Attention GearHeadz! This beautiful 1970 Corvette has been meticulously maintained by Motor Trend and nationally syndicated master mechanic Sam Mahdavi of Sam’s Garage! Originally assembled on July 23, 1970, this 1970 Corvette coupe is a beautiful survivor car with only 10,668 coupes made in 1970. Code correct Monza Red exterior, with Black Interior. This car comes with air conditioning, (6,859 made), power steering, power brakes, and 350 engine, with 4-Speed Close Ratio Manual Transmission (4,383 made).
Both the paint and the interior are in very good condition with original floor mats, GM seatbelts, original AM/FM stereo radio (2,462 made). All of the gages work as they should including the clock. This car is in excellent condition, and a pleasure to drive. It is a real crowd pleaser on the road, and around car shows. The car took home the runner up award in the C3 Class at an all Corvette Show. I have a clean GA title, and a clean InstaVin report on the car reporting NO salvage or wreck titles. The car has always been garaged, and pampered. Given its sound mechanical condition, you can drive it now, and enjoy spring and summer trips!!
