For Sale: 1971 Chevrolet Corvette in O'Fallon, Illinois

Vehicle Description

Gateway Classic Cars of Scottsdale is pleased to offer this all-American classic 1971 Chevrolet Corvette for sale on consignment with our Arizona showroom, located in North Phoenix. The C3 Corvette was introduced in 1968 and many regard the '71 model year as the last for true performance before crushing federal emissions standards kicked in. This Corvette was originally ordered in Yellow but around 15 years ago it was repainted in Red, which as we all know is a fan favorite on these vehicles. There appears to be some sun-fading in places on the paint but the car still presents well. T-Tops are a desirable option and the custom wire wheels are a unique appearance touch. While the character lines on this sports car resemble most other Corvettes from 1971, the big block motor stuffed between the fenders was reserved for the select few and came with some appearance and handling upgrades such as a high-domed hood and larger stabilizer bars. This 454 CID V8 engine was rated at 365hp and is believed to be original to this vehicle (according to the seller's paperwork). A larger capacity radiator helps cool this big motor down and the dual snorkel air cleaner keeps it breathing well. With the 3-speed automatic transmission, this Corvette has boat loads of spare torque and a lot of fun is to be had by just stepping on the gas and letting the motor do the work for you. It's a Corvette after all; you've got good braking and Posi-traction to back up the driving experience. Hop inside and the period correct Tan colored interior turned out to be a nice color match for the Red repaint. Cloth and vinyl seating for two is well preserved and there's a surprising number of options available on the vehicle from power windows, air conditioning and an aftermarket Kenwood stereo system with AM/FM/Cassette. The tilt and telescopic steering column will be a relief to those of us who have a hard time fitting below the large steering wheel. This 1971 Chevrolet Corvette for sale is the kind of classic car you have been looking for- highly recognizable and something that generates respect and admiration everywhere you go. Not to mention, it's pretty fun to drive! Dream no longer; Give us a call at (623) 900-4884 and we'll help you get one step closer to making this big-block C3 Corvette yours!
