This 1971 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray hits all the high notes: a strong stroker V8, four-on-the-floor, an attractive all-blue factory package, and plenty of recent investments in quality. It all adds up to a terrific classic coupe offered for a terrific price.
There's something great about the early C3 design. It combines the long and low American look with the flying buttress rear styling of the Europeans. They are also for the chrome lovers, and so it's very important that the front panel, two-piece rear bumper, and all the other brightwork looking so complete and clean. This one wears its factory-correct code 976 Mulsanne Blue. We love the color and its race-inspired name, especially because this one also has an upgraded hood to signal the upgraded motor within. The rest of the body shows the right signs of wearing the original factory application. The paint doesn't stay perfect nearly a half-century later, but when you're a true Corvette fan, you seek out this kind of originality.
The factory-correct blue interior complements to the exterior blue quite nicely. So it's great to take out the T-tops and show off the full color package. And don't forget, this is from the years of the removable rear window, so you can really get a nice breeze flowing through the car whenever you like. The bucket seats have plenty of legroom for plenty of comfort to make it a great long-distance cruiser for two. There's even an upgraded AM/FM stereo for better driving music. Of course, the best soundtrack comes from when you grab the Hurst shifter and take full advantage of the beast under the hood.
One look at the clean, bright, and tidy engine bay, and you know this is far from stock. We have a receipt from 2015 for a 383 cubic-inch stroker V8, and this one really has the growl to suggest a performance build. In fact, it this powerhouse is enhanced with Edelbrock Performer RPM aluminum heads, an Edelbrock intake, MSD 6AL ignition, and topped with a Quick Fuel four-barrel carburetor. Long tube headers add even more power while contributing to the rumble of the dual exhaust. The Muncie four-speed manual transmission was rebuilt in the summer of 2020 to give you confident control over this full power package. Also within the last few months, the rear end was gone through, including diff pinion bushing, bolts, diff gasket, new Positraction fluid, strut rod bushings, and a spring bolt kit. It makes for a classic that's ready to hit the road, especially with power steering, four-wheel power disc brakes, and the Corvette's fully independent sports suspension.
Complete with owner's manual, this is one special Corvette that loves both history and power. So at a value price like this, you know how fast you need to be to grab this deal. Call today!!!
