1971 Corvette Convertible, LT-1, 4 speed, numbers match and we believe "The Real Deal", 30,185 actual miles. Classic White paint with Red interior and White soft top. Very straight NO HIT body with mostly original paint, original interior, original drivetrain (engine, trans, and rear), smog system with dated clamps... all in very nice condition. NCRS award in 2013. A pinnacle of preservation and an icon of fresh air as they are only original but once. These original unmolested cars are among the rarest of rare and are rising to the top of the Corvette food chain as unrestored cars are used as guideposts for restorers, shining a light on the way vehicles were originally built. Optioned with power steering, power brakes, tilt-n-telescopic, transistorized ignition, 3.36 posi, heavy duty suspension, SS brakes, A.I.R., AM/FM radio, aluminized exhaust, tinted glass, P02 hubcaps, and F-70x15" raised white lettered tires. Most all factory correct type components.
