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.

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
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.
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 34,503rd
Corvette made for 1969, which places this Corvette's build
date in November of 1969.
Body Build Date
"P" corresponds to November, and the 04 is the fourth day of
the month meaning this Corvette's build date is November 4,
"V" means the engine was build in the Flint, MI plant.
The "10" is the tenth month of year and the "28" is the
twenty-eighth day of the month meaning the engine was
assembled on October 28, 1969. This is correct as it
precedes the build date of the car.
This means the motor was intended for a 350hp Corvette with
a manual transmission, which is correct for this car.
Engine VIN Stamping
The last 6 digits of the car's VIN,
734503, are stamped on the engine pad
meaning this engine is original to this car.
Engine Block Casting Number
The engine block has the correct 3970010 casting number.
Engine Block Casting Date
J 14 9
"J" is October, "14" is the fourteenth day of the month, and
"9" is is the last digit of the calendar year so the engine
block was cast on October 14, 1969. Which is correct
as it predates the assembly date of the engine.
Intake Manifold Casting Number
The intake manifold has the correct 3927184 casting number.
Intake Manifold Casting Date
J 22 9
"J" is October, "22" is the twenty-second day of the month,
and "9" is is the last digit of the calendar year so the
engine block was cast on October 22, 1969. Which is
correct as it predates the assembly date of the engine.
Carburetor Main Body
The carburetor has the correct stamping for a 350ci 350hp
Corvette with a 4-Speed. The first two digits, "70" are
correct for all Rochesters built between 1965 and 1975.
The third digit, "2," means the carb was built in the
1960's. The fourth digit, "9," means it was built for the
1969 model year. The fifth digit, "2," indicates that it is
a 4BBL carb. The sixth digit, "0," means is was built for
the Chevrolet division of GM. The last digit, "7," means it
was intended for use in a manual transmission car such as
October and "V" denotes 1969 meaning the windshield was made in
October of 1969.
October and "V" denotes 1969 meaning the passenger's side window
was made in October of 1969.
October and "V" denotes 1969 meaning the rear window was made in
October of 1969.

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
