The sales pitch:

BEWARE of spending big bucks on a vintage Corvette only to find that you immediately have to spend more money to fix a lot of mechanical issues! Even with a professional inspection, unless things have been fixed/replaced recently, you don’t know what is going to break next in an old car! This car has had extensive work done since I bought it in October 2019, including all of the following:

·New BF Goodrich radial tires (except the spare tire)

·New trim rings

·Front end alignment

·Brake system repairs (incl. brake master cylinder, power brake boosters, pads, calipers)

·Wheel bearings repacked

·New mufflers (old ones sounded like a pickup truck!)

·New ignition cylinder (old one was faulty)

·New battery

·New fuel pump and fuel line (old one was faulty)

·New AC compressor (old one was faulty)

·New windshield wiper vacuum pump (old one was faulty)

·Several leaks fixed (incl. engine oil pan gasket, transmission cooler hose, valve cover gaskets)

·Oil changed, radiator flushed, brake fluid changed; all other fluids checked

·New tachometer (old one was broken)

·New sun visors (old ones were missing – go figure?)

·New upper dash pad (old one was cracked)

·New Lloyd’s custom floor mats

·Bluetooth AM/FM radio (old radio was AM/FM cassette – does anyone even own cassettes anymore?)

·Passenger side mirror (wasn’t original on the ’69 Corvettes, but matches perfectly and increases visibility!)

You know you’re not going to have to fix the above things on this car any time soon! All of the work (except for the radio and mufflers) was done at my local Chevrolet dealership by their Corvette mechanic.There are receipts for everything, and the above work done by Chevrolet is under limited warranty. As a whole, the vehicle does not have an existing warranty and is being sold as is.

BTW, think you want a convertible instead of a coupe? Be prepared for it to leak around the top's fitting if it gets wet!

What else I can tell you about the car:

  • A/C, heat, lights, and all of the gauges work.The car passed its state inspection in October 2019, not that they check things like A/C and heat. You can call my local Chevrolet dealership and talk to the Corvette mechanic to ask any questions you have about the mechanical and/or physical integrity of the car; I’ll be happy to provide you with their phone number.
  • The original color was burgundy according to the color code on the car.
  • The paint has cracking and some chipping; it certainly could use a new paint job. The chrome is in very good shape (no pitting).
  • The interior is in very good shape. The carpet looks good; the seats have no tears; the upholstery on the doors, console, etc. looks very good; there are no stains.
  • A previous owner replaced the 5 original gauges (fuel level, oil pressure, water temperature, clock, and voltmeter) in the center console with AutoMeter gauges. I’m not sure why.
  • The previous owner (from Texas) had the car for 12 years and only drove it ~2K miles (not good!); as far as I know he kept it garaged (as have I). He provided no documentation of any maintenance done under his watch.However, the owner before him (also from Texas) kept meticulous documentation going back to 2000, which I will provide
  • The car was sold to me as having a 383 ci engine.There is no documentation on exactly what modifications were done to make the original 350/300 engine into a 383 cu in engine, so I can’t authenticate that claim.
  • According to both my Chevrolet dealership mechanic and the owner of a body repair shop that I consulted, there is no rust on the car and the frame is not bent. You’re welcome to get your own inspection done; there are several such companies in my area. Also, the body repair shop owner said that he could tell the right front fender had had minor collision damage in the past (that had been adequately repaired), but, other than that,could see no signs of any prior damage to the car.
  • Comes with 2 Corvette C3 logo key rings, tan canvas cover (not weather proof), original 1969 sales brochure, body assembly manual, chassis service manual, owner’s manual, radio instruction manual, and notebook containing receipts for repairs.

Why I’m selling the car: I have 3 cars (2 Corvettes and a very nice SUV) and a 2-car garage. I’m not happy with having the SUV outside, and I’m certainly not going to put one of the Corvettes outside! The reserve price is based on what I paid for this car and the amount of money I have spent on repairs. Note that you may be paying a BIG markup for a car being sold by a used car dealer (as opposed to a private seller).

Payment options: I will accept a cashier’s check or a money order. A non-refundable deposit of $1000 is required within 24 hours of winning the auction. The balance is due within 7 days of the end of the auction. All funds must clear prior to the buyer taking delivery of the car; the car will not be released without all funds clearing. Buyer is responsible for all state fees, taxes, and shipping.
