about our dealership
Seven Hills Motorcars is Cincinnati's premier Corvette specialist and a licensed and registered auto dealer by the State of Ohio.  With many years of focused experience I specialize in 1957 to 1982 Corvettes.  There is no other dealership that can better meet your needs if you would like to buy, sell, or just find out more information about your Corvette.  This is simply a one man operation, and this is not my full time employment.  I do it because I enjoy it.  I am a collector and enthusiast and therefore look for cars that excite me.  I do not purchase at dealer auctions; each car is hand picked by me because it is special or rare to me and because I like it.

vehicle description

 

 

Seven Hills Motorcars is very proud to offer this numbers matching 1969 Corvette 4-Speed that is an excellent driver and priced to sell.  The car looks great, runs great, and is a blast to drive.  This is an excellent opportunity to own a very desirable Corvette at an unbeatable value.  One could easily buy this car now and sell it for more than the purchase price with minimal work and effort.  The low mileage is supported by the clear Ohio title, pictured below, showing the mileage as "actual."  Please peruse all of the photos and numbers below to get a true sense of how clean and nice this Corvette really is.

As a side note, this Corvette is not a dealer auction vehicle.  Our Corvettes come from owners who expect their cars 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.

 

numbers

 
 

Please note when checking the numbers that not only do the correct stampings and casting numbers appear on the parts, but all of the dates are also chronologically correct.  This means that all of the parts were made and assembled in the correct order.  For example, all of the dates for the individual engine components and the engine casting date should obviously precede the assembly date of the engine because the parts had to be produced before they could be assembled.  All of the parts I checked follow this rule and are dated correctly.

condition

 
 

Exterior

The black exterior is in nice driver condition.  As one can see in the photos the finish has dazzling gloss, deep shine, and smooth finish.  Often Corvettes will have particularly chipped up front ends, this car does not.  The underside of the front end, a very fragile part of the car, is in great condition as evidenced by the photos.  The chrome bumpers and other bight work on the car looks to be in good driver condition with no notable rust or pitting.  The alignment of the front edge of the hood is not perfect, there is a specific photo of the area below.  There are no major imperfections that have been excluded from the photos.  There are some small cracks and other blemishes that were too faint to show up in photos, but nothing that is really stands out from five or ten feet away.  The tires are in nice shape with about 80% tread left.

Please note that all of the glass on this car is original.  The windshield, "Astro Ventilation" door glass, and even the pop-out rear window are date coded and correct as each piece predate the car's body build date of July 2, 1969 (L02).   Original glass is a good indication that this car has had no major accident history and never sustained significant damage.

 

Interior

The interior of this Corvette is in good condition.  The seats are not overly worn and look in person just as they do in the photos.  The carpet is also in excellent condition with no stains, tears, or holes.  This includes the rear carpet with is often neglected.  The door panels are in good condition and, unlike many Corvettes of this age, they fit well to the door.  The car has not been smoked in, there are no burn marks or aroma what so ever.  The t-top storage bags are also included with the car. 


Mechanical

This car is in good mechanical condition.  The car starts right away every time, idles well, runs well.  This Corvette is a nice driver that is smooth on the road and at highway speeds.  There is no smoke when starting or driving the car.  The brakes are responsive.  Also, the engine compartment is nicely detailed as one can see in the photos.  This Corvette has plenty of power and is very fast.  The clutch feels good.  The shifter works okay and is totally functional, but it seems like it could use some adjustments and service overall.  Sometimes it takes a bit of extra effort to get the car into and out of reverse.  It does have some play in the steering.  It looks like the car could also benefit from an alignment.  There is a crack on the underside of the hood above the prop.  The fan for the heater works on all settings.  All of the gauges work with the obvious exception of the clock.  The vacuum for the headlights works as both lights pop up with the headlight switch or override switch as they should.  The wiper door also works, but is a bit temperamental and could also use some attention.  There are a few items on the car that are not functional including the horn, manual vent controls, and fiber optics.  The parking brake also feels a bit weak.  This car is a pleasure to drive, especially with the 4-Speed transmission and the t-tops out on a nice day.


Overall
Condition

 

Overall, this 1969 Corvette is in great driver condition.  It is a great value and we have priced it to sell.  This car turns heads and gets ton of attentions wherever it goes.  Numbers matching is extremely important in Corvette pricing.  In my opinion and based on our experience the "Chrome Bumper" cars from 1968-1972 are the most collectible in the entire Corvette market right now.  Of those years, the 1969 and 1972 are the most desirable.  The value of these cars has gone up exponentially in recent years.  The "Chrome Bumper" years have not had the detrimental over inflation that the mid year Corvettes have suffered from.  They are all solid investments for a collector.  Cars like this are the Barrett Jackson stars of the future.  One could easily enjoy this vehicle for several years and sell it for more than the purchase price with minimal effort.
