For sale at Gateway Classic Cars in our St. Louis showroom is a 1971 Chevrolet Corvette convertible. This two top Brands Hatch Green Corvette Stingray is ready for the open road. The Saddle vinyl interior is the perfect match for the Brands Hatch Green exterior. The car just came out of a 25-year slumber and was fitted with all new bushings, ball joints, bearings, shocks, brakes & calipers, mufflers, tires, interior and paint. Not quite a frame off restoration, but also not frame off money. The big bonus is the 4-speed and auxiliary hardtop. The C3 hardtops very well may be one of the best-looking hardtops to be fitted to a car. The beige soft top was also replaced and goes very well with the Saddle interior.
1971 would be the last year for high horsepower. Through 1971, engines were rated as gross horsepower which meant power was rated with no engine accessories that would rob power. In 1972, horsepower was rated with all engine accessories and power looked as if it fell right off the shelf. Power was indeed down, but not nearly as much as it looked on paper. This one factor plays a significant role in collectability making the 1971 a more sought-after model year than ‘72s. This 1971 is powered by the 270 horsepower 350 and is mated to a fun shifting 4-speed. In 1972 this engine would be rated at 200 horsepower and the 454 would be rated at 270. It would be an interesting matchup; cubic inches and torque vs. the lightweight small block. The small block may be the better choice with fewer fill ups at the gas station and cooler engine temperatures.
