Description

Lot #189 - Professionally restored by a Corvette specialty shop and driven two years in a row to Hot August Nights in Reno from Washington state. This is proof you can have a hot rod that you can drive and enjoy. You can sit in this '69 and feel the power just as it idles. The 4-speed automatic transmission with overdrive makes it a road-trip king. It is a strong runner. An original Cortez Silver has been repainted with Monza Red. The paint that covers this iconic fiberglass body looks incredibly clean. It is free of orange peel and shines well. The doors shut with ease and reveal body panel gaps that line up quite well. All of the chrome on the car shines and is true and bright, including fender vents, luggage rack and exhaust tips. As you sit in the black bucket seats you will notice super clear gauges, not foggy at all. The 3-spoke steering wheel with the unforgettable Corvette flags sits in an all-black dash, and a nice modern touch is the updated stereo. A Kenwood head unit now rests in the dash as well as a Kenwood 6-disc changer in the rear. The carpet is nice and plush. This restoration was done right.
