Car history:
For 1971, only 1,949 LT-1 models were produced, and only 3,706 Corvettes were built in War Bonnet Yellow. Trim tag reads: Trim 417 (Saddle interior), Paint 989 (War Bonnet Yellow), This is a matching numbers LT-1. The engine block says 111202 V022OCGZ (From what I understand its the last 6 digits on the block that need to match the last 6 of the VIN, and in this case they do) and the VIN is 194371S111202. The last 3 digits (CGZ) on the block number pad do appear a bit askew compared to the other digits, but the factory did do re-stamps at times. In any case, I bought the car as a LT-1 and it has the requisite components that a LT-1 should have, including: 160 MPH speedometer, 7000 RPM redline tachometer, Oil pressure gauge, 330 hp/350 lb ft torque badge on center console, Correct LT-1 coded Holley carburetor (3989021), Correct LT-1 coded high-rise aluminum intake (3959594), Finned aluminum valve covers, Big block hood that was used on LT-1s, It does not have pw, ps and A/C as this is a pure performance car. Most importantlythe high compression LT-1 engine!
The engine is a freshly rebuilt LT-1 350 cubic inch with 330 horsepower; it doesnt use oil or blow smoke. The engine roars to life and then lopes and rumbles just like it should at idle (thanks to the solid lifters and hi-performance cam) yet sounds like its ready to snarl. When you stab the accelerator she absolutely SCREAMS, so be prepared to shift immediately as the engine instantly revs to redline. Its spooky fast! Factory advertised 0-60 in only 5.6 seconds! The ignition shielding is also intact, and engine bay is clean and nicely detailed.
The 4-speed transmission works like it should, the gears and synchros are in great working order, and as per the factory design, the clutch must be disengaged before engine will crank over. The clutch works perfectly as well.
Original Astro Ventilation glass in good condition, other than the drivers side near the bottom of the glass does have some vertical scratches, but Id guess they would mostly polish out. Car is also equipped with the optional pop out rear window. Frame looks ok and any light surface rust was recently cleaned, painted and detailed. There is some rust visible below the VIN tag on the drivers side windshield post. The Corvette restoration shop said its very common and it wont hurt anything and to simply leave it alone.
Paint shines well and body/panels are smooth and w/o ripples or waves evident. Paint is somewhat recent (perhaps in the last 3 or 4 years) and remains in very good condition, but does of course have some minor flaws here and there, as any used car that gets driven would. Door gaps and other panel gaps are very good.
Regarding the chrome, trim and bright work; the front bumper has a small indentation on the passengers side (likely someone nudged something when parking) but its subtle and difficult to notice, and should be an easy repair if someone chose. There is a small area on top of the right side rear bumper where the chrome is a bit thin, but casual observers wouldnt likely notice. The front grill and trim appear to be in good shape, but on close inspection do show mild wear. Other bright trim, such as around windshield, appears good.
The interior is very presentable with freshly installed seat covers. The dash pad is good, not warped or cracked. The door panels dont appear to be original, rather just covers. All gauges work (except clock) but some of the switches/gauges/dials/fascias show some signs of mild wear/age, as should be expected from a car of this era. The hard plastic portion of the seatbacks is cracked in some places, but those are easily replaceable, and since nobody ever sees them, it certainly wouldnt need to be a priority. The bottom of the battery tray has been damaged, likely by someone dropping the corner of a battery into the cavity too abruptly. The top corner of the drivers side windshield has some damaged interior trim due to someone at sometime latching down the T-Tops incorrectly, but its merely visual and doesnt impact the functionally of the T-Tops, and of course is only visible with the T-Tops off. Speaking of the T-Tops, the covers are missing. The interior carpets are good, they are not heavily worn or stained and are in generally good shape. Most of the weather stripping is either new in the last few years or what isnt new is still in good condition. Fiber-optics work (but do appear a bit faint). The vacuum operated headlights and windshield wiper cover work great, as well as all gauge/accessory and outside running lights. Aftermarket AM/FM stereo cassette is installed and works.
Tires are newer 215 70R Dunlops on original 15x7 inch slotted rally wheels. Wheels are in good shape but there are a few scrapes on one or two of the trim rings that are only noticeable upon closer viewing. Car tracks straight down the road with good alignment and brakes work perfectly.
Since Ive had the car Ive maintained it extremely well, in fact Ive had things either fixed or replaced that didnt need to be. Below is a list of the work that has been done by Corvette specialists:
4 New shock absorbers
Various suspension bushings
New stainless rear brake calipers
New master brake cylinder
Rotors turned
New Delco Alternator
New rear main seal
New oil pan gaskets
New valve cover gaskets
All new plugs and wires
New battery
New side mirror
Pop up headlight system adjusted
Windshield wiper cover made operable
All fluids have been changed
Car has spare tire and jack, and owners manual, as well as documentation for the work mentioned above. Odometer reads 13,778, but I'd guess this represents 113,778. January 2, 2008.
