The 1967 Corvette is considered the most-loved Corvette ever produced. The combination of classic C2 styling, along with an incredible array of powertrain and comfort options, makes it one of the most desirable Corvettes ever. Not bad for a car that was never supposed to be made!
The ZR-1's production run from 1990-95 was one of the most exciting times for Corvette enthusiasts in recent memory. In the mid-1980s, rumors of a "King of the Hill" Corvette began to leak out of Detroit and into America's speed shops and dealerships.
Classic Car Overview
This 1970 Corvette Stingray coupe is a numbers-matching, two-owner Survivor car that includes a complete documentation history of all receipts and invoices since being purchased off the showroom floor in 1970 (see attached pictures).
The car has a 350 cubic inch (300 horsepower) engine, 4-speed manual transmission, 4-barrel carburetor, T-top with removable rear window, and the vehicle includes the following factory options: tilt-telescopic steering wheel, special wheel covers, AM/FM stereo radio, and a black custom interior.
The current owner purchased the car in 2005 from a family friend, who bought it new in 1970 (see attached dealer invoice). In 2005, the original engine was professionally rebuilt, the clutch was replaced, as were a number of parts. An entirely new brake system was professionally installed in 2014.
The car has always been garaged, never driven on salty roads, and has 106,940 miles – of which 440 miles have been put on since the 2005 engine rebuild. The car is started every month throughout the year, the oil is changed, and the current owner has never driven the car “hard,” wanting to get 1,000 or more miles on the engine rebuild before doing so.
This Corvette starts great, runs great, and has a fully-documented history. The windshield wipers do not work (the vacuum lift does) nor does the clock and radio.
About the C3 “chrome bumper” Corvettes
Corvette C3 “chrome bumper” Corvettes were built by Chevrolet from 1968 to 1972. The 1970 model year was only made for six months due to a strike at the factory and is the rarest of the “chrome bumper” years. 1970 was the last year for high compression, truly full output, and all out performance engines in Corvettes. The model years to follow were more at the mercy of insurance companies, fuel prices, and emission concerns. The 1970 Corvette saw the shortest production time and lowest production numbers for any year of "chrome bumper" Corvettes. Total production in 1970 was only 17,316, which was the lowest since 1962. A strike at General Motors caused the 1969 model year to run for an extra four months so production on the 1970 models did not start until January of 1970. The body shape in 1970 was improved with fender flares to reduce the damage from wheel thrown debris. Many enthusiasts prefer the more pronounced fender flare and wheel opening introduced this year. 1970 also introduced the iconic "egg-crate" grills on the side of the car, which were only used on Corvettes for three years and have become a symbol of the "chrome bumper" Corvettes. The interior saw subtle improvements including a redesigned seat for better headroom and better access to the storage area. Due to the rarity and performance capability of the 1970 model year, Corvettes of this vintage make for an excellent investment opportunity.
