Chevrolet Corvette 1970 Description

Lots of horsepower and lots of eyeball appeal, his 1970 Corvette roadster delivers. Packing a strong-running small block and a 4-speed, his is a Sting Ray that neatly balances style, erformance, nd desirability. Forget trailer queens, his is a car you won't be able to resist on the road.Restored using something close to Monza Red, here's just nothing like a bright red Sting Ray ragtop to attract attention. I don't care who you are or where you go, here's just no way you'll be missed in this car. The bodywork is quite straight, he paint is fresh, lossy, nd deep, nd it has that look of a Corvette that has been enjoyed, ut 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, nd the smooth, hiny finish is evidence of excellent care since the restoration was completed. The headlights pop up without hesitation and the rear deck fits well, aking the top disappear seamlessly. Bright chrome bumpers add some jewelry, long with the new-for-1970 egg crate grills up front and on the front fenders, nd big, ectangular exhaust tips strongly suggest that there's some serious blasting powder under the hood.Code 400 black vinyl bucket seat covers have been recently installed, nd combined with 1970's newly contoured buckets that offered improved lateral support, hey hold you in place better than before. The seats remain in excellent condition, iving the interior a welcoming, asual look that says, Let's go for a ride!" Slide behind the wheel and your hand falls naturally to the 4-speed's big, hrome shifter, nd as your eyes roam over the interior, ou notice details like the upgraded AM/FM radio fiber-optic lamp monitoring system, nd the spec plaque right there on the console. The gauges are in above-average condition, ith the tach showing a correct 6000 RPM redline and all the auxiliary gauges work like they should. Overhead, here's a black convertible top that's so fresh the tag is still attached and a color-matched removable hardtop is included with the car.The engine is a very strong 350 cubic inch V8, nd if the decal on the air cleaner is to be believed, t's rated at 370 horsepower. Combined with the 6000 RPM redline on the tachometer, t strongly suggests that this is a real LT1 car, lthough we do not believe this is the original engine. However, t is expertly rebuilt and dressed for show, nd it looks like a performance engine bathed in Chevy Orange paint with finned valve covers and correct chrome air cleaner and ignition shielding. An aluminum intake and big Holley carburetor certainly help bolster the big horsepower claims and there are manual brakes, gain indicative of an LT1 (the LT1 engine didn't make enough vacuum for power brakes). Underneath, t's quite clean, ith satin black floors and a recent dual exhaust system and shock absorbers. For a correct look, t rolls on Rallys wearing 225/70/15 Falken performance radials with plenty of life left.For a Corvette that's built to drive, his bright red convertible hits a lot of high notes and offers an interesting pedigree.
