The Chevrolet Corvette (C3) was a sports car that was produced by Chevrolet for the 1968 through 1982 model years. "Stingray" script nameplates appeared on front fenders, now one word, in contrast to the "Sting Ray” name used previously.
Why This Car Is Special
Car and Driver magazine wrote in October 1968, "The small-engine Corvettes are marginally fast and extraordinarily civilized. The large-engine Corvettes are extraordinarily fast and marginally civilized.” So is the 1969 Chevrolet Corvette 427 L36 Convertible we have here at Skyway Classics. It has that long sleek look and the power to back up the look.
The 427cubic inch L36 V8 is this car's original, matching-numbers engine and makes a substantial 390 horsepower and shifts through a 4-speed transmission. With endless reserves of torque and an attitude that practically invites you to plant your foot on the floor, it's a blast to drive.
Under the hood you will find the numbers-matching L36 427 cubic inch V8 with 390 horse that looks as it did from the factory. Everything appears correct, including the chrome valve covers, aluminum intake, Quadrajet Carb, and stickers on the chrome air cleaner. It's a clean engine bay and has a lot of factory original hoses and clamps.
It rides on Rally wheels with BF Goodrich tires and the car rides and handles well with a traditional Corvette look.
The mostly original interior continues to look quite nice. It does have later model black bucket seats. It does have black carpets and the door panels, three-spoke wheel, 4-speed gearshift, the original gauge package with the large speedo and tach, full auxiliary readout package, heat/defrost controls, and just below the AM/FM radio.
Our 1969 Corvette look great in a burnished bronze color scheme that had a recent repaint, it should be no surprise that it remains in great condition. The C3s are considered by some as the best looking of the bunch with their chrome bumpers and hidden windshield wipers, and this one is no exceptions.
The 1969 Corvette L36 Convertible we have here at Skyway Classics is a great driver and a fun convertible to ride and drive and enjoy, plus it is a big block 427 L36 Corvette, who could ask for more.
