VERY NICE, #'S MATCH 350 V8, TH400 AUTO, PWR STEER, PWR DISCS, 2 TOPS, QUALITY!!
Original, distinctive, and all the right upgrades, this high quality numbers-matching 1970 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray convertible is a great way to join the camaraderie of the 'Vette nation while remaining distinctive in all the best ways.
Corvette fans know that having code-982 Donnybrooke Green is a very cool rarity. Only available in 1970, it feels like there are hints of gold underneath the olive just as soon at the sunlight hits it. This is only amplified by investing in a very slick professional respray over the car's lifetime. Beyond just the paintwork, there's something great about the early C3 design. It combines the long and low American look with the Kamm-back styling of the Europeans. This car appears to have been well maintained throughout its life, with the fiberglass panels fitting nicely to hug the body's every curve snugly. Two tops means you have a nice-looking black folding roof when you need it, and a matching Donnybrooke Green roof when you want true distinction on arrival. These earlier C3s are also for the brightwork lovers, so the bumpers and rocker panels have a nice mirror-like shine. And of course, no classic Chevy sports car looks complete without the iconic rally wheels.
This is probably one of the best cars ever to have ordered a green interior. The color of the bucket seats, center console, door panels, and dash are only a shade darker than the rare exterior green. This is the way it came from the factory, to add distinction, while still looking like a very nicely coordinated total package. And let's face it, when you have a Stingray convertible that's open to the world, you need the interior and exterior to flow nicely together. As a true driver's sports car you get a three-spoke sports steering wheel with the large dual pod speedo and tach right in front of you. To the side is the full gauge package, and directly below that, features like the heat/defrost, and upgraded AM/FM/cassette stereo with CD changer are always within easy reach.
On the road is where Corvettes earned their legendary status, and this one has been enhanced to be the best. Under the hood is the original numbers-matching 350 cubic-inch V8. Remember, this was the last year for the high compression motors, so there's a little extra kick of power built into it before upgrades like the Edelbrock four-barrel carburetor and Edelbrock Performer intake were added. Not only are these powerful, but also the V8 looks show-ready on this example. Polished elements like the air cleaner, master cylinder, and alternator fit nicely with the painted finned valve covers to make for a total package that you'll be proud to show off. The motor fires up nicely, rumbles with confidence from the dual exhaust, and pulls away from every stoplight with authority. Add to this the three-speed automatic transmission, power steering, four-wheel disc brakes, and the full independent suspension, and this is the perfect go-anywhere sports convertible.
This Stingray comes with its rare original colors and factory-installed motor. It also has all the right upgrades without sacrificing its factory-correct spirit. That's why we know this green machine is a golden value that'll be leaving us quickly.
