1969 Chevrolet Corvette Convertible
The aerodynamic lines of America's original sports car make it the
one automobile nobody mistakes for anything else. In a coupe or
convertible this is the genuine article, designed and engineered
without compromise. Corvette stands proudly alone, because nobody
but Chevrolet can turn out a car like this on a production line.
And it's as honest as it is beautiful. As you've learned to
On our showroom floor here at the Classic Auto Mall this black
beauty, a 1969 Chevrolet Corvette Convertible. Beautiful lines
topped off with excellent chrome for this year the real racing form
was taking shape. Owned by the current consigner for 30 years and
the beneficiary of a restoration in the mid 90's it is retaining
its shine and appeal and is looking fabulous. Always garage kept
and a very original car it is sporting newer carpeting and padding
and a new battery. Stay tuned for amazement!
Clean and beautifully preserved fiberglass is bathed in a
presentable black metallic paint (difficult to see in the photos
but a close inspection will leave you impressed and dazzled!). The
Stingray moniker is back but now all one word. Emulating the
graceful sea creature of its namesake, we have a long and low hood
with highlighted silver vented sharklike front quarters and a low
stance sculpted body line. Hidden headlights push downward towards
the front V shaped bumper and chrome surrounded intake vents below.
On the back are dual winglike bumpers that frame dual duals for
taillights. Up top is a black canvas convertible top which glides
up and down gracefully and seamlessly. The rear plastic window is a
bit fogged, but one is still able to see out of it. In lieu of the
side pipes a nice thin stainless steel trim piece curves with the
rockers and adds a nice highlight to the bottom of the car. 15 inch
deep dish rally wheels are all around and are wrapped by BF
Goodrich T/A Radials.
The buckets and console setup is in this car and the seats and
interior coverings such as the door panels are renewed and looking
very nice. The high back buckets appear sculpted from the wind with
their all black vinyl coverings and ergonomic head rests which just
peer over the top of the rear deck. Black smooth bolsters surround
textured tuck and roll vinyl which is slightly lighter than the
bolsters. Door panels are molded black plastic and a smaller padded
cloth carbon fiber-esque horizontal panel and very clean and shiny
door handles and turn knob locks. A nice black center console races
through these seats and rises to house the Corvette radio and a
quintuplet of gauges and wiper switch on top. Looking onto the deep
circular inset gauges in front of the steering wheel, these are
very clean and have near perfect bezels. The like new original
steering wheel fronts the dash and below is plush very clean newer
A 350ci numbers matching V8 crowds the engine bay and is documented
as such. On top is a single 4-barrel carburetor, and there is a
TH400 3-speed automatic transmission on back which is also numbers
matching. An AV coded 3.08 posi-traction rear axle is on the back.
The entire engine bay is very clean, has a painted GM orange/red
block, ribbed cast valve covers and a polished chromed air cleaner
cover with correct factory 350 badging.
Underneath is looking very good with slight surface rust, a clean
fuel tank and clean floor pans. The suspension and steering parts
look solid and full independent rear suspension with a
frame-anchored differential unit is on board. Position of each
wheel established by three links: tubular axle drive shafts,
transverse strut rods, torque control arms with vertical suspension
loads taken by transverse leaf springs. Built-in camber adjustment
at strut rod inner ends. Power disc brakes are all around and a
clean exhaust is on as well.
This car is very nicely preserved, and the new interior is great. A
twist of the key and it fired right up, and we were off to the test
track. It performed beautifully with great acceleration from that
350 ci V8 rated at 300hp. Awesome handling from the complex
suspension, the transmission shifts smoothly. No complaints
A nice survivor if you will with a wonderfully preserved engine
bay, good looking mill, interior redux, and an exterior black
metallic respray paint, and chrome trimmings. A great driver and
it's a convertible! Top down and goin' like hell!
