1970 Corvette Convertible: rare LT-1 370 HP option and 4 sp!
Here is a matching numbers original CA blue paint licensed Corvette Convertible with the rare LT-1 option and Munci 4 speed finished in its original Laguna Grey over black in superb condition! 1970 being the first year offered, the LT-1 optioned 350 CI V8 produced 370 HP and incorporated 11:1 compression, 4 bolt forged steel crank and con rods, high flow heads, and aluminum forged pistons. Pretty trick stuff off the showroom floor in 1970: only 1287 being produced in coupe and convertible models.
This particular Vette has been subject extensive refurbishment just short of a frame-off. Engine rebuilt to factory spec, less than 5000 miles ago. New clutch installed at time of engine rebuild, Carb rebuilt by Ace Fuel, Radiator re-cored, Pertronic electronic ignition inside factory distributor fitted. Recent work completed includes new aluminized exhaust with new mufflers and stainless exhaust tips. New battery, new brakes with all four 4 piston calipers replaced. New front and rear suspension including bushings, ball joints, springs and Bilstein shocks. Body stripped to glass, block sanded and resprayed the original Laguna Grey paint code 992. Interior done by Sid's Upholstery with full leather seats, and new carpet, new weather-stripping, felts, and top seals. Dash removed, wiring sorted and all gauges functional. New radio and speakers. New European canvas top. Chrome bumpers triple dipped, all new emblems, door handles, and mirrors. Wheels restored with new stainless trim rings and new BFG Radial T/A tires fitted. Undercarriage professionally undercoated and restored. All vacuum operated headlights and wiper cowl refurbished and work properly.
This is one nice Corvette: mechanically it drives tight no squeaks or rattles, fantastic power, smooth steering and firm brakes. Interior and exterior are close to perfect and although not a frame-off rotisserie restoration the Vette achieves a very high level of presentation: inside, outside and underneath. The only fault I can see is Factory Fiberoptic option being present but the rear light indicator is non-op. Maybe not Bloomington perfect but damn close! Please call 650-261-1777 to see this outstanding Corvette.
