Sunnyside Chevrolet of Elyria, Ohio in conjunction with Greg's Sports, Classic, & Muscle is proud to offer for sale this beautiful 1969 Corvette Roadster.
Yes, this is a project car, and yes, we rarely have or offer project cars but it's kinda like A League of Their Own where we can't lay off the high fast ones. We are offered tons of projects and we buy next to none. This one is different. This one was with the same owner since 1979!!! It resided in Perrysburg with Gene from 79 until we bought it from him.
The good- numbers matching ORIGINAL 350/350 4- speed car. The engine will need rebuilt it does not run and we have inspected it and believe it to be an easy rebuild. The paint code is 984 Daytona Yellow and the car has a very respectable coat of paint on it right now as the photos show. You will also notice vintage paint stipes on the car that are pure 70's/80's cool. The CANIGO 2 on the hood is representative of the question Gene's daughter always asked when Gene was going out for a rip in the Ole Vette. Gene drove the car until about 10 years ago when it just got parked. Our belief is that with an engine rebuild, a set of seat covers and carpet, go through the brakes and exhaust you'd have one nice 69 roadster driver.
Another reason we could not leave the car is how good the frame is. While it may be surface rusty we found no areas that brought us any type of concern- all the typical rust issues in 69 Vette frames check out well in this car. We have the top and top bows and the top is old and worn. We also have a set of 4 brake calipers that Gene bought years ago that are still in the boxes but will most likely need gone through due to age. Looks to us like all the fiberglass is original to the car other than the hood. The original flat hood is no longer with the car. Check out the Uniroyal Tiger Paws all the way around- time capsule stuff.
If you are looking for a Vette Roadster project we believe this one to be a great starting point. Don't save a couple of grand to buy a car that's not numbers matching or of a questionable past or with a rusty frame- start with good and turn it into great and you will be glad down the road you did.
There is only one reason we are not doing this car for our own- Time. Never Enough.
We have a lot of pictures of the underside and more on this car and if you would like to see them just ask and we will email you a link.
Get it to be a driver, turn it into a show car, stuff an LS6 in the engine compartment- The choice is yours once you make it yours.
We stand behind our thoughts on this car by offering our travel expenses guarantee- come see the car and if we have materially misrepresented its condition we will gladly pay half of your travel expenses up to $500.00- this offer had been in place since we sold our first classic and we haven't paid the money yet…. We pride ourselves on having good cars and representing them properly.
