1969 Chevrolet Corvette

1969 Corvette Stingray, numbers matching, L46 350/350 with very rare factory installed side-pipes. 1969 is the only year the C3 Corvette offered the side mounted exhaust as an option. 4,355 were produced, and about 40% of that year were convertibles...meaning there are less than 2,000 factory side-pipe cars ever made.
This car is currently undergoing a frame on restoration, runs and drives, but circumstances have caused a need for sale. Drive train and body panels are all numbers matching, including the very rare rear valance (see pics) proving the factory side-pipe install.
This was intended to be a beautiful, raw, driving machine. No power steering, no tilt steering wheel, no power brakes, no A/C...but...rebuilt engine that was ported and polished, the original recored big block radiator and Hurst stock style shifter allows you to easily...and I mean easily...keep up with modern cars. The side pipes not only look incredible, but let the world know you have arrived, quickly.

Sad to see it go because this is, and will be, one amazing machine. The pinnacle year of the C3 Corvette is 1969. With the C3 starting to be appreciated more and more each day by the collectors of the world, this is an investment you can drive while it appreciates in value.
