k with the 360s. On ls1tech.
Yea... ditto on the noise being a little clutch chatter. My red GTO does it too with an aftermarket clutch. Usually in the morning when the car is cold. Sounds like I have bad brakes when I first engage the clutch. Figured it's glazed a little since I'm perhaps too easy on it.
Just now saw this. I took the car to Speed Inc to get a new clutch. After it was apart they found that the torque tube input shaft had some damage on it. I had them replace the clutch with it anyway just to be safe. I am very happy with the purchase still. Great seller!
