For Sale: 1971 Chevrolet Corvette in Lavergne, Tennessee

Vehicle Description

This 1971 Chevrolet Corvette convertible gives you numbers-matching V8 power, the numbers-matching four-speed, a cool classic interior, and overall drop-top appeal. So it only gets better when it's dipped in a sleek representation of its correct single-year color.

The trim tag tells us this was born Brands Hatch Green, and it's a color we love. After all, it's named after a British racing circuit, and this color is deep enough to almost be called British Racing Green. And the luggage on the back seems to really go with the European attitude. You'll absolutely be showing this color off plenty because the respray even gave it a nice metallic element. And this deserves to command extra attention. Because this deep green has its name special to 1971 only. The sharply pointed front bumper, two-piece rear bumper, wide exhaust tips, and iconic Rally wheels are all part of a very speedy style. And the overall package has the look of a car that you just know needs to be driven.

The black roof has a dark and clean style that goes well with the deep green. And why you take it down, you still get the same blackout appeal from the full black interior. And the aggressive darkness gets you ready for a driver's environment. You have high-back bucket seats, a center console in-between, a three-spoke sports steering wheel, crisp/clear gauges, and a shifter where you want to rest your right hand. But more than just driver-ready, you'll appreciate this classic for its vintage details, like the working Delco AM/FM radio, wood-like trim in the doors, and bright courtesy lights that greet you when the door opens.

The engine bay is detailed with a crisp and clean presentation. And there are nice pieces like the bold block, finned valve covers, and a shining air grabber with callout. It makes for a great way to showcase the numbers-matching 350 cubic-inch V8. It's a well-kept motor that fires up eagerly as it inhales deeply from the four-barrel carburetor. This is a strong small block, and the numbers-matching four-speed manual transmission means you get to keep the control firmly in your hands. As you look underneath, you'll spot a nice investment in some newer bushings and a newer rear transverse leaf spring. Plus, the independent suspension, power steering, four-wheel power disc brakes make for a solid driver.

The sale comes complete with the original warranty card, owner's manual, build receipts, and maintenance records. Here's a cool drop-top Corvette that has plenty of American power and a bit of distinct European flair. Call today!!!
