Seven Hills Motorcars is glad to offer this beautiful 1969 Corvette Convertible in wonderful driver condition with only 77,765 original miles. This Corvette looks fantastic, runs great, and is an excellent driver. It is totally solid with great lines and absolutely no rust issues. 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. The low original mileage is verified not only by the condition of the car, but also the clear Ohio title showing the mileage as "Actual." Please peruse all of the photos, video, and information below to get a true sense of how nice and clean this Corvette really is.

Beside the Convertible body style, this Stingray is absolutely loaded with highly desirable options like air conditioning, power steering, power brakes, tilt/telescopic steering column, and front fender louver trim.

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.

 

condition

 
 

Exterior

The Classic White exterior is in excellent driver condition. As one can see in the photos the finish has a terrific gloss, deep shine, and smooth finish. The rally wheels have a brilliant finish and no curb rash. The Cooper Cobra tires have about 90% tread left. The soft top is literally brand new and still has the tag on it by the rear window. The rear window itself is crystal clean and not yellow or cloudy at all. There are no major blemishes that have been excluded from the photos. There are some small imperfections and touch-ups around the car that were too faint to show up in the photos, but nothing that is really noticeable from about five or ten feet away. As one can see in the many photos of the underside of the car, it is very clean underneath and this Corvette has absolutely NO RUST ISSUES. We have included specific photos of the areas most prone to rust. The frame is totally solid with no rust around the "key hole" are in front of the rear tire and I have seen no evidence of corrosion around the windshield, which are the two most notorious spots for rust on a C3 Corvette.

 

Interior

The Black interior in this Stingray is in outstanding condition. The seats are in excellent 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; there are no cracks in the typical spot where the driver's elbow sits. The door pulls are solid and intact. The dash and console look good with no sun fading. There is a small cracked spot on the left side of the dash. The original radio works and most importantly the dash has never been cut or modified for an aftermarket installation. 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.


Mechanical

This Corvette seems to be in good mechanical condition. It 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 throughout the power band. Also, the engine compartment is beautifully clean and detailed.

The radio works as do all the exterior lights, wipers, and indicators. The blower for the heater works on all speeds. The a/c works and blows cold, one can observe the a/c compressor clicking on and engaging properly in the video. The vacuum system for the headlights works from both of its respective switches on the dash and the override switch under the steering column. The headlights go up quickly, evenly, and with no binding in the mechanism. The entire operation of the headlights can be viewed in the video. The problematic wiper door has been replaced with a hood from a later C3 Corvette. All of the gauges work with the obvious exception of the clock. Some of the fiber optics work. The horn does not work. The car seems to drive like it may have a lower rear end gear and the speedo reads high. The car could probably use a basic tune-up and is a bit lethargic of the line, but drive just as well as it does in the video. Not enough can be said as to how much of a pleasure it is to drive this car, especially with the top down on a beautiful day.

A note 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 Condition

 

Overall, this 1969 Corvette is in great driver condition. Convertible examples in this year range are draw a nice premium over a standard Corvette Coupe. 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 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 minimal effort.

 

Thank you for looking and please do not hesitate to email or call with any questions.
