DESCRIPTION

This 1971 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray hits all the high notes of originality, including its matching-numbers small block V8, attention grabbing paint, interesting interior, and all the right paperwork. Best of all, it's all available at a very attractive price tag.



War Bonnet Yellow is a great Corvette color. While popular, it was only available for a few years, so 'Vette people love it. That's why we're particularly excited that this special hue is not only factory-correct, but also we suspect much if it could be factory original. The headlights fit flush, all trim is complete, and the doors close with confidence - that's the kind of care you get with what's believed to be a one-owner Stingray. And we absolutely understand why someone would cherish a car like this. These earlier C3s combine the long and low American look with the flying buttress rear and Kamm-back styling of the Europeans. The earlier C3s are also for the brightwork lovers, and so it's very important that the front panel, lower rockers, rear bumper, and all the other shining panels be as comprehensive as this one. Of course, no classic Chevy sports car looks complete without the iconic Rally wheels.



The dark green interior is a great complement to the yellow on the outside. And just like the exterior, this factory correct color appears to be mostly original. Not only does this green really represent the era nicely, but also the dark hue allows the silver accents to pop on everything from the door panels to the three-spoke steering wheel. For the driver, the dual pod gauges are in front of you with a full auxiliary readout package prominently to the side. You can take off the T-tops and remove the rear window to listen to the roar of the engine singing behind you. But if you really don't like getting your hair blown around, this one even has provisions for R134a air conditioning.



Power comes from the original, matching-numbers 350 cubic inch V8. This one benefits from a heavy breathing and very correct Rochester four-barrel carburetor that has been rebuilt over the car's lifetime. As you dig deeper, you'll see plenty of signs of good maintenance, and start to realize just how much of a high-quality survivor this is (even the original air topper comes with the sale.) The V8 is mated to a stout three-speed automatic transmission to give this C3 the flexibility to intimidate through its dual exhaust or just cruise comfortably on the highway. In fact, this Stingray has plenty of great features that help both performance and luxury. This includes the power steering, four-wheel disc brakes and modern Firestone Firehawk tires for all-around good grip. This is a total package car that you won't believe how nicely the motor fires and how true it keeps out on the open road.



Complete with all the right paperwork, including the original window sticker, owner's manual, and maintenance records, this is one special surviving Corvette. You already know what kind of attention a coupe like this gets from the classic car crowds, and you already know how nicely this one is priced. So you also know how fast you need to be to grab it.
