Documentation: Copy of dealer bill of sale, Copy of tank sticker, Letter from original owners wife, Pictures from original owners wife from '68-'70, NCRS shipping data report.
History: In 1968, the original owner purchased this '69 brand new from Curtis Chevrolet in Washington, DC. (This is an early production car). After returning from Vietnam, he learned that his '57 Corvette was stolen. His dad was head of the service department at Curtis Chevrolet and purchased this '69 as a replacement for the stolen '57. Racing was the original owner's true passion. He was successful racing the car in the NHRA and IHRA circuit. The car was sponsored by Quicksilver RacEngines. After a few years, he became interested in NASCAR. From here, he sold the Vette to pursue stock car racing.
Unfortunately, several years later the original owner was tragically killed while racing his NASCAR at Talladega Speedway. It was a tragic loss for his friends and family.
The second owner was in the military and was often transferred around the country. He kept the Vette just as it was when he purchased it. He drove it for a few years, and then parked it because of the growth of his family and other interest. Around 1999-2000, he was getting transferred oversees and the Vette had to be sold. We found it in our local newspaper, and went to see the car. (Oddly enough, it was less than 3 miles away from our home).
After we purchased the Vette, we immediately discovered its unique history. We spent a lot of time tracking down the original owner. Through numerous phone calls and emails we were in contact with his wife. She has been very helpful in unearthing the cars race history. She wrote us several times and gave us lots of old photos.
Condition: Being that it is a low mileage car, it had a no-hit body and only one repaint. We have pictures of the car with the original paint. Over the last few years we've done a body on restoration while keeping the car original and correct. The car still has the original glass including the windshield. Restoration includes front and rear suspension bushings, ball joints, U joints stainless brakes, aluminized exhaust, heater core, fuel tank, chrome bumpers, Al Knox interior, carpet and pad, seat buns and seat covers, and Al Knox canvas top. The car runs and drives well. It sounds very strong and shifts nicely. It does not over heat. The headlights and wiper door work well. It stops well and straight.
Overall the car presents itself very well. It is hard to find a real '69 L-71 these days in this condition with this documentation and history. When considering the prices of '67 L-71s the '69s are sure to appreciate. BiN $68,000. August 2016. BiN $63,000 (Ended) on September 23, 2016. BiN $59,500 (RnM) on October 6, 2016.
