Description for Chevrolet Corvette 1969

This 1969 Chevrolet Corvette Convertible is an outstanding representative of the model in its sweeping, third generation form. Wearing its original colors both inside and out and harboring a signature smooth running small block under its lengthy hood, it's also an outstanding driver and, armed with loads of curb appeal, is sure to demand attention wherever it may roam. The sheer longevity of these third generation 'Vettes is a testimony to just how inspired their original... design really was. While even before the generation debuted the model had long since established itself as a favorite with performance minded car buyers, Chevy went big on its redesign, basing a large portion of its modernization on the revolutionary Mako II concept cars that had wowed audiences on the car show circuit years before. Just a quick lap around the car will reveal the dramatic changes that set it apart from its predecessors - the lengthened wheelbase and hood area, the flowing fenders and the flush door handles are most notable. The Fathom Green paint draped over the exterior of this '69 is its original shade and makes a very effective presentation, amplified by the new chrome bumpers at both ends and a collection of body trim that's in consistently good shape. For motoring under darkening skies, you'll have a couple of options, as both the black vinyl convertible top and the color matched accessory hard top are in fine form and fit nicely. Climb inside and you'll be surrounded by a black vinyl interior that remains in factory configuration and shows minimal wear on everything from the pair of high backed bucket seats to the dash panel, with its customary extensive assortment of clear, functional gauges lodged just below a dash pad with no splits or tears in sight. Sitting between the buckets is a fresh-looking center console with a compartment to provide some extra interior storage space and it positions the shifter within easy reach due to its slight incline. To each side, the door panels are in great shape, clinging tightly to their steel frames and carrying a collection of hardware that appears to have been added not long ago. Below, the carpeting shows minimal wear and remains well-fitted. The Corvette's notchback design might have done away with a traditional trunk area, but there's some storage space behind the buckets to accommodate luggage for weekend getaways. Raise the hood and you'll find a 327 cubic inch V8 residing in the engine bay. It's not only a period correct engine, but likely the vintage small block most closely associated with the Chevy brand. Outfitted with a 4-barrel carb and sparked by a new ignition system, the powerplant still wears its proper chrome air cleaner and valve covers and teams with a 4-speed manual transmission that shifts flawlessly and with seamless clutch engagement to create just the right "hands on" driving experience a performance-centric classic like this deserves. Power disc brakes at all four corners bring prompt, fade resistant stops, while power steering makes this low-slung corner carver easy to maneuver on its set of 15" stock wheels outfitted with BF Goodrich T/A radials. It's pretty hard to beat the sheer magnetism of a vintage 'Vette and, with its entire drivetrain in top form, this 1969 Chevrolet Corvette Convertible also offers the promise of exhilarating open air driving that makes it a blast to drive.
