Are you in the market for a chrome bumper C3 corvette, but are having a tough time deciding whether you want a show stopper or a driver? Why not settle for both? Your search might be over with this beautiful War Bonnet Yellow 1971 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray. While it isn't restored to perfection, this is a mechanically sound driver's car that is sure to turn heads any where you go. She's a turn key cruiser that won't complain when you hit the open road!

Under the hood is a 350 V8; the classic choice for anything Chevrolet muscle. Having seen proper maintenance under its current owner, this car is truly ready to hit the road. The idea behind this particular car was to have a Corvette that not only looked good, but could be driven without worry. A modern A/C system is a welcome addition for comfortable cruising. Outfitted with four-wheel power disc brakes and a TH400 transmission, this Corvette is the perfect blend of factory correct and functional upgrades!

But it didn't stop in just the engine bay, glance at the underneath pictures and you'll find an equally well-maintained undercarriage. While it is showing some age, as this is an older restoration, everything is accessible and appears to be in serviceable condition. The glorious small block engine note is provided courtesy of a dual exhaust system. This Corvette rumbles, but has a nice tone and isn't droning or deafening at speed. Truly, this is a perfect cruising car!

The car was repainted in the factory War Bonnet Yellow color and it shows well. You may spot a minor imperfection here or there, but that is the intended nature of this car—you can park it worry free! The War Bonnet Yellow is not a common color, and looks phenomenal on the body lines a Stingray has to offer. This is both a breathtaking and unique color that is sure to stand out in a crowd—even a crowd of Corvettes! Though it appears to be an older repaint, it still shows well and looks slick.

Pop open the doors and you'll find an interior that sticks strictly to the original theme. The carpet has been replaced recently, and the seats and door panels are in excellent driver-quality condition. The overall fit and finish is great! Similar to the exterior, you may find a small imperfection here or there, but again this car was built for and used as a fun driver for any occasion. The only noticeable change from factory original is the addition of a RetroSound radio that provides modern conveniences with an original appearance.

If you are looking for a 100% original car that transports you back to the dealership went it arrived new... this probably isn't the car for you. However, if you are looking for a gorgeous little Vette that has been built to be a comfortable any time you want driver, this may just check all the boxes! Don't let her looks fool you; she was built to be driven! Don't miss out on your chance to own this collectible automobile!
