Vehicle Description

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 impressive.


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 today!!!
