1969 Chevrolet Corvette
Whether you are a Corvette fanatic or not there seems to be a special place in every gear heads heart for the classic Stingray. Something about these cars always stand out and there is no doubting they have a special place in car history. A sleek body, 2 seats, and powerful motor make these classic the ultimate sports car. This beautiful 1969 Vette is an extremely nice all original classic that has been very well maintained. The only non original thing on the car is the paint job which has been redone once. That being said the 1 repaint was done in the factory Cortez Silver color. Being an early version of the C3 body style these cars came with much more chrome than there later counterparts. All of that factory chrome and stainless is cleanly mounted in place and in great condition. The glass is all in good shape as well and has a slight tint. One of the coolest things about these old vettes is the versatility that is provided by the T-tops. If it's a nice sunny day you can easily take them off and go cruising with no top but if the threat of rain is there put them in place and still go cruising. They seal up well and are very easy to use. The original rally wheels sit nicely under all four corners and are wrapped with BG Goodrich Radial T/A tires.
The drive train is all numbers matching and documented to extreme detail. Even the alternator has been shown to be original to the car. It features the 390hp 427 V8 motor that starts up well, runs great, and has no smoking issues. It wears the original chrome valve covers and air cleaner with the stock decals. Paired with the motor is the factory 4 speed manual transmission completing one of the most desirable engine/trans combos available for Corvettes. The stock brakes, suspension, and rear end have been just as well maintained with no issues.
The interior features all Black upholstery which shows little to no signs of wear/tear. The bucket seats sit nicely to each side of the original center console which houses the emergency brake, power window controls, heat knobs, and manual shifter. All of the original gauges are in place and working as is the original stereo.
This all original survivor car is extremely nice. There is nothing quite like sitting behind the wheel of a Vette, so if you missed out back in the day now is your chance!
