Every once in a while a wide-eyed guest will stare at one of our six-figure pro-touring Corvettes and turn to us and say: "That's nice, ut it's not really a vintage car anymore". And while we love ANY Corvette no matter what the owner's intentions, e can definitely understand that mindset. For purists, he only way to fully appreciate a vintage car is to experience it as it was originally designed. And that's why we're happy to see classics like this Fathom Green C3 continue to roll through our showroom. Carefully restored for NCRS competition, nd presently churning a top-option L89/4-speed drivetrain, his first class drop-top is the kind of car that you simply buy, aintain and build equity in.

Take a close look at the body of this striking Stingray and you'll find aesthetics that are completely accurate to how the car left St. Louis's storied assembly lines. Thanks to a 3-year, ody-off restoration, hat clean fuselage features even gaps which suggest a sharp eye toward precision.

And, hile many collectors think Rally Red is the quintessential Corvette pigment, e think you'll agree that nothing comes close to a well-done Fathom roadster!


Beneath the sculpted hood you'll find a correct, 27 cubic inch big block that hangs a 3963512 casting number and June (F) 14th (14) 1969 (9) casting date behind a familiar Tonawanda (T) assembly stamp. Straight from the factory, M's top-option L89 (LP) V8 utilized high performance internals to twist stout 11 to 1 compression into an even 435 horsepower! At the peak of the pavement-scorching mill, polished and decaled air cleaner swirls wind in to a correct Winters intake by way of correct Holley carburetors. At the sides of that intake, orrect aluminum heads hang stamped and polished valve covers over cast iron exhaust manifolds. And at the back of those heads, hrome-capped ignition sequences spark through sleeved plug wires. When fired, he infamous 427 rumbles like an old school stoplight slayer. Its ancillary components are top notch in every way, ith GM-branded hoses, rust-free master cylinder and a correct Harrison expansion tank accompanying reproduction tower clamps, fresh radiator and a rebuilt alternator.

At the base of that dash, tapered console frames a factory shifter. Below that console, ranslucent floor mats protect like-new carpet. At the edges of that carpet, eather-free door panels hang simple stainless hardware in front of factory power windows.
