For Sale: 1971 Chevrolet Corvette in Lutz, Florida

Vehicle Description

We don't have to mention that this 1971 Chevrolet Corvette convertible has been given big investments over the factory performance setup. After all, that big air scoop with a supercharger underneath instantly commands all your attention. But while you already know this is a street-eating powerful machine with growling side pipes, it also has a bright exterior and comfy interior to be an all-around appealing drop-top.

We'll get to the details on the big power motor in a moment, but first, it's worth mentioning the allure of the full package that surrounds it. The trim tag tells us this is wearing its factory-correct Sunflower Yellow. This color was only available for two years, and a later respray means this one remains vibrant. The good gloss is ready to show off this Stingray's distinct lines... and there's a ton of them. You have the factory pieces, like the sharply pointed front end, crisp fender tops, and a hint of rear spoiler. And because black looks terrific against yellow, this one comes with both a black folding roof and a black removable hardtop. And of course, there's the right brightwork. You have classic pieces, like the bumpers and luggage rack. But what we know you'll love are the performance-oriented additions, like the shotgun hood scoops, polished Torq Thrust wheels, and header side pipes.

Because the black looks so good against the yellow, we especially like the look of the full black interior. It's a proper driver's setup with high-back bucket seats, a center console in-between, and a grippy sports steering wheel. There are some nice details, like the smooth dash, good carpeting, and real wood inserts in the doors. You have room for improvement if you want to restore the dials or add a modern stereo. But really, we already know you will find the rumble of those side pipes and the whirl of the supercharger an irresistible tune that's absolutely worth the price of admission.

The power this one makes is so big that the hood can't contain it. There was a solid investment in making this motor bright and tidy, because after all, you know everyone's got to ask you to lift the custom hood everywhere you park this Stingray. The base of this power package is a 350 cubic-inch ZZ4 performance crate V8. We're told this has been enlarged to 383ci and that the build only has about 200 miles on it. While unverified, it certainly is a fresh and powerful package. That's also because it has the best performance pieces, like an Edelbrock four-barrel carburetor, Edelbrock E-force aluminum heads, and headers feeding the side pipes. Plus the B&M 162 supercharger turns this into an awesome powerhouse from the moment you twist the key. This also has the right supporting components, like an MSD distributor, new spark plugs, and an aluminum radiator with electric fans. The TH400 three-speed automatic transmission was built for big power. And when you have this much power in an American muscle machine, you expect it to be a wild child. But since this is a Corvette, you get great features like the fully independent suspension and four-wheel power disc brakes with new rotors and master cylinder. Plus, there's power steering and wide BF Goodrich radials.

This is the one with speed and stance. So when a build is this vibrant, unique, and mean, you know you need to hurry to grab this deal. Call today!!!
