Corvette Description

Chevrolet's LT-1 Corvette showed what could be achieved in a performance muscle car using a small block V8 in a lightweight automobile. In 1971, the 350 cubic inch LT-1 engine variant offered an emissions regulated 330 horsepower, but with a lightweight aerodynamic fiberglass body, the car still had power to spare. The Corvette design team of Zora Arkus-Duntov, William Mitchell, and Frank Winchell initially planned to move the third generation, or C3, Corvette's engine to a mid- engine location behind the driver for better balance and handling. Unfortunately, this idea was scrapped due to budgetary constraints, the lack of mid or rear-engine parts, and weight distribution issues. Although mid-engine prototypes were built, Corvettes would remain a front engine car until 2020. Chevy hired Larry Shinoda to develop the radically “coke bottle” shaped fiberglass body that would characterize Corvettes for 3 decades. Created as a merger of the Mako Shark II prototype draped over a Sting Ray chassis, Shinoda's design resembled the earlier 1964 Mako Shark concept car with its pointed nose, steep raked roofline, and flat, ducktail rear-end design. The car was offered either as a fixed roof coupe, a removable T-top roof and rear window, or soft top convertible with optional hard top (as in this example) 1971 LT-1 Corvette Convertible Stunning Ontario Orange 2 Time NCRS Top Flight Award Winner w/ Judging Sheets NCRS Document Validation and Shipping Data Report Original Window Sticker Protect-o-Plate in Original Booklet Original Owners Manual Original Keys and Key Cutouts Wheel Trim Ring Instruction Sheet 350/ 330HP LT-1 V8 w/ Holley 4 Barrel Carburetor 4 Speed Close Ration Manual Transmission Torque: 360 ft lbs @ 4000 rpm 0-60 mph: 6 sec; top speed: 137 mph A legitimate 140 MPH Sting Ray with advanced long travel suspension High performance engine components achieved similar power to big block Corvette engines Last of the chrome steel bumper C3 Corvettes PLEASE NOTE: SALE PRICES DO NOT INCLUDE APPLICABLE SALES TAX, LICENSE, REGISTRATION FEES AND $499 SERVICE AND RECONDITION FEE.
