1971 Chevrolet Corvette Description

For sale in our Chicago Showroom is this beastly 1971 Chevrolet Corvette. Powered by a LS-5 454 big block Chevrolet V8 engine factory rated at 365 horsepower, this fiberglass performance machine is a rocket. With the rare and sought after M22 4-speed manual transmission, you are always able to get yourself right in the sweet spot for making power. That LS-5 under the hood didn't stay at 365 horsepower, however. In 2007 this Corvette went through a full restoration, and that included a tear down of the big block to pump a bit more thump into it. It was bored .030" over and given a set of blueprinted oval port iron heads to maximize flow.

True Corvette fans will note the strange color combination. One of today's most popular colors, black, was never optioned in the '71 model year. This vehicle was originally painted Ontario Orange with a Saddle interior. The restorer of the vehicle wanted to have an original big block car with black paint and blue interior, but it didn't exist, so he made his own! During the restoration and entirely new fuel system, including gas tank and lines, were installed as well as a new ignition system and an overhaul on the A/C system. As one would expect, with all of that work this 'Vette drives like a dream; plenty of power, smooth road feel, and easy to drive.

This completely restored Corvette is beauty and the beast. It would look just as good sitting in a showroom in an aggressive pose to been shown off to friends and family as it would ripping through downtown after sunset showing the younger crowd what muscle really means. Options include: Air-Conditioning, AM/FM, T-Tops, Power Brakes, Power Steering, Tilt Wheel, Seat Belts, Leather Interior, Radial Tires and Alloy Wheels.
