For Sale: 1969 Chevrolet Corvette in Morgantown, Pennsylvania

Vehicle Description

1969 Chevrolet Corvette Coupe

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.

For consignment, a two ownerStingray from 1969. This car retains its factory exterior look and has a numbers matching drivetrain and was the beneficiary of a frame off restoration by the first owner. An all around great driver, fully functional, good looking with the removable T-Tops and I'm ready to relive 1969 all over again and again.

Exterior
It's 1969 and this Corvette is bathed in a respray of the original Daytona Yellow over the fiberglass moldings that make up the body. 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 stainless-steel rocker covering emphasizes the exaggerated coke bottle design of the sensuously curved sides. Daytona Yellow panels make up the roof and can be removed and stored behind the seats for some open air motoring. 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 225/70R15 blackwall BFG Radial T/A's.

Interior
In wonderful contrast to the exterior Daytona Yellow, we offer up a black vinyl covered interior. This black first makes its appearance on the door panels. Neatly molded and sculpted with small striped black knitted vinyl center panels the lock turn knobs, door actuator, are housed here. Slipping into the high back thin design buckets we have smooth black bolsters and air vented tuck and roll knitted vinyl 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 black plastic to cover the hump. Also here is the shift lever handbrake, power window switches, climate control dials, and ashtray surrounded in black plastic. Moving up from the console we have the radio which is the factory AM/FM system. Also 5 gauges are lined up above in a panel that monitors everything but your blood pressure, (as the brochure says!). A nice black rally steering wheel with a trio of satin spokes which come together in the center and mount up with the much appreciated RPO N37 tilt and telescopic black 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 black vinyl covers the dash and dash top and is all in excellent condition. Black carpeting is on the floors, and this wraps up a very clean presentation...take a black vinyl bow!

Drivetrain
A forward flip of the hood, and we see the original 427ci V8 numbers matching block complete with updated to R134A AC and power steering. A single Rocherster 4-barrel carburetor is on top under the chrome dressed air cleaner. On back is a Muncie M20 4-speed manual transmission and this is also from the factory as per the number and stamping decode. On the back a correct AT coded 3.08 heavy duty Positraction rear axle is on. All very clean and corrosion free with like new hoses, the correct clamps and wiring which goes through a factory ignition.

Undercarriage
Very little wear or flaws are seen underneath with a solid frame in all steellooking great and rust free and even the fiberglass is appearing as new. All independent SLA coil spring suspension is up front and in the rear is a fully independent suspension with frame anchored differential unit and transverse leaf spring arrangement. Power disc brakes are all around 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. A true joy to drive with the experience heightened thanks to the power steering and tilt steering column.

Here you have a clean high performance piece of sculpture that you can drive everyday reliably, and look great while doing it. The Daytona Yellow is definitely an eye catcher and with the pristine black exterior and peppering of chrome it certainly is 1969 again!
