Corvette Description

Cortez Silver w/Black interior, L71 427/435hp, 3-speed automatic transmission. The 1969 model year was a huge one for Corvette, in more ways than one! Because of a dock strike that had taken place earlier in the year, John Delorean had made the decision to extend production through the end of the year. As a result, there were 38,762 units built in ’69! A figure that wouldn’t be surpassed until 1974. But just because there were a lot of Corvettes built that year, doesn’t mean there weren’t some extremely rare examples that made it out of St. Louis in ’69! Such an example is this absolutely stunning Cortez Silver Coupe. What makes this one rare and unique is the Turbo 400 3-speed automatic transmission backing up the L71 427ci big block under the hood. One of only 255 427/435’s delivered in 1969 with an automatic transmission, this numbers matching big-block Corvette has benefitted from a complete, nut and bolt, frame-off restoration by renowned Corvette specialist Jeff Reade at American Motoring Memories. The car not only looks beautiful, but it drives like a “new ’69”. It starts up easily, idles steady with that familiar lope, and will definitely push you back in the seat when the accelerator is pushed! Documentation includes extensive photos of the restoration, receipts, owner’s kit, spare keys, and more! And if that’s not enough to get the blood pumping, this particular Corvette just so happens to have its original, C.C.A.S. Certified L71 engine still residing under its hood!
