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.

Seven Hills Motorcars is very proud to offer this numbers
matching 1969 Corvette 4-Speed that is an excellent driver and

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.
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.
The first digit, "1," indicated the Chevrolet division of
GM. The "94" is the series, Corvette. The "37"
is the body style, 2-door sport coupe. The sixth
digit, "9," indicates the year, 1969. The "S" is the
plant where the car was produced, St. Louis. The last
five digits are a sequence number so this is the 23,705th
Corvette made for 1969.

"V" means the engine was build in the Flint, MI plant.
The "06" is the sixth month of year and the "23" is the
twenty-third day of the month meaning the engine was
assembled on June 23, 1969. This is correct as it
precedes the build date of the car.
This means the motor was intended for a 300hp Corvette with
a manual transmission, which is correct for this car.

723705, are stamped on the
engine pad meaning this engine is original to this car.

predates the assembly date of the engine.

3857584 casting number.

is in nice driver condition. As one can see in the photos
the finish has dazzling gloss, deep
shine, and smooth finish.
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
and never sustained significant damage.
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.
This car is
in good mechanical condition.
The car starts right away every time, idles well, runs well.
This Corvette is a nice driver
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
The shifter works okay and is totally
functional, but it seems like it could use some adjustments and
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 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, 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
