800 Derita Road, Ste. A
This 1971 Chevrolet Corvette is a numbers-matching car, but even from the first impression, you can tell there's something a bit more going on here than just stock. The full package takes the classic you love and adds some cool details to create a car that's both unique and powerful. Best of all, you get it for a value price.
There is something that immediately catches your eye on this car. Corvette fans know that 1971 was still in the chrome front-end years, but this one was updated to the later color-matched style. The front fenders were updated, too. This retains the chrome rear, and so it's similar to the '73 car's exclusive style. Except there are still classic details, like the Corvette racing flag badge leading the way. It makes for a nice talking piece that doesn't stray from the full Stingray family line. After all, everyone loves a Corvette finished in red. And this also will always have the best C3 pieces, like the long and pointed front end, beautifully formed fenders, and rear styling that has both flying buttresses and an integrated rear spoiler.
The black interior looks good against the red. It's a driver-oriented environment with bucket seats, a center console, and a grippy sports steering wheel. There are good features like power windows, a tilt/telescopic steering column, and upgraded auxiliary readouts under the dash. Plus, you also have provisions for an upgraded radio and factory air conditioning (they will need servicing to fully function again.) The T-tops come out, and this was one of the last years for the removable rear window that gives you a convertible-like breeze through the interior. Don't forget that Chevy's 1973 update eliminated the removable rear window. So you have a unique situation where this one looks like the '73 with the color-matched front end, but you still get the full wind-in-your-hair experience whenever you want.
Under the hood is the numbers-matching 350 cubic-inch V8. It has been given some added investment in flair with the bright air grabber and attractive valve covers with cursive Corvette script. But really, the best money spent was on added performance. This has a new Edelbrock four-barrel carburetor, an Edelbrock Performer RPM intake, and headers feeding the stainless dual exhaust. The motor starts eagerly, idles nicely, and runs well. Plus, the TH400 three-speed automatic is also the numbers-matching transmission. It's a stout unit that also shifts smoothly. The power steering, four-wheel power disc brakes, and fully independent sports suspension make it easy to enjoy this Corvette to the fullest.
Complete with owner's manual, this is a bright red Stingray with a unique style and an attractive price. So you know it's a classic that won't stay here long. Call now!
