For sale is my 1969 Corvette. I have had this car for 17 years and it is time to finally sell it due to not having enough time to use it. I will try my best in describing the car in detail in the following description. Any question feel free to call 716-550-1628. If I do not answer. please leave a message and I will get back to you.


FIRST. the car is NOT a numbers matching original. I did not buy it like that and had no interest in such a vehicle. The person I bought it from 17 years ago did not have much information to give me other than it was living most of its life in PA and then southern NY.  


Paint/Body:


Originally the car was Monza Red. but I had it changed to a type of Blue. Unfortunately the painter did not listen to me and painted it a type of blue. that has a hue of purple in it depending on the light. It might look a nice rich blue. or a dark purple.  


The paint job is a 8 foot paint job. meaning from 8 feet away it looks good. This car is a driver and has a couple of scratches. that are not that noticeable to most people. but I can see it right away. The t-tops and after market hood. have typical gel coat spider cracking. again the painter assured me would not happen for many years. it has been 5.  


Seeing the motor does not create vacuum. the headlight need to be raised and lower manually.   There are electric conversions out there. but I could not see spending the over $800 to have something I have been doing for years.  

Almost all of the moulding has been replaced with quality aftermarket pieces. The bumpers have been rechromed about 7 years ago.


Engine:


Currently the engine is a 383 stroker with 10. 5:1 compression and mechanical roller cam. I cannot find the cam card anymore. but it has a lift of over . 700”. This motor has been built to be shifted at 7200 rpm. and has a single plane Holly Strip dominator intake on it. The heads are Airflow Research AFR 215 heads. 7qt miloden oil pan. I have had the valve springs replaced 2 years ago. to make sure I would not have any problems.  


Originally the setup had 1-7/8” headers. a 875cfm modified double pumper carb. and a msd set up. It was a bear to drive on the street all the time. so I detuned it a bit and put on a HEI distributor. 750 cdm vacuum secondary carb. and 1-5/8” headers. It seems to make it a little more tolerable when driving around.


Transmission/driveline:


When I bought the car it was a 4-sp manual. but latter. my knees could not keep up with the heavy mechanical clutch. so I switched to a TH-400 with a manual valve body. It is a built transmission that can handle anything you can throw at it. The rear end posi unit has been rebuilt 14 years ago along with all the trailing arm bearings and bushings. The rear end gear is a 3. 55. All ujoints are spicer branded.  


Chassis/brakes:


The car is a manual brake car with replace calipers. The brake lines are stainless steel braided lines. The car is a manual steering car with newer Moog ball joints. idler arm. and all tie rods. The sway bar links. and control arm bushings are poly urethane. energy suspension equipped. All of the shocks are Bilsteins. The front coil springs are rated for handling. and the rear is a fiberglass design with a high lb for better handling.  


The tires are BF Goodrich 255/60-r15 at all 4. The rims. and associated trim accessories are aftermarket. the car when I bought it had miss matching Cragar S/S which are long gone.


Interior:


I had gotten rid of the original gauges about 10 years ago. the milage on the original was in the 66000 range. I always loved the Auto-meter gauges. and on the new speedo. the odometer is only at a little after 1. I had a hard time finding the correct speedometer set up along with the cable. When I got the transmission. the shop neglected to put in the speedo cable pick up. and I had a hard time finding one. that was reasonably priced. I was able to now and the speedo does work. but I have not had the car on the road in a couple of years. The car does get driven on my property. it does not sit around. I am not sure on the accuracy of the speedo. the gear in the transmission may have to be changed.  


The seats. have been reupholstered to a vinyl leather simulation. The carpet has been redone and installed with in the last year.   The seat belts are original for this car. the shoulder belt and the lap belts all work.  


The radio is a custom auto sound unit that has a aux input for headphone jack.  


Seeing I drive this car in nice weather. I had a leaky heater core and decided to take out all of the HVAC in this car. I didn't see the need to have it. The controls are still in place along with the wiring. but the heater hoses and the heater control valve are gone.


The manual crank windows work as intended. and go fully all the way up and down with no issues. I did replace the weather stripping last year around the doors.




Asking price is $15. 00/BO. I would like to sell my car. I do not NEED to sell it. so please don't waste either of our times and low ball a offer. $250 deposit is required at time of commitment of purchase. which is non refundable. unless I am contacted and some sort of an agreement could be met.  


This posting can be cancelled at any time due to me selling the car locally.  


Shipping: The car is located in Wheatfield. NY (between Buffalo and Niagara Falls. NY) I have the car in my garage. and I unfortunately have no means of trailering it to any destination. One would have to come to my property and pick up the vehicle.
