Description for Chevrolet Corvette 1970

This HighlyDocumented NCRS Top Flight Award winning1970 Chevrolet Corvette convertible is an exceptional example of one of the all-time-greatest, small-block-powered Corvettes, the LT1. Big-block powerplants had proliferated in the Corvette lineup since the introduction of the L78 396/425 HP V-8 in 1965, but by 1970 only one remained: the LS5 454 rated at 390 HP and a whopping 500 lb-ft of torque. While a 454-equipped Corvette could certainly tear up the pavement, there was a new addition to the small-block range that could stay right with it. Dubbed LT1, the new small-block resulted in a much lighter car, shaving a full 405 pounds from its curb weight and distributing the rest evenly between the front and rear axles. The LT1 was nothing less than a detuned racing engine endowed with 4-bolt main-bearing caps, forged rotating assembly, a special high-lift, high-duration cam and a big-block-sized Holley 850 CFM 4-barrel carburetor on a high-rise aluminum intake. Conservatively rated at 370 HP at 6,000 RPM and 380 lb-ft of torque at 4,000 RPM, the LT1 announced its presence with a pinstriped big-block-style hood with "LT1" badges and a distinctive mechanical tapping at idle that gave way to a steely exhaust roar at speed, and produced big-block performance with the athletic handling only possible in a small-block Corvette. This 1970 Chevrolet Corvette LT1 convertible has been fully nut and boltrestored to better than newand shows a believed-correct95,500 miles on the odometer. Matching-numbers LT1 350/370 HP small-block V-8, complete with its signature chromed air cleaner, finned-aluminum valve covers and intact A.I.R. emission-control system; it also incorporates the original Muncie 4-speed manual transmissionwith a 370 ratiopositraction rear end. The look is classic third-generation Corvette: Marlboro Maroonwith a sharp, black, vinyl interior,white convertible top and Firestone Wide Oval tires on Rally wheels.
