1971 Chevrolet Corvette Coupe Description

Ihad this car listed for sale last week and it did not meet my reserve, So today Iput it on my lift and was going to start stripping it down for restoration. I stopped when I found what I believe to be evidence that it isaoriginal Big Block LS5 car.So I will try one more time to see if this car interests anyone to restore on their own.

The 1st thing is the car has the big block hood, when I removed the hood fin I found evidence of the factory yellow paint underneath it and there is yellow paint on the underside of the hood..One of theprior owners also put L48 badges on the hood and you can see where the 454 holes were filled in.

The 2nd thing I found is this car has a Copper Radiator andthe long Brass expansion vale that was only used on the LS5 Automatic with Air Conditioning Cars

3rd thing This car hasRear Stabilizer Bar and they were only installed on Big Block cars.

There is nothing in the VIN that identifies the Engine size andto be Honest the Emission sticker is missing. The Interior was redone over 25 years ago by the previous owner.

So this is a 1971 Corvettecurrently with a Non Original 350 engine, Automatic.Motor Runs strong and Drives good. When I put it on the lift today I noticed that the seep hole in the water pump isdripping.Carneeds apaint job, According to the last owner car was painted about 30 years ago. The Interior needs freshening, The door panels and Console are all good but the UpperDash Pad is cracked, Theseats need to be redone andthe carpet is discolored andneeds replaced. I am including new Seat Covers, Seat Backs and Carpet set with the sale.Also as you see in the photos the center Gauges were changed out but I have the completefactory center gauge unit that goes with the car.The Front and Rear Suspension and Brake systemwasrebuilt by the prior owner.Car has Headers and flowmaster mufflers.I removed the spare tire carrier to show photos of the underside so I do have the carrier and spare tire that I will be putting back in the car before its sold.I also have the 4 center caps for the wheels, just think It looks better with them off.Also the Hood does close tight,The pictures show it up but I just didn't close it when pictures were taken.

This is a Rare Option Car, Factory paint Sunflower Yellow, 1 of 1,177 of 21,801 cars produced. LS5 Big Block 1 of 5,097Car also has theDeluxe Interior option 1 of 2,602 cars with deluxe interior and Power Windows 1 of 6,191 car produced.
