Classic Car Overview

1969 Chevrolet Corvette Convertible The sales brochure in 1969 claimed that the car had a gauge for everything but your blood pressure . Tachometer, ammeter, oil pressure, sweep second rally clock, fuel gauge, mileage and trip odometer, warning lights for seat belts, headlight position and door ajar. The center console houses fingertip controls for the heater, defroster, radio, vents, ashtray, cigarette lighter, shift lever and parking brake, plus an engine rating plate and softly glowing space-age fiber optics that monitor outside running lights. Color-keyed deluxe push button seat belts and inertia action shoulder belts, on the coupe, retract out of the way when not in use. From slimline bucket seats, drivers enjoy just the right feel of the new competition steering wheel with a resilient rim. For consignment, a Stingray from 1969. This car retains its factory exterior look and has a numbers matching drivetrain. A new Centerforce clutch, and good looking convertible and Im ready to relive 1969 all over again and again. Exterior Its 1969 and this Corvette is bathed in non-original Marina Blue over the fiberglass moldings that make up the body. This design utilizes some nice curves, has a retro throwback with the shark gills in the front quarter, and uses glorious chrome, (soon to go away!). That chrome leads the way with a V shaped front bumper and surrounding grille supports, all in good condition. Stingray now one word is showing up in badging just above the gills . Chrome window surrounds and side view mirrors are there too and a stainless-steel rocker covering emphasizes the exaggerated coke bottle design of the sensuously curved sides. The white canvas convertible top is clean and looking good. This is completely covered by a fiberglass lift up panel just in front of where a trunk lid would be. It gently lands on the rear deck where the gas filler cap is in the very center. The back of the car leaves an impression too with the split chromed bumpers, round taillights and dual exhaust exiting from the roll pan on each corner. 15 inch deep trim ringed rally wheels are on all 4 corners and all are wrapped with raised white lettered BFG Radial T/As. Interior In wonderful contrast to the exterior Marina Blue, we offer up a black vinyl covered interior. This black first makes its appearance on the door panels. Neatly molded and sculpted with small striped black broadcloth center panels the lock turn knobs, door actuator, are housed here. Slipping into the high back thin design buckets we have smooth black bolsters and air vented tuck and roll vinyl cloth like inserts. These chairs are in excellent condition, as is the center console with its padded armrest/storage lid, with the remainder of the console moving towards the dash in molded blue plastic to cover the hump. Also here is the shift lever handbrake and ashtray surrounded in back plastic. Moving up from the console we have the radio which is a retro styled factory AM/FM system. Also 5 gauges are lined up above in a panel that monitors everything but your blood pressure, (as the brochure says!). A nice black rally steering wheel with a trio of satin spokes which come together in the center and mount up with the black center steering column. An angled dash houses dual deep inset round speedo and tach as well as eyeball A/C vents, and a few simple pulls. Padded black vinyl covers the dash and dash top and is all in excellent condition. Black carpeting is on the floors, and this wraps up a very clean presentation...take a black vinyl bow! Drivetrain A forward flip of the hood, and we see the numbers matching, original 427ci V8 numbers matching block complete with A/C and power steering. A single 4-barrel correct matching number carburetor is on top. On back is a Muncie M20 4-speed manual transmission is on and this is also from the factory as per the numbers decode. On the back a CAT coded 3.08 positraction rear axle is on. All very clean and corrosion free with like new hoses and wiring which goes through a factory ignition. Undercarriage Slight wear and patina are seen underneath, but overall, a solid frame in all steel is looking great and rust free. All independent SLA forged aluminum upper and lower control arms and a steering knuckle, transverse mono leaf springs and steel stabilizer bar and spindle offset is the suspension for the front. On back full independent suspension with frame anchored differential unit. Transverse leaf springs are here as well. Power disc brakes are all around and all is fine underneath on this 69. Drive-Ability I just adore these late 60s Vettes so I hopped into the thin high backs and it was off to the test track, (definitely one of the perks of this job!). Here this car has great acceleration, bias free panic stopping, and great handling with that complex suspension. Here you have a clean high performance piece of sculpture that you can drive everyday reliably, and look great while doing it. The blue is definitely an eye catcher and with the pristine black exterior and peppering of chrome it certainly is 1969 again!
