For Sale: 1969 Chevrolet Corvette in Mooresville, North Carolina

Vehicle Description

HIGHLIGHTS: Super clean 1969 Corvette survivor! Numbers matching 350 V8, automatic, and A/C! Beautiful factory correct Fathom Green over green bucket seats. Complete ownership history since new!

HISTORY: A strike at the St. Louis plant meant production for the '69 Corvettes stretched to December of '69. This particular car left the factory on 11/19/69. A couple of months later it was sold new from Scarborough Chevrolet in Statesville, NC. In 1972, the car was sold to the second owner who held it until 2009 when he sold it to his daughter and the car left North Carolina and spent approximately 6 years in Florida. It was then sold back to her father in 2015. It changed hands in 2017 and then again in 2020 before arriving at Sheltons. Included in the sale is a copy of nearly every title ever issued on the car, and a copy of the original MSO.

BODY OVERVIEW: The body on this Corvette is in great shape for the age. Seasoned Corvette owners will be happy to know that the bonding strips are still present so you can rest assured these are the factory panels. When you take in account that this car has never seen a restoration, then you get a much clearer picture for how well its been taken care of. The front chrome bumper is showing its age a little, but beyond that the rest of the chrome shows very well. This car is the perfect vehicle to cruise with care and to take to local events.

PAINT CONDITION OVERVIEW: Even though this car hasn't seen a restoration, we do know that it has seen a repaint in its factory correct Fathom Green. We are unsure of when it was painted, but based on the condition of the paint we would guess sometime in the late 80's early 90s. It shows very well at 10-feet but upon closer inspection you'll see typical wear and tear that is consistent with a car that has been on the road for the majority of its life. Ultimately, it's gorgeous and has a depth that can only be achieved by this shade of green.

INTERIOR CONDITION OVERVIEW: The interior is in great shape and much like the body is showing some age here and there. Originally leaving the factory with green leather seats, at some point the front seats were recovered in a green vinyl and they show well. There are no rips or tears in the interior and everything works the way its suppose to, except the wiper door needs some help going up and down. One notable change is the addition of a RetroSound radio and a new Chevy themed steering wheel. Lastly, the original metal gauge faces of the speedometer and tachometer are in rough cosmetic condition. A previous owner opted to replace them with new gauges, however the original gauges (including the odometer with the mileage reading from when it was removed) are pictured and included in the sale.

MECHANICAL OVERVIEW: Powering this corvette is the factory numbers matching 350 V8. The stamp pad wears the correct HZ 300hp Suffix and as well the correct partial vin. This Corvette fires up with ease; quite impressively for a survivor! Even when cold, a bump of the key will cause this V8 to spring to life. It runs smoothly, has just the right exhaust note for a C3 Corvette, and has more than enough power to have some fun. Equipped with power steering and power brakes, she is a blast to drive. Up front, a new aluminum radiator has already been replaced to ensure hot summer day fun. The A/C blows cold but the compressor is a bit noisy when turned on.

WHAT YOU'LL LOVE ABOUT THIS CAR: Very rarely do you find a car with this much history and originality.

WHAT YOU MIGHT HATE ABOUT THIS CAR: Since it hasn't seen a restoration, this car might not be for everyone. But, make no mistake this car can be enjoyed the way it sits.

DOES IT NEED ANYTHING? Most everything works on the car. But the two notable items are the A/C compressor that is a little noisy and the wiper door that needs a little help going up and down. The wipers work just fine, but the door on the cowl is vacuum operated and needs manual assistance to operate.

WHAT BUYER IS LOOKING FOR THIS CAR? Anyone looking for a numbers-matching C3 Corvette at an affordable price that they could keep original or take to the next level and make it their own.
