Lot #714 - In the late 60's in the main street America, the Big Block Corvette was the "King of the Road". Brutally fast, with nimble handling and good brakes, they earned the title "America's Sports Car". As always, they were expensive but if you wanted to go fast and you could afford it, you bought a Corvette. Moreover, if you wanted the fastest street Corvette you checked the option for one of the thundering 427ci engines!
The Big Block roadster offered here has recently received a nut & bolt body off restoration using only original replacement or the highest quality restoration parts and improved accessories available. Professionally restored with original intent and expectations to keep the car with no expense spared. Convenience options complimenting this roadster include auxiliary hardtop, AM/FM radio, Power 4-wheel S/S disc brakes, 4-speed, 3.36 positraction rear-end, side mount exhaust and Air Conditioning! Finished in the most desirable Rally Red exterior and Black interior color combination and powered by one of the most intimidating Big Blocks ever built respectfully earned this car the nickname "The Red Rat". This "Little Red Corvette" was built for absolute driving pleasure and convenience, yet able to challenge any intimidation and is fresh and ready for the streets or the most challenging vintage race track! Early production (#773) car built in first two weeks of production!
