1971 Chevrolet Corvette 454 StingrayThis 1971 Chevrolet Corvette gives you numbers-matching big block power, a tasteful leather interior, and a sharp presentation of one of the most desirable Corvette bodies around. So it only gets better when it's dipped in a sleek representation of its correct one-year-only color.
The trim tag tells us this was born Brands Hatch Green, and it's a color we love. After all, it's named after a British racing circuit, and this color is deep enough to almost be called British Racing Green. And you'll absolutely be showing it off plenty because there was a solid investment here to make sure it remains smooth and shiny. So as people compliment the luster, you also get to remind them how it's special to 1971 only. More than just the paint, the whole package is quite attractive. You have aggressive Stingray pieces, like the big block hood and large dual exhaust tips. This is joined by elegant shining brightwork on the sharply pointed front bumper, rocker trim, two-piece rear bumper, and iconic Rally wheels.
A saddle tan leather interior has the look of a European-level of sophistication against the deep green exterior. So it really fits with the nature of this special Vette. There is a quality appearance with a newer center console, working fiber optics, and coco style floor mats for more of that European touch. And you've got T-tops, power windows, and the removable rear window to easily open up this coupe to the world. There are even provisions for air conditioning (it will need servicing to fully function again.) And of course, you'll love slipping behind the sports steering wheel. It tilts/telescopes to make sure you get a good view of the large speedo and tach. And all your auxiliary readouts are prominently in the center so you can keep a full eye on the motor.
Lift the hood and see an engine bay filled with big-block power. This numbers-matching 454 cubic-inch LS5 V8. It has bold but stock look with the vibrant orange block, matching valve covers, and a bright air grabber that still has the proper GM decal. There's nothing quite like turning the key and hearing this monster motor awaken. It fires up readily as the big Rochester four-barrel carburetor lets the V8 inhale deeply. It's a string runner that loves to give that ideal big block tune out of the dual exhaust. The TH400 three-speed transmission was built stout to handle the power while also delivering easy automatic shifting. It's easy to enjoy this for anytime driving thanks to the fully independent suspension, power steering, four-wheel power disc brakes, and 2020-dated new BF Goodrich rubber at each corner.
This is the cool Corvette that has a ton of American power and bit of distinct European flair. It all makes for the big block classic you know you need in your garage. Call today!!!
