We are excited to offer for sale this gorgeous example of a 3rd Generation Corvette. Finished in the original color combination of Donnybrooke Green over Saddle, this car is in excellent condition and features a numbers matching 390 horsepower 454ci V8, 4 speed manual transmission, T-Tops, 69k original miles, and an interior that shows extremely well.
Being an early Third generation Corvette, this car has a nice bit of contrast with the chrome bumpers front and rear. The underside of the car is very clean with a rust-free frame. Also of note is that the Vacuum operated headlights work just the way they should, and the body colored T-Tops fit just right. The car still wears the original shade of Donnybrooke Green on the exterior (Code 982), and thanks to a repaint approximately 10 years ago the paint looks beautiful.
The interior trim is finished in the factory original color of 'Saddle' vinyl (Code 414). Once in the driver's seat, it's easy to see the awesome condition that the interior upholstery is in. Seats, door panels, gauges, dashboard, even the “pouches” on the passenger's side dashboard are all in superb condition. An AM/FM/Cassette player is mounted just below the factory auxiliary gauges, just past that shiny gear knob.
This car left the factory with a 454ci/390hp V8, which is indicated by the cowl 454 hood and plaque at the base of the shift knob. What an awesome combination in a legendary sports car! Paired with a Muncie M21 4-speed manual transmission, and a positraction rear end with 3.70:1 gears, the new owner of this Vette will have a great setup to enjoy. The engine bay has been kept tidy over the years, and that 454 powerplant makes a great sound when going through the gears!
This handsome early-3rd generation Corvette has been very well cared for over the years and always garage kept. Be sure to check out all the photos and video on our main website: Garage Kept Motors. Call if interested or e-mail with any questions. Thank you for looking.
