1969 striped Corvette
You are bidding on a 1969 Corvette Roadster with original numbers matching motor as can hopefully be seen in pictures (numbers do match but difficult to get picture of numbers on the block). Car has been recently purchased from long term owner who has not driven or run car since 1992 which is evident by the tag which expired in 1992 when the car was parked in a garage due to a gas tank leak and has not been driven since. We have started the engine and it sounds excellent and starts very easily. There is no evidence of engine damage and car appears to be very mechanically sound. Car has a very solid frame with only surface rust. The car was optioned with rare factory air conditioning, leather seats, tilt, telescopic, base motor 350/300hp, automatic transmission, ps, pb, and as far as we can tell factory side exhaust. As can hopefully be seen in the pictures (which were taken on 9/30/2007) the car needs total restoration although with some brake work and fine tuning could be driven. Tires are in good shape given their age but would probably need to be replaced if you plan to drive the car regularly. For the most part as should be evident by the pictures the car is all their and appears mostly original with exception of paint which is obvious. The lines on the car are very good for a vette of this age. The car will require some body work, mainly around the front valence and the passenger side headlight bucket which has a ripple in it. The top works mechanically and is usable but in similar shape as the rest of the car (needs to be replaced but could be used as is). Any questions about the car should be addressed to my father at xxx-xxx-xxxx who I am setting up this auction for as he knows much more about the car than ebay. Email questions will go through me and I will try to get back in a timely manner. To summarize the car it is a good car for a winter project to totally restore a numbers matching 1969 roadster or for someone to do a few minor things to and drive around in a not so showy convertible vette. Either way you can't go wrong buying a ragtop stingray. Good luck and happy bidding.
