1970 Chevrolet Corvette Convertible RestomodBig block power, five-speed control, an upgraded sports suspension, and a look that will have you putting a mirror under this at car shows... This 1970 Chevrolet Corvette convertible is a fresh build that is the ideal mix of cool looks and serious sports car authority. So dig into the details of one very cool Stingray.
Black was not a factory color on the Corvette in 1970, but this one shows you exactly why you wish it were. It's a quality application that gives gloss to this midnight hero. This is a fresh restoration with less than 450 miles on it in total. So the doors line up nicely, the headlights close flush, and there is an overall crisp look of quality. But what you really love is all the investment in the brightwork. The mirror-like chrome on the front bumper gives the shark-like nose extra definition, and the two-piece rear is truly artful. And some of the shine also draws attention to the added performance, like on the polished 17-inch Torq Thrust wheels and the intimidating side pipes.
The white folding roof against all that black and chrome gives this the look of a formal night on the town in a tuxedo. But for even more distinction, all you have do is take the top down. The red interior radiates against the black like lava out of a volcano. It's all particularly vibrant because of how fresh this one is from restoration. And the black trim inside gives it a well-coordinated total package. So we know you'll love showing it off wherever you park this Stingray. And we also know you'll enjoy the drive even more. The three-spoke sports steering wheel is on a tilt column to give you an excellent view of the large speedo and tach. The full auxiliary gauge panel is at eye-level just to the side. And have you counted the gears on the stick shift yet? Plus, there are even provisions for R134a air conditioning, which is always welcomed in a convertible like this.
Under the big block hood is proper big block power. This is a clean and mean setup with 454 cubic-inch V8 that radiates its muscle with the bold block, shining valve covers, matching distributor shield, and air topper with callouts. It inhales deeply with a proper Quadrajet four-barrel carburetor, and those side pipes allow the big block to exhale with a powerful authority. And you can tell this was made for driving with features like the fresh belts, newer electric fuel pump, and aluminum radiator/electric fan. The five-speed manual transmission means you have better control over this monster V8 and its thunderous soundtrack better than any C3 got from the factory. And that's not the only driving upgrades. When you look at the undercarriage photos, the painted red frame will make you want to put a mirror under this one at the cars shows. Plus, you'll also spot that the fully independent suspension has been upgraded to a C4-style setup, and that's further enhanced with adjustable coilovers at each wheel. Add in power steering, four-wheel power disc brakes, and excellent tread on modern tires, and this is the Stingray that's great for both show and go!
Sleek, powerful, and absolutely unforgettable, this is a convertible of distinction. So if you love to be memorable, don't miss this enhanced classic Corvette. Call today!!!
