Looking for a world-class rendition of America's world-beating sports car? Then park this impressive Stingray in your garage! BODYWORK/TRIM Assembled at GM's storied St. Louis manufacturing facility, this incredible Vette was produced on March 24th, 1971, Bloomington Gold certified on June 25th, 2000 and claimed NCRS Top Flight honors on November 4th, 2000. Of course, 30-year-old steel and resin doesn't live that kind of award-winning life unless it's benefitted from extensive restoration. And since this coupe spent quite a while with Corvette connoisseurs Ken and Gary Nabers of Houston, Texas, it's safe to assume the car has been carefully and correctly rebuilt. Naturally, that body-off reboot was topped with a glossy coat of correct Brands Hatch Green 2-stage. And today, this solid Chevy is a top-notch classic that provides a delightful combination of style, exclusivity and provenance. 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 bumper, a cross-flag-branded header draws the eye to a chrome-trimmed hood that seats bold 454 emblems at the foot of a vacuum operated cowl. That hood reflects factory-tint glass that's framed in bright stainless trim and capped by body-matched T-tops. At the sides of that glass, flush door poppers and flowing Stingray emblems perfectly complement a correct mirror, classy fender gills and stylish rocker trim. And at the back of the car, a CORVETTE branded valance hangs signature tail lamps and two chrome bumpers between a factory antenna, a requisite cross-flag fuel filler and spotless stainless exhaust tips ENGINE In 1971, if you wanted a top-of-the-line Corvette, you had one option: a 425 horsepower version of Chevrolet's coveted LS6 454. Fully sorted and ready to roll, this Stingray's original LS6 hangs a familiar 3963512 casting number behind a correct CPX assembly stamp and matching partial VIN. At the top of the mill, a chrome, correctly decaled air cleaner forces wind in to an 850cfm Holley 4-barrel that's cinched to stainless fuel lines and a correct aluminum intake. At the sides of that carb, stamped and painted valve covers cap correct Winters heads and fully restored exhaust manifolds. At the back of those heads, chrome-cased ignition sequences spark through silver-sleeved Packard cables. Opposite that ignition, traditional V-belts spin a correct alternator, complete with a correct deep-groove pulley, opposite a correct A.I.R. smog pump. In front of those ancillaries, a shrouded radiator circulates water through pliable hoses and reproduction tower clamps. Naturally, the Chevy Orange big block plays well against the car's Satin Black engine bay. And details like correct decals, a
