800 Derita Road, Ste. A
This 1969 Chevrolet Corvette Convertible is an all-around well-done car. The numbers matching V8 is a strong-runner that also has the sleek look of a silver bullet. And while we all love the wind-in-your-hair experience, this one also has an attractive color-matched hardtop.
Cortez Silver is one of the brightest and most distinct metallic colors offered on the Stingray, and it was only available for two years. So it's great to see the factory-correct hue really drawing attention with its shine. That's because there was an investment in a quality respray later in life. Also, keen eyes will notice that the front fender vents are the sleeker style from a few years later in the C3's timeline. Add in well-fitting panels, and the result is a sunshine-friendly convertible that radiates with pride in the sunlight. Nice chrome bumpers and proper Rally wheels also add to the shine and sophistication of this Stingray.
This has a color-matched hardtop that gives it a distinct coupe-like profile. Of course, one of the big reasons for owning a classic convertible is to be open to the world. So we're glad to see the black interior. It looks good against the silver, and even goes with the 1969 car's darker grille. There are even nice touches like the desirable headrests and custom door panels. There's an unmatched feeling as you grab the three spoke steering wheel, gaze at the large speedo and tach directly in front, and see your full auxiliary gauge panel at eye-level. It makes for a package that begs you to get in and drive.
The engine is the numbers-matching 350 cubic-inch V8. It looks good with the bold orange block, and plenty of polish from the air grabber, valve covers, and distributor shield. It's also got the right pieces you want - everything from a four-barrel carburetor to an upgraded aluminum radiator w/electric fans. The V8 fires up readily, runs strong, and the three-speed automatic transmission shifts smoothly. So it really gives you the feeling of a classic made for driving. Plus, with power steering, fully independent suspension, and four-wheel power disc brakes makes this an exciting anytime classic.
Sleek looks, drop-top fun, and a strong driving character are a recipe for a terrific Corvette. So you know you don't want to miss this Stingray. Call now!
