The stunning lines of the early C-3 Corvette Stingray, absolutely one of the coolest and most iconic shapes to ever come out of the seventies!

This very honest Ontario Orange original example would be one of the most authentic unmolested examples of the breed we have seen for a very long time...

Clearly having been in dry storage under cover for many years with little use this Stingray is showing a mere 94k miles, and judging buy its overall very honest condition it would appear to be correct.

The body on this Corvette shows no obvious signs of previous repairs, with all of the bonding strips in place and un broken, and displaying a very authentic correct seventies Fibre glass body finish and appearance, not blocked flat with orange peel and modern paint like most of them now, and really is a very accurate honest example with nice shut lines and panel fitment, being refreshingly clean and tidy, and driving just as it looks.

A well speced example this Corvette got power steering and power brakes, electric windows, Tilt/Tele steering, a desirable four speed transmission, the trade mark T-Tops, full deluxe leather interior with the plush pile carpet, and deluxe wood grain trim, factory A/C (Not currently connected) and Astro ventilation with tinted glass, and a removable rear window.

Clearly a low mileage survivor this Stingray is still running on a set of period correct F-70 Red Walls which look fantastic wrapped around the correct rally wheels, and add to the period character of the car.

Clean paintwork in the impressive Ontario Orange hue which has recently been professionally buffed to a decent shine has only minor chipping and appears to have been on the car a very long time, still presenting very well, with clean original door shuts complete with a service sticker showing 84k miles in 1994, and the original VIN sticker still in place, while the engine compartment is refreshingly complete and un tampered with, with the original air cleaner and ignition shielding still in place, and is home to the original 350 engine which has recently been fully rebuilt due to standing for a long time.

The performance from the crisp small block is as it should be and even the automatic choke still works, the manual box shifts nicely, and the diff is nice and quiet, the original exhaust manifolds and a standard exhaust are a nice find too, and over all this would be a hard car to beat for genuine honest originality for the money.

A very nice example of a very cool car, this Corvette is sure to be a rewarding future investment as they seem to be getter harder and harder to find in original condition as time goes by, and iconic cars from this period are only going one way pricewise.....
