Our Atlanta Showroom is proud to offer this 1969 Chevrolet Corvette. This drop top corvette is the right year to give you many years of great quality fun. At this price, she won’t last long. Bathed in red and black, they don’t get much better in the coke bottle shape. This 327 4 speed manual has a ¾ cam and reworked heads, new radiator and fan, expansion tank, new intake manifold, and a new vacuum system for the headlights with receipts. In 1969, small block engine displacement increased from 327ci (5.4 L) to 350ci (5.7 L), though output remained the same. All other engines and transmission choices remained unchanged from the previous year, though the L30 base engine was now the ZQ3 and the L79 motor was redesignated the L46. All cars featured 8-inch-wide steel wheels. Tire size remained the same, although this was the first year for optional white lettered tires and the last for red striped tires. Carried over from the previous year were seven available rear axle ratios ranging from 2.73 to 4.56. Standard ratio remained 3.08 with automatic and 3.36 with manual transmission. The optional Positraction rear axle, mandated on many engine/gearbox combinations, was installed on more than 95% of the cars. "Stingray" script nameplates appeared on front fenders, now one word, in contrast to the “Sting Ray” name used previously. Exterior door handles were redesigned so the finger plate would actuate the door, eliminating the separate release button. Backup lights were integrated into the inboard taillights, headlight washers were added, and front grilles were made all black. Side mounted exhausts and front fender vent trim were options for this year only. On the inside, revised door panels provided additional shoulder room in the C3's tighter cabin and headrests became standard. Steering wheel diameter was reduced from 16 to 15 inches to permit easier entry and exit, the ignition switch was moved from the dash to the steering column, and map pockets were added to the dash area in front of the passenger seat. Car and Driver magazine wrote in October 1968, “The small-engine Corvettes are marginally faster and extraordinarily civilized. Options include: radial tires, vinyl interior, rally wheels, am/fm radio, and power steering.
