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 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.

vehicle description

 

 

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.  The car 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.

 

numbers

 
 

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. 

 

item number description*
VIN 194371S107152 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.

condition

 
 

Exterior

The white exterior is in presentable 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 show well with no major pitting or rust.  The wheels are in great condition with a nice finish and no curb rash.  There are no major imperfections that have been intentionally excluded from the photos.  The paintjob has some age and blemishes, which is evident in the photos.  I have done my best to accurately and objectively photograph the car and show the flaws, but some are too small or cannot be picked up by the camera.  There are some touch ups and other blemishes that were too faint to show up in photos, but nothing that is really stands out from about ten feet away.  Some paint issues 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.

 

Interior

 

The saddle interior of the Corvette looks marvelous.  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, or holes.  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 below.  The interior lights do not always work from both sides.  This car has not been smoked in; there is no aroma whatsoever.


Mechanical

This car seems to be in good mechanical condition It is an exceptional driver that is 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 the 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
Condition

 

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.

 

Thank you for looking and please email or call with any questions.
