Seven Hills Motorcars is
proud to offer this
beautiful 1969 L46 Corvette Convertible in fantastic driver condition with
a high performance ZZ4 crate engine from GM. This Corvette looks fantastic, runs great, and is an
excellent driver. The ZZ4 engine is much more powerful than the
stock engine and really adds to the performance of this Stingray. It is finished in the beautiful and
desirable color combination of Aztec Silver(986) over Gunmetal Gray
Vinyl (416). This is the correct and original color scheme as
verified by the codes on the trim tag. Gunmetal Gray is a very rare
interior color, this is only the second Stingray we have every had
with this interior.
We are offering an
excellent opportunity to own a very desirable Corvette model at an
unbeatable value. The market on C3 "chrome bumper" Corvettes
from 1968 to 1972 is absolutely red hot right now and on the
rise; one could easily buy this car now and sell it for more
than the purchase price in years to come. Please peruse
all of the photos, video, and information below to get a true sense
of how nice and clean this Corvette really is.
The previous owner of this Stingray is a jet engine mechanic
who recently retired from American Airlines. We actually
purchased two Corvettes from this gentleman in Nashville,
TN. We purchased this 1969 Stingray Convertible along with a
1971 Stingray Coupe in Flame Orange over black and also with
a crate engine. He was a true Corvette enthusiast with other
Stingrays in his collection along with many other classic
cars. This Corvette rolled off the assembly line on July 9,
The previous owner, being an airline mechanic,
was very meticulous and kept very detailed records on both
of the Corvettes we bought. There are dozens and dozens of
receipts, pictured below, for maintenance and restoration work competed on
this car over the years. The receipts total over $5,600,
which does not even include the cost of the ZZ4 crate engine
or the paintjob. This Stingray has all the benefits of the
better performance, reliability, durability, and speed from
the ZZ4 GM crate engine.
As a side note, this Corvette is not a dealer auction vehicle.
We hand pick each car after careful inspection. Our
Corvettes come from owners who expect their car to go to someone
that will give the vehicle the same care and attention as they did.
We invite and encourage you to examine the car in person or have the
car inspected. Please take the time to scrutinize each
picture. We photograph each vehicle to the greatest extent so
you can feel confident about your purchase. If you have a
question about the Corvette, just give us a call.
Silver exterior is in good driver condition. As one can see in
the photos the finish has a terrific gloss, deep shine, and
smooth finish. The chrome looks great overall. The rally wheels have a brilliant finish and the
beauty rings are the correct and original 4-clip style, not the
cheap foreign replacements. The Kelly Charger tires have
about 90% tread left and are correctly sized 225/70R15. The soft top operates well. The
rear window is perfectly clear and not yellow or cloudy. There are no major
blemishes that have been excluded from the photos. There are
some small imperfections around the car with some
specific photos below and some that were
too faint to show up in the photos, but nothing else that is really
noticeable from about five or ten feet away. We would encourage
any perspective buyer to view this car in person is possible. As one can see in
the many photos of the underside of the car, it is very clean
have included specific photos of the areas most prone to rust.
The frame is totally solid with no rust around the "key hole"
area in front of the rear tire, which is the most
common spot for rust on a C3 Corvette.
Gunmetal interior in this Stingray is in outstanding
condition. The seats are in nice shape with no split
seams, rips, or excessive wear. The carpet is also in
fantastic condition with no holes, rips, or major stains.
This includes the rear carpet, which is often neglected. The
gauge faces are crisp and clean and the lenses are clear.
The door panels are in terrific shape and the left panel is
not worn in the typical spot where the driver's elbow sits. The door pulls are
solid and intact. The dash and console look awesome with no
cracks or sun fading. The radio in the car sounds good and
most importantly it is Corvette specific unit made just for
this car so the dash has never been cut or modified for an
The car has a jack and the spare is still with the car. This
Corvette has never been smoked in; there are no burns marks
and no aroma of cigarettes. Corvette interiors from this era
are not known to wear well, and the excellent condition of
this interior is a huge testament to the meticulous care and
attention this car has received throughout its life.
Corvette seems to be in very good mechanical condition. As
stated above there are over $5,600 in receipts that go with the
car. As one would expect from a modern motor, the ZZ4 crate
engine starts right away every time, runs well, and idles
smooth. It drives great and feels nice on the road and at
highway speeds. In the video below one can observe the car
accelerating on the highway up to about 70mph, shifting through
all the gears, braking to stoplight, and going through some
curves. Please note that there are no vibrations or strange
noises and the car performs quite well overall. The brakes are
responsive and do not pull to one side or the other. The
transmission shift well, does not pop out of gear, and the
clutch feels good. Also, the
engine compartment is beautifully clean and detailed.
radio works as do all the exterior lights, wipers, and indicators. The blower for the heater works on all speeds.
The entire vacuum system for the headlights and wiper door works
correctly from both their respective switches on the dash and
the override switches. They go up quickly, evenly, and with no
binding in the mechanism. The entire operation from both
switches can be viewed in the video. All of the gauges work with the obvious
exception of the clock. The horn does not work. Some of the fiber optics work. Not
enough can be said as to how much of a pleasure it is to drive
this car, especially with the extra power from the ZZ4 and the top down on a beautiful day.
on the fiber optic light monitoring system. We
consistently receive many questions about the purpose of
this system; exactly what it is and what it does. The
sole and main idea behind the fiber optic light
monitoring system is to simply confirm that all of the
exterior lights, headlights, indicators, tail lights,
etc., are working and to make the driver aware of a a
burned out bulb. Each lamp on the outside of the car has
an actual fiber optic cable the runs to an indicator on
the center console. There are nine small indicators on
the console and each has its own finer optic cable. When
the bulb goes on the light travels through the fiber
optic cable and illuminates the corresponding indicator
on the console. If someone does not remember to plug the
cable end into the lamp housing, does any work to the
center console, or if there is a break in a connection
or anywhere along the cable, that indicator no longer
works. As one can image, over time this is very common.
Overall, this 1969 Corvette is in
great driver condition. The high performance ZZ4 crate
engine definitely adds to the value of this car and
preforms better than any other small block available
from Chevrolet in 1969. This Stingray is a great value and we
have it priced to sell. In my opinion and based on our
experience the "Chrome Bumper" cars from 1968-1972 are
the most collectible and hottest in the entire Corvette
market right now. The speedometer works fine as one can
see in the video, but the odometer does not work. There
is a key for the ignition and no key for the doors. We
can provide a door key for the new owner for an
additional $200. The value of these cars has gone up
exponentially in recent years. They are all solid
investments for a collector. While this is not an NCRS
Top Flight or Bloomington Gold car, it is a very nice
driver quality Corvette and a great car for the money.
One could easily enjoy this vehicle for several years
and sell it for more than the purchase price with
