about our dealership
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 1963 to 2004 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.

vehicle description

 

 

Seven Hills Motorcars is tremendously proud to offer this 4 speed 1971 Corvette Convertible for sale with both tops.  The red on black color combination is super sharp and desirable.  This car was originally produced on December 22, 1970.  This is verified by the "E22" code on the trim tag.  Very fortunately, this car came with documentation and ownership history back to 1980 including correspondence with the Clerk of Courts and copies of original titles.  The car received a mild restoration in the early 90s.  Luckily the owner at the time was very meticulous and kept very detailed records.  I still have many of the receipts and a very comprehensive list of all the works he did to the car, each part he purchased, where he made each purchase, the cost of each part or repair, and most importantly all the dates as well.  I have included copies of this extensive list.  Some of the major work included a full repaint of the car and a completely new interior (seats, carpet, door panels, etc).  The engine and transmission were rebuilt in 1999 with receipts showing the work.  This car has always received complements whenever I have driven it.  I invite and encourage you to look at the Corvette in person. 

As a side note, this Corvette is not a dealer auction vehicle.  I hand pick each car after careful inspection.  The cars I purchase come from owners who expect their car to go to someone that will give the vehicle the same care and attention as they did.  Please take the time to examine each picture I have provided.  I photograph each vehicle to the greatest extent so you can feel confident about your purchase.  If you have a question about the Corvette, please feel free to send an email or give me a call.

 

condition

 
 

Exterior

The Mille Miglia Red exterior paint is in great driver condition.  The paintís finish has a very nice gloss.  The car was painted 18 years ago in July of 1991 so there is some age on the paint, but has been well cared for during those years.  Often many Corvettes will have particularly chipped up front ends, this car does not.  There are some small blemishes and spots in the paint around the car that were too small to show up in the photos,  but nothing that is really noticeable from five feet away.  The chrome bumpers are in very nice condition for and show very well.  The tires show almost no wear.  The wheels are in excellent condition with no curb rash.  The car still retains all of its original glass including the "Astro Ventilation" side glass and even the glass in the hardtop.  Red is by far the most sought after color on any Corvette and also the most striking.

All of the glass is date coded and original to the car as it predates the build date of December 22, 1970.  This indicates that the car has never been in a major accident and never sustained any significant damage.

Windshield: VT - The "V" denotes December and "T" 1970 so the windshield was made in December of 1970.

Driver: UT - The "U" denotes July and "T" 1970 so the driver's side window was made in July of 1970.

Passenger: UT - The "U" denotes July and "T" 1970 so the passenger's side window was made in July of 1970.

Hard Top: TT - The "T" denotes August and "T" 1970 so the rear window was made in August of 1970.
 

Interior

The black leather interior of the Corvette is also in excellent condition.  Most all of the interior was refreshed in 1991.  The seats, replaced in 1991, do not have any rips or tears and show very little wear. The driverís seat is not worn through in the typical places, such as where the driverís belt-line may wear the seat bolsters. The carpet is in very good condition as well with no holes or stains. Both the front and rear carpet were replaced in 1991 along with detail items such as the 3 rear compartment doors and frame.  The door panels are in great condition and unlike many Corvettes of this age, they fit very well and tight to the door.  The convertible top latches and closes easily and the rear window has not yellowed or fogged up at all.  The top was replaced in 1998 and still looks almost brand new.  The dash and console is not split or sun faded.  Most of the fiber-optic system still works.  The aftermarket radio works and sounds much better than the stock radio ever did and the installation was professional and I have the receipt for the work.  I must disclose that the car does have a slight tinge of cigarette smell.

 

Mechanical

 

This Corvette is in fine mechanical condition.  The car needs no work or service at all that I am aware of and is essentially, "turn key."  The engine and transmission were rebuilt in 1999 and a new clutch and throw out bearing were also installed.  I cannot list here all the work that was done to the car, but one should peruse the lists below to see the number of new parts and the amount of time and money that has been spent on this car over the years.  The engine in the car now is a GM 350.  The casting number is 3970010, which was a very widely used block for Chevrolet.  It was also used in Corvettes from 1969 to 1979.  The  car starts up quickly, runs well, idles well, and does not smoke at all.  The car is tight on the road and highway.  This Corvette has plenty of power, it is very fast.  The transmission is a Muncie 4 speed and the clutch makes no noise and feels great.  This car is very much fun to drive, especially with the 4-speed.  The brakes are powerful and stop straight.  The headlights and wiper door both pop up quickly with no effort or binding what so ever.  All of the gauges work with the exception of the clock.  I must disclose that there has been some welding repair to the frame.  Not enough can be said as to how much of a pleasure it is to drive this car especially with the 4 speed and the top down.

 

Overall Condition

 

Overall the vehicle is in outstanding condition for a driver, both the exterior and interior as well as mechanically.  It always gets attention going down the road.  Corvettes from 1968 to 1972 are highly desirable and have continued to appreciate in value over the years.  One could easily buy this car now, drive and enjoy it for several years, and then sell it for more than the purchase price.  The Corvette always turns heads and is admired by every car enthusiast.  Thank you for looking and please email or call with any questions.
