1969 Chevrolet Corvette convertible Description

1969 Corvette Convertible – 427/390, 4-speed, a/c – ORIGINAL UNRESTORED
Survivor with 68K miles, matching numbers driveline, original paint, glass (including windshield), T3 headlights, shocks, and exhaust–Cortez silver with dark green interior. Ordered by a serviceman in April of 1969 at Frank Chevrolet in Portland, OR, built in October and in December, exported to Germany where he was stationed. The car came back to California and was sold in May of 1974 with 52K miles. The second CA owner kept it garaged until 2000 and only put 7K miles on it. From that point on it was always in collector car care.
It’s well documented with a three-inch binder of factory/dealership docs, owner registrations, titles and maintenance history. All factory original parts on the car except for a new top installed in 2000. Also at that time the water pump, fan clutch and rear transmission mount were also replaced. Brakes were also serviced and the flywheel resurfaced. When I purchased in 2014, all original engine components were rebuilt including the fuel pump, carburetor, alternator and starter. The radiator was re-cored using the original channels and tanks. New vintage A/C plugs, distributor cap and reproduction plug wires, coil, all hoses and belts were installed along with a one-wire electronic ignition. New mufflers were installed as well as Goodyear Speedway redline bias-ply tires including the spare. Everything works except the windshield washer. I had a set of headrests done and packaged up the originals as they were brittle and one was cracked. The clock works part of the time, enough to get through judging. The a/c dryer was replaced and still uses R12–blows 40 degrees.
Driving the car takes you back in time. It rides tight and drives straight. It’s a very enjoyable car with bullet-proof docs and history. Comes with a matching factory hardtop. NCRS Top Flight (local chapter 2015 and regional 2016). It wouldn't take much to make it ready for nationals. According to the C3 Registry, .0038% of the 38,762 Corvettes built for 1969 were built with this configuration–approximately two!
