HIGHLIGHTS: Numbers matching big block, 4-speed, restored 1971 Corvette! Beautiful factory correct Brands Hatch Green over saddle leather interior; classy Corvette! Cold factory A/C, modern radio, and much more.

BODY OVERVIEW: The body on this Corvette is very straight, and showing minimal wear. For you seasoned Corvette buyers, the bonding strips can still be felt from within the fenders. This car is the perfect vehicle to cruise with care and to take to local events.

PAINT CONDITION OVERVIEW: Paint is gorgeous and has a depth that can only be achieved by this shade of green. The factory correct 983 paint code “Brands Hatch Green” paint looks stunning on the C3 body and while there are some minor touch ups and light scratches here and there, it still looks fantastic in the sunlight. The green really gives this C3 a unique look!

INTERIOR CONDITION OVERVIEW: The interior is in great shape and is showing the expected minimal wear for a restored car that has been driven. Far from needing any work, the factory correct leather saddle colored interior is a wonderful contrast to the exterior green and gives this Corvette an air of luxury. One notable change is the addition of a modern stereo, so that you can listen to your favorite tunes while cruising along!

MECHANICAL OVERVIEW: Powering this corvette is the factory numbers matching big block. The stamp pad wears the correct CPH LS5 365HP Suffix and is followed by the correct partial vin. This Corvette fires up with ease; quite impressive for a big block! Even when cold, a bump of the key will cause this 454 to spring to life. It runs smoothly, has just the right exhaust note for a C3 Corvette, and has more than enough power to have some fun. The A/C blows cold and the transmission shifts smoothly!

WHAT YOU'LL LOVE ABOUT THIS CAR: The numbers matching big block and the gorgeous interior/exterior contrast.

WHAT YOU MIGHT HATE ABOUT THIS CAR: If you're looking for a 100 percent show car, this is probably not the car for you.

DOES IT NEED ANYTHING? The distributor has been upgraded to an HEI. Which is great, but the rpm cable now doesn't fit correctly, which means the RPM gauge isn't working.

WHAT BUYER IS LOOKING FOR THIS CAR? Anyone looking for a numbers-matching big-block C3 Corvette at an affordable price should have this 1971 Corvette at the top of their list!
