1969 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray
1969 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray
I guess I must be dumb
'Cause you had a pocket full of horses
Trojan and some of them used
But it was Saturday night
I guess that makes it all right
And you say, "what have I got to lose?"
And honey, I say
Little red Corvette
Baby, you're much too fast, oh
Little red Corvette
You need a love that's gonna last…
1969 Corvette Stingray…check! 427ci Edelbrock tunnel ram…check! Dual Holley 600's…check! Side pipes….check! Excellent Fiberglass….check! Hand Stitched Leather Seats…..check! Now it's time to CHECK! this car out! This fine example has had only 1 owner since new! Over 200 trophies, and definitely one of a kind in looks and performance, right here for the checking out in the hallowed halls of Classic Auto Mall. The dinner bell is ringing for someone..
Our consigner took his original purchase and bumped it up a bit, well…maybe more I'd say with starting out by cutting a hole in the hood, then making sure all surfaces of the original fiberglass were cared for and any potential blemishes and holes etc removed and filled in with fiberglass. It was then bathed in red that just bleeds of beauty. Miles deep shine and perfectly aligned curves come together to form what this writer thinks is the nicest Corvette model ever made! All that red is made even better with shiny chrome bumpers and grille surrounds in front, some vertical “gills” for the front quarters, and of course those snarling side pipes which run the gamut of the rockers. Stainless edges a new windshield and the T top framing which presents perfectly with its shine and rubber surrounds, with red panels that fit like gloves. These float above flying buttress style B pillars which have a vertical rear glass inserted, and these buttresses make their way gracefully descending to the rear deck. At the very rear of this car, a slight upward reaching “wave' forms a slight spoiler if you will, and then drops vertically to the ground and houses the round taillights and “eyebrow” style rear shiny bumpers. The stance this car gives you is to die for, as is the total shine of all immaculate surfaces on the exterior of this car. Also, not to be left out are the uber chromed and polished Cragar SS wheels wrapped in raised white letter rubber all around. In the dictionary under the word shine, is this car's picture!
A swing of the doors and shake hands with some smooth and perfectly fitted dark gray leather door panels with a small ribbed broadcloth insert for some padding to comfort the arms. Simple but effective high back leather buckets in gray, with tuck and roll inserts and smooth bolsters and a nice headrest on top, are the two seats available. Racing up the middle is the console in gray, housing the handbrake, power window toggles, some small warning lights, the chromed T style Hurst shifter, and climate control wheels and fan toggle. Moving upward still in the center is the original radio (AM/FM), a cluster of 5 important gauges and on top why windshield wiper switch. In front of the driver are dual deep set circular analog gauges just as clean as a whistle. Fronting this near perfect dash is an original steering wheel. All this interior floats in a calm sea of black carpeting that is available for your toes to wiggle onto when you flip in in your bare feet. Also the rear storage is lined with perfect carpeting.
Hold your breath when popping the hood because it will be soon taken away otherwise, with this stunning all chromed engine sitting in a jet black shiny surrounding engine bay. Every surface shines brightly, and if you are interested it is a 427ci V8 which is noted as a warranty replacement block from 1969-1970 according to its numbers. On top is a polished Edelbrock tunnel ram with dual Holley 600cfm 4-barrel carbs. In back is a numbers matching Muncie M21 4-speed manual transmission which pushes power to the back axle seen in 4.11 posi configuration. This engine bay is a study in detail and attention to it which is what we can call mint condition.
Not to be outdone by the top side, the bottom end of this car is showroom. A custom airbrushed tire cover is on the bottom just below a new fuel tank. All beautifully painted black suspension and structural metal, dances with chromed suspension and other parts peppering the underside. Polished headers and piping sales its way to either side where they blend together and make the side pipes and eventual sound the is music to the “autophile's” (sic) ears. Power disc brakes are all around now, and fiberglass leaf spring suspension is seen for some weight loss..(to make up for all the weight the chroming process has added!)
A quick start with a monstrous roar, and we are off to the test track. Here all I can say is everything is working just wonderfully, and it is a goer as well as a shower!
A great work of automotive art creating the final sculpture of a 1969 Corvette Stingray. All excellent surfaces and finishes, no stone left unturned, one of the finest examples of this model year you'll run into, but it won't last long because it's wicked fast!
