Streetside Classics - Nashville
6000 Reliance Dr
This is a fantastically restored 1969 Chevrolet Corvette with a full blue package, four-on-the-floor, and the ultra-desirable 427ci V8 with Tri-Power. So you can dig into all the details, but you already know this is the big block you want in your garage.
The full frame-off restoration on this one was completed less than two years ago. So that ultra-crisp Stingray you see in the pictures is just as striking in-person. This was born a Lemans Blue coupe. So if the color is going to be named after such a famous race circuit, then you better believe they took their time respraying it for this big block power machine. A quality restoration also means getting the details right with doors that close with confidence, headlights that shut flush, new weather stripping, and an overall look you can drive with pride. Brightwork on these were used in all the right places. Sometimes it's bold, like on the shark-like pointed front end and the artful two-piece rear bumper. Other places are subtler, like the trim within the big block hood. In total, it delivers a car with a terrific sense of classic style, right down to those redline tires.
Inside, the sea of blue continues. From the texture of the bucket seats to the feeling of the carpeting, this is the kind of investment that makes you feel like you're in a time warp to 1969. Even the correct AM/FM radio is cranking out the tunes! The steering wheel has that instant grippy feel, and it gives you a nice view of the large speedo and tach directly in front. Plus, all your auxiliary readouts are at eye-level to remind you Chevy built this for real drivers. You're going to see more of how they had the right eye for details during the restoration in features like the date-coded seatbelts and the working clock. And because this looks so great inside, you'll love taking the T-tops out and sharing this one with the world. Also don't forget, this is a year where the rear window also is removable to deliver a true wind-in-your-hair driving experience whenever you want.
The 427 cubic-inch V8 has the kind of big block power that make us weak in the knees, and it has true royalty status when there's a triple set of Holley dual-barrel carburetors on top for a proper Tri-Power setup. You know you'll be lifting the hood on this one everywhere you park, and so the engine bay was restored for showing off. Chevy people know to gravitate towards the Tri Power's bright triangle air topper, and everyone else will be drawn in by a setup so clean it looks factory fresh. Not only does the engine bay look award-worthy, but also they took the time to have date-correct components, like the carbs, intake, exhaust, starter, overflow tank, and more. While all of it looks terrific, you also know this car was made for driving. The suspension received plenty of attention during the restoration, even the factory shocks were rebuilt. It gives you the full confidence to take control of the four-speed manual transmission and full open up this big block power. And because the Corvette was a superior classic sports machine, with a fully independent suspension and four-wheel disc brakes, it still has great moves on the road today.
The sale comes with nice paperwork, including the owner's manual, a reproduction window sticker, a reproduction buildsheet, and photos documenting the big investment in the total restoration. So the only way this all-blue big block Tri-power machine will leave you feeling blue is if you miss this deal. Call today!!!
