Please call Matt directly at 513-708-1468 with any questions about this car.

Seven Hills Motorcars is glad to offer this beautiful numbers matching 1969 Corvette Stingray Coupe in fantastic condition and only 55,335 original miles. The car is very original and unmolested. This Corvette looks absolutely amazing in Riverside Gold with goldline tires and P02 deluxe wheel covers. The Riverside Gold (980) over Saddle Vinyl (420) color combination is highly desirable and truly striking on this Corvette body style. This is also the correct and original color scheme as verified by the codes on the trim tag, which is pictured in this ad. Besides the P02 wheel covers this Corvette is absolutely loaded with sought-after options such as air conditioning, automatic transmission, and power steering. I have personally driven this Stingray about ten miles and during that time the car was completely reliable with no problems and a true pleasure to drive. The very low original mileage is verified no only by the condition of the car, but also the clear Ohio title, picoted in this ad, that shows the mileage as Actual.

Beside the correct paint and trim codes, this Corvette is completely "Numbers Matching" and virtually every part we checked on the car is correct with the proper part numbers and appropriate date codes. We have run the numbers on literally hundreds of Corvettes over the years and there are very few that are so correct and original, this is especially true for the earlier "chrome bumper" C3 Corvettes. Even very detailed parts like the carburetor, distributor, starter, alternator, intake manifold, exhaust manifolds, all of the wheels, and even all of the glass all correct and original. The last six digits of the VIN, 735388, are stamped on the engine pad, which is pictured in this ad, and the engine is original to the car. The transmission is also original with the last six digits of the VIN stamped on the main case and pictured.

We have this car priced to sell and are offering an excellent opportunity to own a very desirable Corvette at an unbeatable value. One could easily buy this car now and sell it for more than the purchase price in years to come as the market on C3 "chrome bumper" Corvettes from 1968 to 1972 is absolutely red hot right now and on the rise. Please peruse all of the photos, video, list of numbers, and other information to get a true sense of how nice this Corvette really is.

As a side note, this Corvette is not a dealer auction vehicle. We hand pick each car after careful inspection. Our Corvettes come from owners who expect their car to go to someone that will give the vehicle the same care and attention as they did. We invite and encourage you to examine the car in person or have the car inspected. Please take the time to scrutinize each picture. We photograph each vehicle to the greatest extent so you can feel confident about your purchase. If you have a question about the Corvette, just give us a call.

Exterior

The Riverside Gold (980) exterior is in good driver condition. As one can see in the photos the finish has nice gloss and shines well with a smooth finish. Both doors open and shut nicely. The chrome and other bright looks great overall with and a brilliant finish. The P02 deluxe wheels are in excellent condition with a nice finish and no major curb rash. The BF Goodrich Silverstone Goldline Radial tires look almost brand new with 95% tread left. There are no major imperfections that have been excluded from the photos. As one would expect with a paint job with this many years on it the paint is showing its age. There are some tiny touch-ups, cracks, thin spots, and other minor blemishes around car that were too small to show up in pictures, but nothing else that is really noticeable from about five or ten feet away. The paint overall has a nice patina and we would suggest any perspective buyer look at the car in person to get the best view of how this car looks. As one can see in the many photos of the underside this car is very clean underneath and has no rust issues. The frame is totally solid around the "key hole" area in front of the rear tire and we have seen no evidence of corrosion around the windshield or "birdcage" area, which is the most common spots for rust on a C3 Corvette. We have included specific photos of the areas most prone to rust to show how nice this car looks.

Window Date Codes

Please note that ALL of the glass on this Corvette is date coded and original, the windshield, both "Astro Ventilation" side windows, and even the pop out rear window all predate the car's body build date of November 12, 1969 (P12). Original glass is a good indication that this car has had no major accident history and never sustained significant damage.

Interior

The Saddle Vinyl (420) interior of the Corvette is in outstanding original condition. The gauge faces are clean and crisp and the lenses are clear. The dash looks great with no cracks, fading, or sun damage. The door panels are in excellent condition overall; there are no cracks in the typical area where the driver's elbow would sit. Unlike many of the Corvettes from this era the door panel fit well and tight to the door.. The seats look just as good in person as they do in the photos. There is one spot of wear on the driver's seat bottom and minimal wear in the typical area on the bolster where the driver gets in and out. Please note that these appear to be the original seats and skins, not some cheap aftermarket covers or replacements. The carpet is in also in great condition with no stains, rips, or holes. This includes the rear carpet, which is often neglected. The console looks nice overall, there is one small crack in the parking brake console. The original radio works well and gets good reception. Most importantly the dash has never been cut or modified for an aftermarket installation. Please note that both seat belts work and retract properly. This is a common problem on C3 Corvettes and an issue many buyers do not think to check. The original jack and jack handle are still with the car stored correctly in the storage compartment behind the passenger seat. The spare is also still with the car. This Corvette has never been smoked in; there are no burns marks and no aroma of cigarettes. The T-Tops bags and original owner's manual are also included with the car.

Corvette interiors from this era are not known to wear well and the excellent condition of this original interior is a huge testament to the meticulous care and attention this car has received throughout its life and another great verification of the very low original mileage.

Mechanical

This Corvette seems to be in very good mechanical condition. As stated above I have driven this car about ten miles with no issues. The original numbers matching engine starts right away every time, runs well, and idles smooth. When the car is first started cold it properly goes into high idle then when the driver taps the throttle the engine goes into low idle just as it should. The car drives great and feels nice on the road and at highway speeds. In the video below one can observe the car accelerating on the highway up to about 70mph, shifting through all the gears, braking to stoplight, and going through some curves. Please note that there are no vibrations or strange noises and the car performs quite well overall. The brakes are responsive and do not pull to one side or the other. The transmission shift well throughout the power band. The car runs cool and does not overhe...for more information please contact the seller.
