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 L46 Corvette 4-Speed that is a particularly excellent driver and priced to sell.  The car looks good, 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 previous owner was a car collector and Corvette enthusiast with multiple Sting Rays in is collection.   He was meticulous with his vehicles, which is evident in the work that he did to the car including all new brakes, vacuum system for headlights and wipes, and brand new shifter.  I would not hesitate to hop in this car and take a long road trip.  It gets a ton of attention going down the road, especially with the side pipes.  I cannot even count the number of compliments I have received while driving this Corvette.  Please peruse all of the photos and numbers below to get a true sense of how original 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 presentable driver condition.  As one can see in the photos the finish has fine gloss, deep shine, and smooth finish.  Please note that this is an original sidepipe car with no cutouts for the standard exhaust under the rear bumpers.  The current chrome sidepipes are an excellent compliment to car and its style, especially with black on black.  The chrome bumpers and other bight work on the car show well for the most part.  There is some some chipping behind the rear tires.  There are no major imperfections that have been intestinally 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 about ten feet away.  The paintjob has some age and blemishes, which is evident in the photos.  I have done my best to accurately and objectively photograph the car and show the flaws, but some are too small or cannot be picked up by the camera.  For the most part however, the car looks in person as it does in the photos The wheels are in great condition with a nice finish and no curb rash on the beauty rings. The tires are in nice shape with about 80% tread left.

 

Interior

 

The black interior of the Corvette looks marvelous.  The seats look virtually brand new with no rips, splits seams, or signs of wear.  They are not worn in the typical areas such as where the driver gets in and out.  The carpet throughout the car is also in "like new" condition with no stains, rips, or holes.  This includes the rear carpet, which is often neglected.  The dash is in great condition with no cracks, fading, or sun damage.  The original jack and jack handle are still with the car in the rear storage compartment.  The interior lights do not always work from both sides.  This car has not been smoked in; there is no aroma whatsoever.  Corvette interiors are not known to wear well and the excellent condition of this interior is a testament to the meticulous care this car has received throughout its life. 


Mechanical

The great performance, the way car the drives, and the way it feels on the road are the strongest points with this Corvette.  This car is in superb mechanical condition.  It is an exceptional driver that is tight on the road and at highway speeds.  There is no smoke when starting or driving the car.  The brakes are responsive and do not pull to one side or the other.  Also, the engine compartment is clean and nicely detailed as one can see in the photos.  Like many carbureted cars, it is a bit cold blooded on the start, but always fires up, idles well, and runs well.  This Corvette has plenty of power and is very fast with the L46 engine option.  The clutch feels good and the car shifts well.  The car just received an alignment on February 20 of this year so it drives straight.  All of the parameters of the alignment are shown to be within spec on the alignment sheet, which comes with the car.  The horn works as do the headlights, headlight override vacuum switch, all gauges (even the clock), lights, wipers, wiper override vacuum switch, vent controls, and even the original radio, which actually gets decent reception.  Most of the fiber optic lights do not work.  Not enough can be said as to how much of a pleasure it is to drive this car, especially with the 4-Speed, extra power from the L46, and the t-tops out on a beautiful 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.
