Car history:
2) Finding a Corvette you can drive and enjoy is sometimes easier said than done. So many have been cut, hacked, or just abused that finding a tight, clean, matching-numbers C3 with no needs can be daunting. But this Brands Hatch Green '71 roadster is the right car at the right price, including a strong-running 350, a 4-speed transmission, factory A/C, and a gorgeous interior.
Restored a few years ago, this one shows only minor signs of being driven, which means that someone was absolutely fanatical about maintenance, because Corvettes are made to be driven. The bodywork was nicely done, not so perfect you're afraid to touch it, but nice enough to get a second or third envious glance from the guy in the Honda next to you at the red light. There are a few touch-ups but overall this one grabs everyone's attention in a big way. Gaps are good all around, and if you prefer the chrome bumpers, the '71s are a great choice. While some claim that there's nothing like a red Corvette, the dark green on this one looks right and gives it an understated look that doesn't deny what it is, but suggests that there's more to it than just brute force. Speaking of chrome, everything is nicely finished and polished, including the optional trunk rack on the back, which always looks cool.
Originally filled with a code 423 dark green vinyl interior, this 'Vette now sports a stunning code 417 Saddle interior that is in excellent condition with a lot of new equipment. The seat covers offer textured inserts that are both grippy and comfortable if you're cruising in the sun, and the center console puts most of the secondary controls at your fingertips. The original gauges are fully functional and have crisp markings and clear lenses, while a Kenwood AM/FM/cassette stereo has been fitted in the center stack. The chrome shifter makes a bold statement, and Chevy was justifiably proud of the Corvette's credentials (and knew their buyers would be, too) and proudly spelled out the engine specs on a plaque mounted on the center console. 1971 was also the final year for the fiber-optic light monitoring system, which most first-time owners will think is just about the coolest thing they've ever seen. Options include working factory A/C, a tilt steering column, and power steering and brakes. There's also a new tan vinyl convertible top that stows so easily, plus an optional black vinyl hardtop that's a welcome addition.
The original 350 cubic inch engine was rebuilt at the time the car was restored, and today runs as well as any small block Chevy we've featured. New Chevy Orange paint was applied to the block while it was apart, and simple valve covers give it a cool retro look that's pure Corvette. The engine bay is pretty clean, suggesting that this car has led a good life in a dry climate, and there's no sign of rust anywhere on the running gear. The original exhaust manifolds feed a newer dual exhaust system, and someone has thoughtfully added some heat shielding on the floors to help control temperatures inside. And nothing makes a Corvette sing like a 4-speed gearbox, which offers positive shifts and progressive clutch take up, and it rolls on a set of original Rally wheels inside 235/60/15 white-letter radials. 31 098 miles. $34,995 (Ended) on June 7, 2017.
1) Finished in Brands Hatch green with saddle tan interior, this car is pleasing to the eyes and a true pleasure to drive. This car sports the original numbers matching 350/270HP engine along with an array of factory options. Auxillary Hardtop with optional Vinyl covering (one of 832 produced), Tan soft top, Air conditioning,
Power steering, Tilt-telescopic steering wheel, Power 4 wheel disc brakes,
Kenwood cassette stereo, Shoulder belts, Reverse lights, Rally Wheels / Goodyear Eagle radial tires, Luggage rack, Fiber optic lighting (last year offered on the Corvette!). The exterior showcases a very nice original body with a recent professional repaint of the correct Brands Hatch green finish. Upon close inspection, we consider the paint and body to be very good to excellent. The body gaps are correct throughout the car. The fenderwells are straight and true as well. This has always been a dry climate example, a high quality driver. The exteriors chrome and brightwork is in exceptional condition. The bumper chrome is polished and clean front to back as are the rocker panel sill plates, front grilles, exhaust bezels, emblems, side grilles, and mirrors. The headlight bulbs are operational, however the vacuum actuators are in need of replacement for the lids to operate correctly. The windshield wiper door is all intact, including the 3-piece upper trim. The mechanism operates intermittently and is in need of attention. The canvas soft top is in very good to excellent condition. The back plastic glass shows fading. The rubber seals up well throughout. The ultra-rare auxillary vinyl hardtop is very nice. Of more than 2,600 optional hardtops produced, less than 850 were vinyl covered. The saddle headliner is clean and the soft rubber seals are in good condition. It fastens securely in place with the factory handles. The interior has been restored from the original green to saddle tan. You can see evidence of this color change is some out of the way areas. The fiber optics are in good condition as is the console, seating, and carpeting. The emergency brake is functional and the auxillary headlight/vacuum controls are in place as well. The tilt-telescopic steering wheel operates correctly and the horn blows. The clock is function as are the remaining factory gauges with exception of the tachometer. It is in need of a tachometer cable replacement to work. The distributor has the provision for this. The rear storage comparments are exceptionally nice. The frames are intact and they open and close correctly. The courtesy lighting is functional throughout the car. The numbers matching 350 c.i. engine displays the correct VIN stamping and date code on the engine pad. The distributor ignition shielding is in place as is the correct breather. The inner fender and engine firewall lips are straight and true. The original ram horn manifolds sends the exhaust to a recently replaced exhaust system. The engine runs strong and the Muncie 4-speed manual transmission shifts with precision through each gear. The reverse lock-out is functional as well. Some fading in the rear plastic window on the soft top. Optional reverse light lenses, clean bumper chrome, and correct exhaust bezels/tips and license plate bezel. 27,194 miles from the odometer. Colors from the trim plate. Built date is E04. Motor suffix code is V1201CJL. November 5, 2008.
