Our restored 1969 Corvette look great in white so it should be no
surprise that it remains in great condition. The C3s are considered
by some as the best looking of the bunch with their chrome bumpers
and hidden windshield wipers, and this one is no exceptions.
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.
The 1969 white Corvette L36 Convertible we have here at Skyway

and drive and enjoy, plus it is a numbers matching big block 427
L36 Corvette, who could ask for more.
