SUMMARY * The beneficiary of a ground-up restoration * Original 427 cubic inch Chevrolet V8 / Correct tri-power carburetion * Correct Muncie 4-speed manual transmission * Correct Tuxedo Black paint / Factory T-tops * Correct Black vinyl interior / Modern audio * Factory power steering * Factory 4-wheel power disc brakes * 15-inch Rally Wheels ---------- Start talking vintage sports cars and the second generation Stingray is almost always directly referenced. Offered in two body styles, and equipped with engine options that spanned 149 cubic inches, the C3 was capable of satisfying nearly every gearhead that took interest. And that legacy of universal appeal has continued for over 60 years, giving fans and aficionados the parts and inspiration to enjoy their favorite car pretty much indefinitely. Take this '69 coupe, for example. Thoughtfully rehabilitated during a ground-up restoration, this tastefully detailed Chevy turns a universally appealing platform into a Main Street super star. If you're ready to hit the road in a brash, head-turning classic, check out this stunning Corvette! BODYWORK/TRIM 'All Corvettes are red' is a common generalization. 'Yellow Corvettes are the epitome of American motorsports' is reinforced by Team Corvette's continued racing success. But, it's certainly hard to argue that black Corvettes don't look awesome. The beneficiary of a quality, ground-up restoration, this sinister C3 presents correct Tuxedo Black pigment that, thanks to a late NASCAR super star, enjoys a natural association with both Chevrolet and success. Step close to the car and it becomes very obvious that its fiberglass body has been carefully prepped, as there are no bonding seams visible from any angle. Further examination reveals headlight doors that fit well, lines that are crisp, and aggressive fenders which show no signs of rounding from an overzealous sander. And presently, thanks to excellent finishing work, this Chevy is one slick classic that looks almost as good as the day it rolled out of the paint shop! With such a cleanly styled body, ornamentation could have easily ruined the C3's presence. Thankfully, Chevrolet did a great job of placing form over function and keeping brightwork to a minimum. At the front of the car, chrome-trimmed grilles center small parking lamps between a thin bumper and subtle chin spoiler. Above that mirrored brow, a cross-flag-branded header draws the eye to a chrome-trimmed hood that seats bold 427 emblems at the foot of a vacuum operated cowl. That hood reflects an array of clean glass that's framed in straight stainless trim and factory-spec T-tops. At the sides of that glass, flush door poppers and classy Stingray emblems perfectly complement a chrome driver's mirror and satin rocker guards. And at the back of the car, a stainless-trimmed, CORVETTE branded valance hangs a chrome tag frame and 2-tone tail lamps between a cross-flag fuel filler, thin bumpers and polished exhaust tips. ENGINE Beneath the sculpted hood you'll find an original, 427 cubic inch big block that hangs a correct 3963512 casting number behind a familiar Tonawanda (T) assembly stamp and matching partial VIN. Straight from the factory, GM's stout L71 V8 utilized high performance internals to twist stout 11 to 1 compression into an even 435 horsepower! At the peak of the pavement-scorching mill, a polished and decaled air cleaner swirls wind in to a correct Winters intake by way of familiar Holley carburetors. At the sides of that plane, cast iron heads hang stamped and polished valve covers over old school, cast exhaust manifolds. At the back of those heads, chrome-capped ignition sequences spark through sleeved plug wires. And in front of those wires, era-correct smog equipment frames a beefy radiator. Naturally, ancillary components are top notch in every way, with GM-branded hoses and a rust-free brake booster accompanying stainless fuel lines, reproduction tower clamps and a rebuilt De
