This 1971 Chevrolet Corvette has its numbers-matching V8 and
desirable numbers-matching four-speed. And when you have a
well-done package that gives you everything from a terrific exhaust
note to a cool blue-on-blue style, then you know it's the kind of
thoroughbred that loves to hit the open road.
This one really seems to get its total appearance right, and it all
starts with the paint. The blue gives off plenty of luster from a
quality application. And the body is a well-respected example with
a clean and straight look of proper care. It makes for a terrific
combination where the shine loves to highlight how this car
perfectly bends the rounded fenders with sharp elements like the
well-creased door line and shark-like nose. You may want a
professional detail if you need to take this to the concourse lawn,
but for those who love to be seen in their classics, this one is
ready from day one. So while we all know these Stingrays can go
fast, you're also going to slow down a little bit just so people
get to stare a little longer as this one passed by.
And speaking of people staring, everyone gets to see you in this
Corvette just by taking the T-tops out. You'll happily share this
interior with the world as the dark blue looks stylish against the
lighter blue exterior. The seats, carpeting, door panels, and
center console all show exceptionally well. And you'll even like
the details, like the working courtesy lights and newer windows
seals. The three-spoke sports steering wheel and shifter let you
know exactly where you want your hands to be. And while the correct
Delco AM/FM radio is still cranking out tunes, we bet you'll really
just love removing the rear window to let the breeze through and
hear the V8 sing.
Under the hood is the numbers-matching 350 cubic inch V8. It has a
stock and clean appearance where even the fundamentals like the
belts, hoses, and wires have a quality look. And this
well-respected impression continues with this way this V8 fires up
and runs with confidence. The numbers-matching four-speed manual
transmission gives you total control over the V8 and its rumbling
soundtrack, which is another reminder of how much a driver's
classic this really is. Plus, the fully independent suspension,
power steering and four-wheel power disc brakes keeps this one of
the best vintage sports cars around.
Complete with owner's manual, this Stingray provides distinction
and pedigree in a terrific package. So don't miss your chance, call
