Here's the kind of classic car story we're all on the lookout for. This 1969 Chevrolet Corvette was ordered new by its one and only owner (so far) and we even have the original dealer sheet to prove it! And today it's a low-mileage car that's highly original, right down to the numbers-matching V8. It even has the features you want, like a special color and A/C.
This car's one and only owner did exactly what we all dreamed of doing. He ordered this coupe when he was 16-years-old with a freshly minted driver's license in his pocket. And you know he appreciated a car of this caliber. It's in everything from the shine of the bumpers to over a half-century of continuous ownership. The straight and clean body panels really tell the story of a cherished car that has averaged less than 1,200 miles annually. The paint is called Monaco Orange. It's akin to Chevy's famous Hugger Orange, but since that wasn't technically on the order books for the Stingray, this is a single-year name. Not only is the color special but also the presentation. The paint is largely the original application with just touch-ups along the way. So while it would be easy to give it a high-quality respray, we also know just how much the Corvette community cherishes this kind of originality.
The black interior is a great color against the orange. So it's a fine reason to go cruising with the T-tops out. This has received the same level of care and respect as the exterior, and so if anything was replaced along the way it was done with the correct components. That's why you have the right little details, like the Delco AM/FM radio. It's loaded with the best features, like cold-blowing air conditioning, power windows, and leather upholstery. And the high-back bucket seats, tilt/telescopic steering wheel, and full gauge package makes for the kind of driver's car that you'll find irresistible to add to the low odometer.
Under the hood is the number-matching V8. The 350 cubic-inch small block is topped with a Rochester four-barrel carburetor for an original-style setup. It's clean and correct with the right investments in maintenance along the way - including a newer vacuum system. And the way this motor fires up, idles, and runs with a healthy feeling reaffirms a lifetime of proper care. Power steering and the three-speed automatic transmission are ideal for a car that wants to go everywhere. And the fully independent suspension and four-wheel power disc brakes are exactly what you want for the back roads.
The sale comes complete with the original dealer order form and maintenance records so that you can help tell this car's unique tale. We're all looking for a one-owner cherished survivor, and if you're quick enough to grab this deal, your life-long search will be over. Call today!!!
