This 1971 Chevrolet Corvette offers upgraded ZZ4 V8 power, a leather interior, and a very cool custom two-tone appearance. So if you were looking for a Stingray of distinction, it's time to take a look at this coupe.
The paint sets an interesting tone for this coupe. If the two-tone looks vaguely familiar, it's because it resembles the silver and charcoal option available in the last couple of years of the C3. These Bowling Green cars didn't look like this Stingray. They didn't have the pointed chrome front bumper, shining two-piece rear bumper, and flying buttress style that this one showcases. Really, this one is a special case of bringing together two of the best parts of the C3, the earlier body style and the later more creative colors combo. So it's undoubtedly going to get you kudos from Corvette people. And the full execution is far more intricate than what you got from the factory. Not only is there pinstriping following all the sporty curves of the profile, but also the flat rear is featured more prominently thanks to the darker gray insert. And the two-tone also really draws attention to the addition of the big block hood.
If the special exterior paint was allowed to add one more darker tone, it would likely be black. So that just gives you even more reason to take out the T-tops and share the black leather interior with the world. Corvettes are built around the driver. You have high-back bucket seats and a three-spoke sports steering wheel on a tilt column. The large speedo and tach are directly in front of you, and all your essential gauges are to the side at eye level. And don't forget that another great reason to have a Stingray like this is that this has the removable rear window. So you can have a convertible-like breeze through the car while still have the extra rigidity and safety of a coupe.
There's a small block V8 in the engine bay, but this one absolutely earns its big block hood. That's because this has serious power thanks to the ZZ4 crate motor. Plus, you have go-fast goodies like aluminum heads, a Holley four-barrel carburetor, Chevy performance intake, MSD ignition, and long tube headers that add power while adding an upgraded rumble to the dual exhaust. All this upgraded power and torque is handled by the strong and smooth TH400 three-speed automatic transmission. Add in power steering, four-wheel power disc brakes, and the Corvette's fully-independent sports suspension, and this one reminds you what a classic C3 is a great driver's car.
This Stingray has great custom touches, but it never strays from the Chevy family. That makes it thoughtful interesting, and memorable. So don't miss your chance at a terrific package, call today!
