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 1957 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.

Seven Hills Motorcars is very proud to offer this numbers
matching 1971 Corvette. This Corvette is an awesome driver
and we have it priced to sell.
looks good, runs great, and is a blast to drive. This is 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. The low original mileage is supported
by not only the condition of the car, but also the clear Ohio title,
pictured below, showing the mileage as "actual." Please peruse
the list of numbers below and all of the photos to get a true sense
of how correct and original this Corvette really is.
As a side note, this Corvette is not a dealer auction vehicle.
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.
Please note when checking the numbers that not only do the correct
stampings and casting numbers appear on the parts, but all of the
dates are also chronologically correct. This means that all of
the parts were made and assembled in the correct order. For
example, all of the dates for the individual engine components and
the engine casting date should obviously precede the assembly date
of the engine because the parts had to be produced before they could
be assembled. All of the parts I checked follow this rule and
are dated correctly.
The first digit, "1," indicated the Chevrolet division of
GM. The "94" is the series, Corvette. The "37"
is the body style, 2-door sport coupe. The sixth
digit, "1," indicates the year, 1971. The "S" is the
plant where the car was produced, St. Louis. The last
five digits are a sequence number so this is the 7,152nd
Corvette made for 1971, which places this Corvette's build
date in January of 1971.
Body Build Date
"F" corresponds to January, and the 20 is the twentieth day
of the month meaning this Corvette's build date is January
"V" means the engine was build in the Flint, MI plant.
The "01" is the first month of year and the "12" is the
twelfth day of the month meaning the engine was assembled on
January 12, 1971. This is correct as it precedes the
build date of the car.
This means the motor was intended for a 270hp Corvette with
an automatic transmission, which is correct for this car.
Engine VIN Stamping
The last 6 digits of the car's VIN,
107152, are stamped on the
engine pad meaning this engine is original to this car.
Engine Block Casting Number
The engine block has the correct 3970010 casting number.
Engine Block Casting Date
L 12 0
"L" is December, "12" is the twelfth day of the month, and
"0" is is the last digit of the calendar year so the engine
block was cast on December 12 1970. Which is correct
as it predates the assembly date of the engine.
Intake Manifold Casting Number
The intake manifold has the correct 3973469 casting number.
Please note that this intake is specific to 1971 in
Intake Manifold Casting Date
L 28 0
"L" is December, "28" is the twenty-eighth day of the month,
and "0" is is the last digit of the calendar year so the
intake manifold was cast on December 28, 1970. Which
is correct as it predates the assembly date of the engine.
The distributor is correct with 1112050 stamped on the band.
Distributor Date Code
0 M 3
The "0" is the last digit of the colander year, the "M" is
December, and the "3" is the third day of the month meaning
the distributor was produced on December 3, 1970.
"V" denotes December and "T"
denotes 1970 meaning the windshield was made in December of
The first "T" denotes August and
the second "T" denotes 1970 meaning the driver's side window was
made in August of 1970.
"V" denotes December and "T"
denotes 1970 meaning the passenger's side window was made in
December of 1970.
The first "T" denotes August and
the second "T" denotes 1970 meaning the rear window was made in
August of 1970.

is in presentable driver condition. As one can see in the

exist on the rear deck lid and I have specifically included a
some extra photos of the area. One should really view the
car in person to get the best and most accurate idea of what the
car really looks like. The tires are in nice shape with
about 90% tread left.
Please note that all of the glass
on this car, the windshield, the "Astro Ventilation" door glass,
and even the pop out rear window, is date coded and original as
each piece predate the car's body build date of January 20, 1971
(F20). Original glass is a good indication that this
car has had no major accident history
and never sustained significant damage.
The saddle interior of the Corvette looks
The previous owner just spent over $3000
on brand new carpet, door panels, seats, and seat foam from Al
Knoch, which is the best name and highest quality in Corvette
interiors. The seats look virtually brand new with no
rips, splits seams, or signs of wear.
They are not worn
in the typical areas such as where the driver gets in and out.
The carpet throughout the car is
also in "like new" condition with no stains, rips,
This includes the rear carpet,
which is often neglected.
The dash and
console are in great condition with no cracks, fading, or sun
damage. The door panels are in excellent condition.
The original jack and jack handle are still with the car
stowed correctly in the rear storage compartment, pictured
lights do not always work from both sides.
This car has not been smoked in; there is no aroma
This car seems to
be in good mechanical condition.
It is an exceptional driver that
tight on the road and at highway speeds.
The car starts
right away every time, idles well, runs well.
There is no smoke when starting or driving the car. The
transmission works well with a crisp shift. The brakes do
not pull to one side or the other. Please note that like
any Corvette without power brakes, the pedal takes more pressure
than what most people are used to.
Also, the engine compartment is clean and nicely detailed as one
can see in the photos. This
Corvette has plenty of power
and is very fast.
The horn works as
do the headlights, headlight override vacuum switch, all gauges
(with the obvious exception of the clock and
oil pressure gauge sometimes reads low),
lights, wipers, wiper override vacuum switch, vent controls, and
CD player. Most of the fiber optics do not work.
This car has a very healthy exhaust note. Not enough can
be said as to how much of a pleasure it is to drive this car,
especially with the t-tops out on a beautiful day.
Overall, this 1971 Corvette is in great
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. Numbers matching is extremely
important in Corvette pricing. 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.
