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.

Seven Hills Motorcars is very proud to offer this numbers
matching 1970 Corvette Convertible that is in absolutely
beautiful condition and priced to sell.
looks awesome, 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 car is finished in the very rare and desirable color combination
of Daytona Yellow (984) over Black (400). This is the original
and correct color scheme, verified by the trim tag pictured below.
It gets a ton of attention going down the road, especially with the
rare and striking color.
I cannot even count the number of compliments I have received while
driving this Corvette. The low original mileage is supported
not only by the condition of the car, but also the clear Ohio title
pictured below showing the mileage as "Actual." Please peruse all of the photos and numbers
below to get a true sense of how original and nice this Corvette
1970 was the last
year for high compression, truly full output, engines in Corvettes.
The model years to follow were more at the mercy of insurance
companies, fuel prices, and emission concerns.
The 1970 Corvette saw the shortest production time and lowest
production numbers for any year of "chrome bumper" Corvettes.
Total production in 1970 was only 17,316, which was the lowest since
1962. A strike at GM caused the 1969 model year to run for an
extra 4 months so production on the 1970 models did not start until
January of 1970. The body shape in 1970 was improved with
fender flares to reduce the damage from wheel thrown debris.
Many enthusiasts prefer the more pronounced fender flare and wheel
opening introduced this year. 1970 also introduced the iconic
"egg-crate" grills on the side of the car, which were only used on
Corvettes for 3 years and have become a symbol of the "chrome
bumper" Corvettes. The interior saw subtle improvements
including a redesigned seat for better headroom and better access to
the storage area.
As in investment, the 1970 model year be particularly great due to
the rarity and the fact that this was the last year Corvettes and
muscle cars as a whole were purpose built for speed and performance
without the limitations from environmental and emission concerns.
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 "67"
is the body style, 2-door convertible. The sixth

The Daytona Yellow
is in beautiful driver condition. As one can see in the
the finish has dazzling gloss, deep
shine, and smooth finish.
The chrome bumpers
and other bight work on the car look great and show well overall
with no major pitting or rust.
The convertible top is in excellent condition with no rips,
holes, or excessive wear. The rear window is clear and not
yellowed or foggy at all. There are no major imperfections
that have been intentionally excluded from the photos.
There are some light scratches and other imperfections that were
too faint to show up in photos, but nothing that is really
noticeable from about five or ten feet away.
The wheels are in
great condition with a nice bright finish and no curb rash on
the beauty rings. The tires are almost brand new and
appear to have about 90% tread left.
This Corvette has
absolutely NO rust issues. I have included photos of the
underside of the car with specific shots of the areas most prone
to rust. The frame is totally solid with no rust in front
of the rear tire and I have seen no evidence of corrosion around
This Corvette looks just as good in person
as it does in the photos.
The black interior of the Corvette looks
The seats look literally brand new with no
rips, splits seams, or signs of any 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 great condition with no stains, rips,
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 original stereo radio
works well and actually gets decent reception.
This car has not been smoked in; there is no aroma
whatsoever. Corvette interiors are not known to wear well,
especially convertibles, and the excellent condition of this
is a testament
to the meticulous care this car has received
throughout its life.
interior looks just as good in person as it does in the photos.
This car seems to
be in good mechanical condition.
It is an exceptional driver that
tight on the road and at highway speeds.
The car always
fires up quickly, idles well, and runs well.
The brakes are responsive and do not pull to one side or the
other. The brakes were just serviced with a new master
cylinder and 4 new calipers.
Also, the engine compartment is clean and nicely detailed as one
can see in the photos. The
transmission shifts well and the clutch feels good.
There is no notable smoke when driving the car, just a puff when
it is first started. This
Corvette has plenty of power
and is very fast.
The horn works as
do the headlights, all gauges (with the obvious exception of the
clock), interior and exterior lights, wipers, vent controls, and
blower for the heater.
There is a noise from the engine area, only audible during light
acceleration. It is almost like a ting or clapping sound.
The car also makes some header related noises so I am not sure
if this is more of that.
The entire vacuum system for the
headlights and wiper door works well including both override
Not enough can be said as to how much of a pleasure it is to
drive this car, especially with the top down on a beautiful day.
Overall, this 1970 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, and
the 1970 model year is the most rare. 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.
