1969 Chevrolet Corvette#'S MATCHING L36 427/390HP V8,4-SPEED TRANS, FACTORY COLORS,CONVERTIBLE BLACKTOP, CLEAN!!!
The story on this 1969 Corvette Stingray convertible is one of those clean, honest cars that doesn't require cubic dollars to purchase yet delivers a high-quality pedigree that certainly adds to the ownership experience. It offers a matching numbers 427, a great color combination, and a original equipment Muncie 4-speed transmission..
Tuxedo Blackmakes this sleek 'Vette look period perfect, and given that it's had a recent repaint, it should be no surprise that it remains in great condition. It was completed aboutfive years ago and the finish keeps that original single-stage look that works so well, and even after 45 years, this shape remains one of the most attractive in the entire automotive kingdom. There are no gaudy stripes or styling add-ons, which speaks volumes about the integrity of the design, and for many the earliest C3s are the best of the bunch with their chrome bumpers and hidden windshield wipers. It does wear a correct vented big block hood with '427' callouts, and it comes by those honestly, so the car will get a lot of respect on the street. It's not perfect and probably wasn't intended to be, but for a car that's ready to drive anywhere, anytime, it looks like a million bucks. Those aforementioned chrome bumpers look great and you'll note that the Stingray badges above the side vents are now one word, not two as with the earlier C2 cars.
Thesaddle interior contrasts perfectly with therareTuxedo Blackpaint and with a few well-chosen options, this Corvette becomes a great grand-touring machine rather than a hardcore sports car. The interior is completely restored including theleather upgragedseat covers and carpets, which gives it a polished, high-quality look. The original gauges are remarkably clear and bright and you can't argue with how well the interior works from a driver's standpoint, with everything within easy reach. An aftermarketAM-FM radio delivers decent sound and the cool fiber-optic lamp monitors are always fascinating for first-time Corvette owners. The black vinyl folding convertible top stows under the rear deck. Top is new.
The 427 cubic inch L36 V8 is this car's original, matching-numbers engine and makes a substantial 390 plushorsepower. With endless reserves of torque and an attitude that practically invites you to plant your foot on the floor, it's a blast to drive. It looks great with the open-element air cleaner and shiny chrome valve covers. The Engine had a professional rebuild in 2011, which included boring of block, new rods installed and a camshaft upgrade. There's also a lot of original componentry that still works and looks great. Long tube haeders were replaced with the factory exhaust manifoldsand feed a throaty exhaust system that tucks up tight under the floor, so there are no ground clearance issues. The 4-speed transmissiontotally makes this big block Vette so much fun to drive. Shiny Rally wheels with relatively recent 255/60/15 radials mean the car rides and handles well with a traditional Corvette look. This car was purchased in 2006 and the frame on restoration was completed in 2011. Since the restoration was completed it has been driven approximately 2500 miles.
Any Corvette with a 427 in it is special, and this brilliant ragtop with its matching-numbers engine and4-speed transmission, is a fun, flashy Corvette with a great pedigree.
