With distinct factory-correct colors, original V8 power, and the control of a four-speed manual transmission, this 1969 Chevrolet Corvette is a great standout classic. And as you look closer to the amount of time and work invested in keeping it looking this good, you soon realize its desirability is in the details.
Cortez Silver is one of the brightest and most distinct metallic colors offered on the Stingray, and it was only available for two years. So that's why they spent plenty of time and money getting the recent professional respray looking so good. And great paint needs a great canvas. So they also paid attention to getting the body panels quite crisp with the shark-like pointed nose, flush-fitting headlight doors, and the flying buttress rear. Plus, on a restoration of this caliber, you get all the right details. The bumpers are freshly re-chromed; the Rally wheels shine brightly; and not even a single Stingray badge is out of place.
The interior highlights why this one is a particularly great driver's machine. The factory-correct red has an aggressive look that's fantastic against the exterior silver. And they invested heavily during the restoration to make sure that the seats, carpeting, door panels, dash, and much more feel bright and fresh. This one shows off some nice premium features for the time like power windows. Plus, there are provisions for options like the AM/FM stereo and air conditioning. And there's an unmatched feeling as you grab the three spoke steering wheel, gaze at the large speedo and tach just beyond that, and see your full auxiliary gauge panel at eye-level. And this experience only gets better with the wind running through your hair. That's why it's great to not only have the T-tops, but also the removable rear window to allow this coupe to give you a convertible-like experience.
The engine is the original matching numbers L46 350 cubic-inch V8 – which means better compression and upgraded power. This car was restored less than 5,500 miles ago, and so It remains looking great in the engine bay with a very original style. You can tell from the crispness of the details and the overall tidy presentation that plenty of attention was paid here. And as you look at the undercarriage photos, the freshness of the components continues. That also tells you this classic was restored to feel solid out on the road. And that's a good thing, because not only do you have a higher-power motor, but you also get the best control with a four-speed manual transmission. Plus, C3s are terrific handlers with a fully-independent suspension, power steering, and four-wheel disc brakes.
The sale comes with build receipts, owner's manual, and NCRS historical documentation. This is truly a cut-above coupe that's done the way you want it, and it's ready to run right now. Don't miss out, call today!
