Description

ACTUAL MILES, #'S MATCHING 350 V8, AUTO TRANS, BEAUTIFUL RED COLOR, CLEAN IN/OUT

Lots of horsepower and lots of eyeball appeal, this low ownership 1970 Corvette roadster delivers. Packing a strong-running rebuilt small block and a great paint job, this is a Sting Ray that neatly balances style, performance, and desirability. Forget trailer queens, this is a car you won't be able to resist on the road.

Restored using its original Monza Red, there's just nothing like a bright red Sting Ray ragtop to attract attention. I don't care who you are or where you go, there's just no way you'll be missed in this car. The bodywork is quite straight, the paint is fresh (approximately 6 years old), glossy, and deep, and it has that look of a Corvette that has been enjoyed, but never abused. The way the light plays over those voluptuous fenders in an unbroken curve is proof that someone invested a good amount of time getting everything straight, and the smooth, shiny finish is evidence of excellent care since the restoration was completed. The headlights pop up without hesitation and the rear deck fits well, making the top disappear seamlessly. Bright chrome bumpers add some jewelry, along with the new-for-1970 egg crate grills up front and on the front fenders, and big, rectangular exhaust tips strongly suggest that there's some serious blasting powder under the hood.

Code 407 red vinyl bucket seat covers have been recently installed and combined with 1970's newly contoured buckets that offered improved lateral support, they hold you in place better than before. The seats remain in excellent condition, giving the interior a welcoming, casual look that says, "Let's go for a ride!" Slide behind the wheel and your hand falls naturally to the center console's automatic shifter, and as your eyes roam over the interior, you notice details like the AM/FM radio fiber-optic lamp monitoring system, and the spec plaque right there on the console. The gauges are in great condition like the rest of the interior, with the tach showing a correct 5500 RPM redline and all the auxiliary gauges (sans the clock) work like they should. Overhead, there's a black convertible top that's very nice and a color-matched removable hardtop is included with the car.

The engine is a very strong, rebuilt 350 cubic inch V8, put together back to factory specs in 2005. It is very clean and dressed for show, and it looks like a performance engine bathed in Chevy Orange paint with finned valve covers and correct chrome air cleaner and ignition shielding. The intake and carburetor are also original to this C3 and certainly help bolster the originality, and even the factory A/C system looks tidy, although it will require a service. Power steering allows for better handling on the road, and a disc brake at every corner is a C3 standard. Underneath, it's quite clean, with satin black floors and a dual exhaust system that bellows that unmistakable Corvette rumble. For a correct look, it rolls on Rallys wearing 225/70/15 BFGoodrich T/A performance radials with plenty of life left.

For a Corvette that's built to drive, this bright red convertible hits a lot of high notes and offers an interesting pedigree. Owned by the same enthusiast since 1979, this Southern roadster only has 70,552 actual miles, so it has plenty of decades of top-down fun left in it. Is it not time you finally stopped watching from the sidelines and got into the hobby? Call today!
