Description for Chevrolet Corvette 1971

Fully loaded1971LS5 Corvette with 454 BBC & TH400


Body is in great shape, previous owner had it repainted a few years back (couple imperfections, but very sharp otherwise). Frame looks to be solid and undercarriage was coated to help prevent rusting. Interior is in good shape and seats are free of rips/tears.


Recently rebuilt engine by previous owner (unfortunately not a numbers matching car). It appears the rebuild was rushed and a couple short cuts were taken. Recently starting knocking and appears to be a bad rod bearing from the right bank. Electrical could definitely use some work as well. Gauges worked fine until recently when they all cut out (assuming it has to do with the poor wiring). Would love to fix the car myself, I just don't have the time or money to do so.

Definitely would be a great car for someone who wants a solid project car or has an already finished engine they want to drop in.

A handful of new parts have been added since I've gotten the car a few months ago:

- Optima Yellow Top Battery

- Alternator

- Flex-O-Lite Fan (Dual 12" Puller)

- Rear calipers and rotors

Upgrades according to previous owner:

- Weiand High Rise Intake w/ Holley Performance Carbs

- V-belt Setup

- Crane Cam Stud Girdle

- Aluminum Lifters

- Bored 0.080"

- Griffin Aluminum Radiator

- American Racing Wheels

- BF Goodrich Radial T/A's

- Still have the stock 454 hood (shown in pic) and replacement side & rear view mirrors that I can include if wanted

Please let me know if you have any questions or want any other pictures

I misspoke about the rear calipers & rotors. The right side calipers were what was replaced

Also, I was able to get a hold of the previous owner about some of the engine's internals
