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
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.
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!
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.
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
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
