Car history:
2) When the original owner was in the showroom picking out this 1970 Chevrolet Corvette coupe, he checked a lot of boxes on the options list. From there, it has been upgraded with a period-correct LS5 454 and a 4-speed, adding performance without reducing its comfort. This is a heck of a lot of car for the money!
Painted about seven years ago, this Corvette is in excellent condition. They kept the original code 974 Monza Red color (why wouldn't you) but restored it to better-than-new condition, cloaking the dramatic Corvette curves in the most traditional of Corvette colors: bright red. They spent a lot of time and effort on the fiberglass, getting all the gaps to line up just so, making sure the hood fit flush, and generally smoothing all the surfaces with far more care than the factory could afford. The result is a great shine and eyeball-searing color that glows in the sunlight and shows no sign of stress cracks anywhere on the body. The delicate chrome bumpers have been refinished and fitted snugly against the fiberglass, and new headlight door actuators were installed so the headlights snap to attention every time the switch is pulled. There's fresh date-code-correct glass with new weather-stripping, which reflects the owner's obsession with making it as correct as possible. Bright badges and fresh taillight lenses add to the sharp look. Go ahead, just try to find a prettier one!
The code 418 Saddle vinyl bucket seat interior is a welcome change from all the black we see in these cars, and it's an excellent choice for a car that's going to see a lot of sun. New seat covers, fresh door panels, and correct carpets with the right weave and nap have been fitted, and as I mentioned, it's loaded with options. There is, of course, A/C, but you'll also find a tilt steering column, power brakes, and power steering, all of which make this car a true pleasure to drive. All the gauges, including the clock, work properly, and the factory 4-speed snaps through the gates courtesy of the original shifter. The lone non-stock part is a digital AM/FM/cassette radio in the dash, and the trick fiber-optic indicators on the console are fully operational. You can see that there's a lot invested in getting this car right.
The engine is a period-correct factory replacement LS5 454 cubic inch V8. It's probably the best choice if you want a cruiser, thanks to a hydraulic cam and street-friendly manners. With 390 horsepower on tap, the LS5 runs beautifully with a smooth idle and a mountain of torque available at virtually any speed. It has a long list of factory-correct parts, including a set of Paragon exhaust manifolds and a stainless steel Magnaflow exhaust system underneath. Hoses are new and it has a fresh tune-up, so it's 100 per cent ready to rumble. The brakes have been rebuilt with stainless steel calipers, and as a lifelong southern car, there's exactly zero rust on the frame in any of the usual trouble spots. The rear wheel bearings, clutch, flywheel, and shocks are all new, so it rides and handles like it should. Bright Rally wheels were standard-issue, and wear fat BFGoodrich redline radials.
This beautifully finished Corvette is exactly what you want: fully sorted, awesome to look at, comfortable to drive, and packing big block power. This is the way Corvettes were meant to be. 68,319 miles from the odometer. BiN $54,995 (Ended) on March 27, 2018.
1) Car runs and drives excellent, survivor!! Assume the numbers do not match, I do not know so do not ask! I was told that all numbers match, except the engine is a factory replacement. I feel that the mileage is actual given the condition; the car has been in the family for 18+ years!!
Update 11-19: The engine block is the correct casting number and date code for 1970 Corvette we are told. The VIN Pad on the passenger side of the block is blank, due to what we believe was decking of the engine block, thus making it the original engine. December 2007.
