When you have the numbers-matching 427 big block, four-on-the-floor, and an awesome color combo, then you already know this 1969 Chevrolet Corvette L36 427 is attractive. And when you find out it has a long history of service and respect to make it a terrific driver, well then, you know this Stingray is irresistible.
<br><br> Monza red is the factory-correct color. Not only is it a great name worthy of this high-horsepower coupe, but also the bold look really does give this car an aggressive/sporty attitude. But while the look begs you to get in and have fun, the overall impression tells you this has been treated with care for over half a century. It's coming off of over a dozen years of long-term ownership. And you can see the long-term respect in the way the T-tops fit sung, the headlights rest flush, the glass is clean/clear, and the doors close with confidence. The bright work looks good with the sharply pointed front end, two-piece rear bumper, and iconic Rally wheels. And of course, there's something magical about those polished breathers that draw attention to the power dome of the big block hood.
<br><br> The deep black interior has a sharp look against the bold exterior color, and that's the way this one was born! As a true classic, you'll appreciate plenty of details, like the headrests, working courtesy lights, and the Delco AM/FM radio. But of course, the true appeal is the way a Corvette speaks to your enthusiast heart. The bucket seats, center console, grippy shifter, three-spoke sports steering wheel, large speedo and tach, and a full set of auxiliary gauges set at eye-level all make this a driver's classic. Plus, these earlier C3s have the removable rear window. This combines with the T-tops to give you the choice of a coupe-like enclosure or a convertible-like experience.
<br><br> Lift the hood to see what we all love in a Corvette: an engine bay stuffed with big block power. The polished air topper, valve covers, and distributor shield give this plenty of flair. But what will really impress people is that the mighty L36 427 cubic-inch block is the numbers-matching unit. It was rebuilt in 1993 to keep it running strong. And there were also desirable investments like Hooker headers and a transmission service around then. Plus, there have been more recent investments, like new bushings, new strut rods, and power steering added all in 2015. The result is a strong big block that loves to fire up with a big growl and hit the road. The four-speed manual transmission, fully independent sports suspension, and four-wheel power disc brakes all work together to give you terrific control over this powerful Stingray.
<br><br> The sale comes complete with the owner's manual and three decades of maintenance records. This is the big block coupe that has been kept to look quite bold and correct. It makes for a fantastic package for those who really love classic and powerful motoring. Call today!!!
