about the 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 1982 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 gorgeous Ontario Orange 1971 Corvette in excellent condition with saddle interior.  This car looks amazing, runs great, and is an awesome driver.  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 with minimal work and effort.  It gets a ton of attention going down the road.  I cannot even count the number of compliments I have received while driving this Corvette.  This is a southern Corvette that has absolutely no rust issues.  Please peruse all of the photos and information below to get a true sense of how exceptionally 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 cars 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

The Ontario Orange exterior is in absolutely beautiful driver condition.  As one can see in the photos the finish has fine gloss, deep shine, and smooth finish.  The chrome bumpers and other bight work on the car look nice with good finish and no major rust or pitting.  The wheels are in excellent condition with no curb rash on the beauty rings.  There are no major blemishes that have been intentionally excluded from the photos.  There are some imperfections that were too faint to show up in photos, but nothing that is really noticeable from about five or ten feet away.  Specific photos below show some small touch ups and other small imperfections.  The tires are in nice shape with about 80% tread left.  This Corvette has absolutely NO rust issues.  The frame is totally solid with no rust in front of the rear tire and I have seen no evidence of corrosion around the windshield, which are the most notorious areas for rust on a C3 Corvette.

The Corvette looks just as good in person as it does in the photos.

 

Interior

 

The saddle interior of the Corvette looks splendid.  The seats look almost brand new with no rips, splits seams, or signs of excessive wear.  They are not worn in the typical areas such as where the driver gets in and out.  There is one very tiny spot on the driver's seat that is hardly visible.  I have included a specific photo of the area below to show how hard it is to notice.  The carpet is in good condition with no rips or holes.  This included the rear carpet which is often neglected.  The carpet does show some age and discoloration, but mostly the area that is covered by the mat anyway.  There are a couple cracks in the dash pad and a specific photo of them below.  The original radio is still installed in the car, but it does not turn on.  The door panels look great with no cracks or splits, though they are a bit wavy.  This car has not been smoked in and there is no aroma whatsoever.  Corvette interiors are not known to wear well and the excellent condition of this interior is a testament to the excellent care this car has received throughout its life.

 

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

 

Mechanical

This car is in seems to be in very good mechanical condition.  It is an exceptional driver that feels great on the road and at highway speeds.  There is no notable smoke when starting or driving the car.  It starts right away every time, idles well, and runs well.  The car shifts well throughout the power band.  The brakes are responsive and do not pull to one side or the other.  Also, the engine compartment is clean and nicely detailed as one can see in the photos.  The horn works as do all the interior and exterior lights, all gauges (with the obvious exception of the clock), wipers, and blower for the heater and a/c.  The entire vacuum system for the headlights and wiper door works correctly from both their respective switches on the dash and override switches.  As with most 1968-71 Corvettes the fiber optic light monitoring system is not totally functional.  The only item on the car that I am aware of that does not work is the a/c.  This Corvette has plenty of power and is very fast.  Not enough can be said as to how much of a pleasure it is to drive this car, especially with the t-tops  and back window 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 system is very fragile and almost every driver quality Corvette we receive from 1968 through  1971 has at least some of the fiber optics tat are no longer functional.  The system was so temperamental and unnecessary that it was only used on Corvettes from 1968-1971 and was deleted by Chevrolet for the Corvette in 1972.


Overall
Condition

 

Overall, this 1971 Corvette is in excellent driver condition.  It is a great value and we have priced it to sell.  This car turns heads and gets ton of attentions wherever it goes.  In my opinion and based on our experience the "Chrome Bumper" cars from 1968-1972 are the most collectible 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.  Cars like this are the Barrett Jackson stars of the future.  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 email or call with any questions.
