1969 Chevrolet Corvette Coupe
The sales brochure in 1969 claimed that the car had a gauge "for everything but your blood pressure". Tachometer, ammeter, oil pressure, sweep second rally clock, fuel gauge, mileage and trip odometer, warning lights for seat belts, headlight position and door ajar. The center console houses fingertip controls for the heater, defroster, radio, vents, ashtray, cigarette lighter, shift lever and parking brake, plus an engine rating plate and softly glowing space-age fiber optics that monitor outside running lights. Color-keyed deluxe push button seat belts and inertia action shoulder belts, on the coupe, retract out of the way when not in use. From slimline bucket seats, drivers enjoy just the right feel of the new competition steering wheel with a resilient rim.
For consignment a Stingray from 1969. This car retains its factory exterior look, however, has undergone several performance modifications. For the purist though, the original equipment that came with this car from the factory comes along with the car, it is just not installed. This leaves the possibility that you could return the car to its original numbers matching state if you wish.
It's 1969 and this Corvette is bathed in Can-Am White over the fiberglass moldings that make up the body. This design utilizes some nice curves, has a retro throwback with the shark "gills" in the front quarter, and uses glorious chrome (soon to go away!). That chrome leads the way with a V shaped front bumper and surrounding grille supports, all in good condition. Stingray...now one word...is showing up in badging just above the "gills". Chrome window surrounds and side view mirrors are there too and a stainless steel rocker covering emphasizes the exaggerated coke bottle design of the sensuously curved sides. A T top which has removable white fiberglass panels works flawlessly and shows no leaks. In back a vertical rear glass has the long "flying buttress" B pillars that gently land on the rear deck where the gas filler cap is in the very center. The back of the car leaves an impression too with the split chromed bumpers, round taillights and dual exhaust exiting from the roll pan on each corner. 15 inch deep trim ringed rally wheels are on all 4 corners and all are wrapped with raised white lettered BFG Radial T/A's.
In wonderful contrast to the exterior Can-Am White we offer up a not oft seen medium bright blue vinyl covered interior. This neat blue first makes its appearance on the door panels. Neatly molded and sculpted with small striped blue broadcloth center panels the lock turn knobs, door actuator, and window crank are housed here. Slipping into the high back thin design buckets we have smooth blue bolsters and air vented tuck and roll vinyl cloth like inserts. These chairs are in excellent condition, as is the center console with its padded armrest/storage lid, with the remainder of the console moving towards the dash in molded blue plastic to cover the hump. Also, here is the shift lever handbrake and ashtray surrounded in back plastic. Moving up from the console we have the radio which is a retro styled aftermarket AM/FM system. There is a port and cable for the iPod or phone to connect which is located in the ashtray. Also, 5 gauges are lined up above in a panel that monitors everything but your blood pressure (as the brochure says!). A nice blue rally steering wheel with a trio of satin spokes which come together in the center and mount up with the blue center steering column. An angled dash houses dual deep inset round speedo and tach as well as eyeball A/C vents, and a few simple pulls. Padded blue vinyl covers the dash and dash top and is all in excellent condition. Blue carpeting is on the floors, and this wraps up a very clean presentation...take a blue bow!
A forward flip of the hood, and we see the numbers matching, original 350ci L-46 V8 block complete with A/C and power steering. This mill now sports Edelbrock aftermarket aluminum heads. Also, an Edelbrock intake manifold has a Demon 4-barrel carburetor on top. A Muncie 4-speed manual transmission is on back and this is also from the factory as per the numbers decode. On back, an AM coded 3.36 positraction rear axle is on. All very clean and corrosion free with like new hoses and wiring which goes through an MSD ignition. Hooker headers are now on and these melt into a stainless steel Flowmaster exhaust system.
Slight wear and patina are seen underneath, but overall, a solid unibody all steel undercarriage is looking great and rust free. All independent SLA forged aluminum upper and lower control arms and a steering knuckle, transverse mono leaf springs and steel stabilizer bar and spindle offset is the suspension for the front. On back full independent suspension with frame anchored differential unit. Tran
