is in presentable driver condition. As one can see in the
the finish has nice gloss, deep
shine, and smooth finish.
The chrome bumpers
and other bight work on the car show well for the most part.
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.
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. One should really view
the car in person to get the best and most accurate idea of what
the car really looks like.
For the most part
however, the car looks in person as it does in the photos.
The left side
of the front bumper does not fit perfectly, which is visible in
the photos. The wheels are in good condition with a nice
finish. The tires are in great shape with about 80% tread

Please note that all of the glass on this car, 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 3, 1969 (P03). Original glass
is a good indication that this car has had no major accident
never sustained significant damage.
The tan interior is in good condition.
The seats look in person just as they
do in the photos and show very little wear with no slits, tears,
or split seams.
They are not overly
worn in the typical areas such as where the driver gets in and
out. The carpet is in
excellent condition with no stains, rips,
The dash had no splits or sun damage. Someone has
attempted to dye certain parts of the interior sometime in the
past, which is evident in the photos and a detriment to the
overall condition. This car

The car drives well; it
is smooth on the road and at highway speeds. There is no
notable smoke when starting or driving the car.
The brakes are responsive and do not pull to one side or the
other. The transmission shifts smoothly throughout the power
band. This Corvette has plenty of power and is very fast.
all that said, there is still some work left to be done.
There are also some options on the car that no longer work such
as the blower motor for the heater, misc lights, horn, wipers,
and other items. There may be other troubles with the car
that I have possibly overlooked so I would suggest that the
buyer inspect the car in person if possible. There is the
sound of an exhaust leak present. None of the problems I
have noticed make the car unusable in its current state, but in
an attempt to be totally honest I must disclose them. The
headlights work as one can see in the photos. Also, the
vacuum for the headlights works as they pop up with the
headlight switch or override switch as they should. This
car is still a pleasure to drive, especially with the t-tops out
on a nice day.
Overall, this 1969 Corvette is in good
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. 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
