For Sale: 1969 Chevrolet Corvette in Morgantown, Pennsylvania

Vehicle Description

1969 Chevrolet Corvette

The sales brochure in 1969 claimed that the car had a gauge "for everything but your blood pressure". Tachometer, ammeter, oil pressure, sweep second rally clock, fuel gauge, mileage and trip odometer, warning lights for seat belts, headlight position and door ajar. The center console houses fingertip controls for the heater, defroster, radio, vents, ashtray, cigarette lighter, shift lever and parking brake, plus an engine rating plate and softly glowing space-age fiber optics that monitor outside running lights. Color-keyed deluxe push button seat belts and inertia action shoulder belts, on the coupe, retract out of the way when not in use. From slimline bucket seats, drivers enjoy just the right feel of the new competition steering wheel with a resilient rim.

On our showroom floor here at the Classic Auto Mall this green beauty, a 1969 Chevrolet Corvette. Beautiful lines topped off with excellent chrome for this year the real racing form was taking shape. Owned and enjoyed by the current consigner and a survivor it is retaining its shine, appeal and numbers matching status all the while looking fabulous. Always garage kept and a very original car sporting new tires that are ready to be used. Stay tuned for amazement!

Exterior
It's 1969 and this Corvette is bathed in Fathom Green over the fiberglass moldings that make up the body. A few chips, scratches and paint defects are noted, but nothing to truly detract from the beauty of the design. This design utilizes some nice curves, has a retro throwback with the shark "gills" in the front quarter, and uses glorious chrome (soon to go away!). That chrome leads the way with a V shaped front bumper and surrounding grille supports, all in good condition. Stingray...now one word...is showing up in badging just above the "gills". Chrome window surrounds and side view mirrors are there too and a blacked out stainless steel rocker covering emphasizes the exaggerated coke bottle design of the sensuously curved sides. A T top which has removable green fiberglass panels works flawlessly and shows no leaks. In back a vertical rear glass has the long "flying buttress" B pillars that gently land on the rear deck where the gas filler cap is in the very center. The back of the car leaves an impression too with the split chromed bumpers, round taillights and dual exhaust exiting from the roll pan on each corner. 15 inch deep trim ringed rally wheels are on all 4 corners and all are wrapped with raised white lettered BFG Radial T/A's.

Interior
A wonderful compliment to the exterior Fathom Green, we offer up a clean Saddle vinyl covered interior. This neat Saddle first makes its appearance on the door panels. Neatly molded and sculpted with small striped Saddle broadcloth center panels the lock turn knobs, door actuator, and window crank are housed here. Slipping into the high back thin design buckets we have smooth Saddle bolsters and air vented tuck and roll vinyl cloth like inserts. These chairs are in excellent condition, as is the center console with its padded armrest/storage lid, with the remainder of the console moving towards the dash in molded Saddle plastic to cover the hump. Also, here is the shift lever handbrake and ashtray surrounded in black plastic. Moving up from the console we have the radio which is an aftermarket AM/FM/Cassette. Also, 5 gauges are lined up above in a panel that monitors everything but your blood pressure (as the brochure says!). A nice black rimmed rally steering wheel with a trio of satin spokes which come together in the center and mount up with the Saddle center steering column. An angled dash houses dual deep inset round speedo and tach as well as eyeball A/C vents, and a few simple pulls. Padded Saddle vinyl covers the dash and dash top and is all in excellent condition. Saddle carpeting is on the floors, and this wraps up a very clean presentation...take a tan bow!

Drivetrain
A forward flip of the hood, and we see the numbers matching, original 350ci L-46 V8 block complete with A/C and power steering. This mill now sports a Holley 4-barrel carburetor on top but the original carb is included as are the spark plug shields. A Muncie 4-speed manual transmission is on back and this is also from the factory numbers matching as per the numbers decode. On back, an AN coded 3.55 positraction rear axle is on. All very clean and corrosion free with like new hoses and wiring.

Undercarriage
Slight wear and patina are seen underneath, but overall, a solid rust free frame is looking great. All independent coil spring front suspension helps you navigate the turns properly and on the back, a fully independent suspension with frame anchored differential unit and transverse leaf springs keep the rear planted. Disc brakes are all around and dual exhaust with Flowmaster mufflers works its way rearward to the round chrome tips and all is fine underneath on this 69.

Drive-Ability
I just adore these late 60's 'Vettes so I hopped into the thin high backs and it was off to the test track, (definitely one of the perks of this job!). Here this car has great acceleration, bias free panic stopping, and great handling with that complex suspension. All functions were operating up to snuff and it was a hoot to take a second lap with the T-tops out.

All replaced parts will come with their original parts if you decide to bring it back to 100% factory. Otherwise, you have a clean high performance piece of sculpture that you can drive everyday reliably, and look great while doing it. The Saddle is definitely an eye catcher and with the splendid green exterior and peppering of chrome its 1969 again!
