Every once in a while a wide-eyed guest will stare at one of our six-figure pro-touring Corvettes and turn to us and say: "That's nice, ut it's not really a vintage car anymore". And while we love ANY Corvette no matter what the owner's intentions, e can definitely understand that mindset. For purists, he only way to fully appreciate a vintage car is to experience it as it was originally designed. And that's why we're happy to see classics like this numbers-matching C3 continue to roll through our showroom. Born in 1969, ecked in stunning Fathom Green 2-stage and still churning an original 427, his first class drop-top is the kind of car that you simply buy, aintain and build equity in.

Beneath the sculpted hood you'll find the car's original "3963512" branded L36 (LM) V8, hich was assembled in Flint, ichigan (F) on October (10) 3rd, 03) 1969 and stamped with a matching partial VIN. Straight from the factory, his beefy big block utilized high performance internals to twist stout 10.25 to 1 compression into an even 390 horsepower! At the peak of the pavement-scorching mill, polished and decaled air cleaner swirls wind into a familiar Winters intake by way of a reliable Quadrajet carburetor. At the sides of that intake, orrect, ast iron heads hang stamped and polished valve covers over cast iron exhaust manifolds. And at the back of those heads, chrome-capped ignition system sequences spark through sleeved plug wires. When fired, he infamous 427 rumbles like an old school stoplight slayer. Its ancillary components are top notch in every way, ith GM-branded hoses, rust-free master cylinder and a correct Harrison expansion tank accompanying reproduction tower clamps, rebuilt alternator and a fresh aluminum radiator. And bright Chevy Orange engine skin is seated in a clean, atin Black frame.
