Seven Hills Motorcars is glad to offer this beautiful 1971 Corvette Coupe in excellent condition and loaded with options such as, power steering, power brakes, power windows, and tilt/telescopic steering column. This Corvette looks terrific, runs well, and drives great. It is very fast with a GM performance ZZ4 crate engine. The car is finished in the stunning and highly desirable color combination of Ontario Orange (987) over Black Vinyl (400). This is the correct and original factory color scheme verified by the codes on the trim tag pictured below. 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 nice this Corvette really is.

We have put over 70 miles on this Stingray and during that time is was a pleasure to drive and completely reliable. While this Corvette is not completely numbers matching the previous owner told us it has a newer GM Performance ZZ4 crate engine. The casting number on the block is 10243880, which is correct for a ZZ4. It also has aluminum cylinder heads with a "6463" stamping, which would also be right for a GM performance ZZ4 crate engine. The transmission is original and numbers matching with the last six digits of the VIN, 199770, stamped on the case and pictured below. This car rolled off the assembly line on June 17, 1971 (K17).

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.

 

condition

 
 

Exterior

The Ontario Orange exterior is in excellent driver condition. As one can see in the photos, the finish has dazzling gloss, deep shine, and smooth finish. Both doors open and shut nicely. The wheels and center caps are in good condition with a great finish and no curb rash. The chrome and other bright work shows very well overall. There are a few small rock chips that have been touched up and some other small blemishes around car that were too tiny to show up in pictures, but nothing else that is really noticeable from about five or ten feet away. The underside of the car is exceptionally clean and nearly as nice as the top. This Corvette has absolutely NO RUST ISSUES. The frame is totally solid around the "key hole" area in front of the rear tire and we have seen no evidence of corrosion around the windshield or "birdcage." These are the most notorious spots for rust on a C3 Corvette. We have included many photos of the underside to show how great it looks.

This Corvette looks as good in person as it does in the photos.

 

Interior

The Black Vinyl interior of the Corvette is in spectacular condition and has been totally restored. The seats were recently recovered and looks brand new with no rips or split seams. The carpet is in excellent condition as well with no holes or stains. This includes the rear carpet, which is often neglected. The door panels look great with no cracking or splits. The dash is in great shape with no fading or sun damage. The radio works well, sounds great, and the installation looks very professional. All of the gauge faces are crisp and the lenses are clear. This car has not been smoked in and there is no aroma of cigarettes at all.

The interior looks as good in person as it does in the photos.


Mechanical

This Corvette seems to be in excellent mechanical condition. It starts right away every time, runs well, and idles well. As stated above we have put over 70 miles on the car with no issues at all. It is an excellent 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 transmission shifts well. The brakes are responsive and do not pull to one side or the other. This Corvette has a ton of power and is very fast with the high performance GM crate engine. 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, interior lights,and exterior lights. The blower motor for the a/c and heater works. All of the gauges work with the obvious exception of the clock. This is an original factory A/C car, but some of the A/C components have been removed. Most of the fiber optics work. The entire vacuum system for the headlights and wiper door works from both of their respective switches on the dash and override switches; their complete operation from both switches can be viewed in the video. Not enough can be said as to how much of a pleasure it is to drive this car, especially with T-tops out on a beautiful day.

A note 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 Condition

 

Overall, this 1971 Corvette Stingray is in wonderful driver condition. It is very fast and should be very reliable with the newer GM Performance crate engine. 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 excellent condition, the ZZ4 engine, and iconic color combination make this car especially important and difficult to duplicate. This Corvette always gets a ton of attention driving down the road. It is very apparent that the vehicle has been well taken care of by its previous owners. The prices of C3 Corvettes have increased drastically over the past years. 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.
