a very focused operation. We do it because we enjoy it. We are a

Seven Hills Motorcars is glad to offer this
beautiful 1969 Corvette Coupe in nice driver condition and absolutely
priced to sell. The car looks great and runs awesome.
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 other information below
to get a true sense of how nice this Corvette really is.
While this Corvette is not completely numbers matching it
does have a 3970010 engine block, which is a casting number that
was used on Corvettes in 1969. The transmission is original and numbers
matching with the last six digits of the VIN, 708539,
stamped on the case and pictured below. This car rolled off
the assembly line during November 22, 1968 (D22).
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.
The blue exterior is in
very nice driver condition. As one can
see in the photos, the finish has fine gloss, smooth finish, and
deep shine. The wheels and
center caps are in good condition with a great finish. The
tires have about 90% tread left. The chrome and
other bright work shows well overall for a driver. There are a few blemishes around car that were too tiny
to show up in pictures, but nothing else that is really
noticeable from about five or ten feet away. This car has had some rust
repair in the typical area on the frame and has some rust around
the birdcage. We have included many photos of the
underside to show how it looks.
Window Date Codes
Windshield: AX - The "A" denotes
September and the "X" denotes 1968 meaning the
windshield was made in September of 1968. This is
correct as it predates the body build date of the car.
Driver: CX - The "C" denotes
November and the "X" denotes 1968 meaning the driver's
side window was made in November of 1968. This is
correct as it predates the body build date of the car.
Passenger: YX - The "Y" denotes October and the "X"
denotes 1968 meaning the passenger side window was made
in October of 1968. This is correct as it predates the
body build date of the car.
Rear: UX - The "U"
denotes July and the "X" denotes 1968 meaning the rear
window was made in July of 1968. This is correct as it
predates the body build date of the car.
note that ALL of the glass on this Corvette, the
windshield, the "Astro Ventilation" door glass, and even
the pop out rear window is date coded and original as
each piece predates the car's body build date of
November 22, 1968 (D22). Original glass is a good
indication that this car has had no major accident
history and never sustained significant damage.
The Black interior of the Corvette is in decent original
condition. The seats look in person just as they do in the
photos with some split seams and typical wear for its age.
Please note that these appear to be the original seats and
skins. The carpet is in nice condition as well with no holes
or stains. This includes the rear carpet, which is often
neglected. The radio works well and gets good reception. The dash is in good excellent
shape with no fading or sun damage. The door panels are in
good condition overall and are not cracked in the typical
area where your elbow would sit.
Corvette is a good driver that feels nice the road. It
starts right away every time and runs great. In the video below one can observe the car accelerating on the
highway up to about 65mph, shifting through all the gears,
braking to stoplight, and going through some curves. Please note
that there are no strange noises or vibrations and the
car performs quite well overall. There is no blue smoke when
starting or driving. The transmission does not pop out of gear
and the clutch feels good. The brakes are responsive and do not
pull to one side or the other. This Corvette has plenty of power and is quite
fast. Also, the engine compartment is clean and detailed as one can see in the photos. There
are some items on the car that do not work such as the horn,
blower, clock, temp gauge, odometer, some exterior lights, and
the fiber optics. This is an original factory A/C car, but some
of the A/C components have been removed. There is some play in
the suspension most notable on the highway and some other bugs
with the car I'm sure so we would encourage any perspective
buyer to look at the car in person if possible.
Some of the fiber optic system works. The vacuum system for the
headlights works correctly for both the headlight switch and the
override switch under the steering column. The headlight
operation can be seen in video below. The wipers work with the
washer button and the door raised manually.
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
good driver condition. It obviously needs a bit of work,
but the car has a ton of potential. We have it priced
very well and with the issues in mind. The paint is the most expensive item to
restore on a Corvette and the paint on this car looks
great. There are photos below of the
transmission VIN stamp and transmission assembly date. 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. 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.
