1969 Chevrolet Corvette
STK 2992 1969 Chevrolet Corvette
This 3-owner 1969 Corvette 'Stingray' roadster is said to be matching numbers through out. Except for a repaint 30+ years ago and some engine/suspension upgrades, it is original. It is not a show car, but a very solid driver. The owner believes that the roadster has never been in a fight - all of the gaps are true and all of the body components appear to be original. The frame and birdcage are excellent. The current owner, a senior, has had this car for over 25 years (garaged). The single-stage Fathom Green repaint (1988) is starting to show dulling on hood and trunk. The black leather interior is in good condition - dash and door cards are very good, all gauges (excp. clock) work including the mechanical tach and the factory AM/FM radio still plays. Headlight/wiper vacuum features work fine using the manual pulls. The canvas top is 'original 1969' and needs replaced, as do the rubber seals. The folding top frame is fine and rust-free. Under the hood, the owner states is the factory 350 /300hp that has been massaged, but runs fine on unleaded 93 octane. It was professionally built some 20,000 miles ago - bored .030 over, 10:1 pistons, 3-angle valve grind w/hardened valve seats, Schneider hydraulic flat tappet cam (350/350hp specs), Edelbrock Performer dual plane intake, 600CFM Holley and Hedman tube headers. (Included in the sale are original engine components including the intake manifold, Rochester QuadraJet carb and rams-horn exhaust manifolds.) The distributor is the factory points/condenser unit w/gear-drive tach. This is a nice, old-school small-block that is right. The motor is backed by the factory 4-speed wide-ratio trans w/Muncie shifter and stock 3.23:1 posi-traction differential. Clutch is very smooth and all u-joints have been replaced. The transmission and differential have been serviced, but have not required any repairs other than a trans rear seal a few years back. The Corvette has power steering and manual disc brakes. All brake calipers are stainless sleeved with new hoses/master cylinder and the suspension/sway bars have polyurethane bushings. Independent rear suspension has been upgraded with a new transverse steel leaf spring, new sway bar and camber-adjustable tie rods. New 225x70x15 Firestone Destination LE3 radials (very similar in appearance to the original F70x15 Firestone Wide-Ovals) are mounted on factory 15”x 8” GM Rally wheels with GM centers and after-market trim rings. You can buy a much newer 'Vette for the same money. It will however be worth less next year unlike this '69 4-speed Stingray roadster. If you are looking for a trailer queen, look elsewhere. If you want a classic C3 roadster that runs, come take a look - you will not be disappointed. ALL VEHICLES SOLD “AS IS”.
