Finding a real original C3 Chrome bumper Corvette's in great and solid condition is getting harder and harder, and how often do you see one in this rare and original Cortez silver color? And all original? And with its numbers matching engine and trans still installed? Not often we can tell you. Its the perfect combination of a well taken care of original C3 Corvette convertible, with all its factory pieces still in place, but upgraded and partially restored so it will last for many more years to come. Keep in mind that the best driving cars are always the original ones.
In 1968 Chevrolet introduced the all new C3 model. The design and car was completely new although some details came from the earlier years. The exterior, the complete interior and the drive lines were all new for that year. The new C3 was just a more modern styled car and very sleek and its appearance was also sometimes compared to that of a shark, something that we can only understand as these C3 Corvettes really had much more aerodynamic bodies than its predecessors. The all new designed dashboard gave its owners a real sporty feel as the centre console was equipped with 5 additional gauges to monitor the engine and combined with its factory tacho and other features the interior of these Corvettes were great. In 1969 the Corvette received only some smaller details changes and upgrades, but the biggest change was that the all new Chevy 350 cui V8 was introduced.
The car we present to you here is a 1969 model and for many it's considered as the best looking and most iconic looking Corvette's ever produced. Its a rare example seeing its a genuine and factory optioned 4 close ratio transmission car (the base transmission was a manual 3-speed) and in a rare and very desirable color combination. Its estimated that it is around 6-700 cars ever produced. Besides that its equipped with some nice options such as Power steering , power front disc brakes, Side pipes and than some. The car is a genuine proven low mile car with only 59000 miles driven since sold new.
The car also still carries its factory original interior which in amazing condition and as stated earlier it also still carries its factory original engine and transmission that were completely rebuild and checked recently. According to its last owner the car had spend almost its whole live in the dry sunny states and we believe that to be correct seeing the cars amazing original condition. PTTM is going to completely check the car and it will also receive a complete new top to bottom Quality paint job in its original Cortez silver color. The car is in overall great condition and can be driven and enjoyed as its completely inspected and serviced for many more miles to come.
Its also equipped with brand new classic Goodyear tires. And as with any great sports car, the combination of the V8 and manual 4-speed transmission as good as it gets. With an automatic car, its just much less fun and tons of power (up to 35% or more) gets lost from the transmission to the rear axle as were a manual trans maybe only looses 5%. So all in all, buying a 4 speed is a great and much more sporty feature and the manual cars are also more collectible and valuable than any automatic car as the normally are build in larger numbers.
This means you will get a complete, super rare color combo, a great engine and trans combination, a fully serviced and inspected ALL original Corvette for a great price which will leave room for growth of your investment as well as these C3 Vette's, especially the early model years are going up in value fast. PTTM is very proud to present this true icon of American sports cars to its clients, and it's a car that fits perfectly in any car collection. Its a very stylish car and will also get you thumbs up everywhere you take it. Its a price winner on any local car show as well!
