For Sale: 1969 Chevrolet Corvette in O'Fallon, Illinois

Vehicle Description

Gateway Classic Cars of Charlotte is proud to digitally present this 1969 Chevrolet Corvette.This example was originally Le Mans Poly Blue (976); it has been repainted at some point in its driving life. The 350ci motor is shifted using the renowned manual 4-speed transmission. The desirability of this era Corvette has been skyrocketing, with the "chrome-nose" 1968-1972 model years setting the pace for the C3 generation collectability. The 1969 Corvette was again a Stingray. For this model year, the designers worked hard to address complaints from the previous year to give a smoother and more pleasant ride.As they usually are the year after a significant model introduction, changes for the 1969 Corvette were minor, mainly made to remedy problems noted by owners and the motoring media. The steering-wheel diameter was trimmed an inch for more under-rim thigh clearance. Interior door handles, and control knobs were redesigned for safety's sake. The previous dash-mounted ignition switch moved to the steering column, where it combined with the newly mandated column lock for additional security. Additionally, a flexible dash-mounted three-section map pocket was included to help make up for the need for a proper glovebox.Exterior alterations were likewise minimal; the most obvious was the return of the Stingray designation (now spelled as one word) in script over the front-fender louvers. Another change involved the door handles. New single-lever door handles replaced the conventional chrome handgrips with thumb-operated pushbuttons. A new headlight washer system was added, and windshield-washer jets were moved to the wiper arms. The already over-engineered hidden-wiper arrangement became even more complex with the addition of an override switch that allowed the vacuum-operated panel to be left up in freezing weather. At the rear, the previously separate backup lights were incorporated with the inboard taillamps. The frame was stiffened to reduce body shake, and the standard rim width went up another inch -- to eight -- for improved handling.Contact us soon so you can take off the T-Tops, and hit the road in this stylish Corvette ready for you to make yours.
