Seven Hills Motorcars is glad to offer this
absolutely beautiful 1971 Corvette Stingray Coupe in stunning condition with
only 66,530 miles. This Corvette looks fantastic,
drives awesome, and runs extremely strong with a factory GM
Performance crate engine. The
car has received a "Frame On" restoration with newer paint, a fully
restored interior, and the newer crate engine. This Stingray is loaded
with options such as air conditioning, factory "custom" interior
trim with leather seats, power windows, power steering, power brakes, and
tilt-telescopic steering column.
We have this 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.
Please peruse all
of the photos, video, and other information below
to get a true sense of how exceptionally nice this Corvette really is.
The previous owner of this Stingray is a jet engine mechanic
who recently retired from American Airlines. We actually
purchased two Corvettes from this gentleman in Nashville,
TN. We purchased this orange 1971 Stingray Coupe along with
a 1969 Stingray Convertible in Aztec Silver over Gunmetal
with a ZZ4 crate engine. He was a true
Corvette enthusiast with other Stingrays in his collection
along with many other classic cars.
The previous owner, being an airline mechanic, was very
meticulous and kept very detailed records on both of the
Corvettes we bought. There are dozens and dozens of receipts
for maintenance and restoration work competed on this car
over the years. The receipts total over $8,700, which does
not even include the cost of the paintjob. There is one
receipt from Pace Performance, pictured below, for the GM
crate engine. This Stingray has all the benefits of the
better performance, reliability, durability, and speed from
the GM crate engine.
As a side note, this Corvette is b>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.
exterior is in outstanding condition. As one can see in the
photos, the finish has dazzling gloss, deep shine, and smooth
finish. The chrome and other bright work looks great with a
bright finish and no pitting or cloudiness. The wheels and center
caps are in excellent condition with a brilliant finish. The tires
are literally brand new with less than 20 miles on them and are
correctly sized 225/70R15. There are no major imperfections that
have been intentionally excluded from the photos. This Stingray
has absolutely NO RUST ISSUES and as one can see in the many
photos of the underside it is very clean underneath. The frame
is totally solid with no rust around the "key hole" area in
front of the rear tire and there are no signs of corrosion
around the windshield or "birdcage" area, which are the two most
notorious areas for rust on a Corvette of this era.
The Stingray looks just as good in person as it
does in the photos.
black interior of the Corvette looks absolutely superb. The
seats look virtually brand new with no split seems, rips, or
signs of wear. The carpet is also in like-new condition with
no tears, holes, or stains. This included the rear carpet
which is often neglected. The gauge faces are clean and
crisp and the lenses are clear. The dash and console are in
terrific condition with no fading or sun damage. The radio
sounds great and most importantly, it is a Corvette specific
unit made just for this car so the dash has never been cut
for an aftermarket installation. The door panels are in
great condition with no cracks or wear. This Corvette has
not been smoked in and there is no aroma of cigarettes
looks just as good in person as it does in the photos.
This Corvette seems to be in excellent mechanical condition. It
starts right away every time, idles smooth, and runs fabulous
with the newer GM crate engine. As stated above, there are over
$8,700 in receipts with the car so it is well sorted
mechanically. The car is a great
driver that feels nice 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 strange noises or vibrations and the
car performs quite well overall. The car runs cool and does not
overheat. The transmission shifts well throughout the power band. The brakes are
responsive and do not pull to one side or the other. This Corvette has plenty of power and is
very quick, it is much quicker than with the stock engine. Also, the engine compartment is clean and detailed as one can see in the photos.
The wipers works as do the indicators, power windows, exterior lights, and
all of the gauges work with the obvious exception of the
clock. The vacuum system for the
headlights works and wiper door works with the override
switch. The entire operation of the vacuum system for
the headlights and wipers can be
viewed in the video below.
Some of the fiber optic system works. The horn and blower for
the heater and a/c do not work. 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 crate engine and 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.
The car runs and
drives as well as it looks.
Overall, this 1971 Corvette is in
fantastic driver condition. The beautiful color
combination, the excellent condition, and the extensive
service history make this Corvette particularly
desirable and hard to duplicate. Low mileage examples in
this year range are very rare and draw a huge premium
over a standard Corvette. 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. The value of these
cars has gone up exponentially in recent years. They are
all solid investments for a collector. This Corvette
comes with an ignition key, but no key for the doors. A
door key can be provided for an additional $250. 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 minimal effort.
Thank you for looking and please do not
hesitate to email or call with any questions.
