1971 Chevrolet Corvette
This super C5 is ripe for the picking.
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!
Classic Car Overview
Here we have a 1971 Corvette featuring the optional LS5 454. Rated at 365 horsepower and a stout 460 pound-feet of torque, this powerhouse had no problem pinning the Corvettes occupants to the seats when the whip is cracked. Coupled with a 4-speed stick, the fun factor is increased even further. This car has that gearbox, which sends the power to a 3:36 rear end, along with a few other desirable options including A/C.
A folder full of receipts shows meticulous maintenance which includes new brakes and suspension components as well as a rebuilt transmission and restored interior with new seat foams as well as seat covers and door panels.
Originally finished in War Bonnet Yellow paint, this car now wears a respray in Classic White that still gleams. The body panels fit well and the chrome bumpers and various other bright trim pieces (including the brushed aluminum rocker panels) look great as well. The Rally wheels are likewise in nice condition and wear Firestone radials. Overall, the Corvette presents as a very nice driver-quality car.
Inside, the correctly recovered vinyl seats are supple with firm cushions and no scuffs or tears. The door panels, dash and carpeting are likewise in fine shape while an aftermarket center console armrest adds a bit of comfort. The factory-issued AM/FM stereo radio still resides in the center stack and the A/C blows ice-cold, thanks to a brand-new compressor. The car also comes with the covers for the T tops.
The original, numbers-matching engine and transmission are also still in the car. Although we cant say for certain, we believe the 78,567 miles showing on the odometer to be the actual mileage given the engines easy starting and the cars smooth, strong-running nature. Power steering and power disc brakes add to the ease of piloting this spirited Corvette. Run through the gears as you unravel a curvy back road and youll understand why people love these classic C3s; its hard to beat the fun per dollar factor.
