vehicle description

 

 

Seven Hills Motorcars is very proud to offer this gorgeous 1969 Corvette in excellent condition with A/C, which actually blows cold, power steering, power brakes, automatic transmission, and T-tops with the pop-out rear window.  This car looks great, runs great, and is an awesome driver with absolutely no rust issues.  It is optioned with the iconic and desirable color combination of Monza Red over Black.  This is the original and correct color scheme as verified by the trim tag, which is pictured below.  We have this car priced to sell and are offering 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.  It gets a ton of attention going down the road and turns heads everywhere it goes.  Please peruse all of the photos and information below to get a true sense of how exceptionally nice and clean this Corvette really is.

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 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.

Exterior

The Monza Red exterior is in nice driver condition.  As one can see in the photos the finish has fine gloss, deep shine, and smooth finish.  The wheels are in excellent condition with no curb rash on the beauty rings.  Often many Corvettes will have particularly chipped up front ends, this car does not There are no major blemishes that have been intentionally excluded from the photos.  There are some small imperfections around the car that were too faint to show up in photos, but nothing that is really noticeable from about five or ten feet away.  There is some crazing and very light crackling on the surface of the paint in certain areas visible in certain light from just the right angle, specifically on the rear deck.  I attempted to take particular photos to show this, but it is not always apparent and hard to capture.  The chrome bumpers and other bight work on the car look good overall with no major rust or pitting, the rear bumpers are a bit cloudy, which is evident in the photos.  As one can see in the photos of the underside of the car, this Corvette has absolutely NO rust issues.  The frame is totally solid with no rust in front of the rear tire and I have seen no evidence of corrosion around the windshield, which are the most notorious areas for rust on a C3 Corvette.

Window Date Codes

Driver: YV - "Y" denotes October and "V" denotes 1969 meaning the driver's side window was made in October of 1969.

Passenger: YV -
"Y" denotes October and "V" denotes 1969 meaning the passenger's side window was made in October of 1969.

Rear: YV -
"Y" denotes October and "V" denotes 1969 meaning the rear window was made in October of 1969.

Please note that the "Astro Ventilation" door glass, and even the pop out rear window, are date coded and original as each piece predates the car's body build date of November 22, 1969 (P22). Original glass is a good indication that this car has had no major accident history and never sustained significant damage.

 

Interior

 

The black interior of the Corvette looks very nice.  The seats look in person just as they do in the photos with no rips or splits seams.  They are not worn through in the typical areas such as where the driver gets in and out.  Please note that these appear the original seats, not some cheap aftermarket covers or replacements, though the foam has started to dry out, which is very commonThe carpet is in excellent condition with no tears, holes, or stains.  This included the rear carpet which is often neglected.  The dash is in excellent condition with no cracks or sun fading.  The original radio is still installed in the car and actually gets decent reception.  The door panels look great with no cracks or splits on the arm pads, which is a very common problem on this era Corvette.  This car has not been smoked in and there is no aroma whatsoever.  Corvette interiors are not known to wear well and the good condition of this interior is a testament to the excellent care this car has received throughout its life.

 

Mechanical

This car is in seems to be in very good mechanical condition and everything on the car works.  It is an exceptional driver that feels great on the road and at highway speeds.  It starts right away every time, idles well, and runs well.  The car shifts well throughout the power band.  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.  The is no smoke when driving the car.  After it has been sitting for a long period it will smoke a bit when it is first started.  It goes away quickly once you start driving so this isn't an internal problem with the engine or anything major like that, just some guide seals, which are easily serviceable.  The horn works as do all the exterior lights, all gauges (with the obvious exception of the clock), wipers, blower on all speeds, and even the a/c.  The vacuum system for the headlights and wiper door works correctly with no binding.  As with most 1968-71 Corvettes the fiber optic light monitoring system is not totally functional.  This Corvette has plenty of power and is very fast.  Not enough can be said as to how much of a pleasure it is to drive this car, especially with the t-tops out on a beautiful day.

A note 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.  

The system is very fragile and almost every driver quality Corvette we receive from 1968 through  1971 has at least some of the fiber optics that are no longer functional.  The system was so temperamental and unnecessary that it was only used on Corvettes from 1968-1971 and was deleted by Chevrolet for the Corvette in 1972.


Overall
Condition

 

Overall, this 1969 Corvette is in excellent driver condition.  It is a great value and we have priced it to sell.  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.  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.

 

Thank you for looking and please email or call with any questions.
