This Corvette looks fantastic, runs great, and is an excellent driver. The car in finished in the beautiful and highly desirable color combination of bright red over black. This Stingray is loaded with great options such as air conditioning, power steering, power windows, and tilt/telescopic steering column.

This Corvette is "Numbers Matching" meaning the engine in the car is the same one that was installed into the car in the factory in St. Louis. The last six digits of the VIN are stamped on the engine pad, which is pictured in this ad, and the engine is original to the car.

We have this car priced to sell and are offering an excellent opportunity to own a very desirable classic Corvette Stingray at an unbeatable value. One could easily buy this car now and sell it for more than the purchase price in years to come as the market on C3 "chrome bumper" Corvettes from 1968 to 1972 is absolutely red hot right now and on the rise.

As a side note, this Corvette is not a dealer auction vehicle. We hand pick each car after careful inspection. Our Corvettes come from owners who expect their car to go to someone that will give the vehicle the same care and attention as they did. We invite and encourage you to examine the car in person or have the car inspected. Please take the time to scrutinize each picture. We photograph each vehicle to the greatest extent so you can feel confident about your purchase. If you have a question about the Corvette, just give us a call.

Exterior

The red exterior is in excellent driver condition. As one can see in the photos, the finish has dazzling gloss, smooth finish, and deep shine. The rally wheels and center caps are in great condition with a brilliant finish and no curb rash. Please note that this Stingray has the correct and original 4-clip style beauty rings, not the cheaper foreign made replacements. The General white letter tires are literally brand new with less than 10 miles on them. They are correctly sized 225/70R15. There are a few tiny blemishes around car and some hairline cracks that were too small to show up in pictures, but nothing that is really noticeable from about five feet away. This car has no rust issues, as one can see in the many photos of the underside and in the video this car is very clean underneath. The frame is solid around the "key hole" area in front of the rear tire and we have seen no evident of corrosion around the windshield or "birdcage" area, which is the most common spots for rust on a C3 Corvette. We have included specific photos of the areas most prone to rust to show how nice this car looks.

Window Date Codes

Please note that almost all of the glass on this Corvette, both "Astro Ventilation" door windows and even the pop-out rear window, are date coded and original as each piece predates the car's body build date of December 3, 1970 (E03). Original glass is a good indication that this car has had no major accident history and never sustained significant damage.

The exterior looks just as good in person as it does in the photos.

Interior

The black interior of the Corvette is in outstanding condition. The seats look almost new with no excessive wear or split seams. The seats are not worn in the typical area where the driver gets in and out. The carpet is in also in nice condition overall with no stains and showing just a small amount of wear. This includes the rear carpet, which is often neglected. The original radio sounds great and most importantly the dash has never been cut or modified for an aftermarket installation. The door panels are in fantastic condition, there are no cracks in the typical spot where the driver's elbow sits. The dash and console are in good shape with no cracks, fading, or sun damage. The car has an aftermarket radio that was specifically made for this model Corvette, most importantly the dash has never been cut or modified for the installation. The dash and console are in good shape with no cracks, fading, or sun damage. Please note that both shoulder belts work and retract properly. The seat belt retractors are a very common problem on this era Corvette and something most buyers do not think to check. This Corvette has never been smoked in; there are no burns marks and no aroma of cigarettes.

Corvette interiors from this era are not known to wear well and the excellent condition of this interior is a huge testament to the meticulous care and attention this car has received throughout its life.

The interior looks just as good in person as it does in the photos.

Mechanical

This Corvette seems to be in very good mechanical condition. The original numbers matching engine starts every time, runs well, and idles smooth. It drives great and feels nice on the road and at highway speeds. In the video below one can observe the car accelerating on the highway up to about 70mph, shifting through all the gears, braking to stoplight, and going through some curves. Please note that there are no vibrations and the car performs quite well overall. The brakes are responsive and do not pull to one side or the other. The transmission shifts well throughout the power band. The gauge shows that the engine makes great oil pressure. The car runs cool and does not overheat. Also, the engine compartment is beautifully clean, detailed, and correct as one can see in the photos.

The radio works as do all the exterior lights, dash lights, indicators, horn, and wipers all work. The a/c works and blows cold. One can see the compressor turning on and engaging properly in the video. The blower for the heater and a/c works on all speeds but high. The entire vacuum system for the headlights and wiper door works correctly. Please note that the vacuum system work properly from both the respective switches on the dash and the override switches. The entire operation from both switches can be viewed in the video. All of the gauges work with the obvious exception of the clock. Not enough can be said as to how much of a pleasure it is to drive this car, especially with the T-Tops out on a beautiful day.

A note on the fiber optic light monitoring system, we consistently receive many questions about the purpose of this system; exactly what it is and what it does. The sole and main idea behind the fiber optic light monitoring system is to simply confirm that all of the exterior lights, headlights, indicators, tail lights, etc., are working and to make the driver aware of a burned out bulb. Each lamp on the outside of the car has an actual fiber optic cable the runs to an indicator on the center console. There are nine small indicators on the console and each has its own finer optic cable. When the bulb goes on the light travels through the fiber optic cable and illuminates the corresponding indicator on the console. If someone does not remember to plug the cable end into the lamp housing, does any work to the center console, or if there is a break in a connection or anywhere along the cable, that indicator no longer works. As one can image, over time this is very common....for more information please contact the seller.
