1971 Chevrolet Corvette
One of the most collectable vehicles out there has to be the
classic Corvette. Born in 1953 these cars continue to be highly
sought after. This 71 belongs to the C3 generation and is one of
the nicest out there. It is a survivor type car with 33,000 miles
on the odometer which are believed to be original based on the
mileage noted on some previous receipts. It has had some mechanical
upgrades but all of the original parts come with the car. It is
painted in its original Ontario Orange paint which is in great
shape. This year had the removable TTops and rear windshield plus
it comes with the bags for the TTops. All of the chrome is in good
condition with no pitting or issues. It rides on its original rally
wheels which are wrapped in new BFG Radial T/A tires.
Under the hood sits the numbers matching LS5 454 V8 motor that runs
great. In an effort to make it a good dependable driver the motor
was gone through and it received multiple recent upgrades less than
a year old. This includes a Crower cam, lifters, roller rockers,
guides, springs, retainers, and locks as well as a Cloyes timing
chain assembly, new clutch, new pressure plate and flywheel
assembly, new fuel pump, new carburetor, new intake, Flowmaster
mufflers, new radiator, new trailing arm assembly, all new
u-joints, an MSD 6A ignition, MSD wires, MSD coil, and all new
motors/trans/3rd member seals and gaskets. It also got new motor
mounts during the process. So while the car has been kept
unrestored to maintain its originality it has been gone through to
make sure it is a good reliable driver. It has factory power
steering, power brakes and air conditioning but a new compressor
has been installed. Paired with the motor is a 4 speed manual
transmission that moves through the gears smoothly.
The interior is complete in its original Dark Saddle vinyl and in
excellent shape. Everything is stock except for the stereo and
speakers which have been upgraded. Even the fiber optics are
working correctly which is something that tends to go out on these
early C3 Corvettes. The car is in great condition throughout and in
addition to some original parts it comes with a bunch of receipts
and even the original invoice.
If you are in the market for a collector quality Corvette this nice
survivor is a great fit. It is a nicely optioned car and low
mileage cars like this are only getting more difficult to find.
