West Coast Classics are proud to present an exceptional example of
this 1969 Chevrolet Corvette T-Top Coupe with a date correct big
block 427/390HP V8 engine matched to a 4 speed Muncie manual
transmission! The car is extremely striking in its 'Le Mans Blue'
(code 976) factory color paint with a matching 'Bright Blue'
leather interior (412) trim and side pipe exhausts.VIN#
194379S709534 Odometer reads 68,518 miles For 1968, both the
Corvette body and interior were completely redesigned. As before,
the car was available in either coupe or convertible models, but
the coupe was fitted with a near-vertical removable rear window and
removable roof T-Top roof panels. Included with coupes were hold
down straps and a pair of vinyl bags to store the roof panels and
the headlamps moved into position via a vacuum operated system
rather than electrically as on the previous generation, and new
hide-away windshield wipers utilized a vacuum door. The door
handles were flush with the top of the doors with a separate
release button. Front fenders had functional engine cooling vents.
It would prove to be the long lived successor to the second
generation (1963-67) years and was often referred to by enthusiasts
as the 'Shark' with no initial model designation at first, but
which later became known as the 'Stingray' from 1969 onwards. The
new T-Top 'Notchback' Coupe would prove very popular and go on to
outsell the top-selling convertible for the first time in the
marques history. The somewhat freer breathing early engines of
1968-70 are the most collectible and desirable today.This
particular example has no signs of any major accidents and is the
beneficiary of a very presentable repaint in its original 'Le Mans
Blue' factory color paint and looks extremely striking with an
original specification matching 'Bright Blue' leather interior. The
car must be driven to be truly appreciated - drives straight as an
arrow with no strange road wobbles, shakes or rattles - a truly
remarkable daily driver with the 4 speed manual transmission
shifting smoothly through all the gears and the temperature always
remains cool!This is a rare opportunity to own a great daily
driving example of the second year of the third generation
