We are excited to offer for sale this gorgeous example of a 3rd Generation Corvette. The car was restored approximately 10 years ago to fine detail.
This car is straight with all body panels having been carefully hung, and precisely adjusted. Being an early Third generation, this car has that nice bit of contrast with the chrome bumpers front and rear. The underside of the car is very clean with a rust-free frame. Also of note is that the Vacuum operated headlights work just the way they should, and the body colored T-Tops fit just right. The exterior color has been changed from its original shade of Daytona Yellow to a gorgeous Orange that looks to be very similar to the Monaco Orange originally offered in 1969. Whether originally Yellow or Orange, the flowing lines of the 3rd Generation Corvette are unmistakable.
The interior has been left trimmed the way it came from the factory - 'Saddle' vinyl (Code 420) Slide into the driver's seat and you'll see that all the little details were looked at during restoration. The result is a beautiful interior that still looks nearly new. Seats, door panels, gauges, dashboard, even the "pouches" on the passenger's side are all in superb condition. An AM/FM/Cassette player is mounted just below the factory auxiliary gauges. A Sunpro oil pressure gauge has been discreetly added for a peace of mind that the big 454 is producing adequate readings.
This car left the factory with a 427ci/390hp V8, which is indicated by the cowl 427 hood and plaque at the base of the shift knob. However, the original motor became problematic so a 1972 produced 454ci V8 was installed and mated to a 4 speed manual transmission, an upgrade in displacement and horsepower. This makes an awesome combination in a legendary sports car! A few performance parts have also been added to the big block in the form of a Holley Carburetor, MSD Ignition, and Accel plug wires. The exhaust system has been upgraded to an N11 performance exhaust that flows better than the factory system, and sounds great!
