This 1971 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray hits all the high notes of
originality, including its matching-numbers big block V8 and
attention-grabbing paint. And since this is both distinctive
distinct and powerful, the affordable price tag is even more
War Bonnet Yellow is a great Corvette color. While popular, it was
only available for a few years, so 'Vette people love it. That's
why it's nice to see an older respray still shining well on
hallmark elements, like the aggressively pointed front end. And the
whole body has great lines that show a well-respected classic. It
really reinforces the good care that comes from a car that has
averaged less than 1,500 miles annually. Plus, excellent brightwork
on the chrome bumpers, full rockers, and iconic Rally wheels all
really go nicely with car's special golden hue.
Black interiors are always desirable, and it only gets better on a
factory leather car. The material wears in with age, and so the
seats look well-suited for a good classic like this. The door
panels, carpeting, and dash all have that classic black look, too.
There are great factory features, like power windows, the Delco
AM/FM radio, and provisions for air conditioning (it will need
servicing to blow cold again.) And of course, you can take off the
T-tops and remove the rear window to listen to the roar of the
engine singing behind you.
Lift the hood and see an engine bay filled with big-block power.
This 454 cubic-inch LS5 V8 is the numbers-matching motor, and it
comes from the height of the big power era. So right in the middle
of that awesome-looking engine bay is an air topper with the
factory's 365 horsepower rating. This big V8 fires up readily as it
inhales deeply from the Rochester four-barrel carburetor. And the
dual exhaust has that unmistakable bass that tells you a big gun
has arrives on the scene. The TH400 three-speed automatic
transmission is a stout unit that knows how to handle the big power
with smoothness. It's easy to keep all this horsepower corralled
with the fully independent suspension. Plus, you have more great
driving features such as power steering, four-wheel power disc
brakes, and wide Cooper Cobra rubber at each corner.
The right color, the right original power, and the right price all
come together on this Stingray. So it's time to act on this before
this big block deal is back on the streets without you. Call
