Seven Hills Motorcars is proud to offer this beautiful 1970
Coupe in great driver condition. This Corvette
looks nice, runs great, and is an excellent driver that feels great
out on the road. We
have put over 40 miles on it during our ownership and during
that time it was complete reliable and a pleasure to drive.
the 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 C3 "chrome bumper" Corvettes
from 1968 to 1972 is absolutely red hot
right now and on the rise. The 1970 model year Corvette was only
made for 6 months and is the most rare of the "chrome bumper" years.
1970 was also the last year in Chevrolet before the emission
requirements started that limited horsepower. Please peruse all of the photos,
video, and other information below to get a true sense of
how nice this Corvette really is.
While this Corvette is not completely numbers matching it
does have a 3970010 engine block, which is the correct
casting number for a 1970 Corvette. The transmission is
correct, original, and number matching with the last six
digits of the VIN stamped on the main case and pictured
below. The body build date on this Corvette is F24, which
decodes to June 24, 1970.
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.
1970 was the last year for high compression, truly full output, and
all out performance 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
red exterior is in good driver condition. As one can
see in the photos, the finish has fine gloss and nice shine. Both doors open
and shut nicely. The wheels and center caps
are in good condition with a great finish. The tires have about
90% tread left.
There some small imperfections around the car that are
visible in the photos and some that are too tiny to show up in
pictures, but nothing else that is really noticeable from about
five or ten feet away. There is an spot near the driver's door
handle and specific photos of the area below. The underside
of the car is clean the frame
is totally solid around the "key hole" area in front of the rear
tire. We have included many photos of the
underside to show how good it looks.
This Corvette looks as good in person as it does in
Window Date Codes
Please note that almost
all of the glass on this Stingray, including the
windshield and even the pop out rear
window, is date
coded and original as each piece predates the car's body
build date of June 24, 1970 (F24). Original glass is
a good indication that this car has had no major
and never sustained significant damage.
Windshield - IT - The "I" denotes
June and the "T" denotes 1970
meaning the windshield was made in June of
1970. This is correct as it predates the body build
Passenger - LT - The "L" denotes March and the "T"
denotes 1970 meaning the passenger window was made
in March of 1970. This is correct as it predates the
body build date.
Rear - LT - The
"L" denotes March and the "T" denotes 1970 meaning the
rear window was made in March of 1970. This is correct
as it predates the body build date.
Black interior of the Corvette is in great condition. The seats are in
shape and look just in person as they do in the
photos with no rips, split seams, or excessive wear. The carpet is also in
great condition with no stains, tears, or holes. The dash is in fantastic condition with no
cracks, fading, or sun damage. The door panels are in terrific shape
with no spits or cracks in the usual spot where the driver's
elbow sits. The door pulls are solid and intact. The door
locks do not work. There is a crack in the parking brake
console. The radio works and most
importantly the dash was not cut or modified for the installation. The jack and jack handle are still
present and stored correctly in the storage compartment
behind the passenger seat. The car also still has a spare
tire. This Corvette has never been smoked in;
there are no burns marks and no aroma of cigarettes.
The interior looks as good in person as it does in
Corvette seems to be in good mechanical condition. The car is a awesome driver that feels nice the
road and at highway speeds. As stated above we have put over 40
miles on the car with no issue at all. It starts right away every time,
idles well, and runs great. In the video below one can observe
the car accelerating on the highway up to about 70mph, shifting
through all the gears, braking to stoplight, and going through
some curves. Please note that it drives smooth and the
car performs quite well overall. There is no blue smoke when starting or driving the
car. The brakes are responsive and do not pull to one side or
the other. The transmission shifts well. The gauge shows that
the engine make good oil presure. Also, the engine compartment is beautifully clean and
detailed as one can see in the photos.
The horn works as do all
the indicators, wipers, exterior lights, and dash lights. The entire vacuum
system for the headlights and wiper door works from both their
respective switches on the dash and the override
switches. Their complete operation from both switches
can be observed in the video. All of the gauges work with the obvious
exception of the clock. Some of the fiber optics work.
The power windows work, but the right one is slow
towards the top.
The blower for the heater works on all speeds. 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.
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, this 1970 Corvette is in
excellent driver condition. 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 1970 is particularly desirable due
to its rarity. The previous owner said he believed the
mileage to be original, but the title in branded nonactual. This Corvette always gets a ton of attention
driving down the road. The prices of C3 Corvettes have increased
drastically over the past years and they are secure and
wise 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.
