Vehicle Description

1969 Chevrolet 427 Corvette L36 390 Horsepower

Why This Car Is Special

The Chevrolet Corvette C3 was a sports car that was produced by Chevrolet for the 1968 through 1982 model years. "Stingray" script nameplates appeared on front fenders, now one word, in contrast to the "Sting Ray" name used previously.

Car and Driver magazine wrote in October 1968, "The small-engine Corvettes are marginally fast and extraordinarily civilized. The large-engine Corvettes are extraordinarily fast and marginally civilized."

We have a restored 1969 Chevrolet Corvette 427 L36 390 Horsepower Convertible here at Skyway Classics that retains the original engine and has that long sleek look and the power to back up the look.

Mechanical Specs

The 427cubic inch L36 V8 is this car's original, matching-numbers engine, verified by the engine pad numbers showing its vin number and the LM code too.

The LM code makes it the L36 427 cubic inch engine with a substantial 390 horsepower, a Rochester Q-jet, Hydraulic Lifters, and a 4-Speed transmission.

With endless reserves of torque and an attitude that practically invites you to plant your foot on the floor, it's a blast to drive.
Under the hood you will find the numbers matching L36 427 cubic inch V8 with 390 horse that looks as it did from the factory. Everything appears correct, including the chrome valve covers, aluminum intake, Quadrajet Carb, and stickers on the chrome air cleaner, power disc brakes, ignition shielding and spark plug wires, and the cast iron exhaust headers leading back to the dual exhaust. It's a clean engine bay and has a lot of factory originality with factory correct hoses and clamps.

It rides on Rally wheels with chrome trim rings and caps and BF Goodrich Radial TA performance tires and the car rides and handles well with a traditional Corvette look.

It has the big block raised hood, 427 badging, great looking iconic side "Gill" vents, the Stingray emblem, chrome dual exhaust tips coming out of the back rear panel, and a super nice looking black convertible top offsetting the white body paint.
