This Corvette was to be the feature car at the April Branson Auction, but due to the coronavirus the auction has be postponed indefinetely so we are offering it at a special price.
We recently acquired this 1969 Corvette back after having sold it approximately three years ago. When we first purchased this car the owner had passed away and we acquired it from his three daughters. We sold the car before it was even listed back then to a local gentleman that started a cosmetic restoration on the car. In fact he spent several thousands of dollars on many parts from Corvette Central and other suppliers all documented with receipts in a portfolio that goes with the sale of this vehicle. The Corvette had been repainted when we first purchased it and was done overall nicely. The car was painted in Daytona Yellow with black vinyl interior. The body fit is good and the finish of the clear coat is very nice. The doors were all removed as well as the trim and were painted correctly. The door jambs are finished out better than it was when new and the car has been polished and rubbed out to a show like shine. The front bumper was rechromed and the parking light grill assemblies are new. The rear bumpers are still in nice presentable shape but were not rechromed. The car does have an L-88 style hood in order for clearance of the intake and carburetor that is on the car. That is the only known incorrect obvious exterior part that is non-original. The car is a 427 big block car and we believe it was born that way originally. It does have a period correct casting number 427 block, but is non-original to this car. The engine runs out strong and has a nice cam in it. It does have a set of aluminum heads and the previous owner refinished the intake manifold, installed a new carburetor and distributor, new water pump and fuel pump, new correct style chrome valve covers, recoated the headers, removed the radiator and had it cleaned, and installed all new engine and dash wiring harnesses. He also replaced all of the vacuum hoses, new carpeting and gauges, new center console and emergency brake center console and several other things all documented in the portfolio. He did add the nice upgraded retro am/fm radio that fits into the original center gauge cluster like factory. The underneath of the carpeting has been lined with the insulation to deaden the noise and heat from the exhaust system. The car does have an upgraded fiberglass mono leaf rear spring for better ride and handling. The frame is still solid and in good shape for the age and the exhaust system has been replaced at some point. Currently the car is getting all new seat covers, foam and headrests from Al Knoch being professionally installed as well as a complete new Al Knoch black stayfast canvas softop with all new weatherstripping.
