Description for Chevrolet Corvette 1970

1970 Corvette Stingray. T-Tops. Manual Transmission
High HP 427 Big Block.
I have had a few questions. Title is clean and clear and on hand...not a salvage or any surprises. No electrical issues. All wiring is clean and supple. All gauges and lights work including clock and center console light monitoring system! I will try to post a pic of underside in daylight but it is clean as well because most all mechanicals are new or professionally rebuilt.

This car is ready to show and go. Draws a TON of thumbs up attention from collectors and daily drivers everywhere it is driven.
This car has over $30K in parts.
Labor has been completed by an experienced mechanical engineer and professional paint and body man.
In short, it is not possible to build a more beautiful or powerful C3 from this desirable year for under $50K.
Overall Details:
This Corvette Stingray sits on a new set of Mickey Thompson Sportsman S/T Radials but that is just where this beautiful and powerful car meets the ground.
This car started as a damage free Stingray with only 56K miles from the dry southwest (New Mexico).
The body was stripped and refinished by a retired professional paint and body man for his own personal collection. When personal reasons drove him to sell, we picked it up and finished the mechanicals to compliment the beautiful project he had painstakingly started.
The engine was replaced with a warmed over and fully rebuilt 427, the interior was replaced with original or new restoration parts, and finally the entire drivetrain and suspension were reassembled with new or rebuilt parts where necessary.
Body:
New professional blue metallic, multi-stage paint finish after being completely disassembled, stripped, and painstakingly blocked before paint to show off the beautiful lines.
All new emblems.
All new weatherstripping.
Converted to more desirable 1973 hood for additional hood clearance and sensual lines.
This car is very straight with excellent gaps throughout and has no overspray. The beautiful metallic finish glistens and dances in the sun.
Interior:
New oil pressure, amp, fuel, and temperature gauges.
New quartz clock movement.
New Carpet.
New rear package storage trays.
New door panels.
New crank handles and lock knob.
New AutoSound stereo system.
New speakers, including AutoSound rear speakers.
New retractable seat belts.
Original leather seats are soft in nearly flawless condition with no tears, creases, seam issues, etc.
Fiber optic lens system converted to LED to monitor exterior lamp operation from the driver seat. These status lights were a standard item on 1970 only....very cool.The interior is clean and holds the occupants securely with the new 3 point retractable harness.
Engine:
Started as a 1969 427 but has been completely rebuilt with reliable go-fast goodies including...
New Edelbrock Thumper Hydraulic Cam
New Edelbrock RPM Air Gap intake manifold.
New Edelbrock Carburetor with electric choke for reliability.
New HEI ignition with correct gear driven tachometer.
New single wire 110 amp alternator.
New DeWitts dual spal fan big block 3 core aluminum radiator module.
All new ancillary parts including water pump, pulleys, balancer, valve covers, fuel pump, oil pump, starter, etc.
New exhaust manifolds feed a completely new exhaust system from the engine to the chrome outlets including all clamps, supports, and trim.
Completely compatible with today's lead-free and ethanol enhanced fuels.
Stock engine was conservatively rated at 390 HP in 1970 but this fresh and modern big block now pushes out more than that even at the mile-high altitude where it now resides and it sounds INCREDIBLE with a healthy lope at idle! HOLD ON and feather the pedal to keep traction at most any speed even on the wide tires that fill the rear wells perfectly!
Transmission:
Original 4 Speed Muncie was completely rebuilt including all new synchros, springs, etc.
Rebuilt linkages...even replaced back-up switch with brand new part.
New Ceramic racing clutch complete with new flywheel, new throwout bearing, new pilot bearing.
This notoriously bullet proof transmission provides positive shifts that are firm and tight without excessive pedal pressure.
Rear-end:
Entire rear end was replaced with all new components, or fully rebuilt ones, to handle the high horsepower big block starting with the synthetic filled positrac 4.10 differential. New leaf springs and completely rebuilt and balanced driveshafts with new greasable u-joints. All new polyurethane bushings.Rear adjustable camber rods were installed to easily dial in camber based on your driving needs...more camber for hard cornering or less camber for roadways with just a few turns of the centerlink.
In fact, the entire rear end is completely adjustable for height, toe-in, and camber and is built right to be incredibly reliable.
Brakes:
4 piston disc brakes on all 4 corners. Completely replaced braking system including master cylinder, calipers, pads, rotors, hoses, clamps and fittings on all 4 wheels.
This car stops straight and brakes are firm without excessive foot pressure.
Wheels/Tires:
New chrome 15x10 rally wheels with new derby caps.
P255/60R15 Mickey Thompson Sportsman S/T.
These higher speed rated tires have much better grip than the BF Goodrich rubber most people run.Beautiful.
Other:
New Optima Gel Battery.
New turn signal, parking, brake, and back-up lenses.
New bulbs throughout.
New lock cylinders and keys.
New headlight switch.
New wiper switch.
New shocks on all 4 corners.
Frustrating and error prone vacuum operated systems under hood were eliminated by replacing the wiper door with a longer 73 L88 hood and converting the headlight system to electric motors. The wiper motor and washer system were replaced with new at the same time...very nice and work flawlessly!
New heater core.
New fuel tank and sending unit.
All new fuel lines compatible with ethanol fuel.
New belt and hoses.
Even has a new fuel cap.
Some odds and ends:
Spare tire carrier is in good condition and is included but not installed. It is best to leave this part off to reduce risk of damage with the super low clearance of these cars.
Odometer just stopped working when we reset the trip.
New front a-arm polyurethane bushings are included but have not been replaced because the front end is tight and operates smoothly and quietly.
