This 1971 Corvette hits all the high notes: a matching-numbers LS5 big block, gorgeous Mille Miglia red paint, and a very attractive price tag. While the early Stingrays with 427s get all the attention, if you're looking for a great-running 'Vette with a ton of power that doesn't foul its plugs in traffic, an LS5 is the hot ticket. The body on this Stingray was refinished in 2003 and still looks awesome. There are few cars that will attract more attention than a C3 with bright red paint, and definitely none that are more widely recognized. Roll up in this fantastic plastic and EVERYBODY notices. Of course, it doesn't hurt that the bodywork is super straight, with excellent prep over well-preserved original fiberglass that has never been damaged. Corvette fans are sticklers when it comes to doing it as the factory would have, so you'll appreciate the soft shine of the paint, which isn't too glossy like modern base/clear urethane, but more like the original enamel. Gaps are about as good as you can get on a C3, which again is a good thing for purists, and most fans prefer the chrome bumpers. And speaking of brightwork, the hood features a pair of chrome-rimmed nostrils, as well as a 454 badge, all the Stingray script emblems are in place, and the stainless rocker moldings have been polished to a high shine. This car's fastidious care throughout its life is most evident inside, where the 100% original interior remains in excellent condition. Yes, that's the optional code 403 black leather, not vinyl, and it remains supple and comfortable, with only minor signs of wear. It's not perfect, but rather comfortable and inviting, exactly the way you'd want your favorite car to look. There are no split seams, no scuffs, and certainly no sun damage, despite the T-tops overhead. The black carpets are similarly excellent, and the door panels match the seats with a comfortable, lived-in look. Other goodies include factory A/C, power windows, a modern AM/FM stereo with iPod connectivity, and those cool fiber-optic bulb indicators in the console. This Corvette is all about having your cake and eating it too. This car will also eat lesser machines on the road, thanks to the original, numbers-matching LS5 big block under the hood. With a very stout 365 horsepower, it's the smart choice for the guy who likes to drive his Corvette. Reliable and virtually indestructible, the LS5's wide torque band makes it the ideal powerplant for long-distance cruising. Nicely detailed with correct Chevy Orange paint on the block, the original air cleaner with chrome lid, and fresh plugs, wires, and hoses, it's ready to rumble. There's an upgraded cooling fan that makes a difference when you're running the A/C, and the TH400 3-speed automatic is the perfect dance partner. A new exhaust system sounds right, and the Rally wheels wear recent 255/60/15 BFGoodrich T/A radials. Loaded with options, this Corvette is begging for a long road trip this summer. Call today!
