This 1971 Chevrolet Corvette takes the classic you love and adds
some cool details to create a car that's both unique and powerful.
Best of all, you get it for a value price.
There is something that immediately catches your eye on this car.
Corvette fans know that 1971 was still in the chrome front end
years, but this one was updated to the later color-matched style.
The front fenders were updated, too. This retains the chrome rear,
and so it's similar to the '73 car's exclusive style. Except there
are still classic details, like the Corvette badge leading the way.
It makes for a nice talking piece that doesn't stray from the full
Stingray family line. After all, everyone loves a Corvette finished
in red. And this also will always have the best C3 pieces, like the
long and pointed front end, beautifully formed fenders, and rear
styling that has both flying buttresses and an integrated rear
The black interior looks good against the red. It's a
driver-oriented environment with bucket seats, center console, and
a grippy sport steering wheel. There are good features like power
windows, an upgraded Kenwood AM/FM/cassette radio, and provisions
for factory air conditioning (will need servicing to blow cold
again.) The T-tops come out, and this was one of the last years for
the removable rear window that gives you a convertible-like breeze
through the interior. Don't forget that Chevy's 1973 update
eliminated the removable rear window. So you have a unique
situation where this one looks like the '73 with the color-matched
front end, but you still get the full wind-in-your-hair experience
whenever you want.
Under the hood is a 350 cubic-inch V8 that's a confirmed
year-correct Corvette block. It has been given some added
investment in flair with the bright air grabber and attractive
valve covers with cursive Corvette script. But really, the best
money spent was on added performance. This has a Holley four-barrel
carburetor, Edelbrock intake, and headers feeding the stainless
dual exhaust. The motor starts eagerly, idles nicely, and runs
well. Plus, the TH400 three-speed automatic transmission is a stout
unit that also shifts smoothly. And the power steering, four-wheel
power disc brakes, and the fully independent sports suspension make
it easy to enjoy this Corvette to the fullest.
Complete with owner's manual, this is a bright red Stingray with a
unique style and an attractive price. So you know it's a classic
that won't stay here long. Call now!
