There are few more desirable Stingrays out there than this 1970
Chevrolet Corvette LT1. This is a restored and well-documented
coupe that loves to show off it's factory blue-on-blue style. But
the part you'll be showing off the most is the highly correct
presentation of the almighty numbers-matching LT1 V8.
The LT1 was one of the hottest small blocks ever to hit the
streets, and we love it in the factory-correct Mulsanne Blue. The
name instantly gets people thinking about LeMans, and a good
respray later in life means it looks vibrant out on a sunny Sunday
drive. The lines on this Stingray are crisp, and so you really get
to see the sharply-pointed front end, flared fenders, and flying
buttress rear pillars. And of course, the LT1 has the special hood
with white stripe package that helps outline the power dome. This
one really takes the time to be an accurate-looking classic, right
down to the Goodyear Polyglas tires on the shining Rally wheels.
And the reason to make sure this looks so correct is because you
have true rarity. There were less than 1,300 LT1 Corvettes in this
inaugural year, and the paperwork on this shows it's a Canadian
car, which only adds to its rarity. The low odometer is even
believed to reflect actual mileage.
The full sea of blue continues inside. The lighter exterior with
darker interior gives this the kind of sophisticated look you'd
expect on a European sports car, and this all-American was born
this way! The bucket seats, door panels, carpeting, and center
console all look vibrant and have been treated with good respect.
It has a correct look on everything from the AM/FM stereo to the
three-spoke sports steering wheel on the tilt column. In fact, take
a closer look at the wheel. The center cap has a Zora Duntov
signature. We don't have any documentation to show that this is his
actual autograph, but it is a good reminder that the LT1 was one of
his race-bred projects. And because this is a driver's machine,
you'll love how the large speedo and tach dance in front of you,
while the full auxiliary readout package prominently to the side at
eye-level. Plus, don't forget that this comes from the years of the
removable rear window. It combines with the T-tops for a
Under the hood is what makes this car extra-special. This is the
numbers-matching LT1 350 cubic-inch V8. It's the ultimate small
block built with forged internals and solid lifters direct from
Chevy. And as you look over the whole engine bay, you'll spot the
right pieces, like the finned aluminum valve covers, Winters
aluminum intake, and the correct big Holley four-barrel carburetor.
This special V8 fires up with gusto, and you can just tell it's
ready to hit the road. And you're in full control thanks to the
numbers-matching Muncie M20 four-speed manual transmission. In
fact, speaking of control, this Stingray is a terrific sports car
with a fully independent sports suspension, four-wheel power disc
brakes, and a Positraction rear end.
