a very focused operation. We do it because we enjoy it. We are a

Seven Hills Motorcars is
proud to offer this
beautiful 1971 Corvette Convertible in fantastic driver condition with
a newer rebuilt engine. This Corvette looks nice, runs great, and is an
excellent driver. The new engine is much more powerful than the
stock engine and really adds to the performance of this Stingray. It is finished in the beautiful and
desirable color combination of Ontario Orange (987) over Black
Vinyl (400). This is the correct and original color scheme as
verified by the codes on the trim tag.
We are offering an
excellent opportunity to own a very desirable Corvette
Stingray at an
unbeatable value. The market on C3 "chrome bumper" Corvettes
from 1968 to 1972 is absolutely red hot right now and on the
rise; one could easily buy this car now and sell it for more
than the purchase price in years to come. Please peruse
all of the photos, video, and information below to get a true sense
of how 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 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.
Orange exterior is in decent driver condition. The previous
owner told us that he believed most of the paint on the car to
be original. The chrome looks great overall. Both doors open and
shut nicely. The P02 deluxe wheel have a brilliant finish and no
major curb rash. The Firestone Firehawk tires have
about 90% tread left and are correctly sized 225/70R15. The soft top operates well. There are no major
blemishes that have been excluded from the photos. There are
some small imperfections around the car with some
specific photos below and some that were
too faint to show up in the photos. As one would expect from a
paintjob with this many years on it the paint does some age and
checking as one can see in the photos. The rivets by the
headlights are visible, which is very common on this era C3. The
car basically looks in person as it does in the photos, but we
would recommend any perspective buyer to view the car in person
if possible to get the best idea of what it looks like. As one can see in
the many photos of the underside of the car, it is clean
underneath. We have included specific photos of the areas most
prone to rust.
Black interior in this Stingray is in outstanding
condition. The seats are in excellent shape with no split
seams, rips, or excessive wear. The carpet is also in
fantastic condition with no holes, rips, or major stains.
This includes the rear carpet, which is often neglected. The
gauge faces are crisp and clean and the lenses are clear.
The door panels are in good shape overall and the left panel is
not worn in the typical spot where the driver's elbow sits. The door pulls are
solid and intact. The dash and console look awesome with no
cracks or sun fading. The radio in the car sounds good and
most importantly it is Corvette specific unit made just for
this car so the dash has never been cut or modified for an
aftermarket installation. The radio is a modern unit from
Custom Audio Sound with Bluetooth and auxiliary hookups for
a phone. This
Corvette has never been smoked in; there are no burns marks
and no aroma of cigarettes. Corvette interiors from this era
are not known to wear well, and the excellent condition of
this interior is a huge testament to the meticulous care and
attention this car has received throughout its life.
Corvette seems to be in very good mechanical condition. As one would expect from a modern motor, the
engine starts right away every time, runs well, and idles
smooth. It drives great and feels nice on the road and at
highway speeds. 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 there are no vibrations or strange
noises and the car performs quite well overall. The brakes are
responsive and do not pull to one side or the other. The
transmission shift well, does not pop out of gear, and the
clutch feels good. Also, the
engine compartment is beautifully clean and detailed.
radio works as do all the exterior lights, horn, wipers, and indicators. The blower for the heater works on all speeds.
The entire vacuum system for the headlights and wiper door works
correctly from both their respective switches on the dash and
the override switches. They go up quickly, evenly, and with no
binding in the mechanism. The entire operation from both
switches can be viewed in the video. All of the gauges work with the obvious
exception of the clock. Not
enough can be said as to how much of a pleasure it is to drive
this car, especially with the extra power from the new engine,
the 4-Speed transmission, and the top down 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 1971 Corvette is in
great driver condition. The newer rebuilt
engine definitely adds to the value of this car and
preforms better than any other small block available
from Chevrolet in 1971. This Stingray is a great value and we
have it priced to sell. 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. There
is a key for the ignition and no key for the doors. We
can provide a door key for the new owner for an
additional $200. The value of these cars has gone up
exponentially in recent years. They are all solid
investments for a collector. While this is not an NCRS
Top Flight or Bloomington Gold car, it is a very nice
driver quality Corvette and a great car for the money.
One could easily enjoy this vehicle for several years
and sell it for more than the purchase price with
