1969 Chevrolet Corvette Roadster

For sale in our Chicago showroom is this stylish 1969 Chevrolet Corvette Roadster. In 1969 there were three body styles to the Corvette; the coupe, the convertible, and the roadster. Most are familiar with the first two, but the roadster was a bit of a rare vehicle. It is essentially a hardtop convertible, but with no installed soft top. Because of this, you have all the benefits of a convertible, but with the interior space and structural rigidity of a coupe. This particular roadster is powered by a modified 370 CID small block Chevrolet engine producing around 460hp and just about 430ft-lb or torque. The car was originally owned by a Chevrolet dealer as a demonstration car in Colorado, and was rebuilt in 1993 by that same dealer. Originally, the car was a blue exterior with blue interior, 350 CID rated at 300hp, factory air, and 3.26 rear gears. When the dealer had the car rebuilt, the started with the engine by sending it to a local shop to have them build it into the monster that it is today. The exterior was resprayed a pair of Chrysler colors split by custom pinstriping. During all of the bodywork, the headlights were shaved from the top of the front clip, and square headlights were installed in the lower grille. The chrome has all been replaced with new pieces, and the undercarriage has been resprayed I black protective paint. With all of the updates the exterior and engine had received, they couldn’t leave the interior alone; all new black carpet was installed along with door panels, center console, and seats. The radio was updated to a modern CD player and a new steering wheel and Hurst shifter were also fitted. This car truly has had every bit of its disco-era design updated to a more modern style. The factory wheels have been replaced with a much sportier aluminum set. Options include AM/FM/CD, manual top, custom wheels, power windows, radial tires, seat belts, and vinyl interior.
