11k Mileage, Expertly Maintained, Adult owned, Car Show Detailed, Viper Specialists performed Professional Installation of 4L80E GM Auto Transmission, 4 New Pirelli P Zero Rosso’s in 2020, Approx. 200 Pics & Documents, Original Window Sticker, Experian Auto Check,

Current owner is an Auto Enthusiast and has been for decades. When not attending a local car show or cruise-in, he enjoys the efforts of pampering and detailing his current special machine. Typically, about every two years he prepares to purchase his next unique car to campaign and so the Viper is seeking a new home.

This Viper is the result of an extensive search in 2019 & 2020 for a preferred later 2nd generation GTS that was pampered and not hurt, not moth balled with dry seals, and didn’t have its wheels run off either. Just enough usage to keep things lubed.

Purchased from “Denny Dotson Auto” and Servicing by “Layland Motors” in the Spring of 2020. This included 4 New P Zeros, all new fluids, belt, plugs, refrigerant, battery, oil sample, air filters, 4 wheel align, etc. (see $2732.00 invoices in pictures)(Tires bought separately)

Professional Installation of Automatic / Manual Transmission, billet PS pulley and bracket, and frame changes & modification completed in 2021 by “Complete Performance Motorsports”. They are known as true “VIPER” specialist and fabricators & understand these cars inside and out. (see $26,067.00 invoices in pictures)(billet bought separately)

Please review all of the photos and documents at www.autoconnectioncars.com and feel free to contact us. We had just slipped it out of storage for pictures and is not all re-detailed for Spring. You might find a little dust somewhere.

Paint

Carefully inspecting the paint prior to purchase in 2020 and in the last 2 years, have never seen any indication of previous paint repairs on this car. No over-spray or mis match seen indicating repairs.
Paint finish is very smooth, shiny, and matches well (both yellow body and black stripe)

No flaws seen anywhere in the workmanship indicating repairs made

No changes in finish texture or showing orange peal indicating repairs

Inspected closely with florescent lighting and LED flashlight and could not find any cracked paint due to flexing or other.

Maybe a couple of pin head sized nicks somewhere but other then the lower front spoiler, we did not notice any. (see pics)

Black stripe shows a few very fine scratches seen only in florescent lighting. Had observed same a couple years ago and should mostly polish out. You can not feel them with your fingernail so they should buff out

Current owner is very competitive at car shows and had an air brush touch up specialist work on the clear covering and yellow paint in front and in back of 4 wheel wells. Previously a few small chips from typical big sticky tires throwing stones. There are multiple light scuffs underside of front bumper somehow caused by previous owner (see pics)

A little over a year ago, the car rolled backward at maybe 1-2 mph and into the side of a parked motorhome. The rear bumper had to be removed and professionally repainted (including stripe and GTS logo) because of a couple of small paint cracks from incident

Body

The body appears very straight and correct. We don’t see anything other then what you would have expected to see when brand new

The fits of all body panels, doors, hood, and hatch seem to be uniform (see pics)

Black Trim & Bright work

All trim, rubber components, and door handle panels seem to be properly secured

Observing the rubber and plastic surrounding the glass and wiper area, you will see how shiny they appear and can see the car has had little outside exposure

Weather stripping is very soft, and exterior light lens and the Viper emblems front and rear show like that of a couple year old car (see pics)

Glass

All 4 pieces of glass have the “SAFEGUARD” emblem

All Glass is about as close to new condition as you could expect

All are very clear, no discoloring, no delamination, no scratches, cracks, wiper marks, or bulls eyes.
Tinting on side windows and hatch were replaced in 2020. Previous tint was fine but the hatch tint was 2 piece and had an overlaping seam in the middle and the owner did not like how it appeared

There are 2-3 little pin head sized nicks on the passenger side that are near eye level but hardly noticed from inside. This glass shows little wear for 11k miles (see pics)

Interior

Note- The interior color is black, but the lighting conditions that day caused some of the photos to look more grey then black.

When we inspected the condition of the interior headliner, door panels, vinyls, leather, and carpets, it is obvious that it has seen little exposure and bright sunlight as the colors are deep. The vinyl and leather is very supple as well.

Dash guages are all very clear and switches show almost no wear

The seating shows little wear and the bolsters are in particularly good condition. The owners have all been careful with the interior

The interior all looks to be all original from the manufacturer with the exception of the Lokar shifter, back up light switch, extra mats, and aluminum dash applique

We don’t see any damage to the interior and only to note that the above storage net is stretched a bit and the driver bolster shows a little wear on the outside edge. We purposely do not put any conditioner on the vinyl as it might hide it’s condition

Trunk

Trunk shows as if hardly anything has been stored in there with no damage to any of the trim pieces or the carpeting

Coloring is again deep black without fade showing and again minimum exposure to sun

Spare tire included as well as TCI programming box. This box allows a tech to adjust shift points and torque converter engagement should an owner have different tastes in driving (economy, performance, higher shift points, etc)( much like different driving modes that newer cars offer today).

Tires & Wheels

4 new Pirelli P Zero Rosso installed spring of 2020

Fronts are 275/35/18 Rears are 335/30/18

All 4 tires have 9/32 tread wear remaining ( driven less then 1200 miles)

We see no damage to the outside of tires and wheels and I think fair to say they are all in identical condition

Black finish on wheels is shiny and without missing paint anywhere

Shiny outside edge has damage free finish and highly reflective(see pics)

Engine Bay Area

Engine bay in natural condition without being de-greased , pressure washed, or cleared to look improved.
Note the excellent condition of the RED paint on intake and valve covers, very little color change on exhaust manifold shields, and components in general

Current owner had insulation removed, artist design applied, and re-installed with all new clips by Complete Performance
Battery Tender connection is wired with the plug held with velcro just inside LF wheel well. This allows for easy tender hook up without opening hood. (see pics)

Chassis

The Chassis shows that it has had very little exposure to the elements or moisture. Slight surface rust on untreated components

You will see several of the original stickers and labels on chassis components showing little deterioration(shocks, frame) (see pics)

Frame changes included custom fabricating and welding in replacement left and right frame rails that will allow more room for a wider transmission. It does slightly narrow part of the passenger floor by about 1”. Carpet extend over and can hardly be seen. (see pics)

Engine and rear end seem mostly dry without oil seepage.
Transmission is covered by pan but we don’t see seepage from pan edges

We don’t see any damage to the underside from road debris etc.

Very slight scuffing on bottom of front spoiler and the panel slightly above

Conditions of Sale:

The Auto Connection representative has physically viewed the item being sold. The information comes from the seller and other research sources. Auto Connection is not responsible for any misrepresentation by the seller and/or errors in research results, including history statements of vehicle history, repairs, etc.

This vehicle is being sold AS IS and without a warranty, unless otherwise stated.
Information about serial numbers, engine numbers, and any other codes does not guarantee a vehicle’s authenticity. These codes and numbers are not guaranteed to be the same as the information on the vehicle ID or vin, trim tag, engine block, cylinder heads, transmission, differential, or other components within this vehicle. Auto Connection does not guarantee documentation, authenticity, repairs, mechanical work, titles, odometer discrepancies, matching numbers, stamped engines, casting numbers, or any other codes, tags, or numbers. The potential for reproduction paper documentation exists, as well as restamped engines and reproduced trim/data tags.

Auto Connection has described this vehicle to the best of their knowledge, but does not guarantee the accuracy of the description. Prospective buyers are encouraged to conduct their own due diligence, including a physical inspection of the vehicle in person, or through a qualified third party inspector/appraiser.

The vehicle will remain for sale until a buyer has placed a deposit on it. This deposit is nonrefundable with the exception of the vehicle being severely misrepresented by Auto Connection or the seller, or stipulated in the Bill of Sale.

It is possible that this vehicle will be sold at a higher price than the highest bid (before or after the auction ends), if the reserve is not met. After the sale (if reserve is met or not), Auto Connection must receive at least a 10% deposit (wire transfer or official bank or cashier’s check) within 3 days of the end of the auction (or the Bill of Sale is signed). The high bidder/buyer has 10 days from this time to send the balance in full or final payment and inspect the vehicle (or have a 3rd party professional inspection).

For the most part, the vehicle for sale is not “perfect”. It is unreasonable to assume that every single flaw in the paint, body, engine, etc. or any minor mechanical items (such as a light not working) be considered a reason to refuse the vehicle. Major rust/rot, undisclosed problems with the frame, etc. might constitute a legitimate reason for the buyer to refuse to follow through with the sale. In that situation, the seller and buyer will try to reach an agreeable solution.

The buyer acknowledges that he has had the opportunity to inspect the vehicle to verify it is as listed and represented. He accepts the vehicle with all advertised equipment, options and accessories in “AS IS” condition with any faults or defects. The buyer will bear all future costs of repairs or correcting any defects that exist or may occur in the future.

This car is being offered for sale by owner. The buyer and seller acknowledge that if the transaction is consummated and a dispute occurs relating to the sale, the laws of Ohio (the state that the car is located/sold) govern the rights and duties under the agreement.
