Seven Hills Motorcars is proud to offer this numbers matching 1969 Corvette in excellent condition and loaded with options such as A/C, power steering, power brakes, power windows, tilt/telescopic steering column, and fender louver trim. This Corvette looks great, runs awesome, and is a wonderful driver that feels great on the road. It just this month completed a two hour road trip over 130 miles; it was completely reliable and ran great the whole time.

The car is finished in the rare and highly desirable color combination of Daytona Yellow over Black. This is the correct and original color scheme as verified by the codes on the trim tag and tank sticker, both pictured below. This Corvette is "Numbers Matching" meaning that the engine that is in the car now is the same one that was installed in the car new at the factory. The last six digits of the VIN, 705931, are stamped on the engine pad, which is pictured below. The transmission is also original with the last six digits of the VIN stamped on the main case and pictured below. The original tank sticker (build sheet) is also included with the car and pictured below even though it is hard to read.

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 in years to come as the market on "chrome bumper" C3 Corvettes from 1968-1972 is absolutely red hot right now, out of those years we have found the 1969 and 1972 to be most desirable. Please peruse all of the photos, video, the extensive list of numbers, and other information below to get a true sense of how nice 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 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.

 

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 Daytona Yellow exterior is in excellent driver condition. As one can see in the photos, the finish has fantastic gloss, deep shine, and smooth finish. The chrome and other bight work on the car looks great with no pitting or cloudiness. The wheels are in beautiful shape with a brilliant finish and absolutely no curb rash on the beauty rings. The BF Goodrich tires have about 90% tread left and are correctly sized 225/70R15. There are a few other tiny imperfections around the car that are too small to show up in pictures, but nothing else that is really noticeable from about five feet away. The car has had some rust issues in the typical areas. We have included many photos of the underside of the car to show how it looks and included specific photos of the areas most prone to rust.

 

Interior

The Black interior of the Corvette is in fantastic condition and has been totally restored. The seats were recently recovered and looks brand new with no rips or split seams. The carpet is in great condition as well with no holes or stains. This includes the rear carpet, which is often neglected. The door panels look nice with no cracking or splits. The dash and console are in great shape with no fading or sun damage. The radio works and gets good reception. Most importantly, the dash was never been cut or modified for the installation. The jack and handle are present and stored correctly behind the passenger seat and pictured below.


Mechanical

This Corvette seems to be in very good mechanical condition. As stated above, it just completed a 2 hours road trip with no issues. The engine starts right away every time and runs well. The car is a great driver that feels nice the road and at highway speeds. In the video below one can observe the car accelerating on the highway up to about 60mph, 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. 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 nicely detailed as one can see in the photos. The exterior lights, indicators, and horn all work. The blower motor for the heater and a/c works on all speeds except high. The entire vacuum system for the headlights and wiper door works from both of their respective switches on the dash and override switches; their complete operation from both switches can be viewed in the video. All of the gauges work with the obvious exception of the clock. Some of the fiber optics work. The a/c does not work and the previous owner said it needs a new compressor, which is available from Rockauto for $173.79. Not enough can be said as to how much of a pleasure it is to drive this car, especially with 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.


Overall Condition

 

Overall, this 1969 Corvette is in wonderful driver condition. Numbers matching is extremely important in Corvette pricing and as one can see, this car is quite correct. The rare and original color combination also adds value to this Corvette. There are photos below of the VIN stamp on the engine block, suffix code, engine assembly date, and transmission codes. 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 and out of those years 1969 and 1972 are the most sought-after. 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.
