When the original owner was in the showroom picking out this 1971 Corvette, he checked nearly every box on the options list. From the brutal LS5 under the hood, to A/C and power windows, to a factory alarm system, this loaded 'Vette is one of the most heavily optioned we've ever seen. A recent repaint restored the Mille Miglia Red bodywork to better-than-new condition, cloaking the dramatic Corvette curves in the ultimate Corvette color. They spent a lot of time and effort on the fiberglass, getting all the gaps to line up just so, making sure the big block hood fit flush, and generally smoothing all the surfaces with far more care than the factory could afford. The result is a great shine and eyeball-searing color that glows in the sunlight and shows no sign of stress cracks anywhere on the body. The delicate chrome bumpers have been refinished and fitted snugly against the fiberglass, and new headlight door actuators were installed so the headlights snap to attention every time the switch is pulled. Correct badges and fresh taillight lenses add to the sharp look. The standard black bucket seat interior was the overwhelming choice of Corvette buyers in 1971, and in this car's case, it's all new. New seat covers, fresh door panels, and correct carpets with the right weave and nap have been fitted, and as I mentioned, it's loaded with options. There is, of course, A/C, but you'll also find a tilt wheel, power windows, power brakes, and power steering, all of which make this car a true pleasure to drive. All the gauges, including the clock, have been rebuilt and work properly, and the factory 4-speed slips through the gates courtesy of the original shifter. A newer AM/FM/cassette stereo has been fitted in the dash, giving you a lot more options than the original AM unit, and you'll be delighted to know that all-new vacuum lines have been fitted, saving you that particular headache-inducing job. The engine is a warranty replacement LS5 big block. The date code is correct for an engine replaced in '71, and the original engine's intake, carburetor, and tinwork were all transferred to the new 454 long block. It was rebuilt about 6000 miles ago, and given a few upgrades along the way, plus chrome valve covers and an open element air cleaner (the original pieces are included with the car). There's a new HEI distributor, a big BeCool aluminum radiator, and a stainless steel exhaust system underneath. The brakes have been augmented with stainless steel calipers, and as a lifelong southern car, you'll be able to tell for yourself with one look at the frame. Out back, a new gas tank and fuel lines have been fitted, and as a result, this fully sorted Corvette starts instantly and pulls like a freight train. Bright Rally wheels were standard-issue, and wear fat 255/60/15 white-letter radials. This highly-documented Corvette is exactly what you want: fully sorted, beautiful to look at, comfortable to drive, all at a reasonable price. Call today!
