One of the rarest Corvettes built in 1969! Out of 38,762 Corvette's made only 252 had a 3-speed! That's less than 1%. We have a letter directly from GM verifying this. The car is documented with original Protect-o-plate, original sales literature and owner's manual are included too. 1 person owned the car most of its life, he actually owned it twice! #s matching throughout.
EXTERIOR: The body appears to be in fantastic condition. I'm impressed with the way the all the panels lineup. I don't see any signs of damage. Repainted its original Riverside gold. The metal flake is laid out very nicely and has a very smooth glossy clear coat. It does he have some minor imperfections that you would have to look for. Up front the chrome is bright and the bumpers lineup real nice, it has the weather shields in the grill to protect the headlights. In back the luggage rack looks like new, the bumpers are good, license plate frame looks new. It has very desirable side exhaust system. 15x8 rally wheels have excellent trim. Good Year tires look like new. Black convertible top is in excellent condition. The door jambs are painted really nice. Weather strips are excellent, sill plates look like new.
INTERIOR: The seats and headrests have been reupholstered. The door panels look new. Carpet has been replaced front to back. The interior lights work. The dash pad is in excellent condition. Gauges are in real nice shape; clock is converted to quartz movement. It has the factory AM-FM stereo. The center console is in good original shape. Very rare 3-speed shift pattern and original chrome ball shifter.
ENGINE COMPARTMENT: The engine compartment is detailed to show quality. It looks factory correct. Numbers matching 350-300 hp engine with the stock manifolds, valve covers, carburetor, air cleaner etc. It even has a complete ignition shielding. The alternator looks new, it has correct fuel filter. The cooling system looks proper- clutch fan, radiator, shroud, and expansion tank. It has a new power steering conversion system.
UNDERSIDE: It was given a body off frame restoration at a Corvette shop about 20 years ago. It has a very clean underside. Independent suspension front and back. The front end looks like it has been entirely rebuilt- the bushings, steering components, ball joints have been replaced. Disc brakes it all 4 corners, e-brake assembly is hooked up. Looking up at the motor it's clean, I see the lower ignition shielding. It has the original Muncie 3-speed manual transmission. Drive shaft and u-joints look clean. Original rear end with 3.36 gears. The fiberglass floors don't appear to be damaged. Spare tire carrier is complete. Solid frame painted satin black.
This is a very nice Vette roadster. Investment quality and you can enjoy it! The rarity makes it very appealing to a collector. It makes it unique from all the others. I think it's cool!
I, Jay Grams, take pride in personally writing the descriptions for virtually every car for about the last 30 years now. A significant amount of effort goes into fact checking. What I am offering is my professional impression of the vehicle. Our salesmen are happy to assist with descriptions and making sure your questions are answered. One great suggestion is letting us do a walk around video that explains the car's condition in detail. **These cars are displayed in a museum. If interested in a particular car make an appointment with a salesman to see that car. Without an appointment there is an admission fee to enter the showroom. If you buy a car, your admission will be refunded and you will be given a 1 year membership.
