Description

$65K INVESTED, RARE BODY, 350 V8, 4 SPD M21, A/C, 2 TOPS, LOADED, NUT/BOLT RESTO

Welcome to the WOW factor. This is a custom 1971 Chevrolet Corvette widebody that looks lightning quick and has the motor to back it up.

All third-generation Corvettes look mean on the streets, but this one is downright menacing. The shark-like fixed racing headlights and the C7 stingray emblems make this Corvette a true street predator. The storied Greenwood style widebody kit has added custom touches such as the updated front end from later C3 models and the whale tail that rivals the Porsche 911 Turbo. While this was added on decades ago, it all feels very fresh and new. That's because in 2012, this highly customized Corvette went in for a complete frame-off restoration. With over $65K invested, it came out the other end with the kind of surperior panel fit that just was never seen on the widebody kits back in the day. Plus, this one was given a red and black vinyl wrap. Now you can have the cool modern matte finish appearance without the exceptional hassle of maintaining the finicky matte paint.

Step inside and it is the unmistakable cool of a C3 Corvette convertible. Treated to the same high-quality workmanship that's evident throughout the car, everything is just as it was in 1971...or better! This means the full gauge package on the center console is in perfect working order, the carpets are brand new, the soft top was overhauled, and the high-back bucket seats are grand touring comfortable. It also has modern style with items like the AM/FM/CD player and the new C7 stingray embedded on the center console. This is a premium car, and so it has power everything – power brakes, power windows, power steering, etc. Plus, it has ice-cold air conditioning so you can keep your cool no matter where you go on a hot summer day.

While the appearance of this Corvette is impressive, it's what's under the hood that makes all the difference. This is a 350 cubic-inch LT1 V8 that has been blueprint balanced, and includes forged pistons, rods, and crank. Its been upgraded with performance parts such as a Holley 650 cfm carburetor, aluminum intake, MSD electronic ignition, and an increasingly rare Sig Erson performance camshaft. There is also a set of Hooker headers that make an intimidating rumble as they send gasses out of the side pipe exhaust. We could try to list all the upgrades, but even just the Baldwin-Motion components take up too much space! Instead, we'll cut to the chase; this Corvette produces an honest 350 hp. All that power runs through a close-ratio four-speed Muncie M-20 manual transmission with Hurst shifter, clutch, and pressure plate. It gets to the pavement through a 3.73 Positraction rear end that's good for both acceleration and top speed. Handling is also not a problem thanks to competition-style four-wheel disc brakes and wide BF Goodrich T/A radials riding on retro-cool ARE wheels. But before you go for a drive, stick your head under this car. Notice how clean it is? That's because there's been less than 300 miles put on the drivetrain since its nut-n-bolt restoration.

All Corvettes are cool, but it will be hard to find another drop top this memorable. It's time for you to catch this Stingray and remind everyone else that they're fishing with lesser cars. Call now!!
