For Sale: 1969 Chevrolet Corvette in Grand Rapids, Michigan


Vehicle Description

See 100 photos and video on main website: Garage Kept Motors. This is true 1969 triple black 427ci/390hp Corvette Convertible. The car was finished to be an L88 tribute, but with an installed radio and working heat as you know a true L88 didn't have. It has the correct hood, red spark plug wires, badging, and small air cleaner. The car came from Omaha, NE to Michigan in the late 80's and has been here ever since. It had a frame off restoration in 1990 and has only 3,000 miles put on it since. The body was stripped all the way down to the fiberglas and repainted. The convertible top was replaced with a brand new one, original trans was rebuilt and mated to a Hurst super shifter, rear end was rebuilt with 3:73 gears, entire interior was replaced with new, and seat covers/headrests replaced with leather. All the suspension is new and attached to a solid (never hit) frame. See photos. The GM block is a stamped as #3963512 dated L-15-9, the heads are 3919840 high performance dated E-6-9, the Edlebrock Torker intake has a Holly Carb on top with a Mallory Tach drive distributor, and L-88 camshaft by Crane cams and solid lifters. The block is .030 over with 12:1 compression. The engine was built by Performance Engineering and ran on the dyno with 550hp at 7000rpm. We have the paperwork from Performance Engineering dated 8/31/1990. From 1990 to 1995 the car was driven 3000 miles, it was put in storage and not driven since then until this year. Since the owner wanted it to be safe to drive they put all new 4 redline BF Goodrich radial tires on it, replaced all four calipers, brake hoses, and a master cylinder. To finish it off, a wheel alignment was done and drives like new again, the way it should! The spark plugs & wires, and mufflers were also replaced. Call or e-mail if interested, or to make a reasonable offer. Thank you for looking.
