Gateway Classic Cars in Tampa is proud to offer this beautiful 1969 Chevrolet Corvette Convertible. Powering this gorgeous 1969 Corvette is a 300 horsepower 350 cubic inch small block V8 paired with a 4-speed manual transmission. Many people preferred the small block due to less weight over the front end making for better cornering abilities and a cooler running engine that also led to less heat making its way into the passenger compartment. 1969 would be the first year for the 350, steering column ignition switch and 8 inch wide wheels allowing for wider rubber. There are many other changes for 1969 that were considered great improvements when compared to the 1968 model year. Side louver trim, Stingray script over the louvers, operable door handles that do not require pushing the keyed lock button, reverse lights incorporated into the taillights eliminating them from beneath the bumpers, redesigned door panels, smaller steering wheel by one inch and a passenger side map pocket to name a few. This particular Stingray is only a 3 owner vehicle with each owner caring for it for over 14 years each. The beautiful white paint is set off with a black vinyl convertible top, which is in excellent condition, nice green vinyl interior, chrome bumpers and chrome deep dish wheels wrapped in Goodyear tires. This 1969 Chevrolet Corvette convertible is in great cosmetic and driving condition and is waiting for you to drive her home.
