For Sale: 1970 Chevrolet Corvette in O'Fallon, Illinois

Vehicle Description

C3 Corvette fans! Gateway Classic Cars of Fort Lauderdale is pleased to present this far-out 1970 Corvette Stingray Roadster, complete with removable hardtop. 1970 was the very last year for the high-compression C-3's. After that, performance dropped considerably through 1982. 1970 is only the third year for the fresh C3 design. The C3 Corvettes were a big, welcome departure from the pre-1963 harsher-riding chassis, and feature independent suspension instead of the old solid axle design- which enhances handling and road manners considerably. Body lines are bold on the 1968-1982 Corvettes. They are unmistakable and classic, yet are relatively affordable compared to older Corvettes. This car sports a nice light blue exterior & black soft top, along with a vinyl wrapped removable hard top. These chrome bumper Corvettes are highly desirable, as they are faithful to the original intent of the 1968 model. By 1974, chrome bumpers were gone forever. Those front fender vents should actually be body color with chrome edges...a fun & easy project for its new owner to take on and correct. The Chevrolet rallys with raise white letter radial tires brings it all together. The engine bay is still presentable and mostly correct. The block VIN matches the car VIN, and the factory air conditioning, power steering and power brakes enhance the drivability and desirability of this Stingray. This is the base 350/300 horse, 380 ft. lb of torque small-block 350 V8. It fires right up and runs strong, and it's tied to a turbo-hydramatic automatic transmission for effortless cruising. All said, stomping on this puppy will put a smile on your face and propel you back to a time when gas was cheap and cool cars like this were the envy of everyone. Corvettes were not cheap back then, usually reserved for the well healed, and kids across America could only dream of owning one. Well, here ya go. Now is your chance. The owner has provided recent receipts totaling several thousand dollars of work for mechanical maintenance and repairs, helping assure this beautiful Corvette is as trouble free as possible. Good C3s like this do not last long around here. Contact us today!
