1969 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray Additional Info:

If you're a first-time Corvette buyer looking for the right car, we'd strongly recommend this sharp 1969 Corvette Stingray. With a sharp color, multiple options, and a stroked 383 V8, this is one Vette that is a pleasure to drive!The third-generation Corvette is an amazing looking sports car. The long hood and short deck made these resemble a primed slingshot even when standing still. Plus, the T-top coupes offer all the fun of open motoring with added safety and security. This was the year of the "Stingray", literally. 1969 was the first time it appeared as one word on the fender of these Corvettes (it had been two words or missing from previous years). Contrary to popular folklore, not all Corvettes need to be red. This one is in its factory-correct shade of Riverside Gold, and it looks as sharp today as it did in its era. Early C3s like this coupe are from a time before large fender flares and exaggerated lines fussed with the car's original shark-like appearance. Because these are so desirable, some cars can spend their lives stuck in a garage. Not this one. It has been a well maintained driver all its life, so you can feel free to continue on with this tradition and enjoy it like it was meant, driven.There's no better complement to a gold exterior than a black interior. There seems to have been real care taken with the bucket seats, door panels, map pockets, and dash, because they all retain their rich darkness. The interior is not a complete midnight experience with the shine of the three-spoke wheel as well as some aftermarket wood veneer around the center console and gauges. A Corvette is a premium experience, so this one comes with features such as power steering, power windows, power brakes, heat/defrost, and tilt steering. There is a nicely upgraded stereo with a knob-style display that looks period correct, but it is really a more modern unit with a digital tuner and an iPod connection. The best sound this car makes is the growl from the 383 cubic-inch V8 under the hood. You might be thinking that's a misprint because Chevrolet never offered that displacement, but about 5,500 miles ago a 350 was rebuilt into a stroker motor. This increases the displacement of the small block for more power in a compact package. Although it looks just like most 350 motors, this stealthy engine now puts out 430 hp - we'll even show you the dyno sheet to prove it! 1969 was also the first year for the now famously stout TH350 three-speed automatic transmission. All of this power gets to the road via a set of Goodyear GTII performance tires. Even without the modern rubber, these C3 Corvettes have a lightweight surefootedness that makes them feel more secure than just about any other domestic contemporary. When it's time to stop, there are disc brakes at all four wheels. This coupe screams honesty, right down to the included maintenance records. The icing on the cake is this Corvette is the sneaky street-eating motor. Enjoy it as yours today. Call now!!!
