- Description: There are few more desirable Stingrays out there than this 1971 Chevrolet Corvette LT1 convertible. This is a well-respected survivor that loves to show off its rare color. But the part you’ll be showing off the most is the highly correct presentation of the almighty numbers-matching LT1 V8. War Bonnet Yellow is a great Corvette color. While popular, it was only available for a few years, so ‘Vette people love it. That’s why we’re particularly excited that this special hue is not only factory-correct, but also it shows all the right signs of being factory original. It’s the ideal mix where you have the right hints of aged-in look in the finish, but an overall great panel quality. So it lets the world know it has a well-respected preservation that has endured more than a half-century. Authenticity means stylish chrome bumpers, complete badging, headlights that rest flush, and stock turbine-style wheel covers. And of course, the LT1 has the special hood with a black stripe package that helps outline the power dome. Beneath the black folding roof is a saddle tan leather interior that’s a stylish complement to the yellow on the outside. And just like the exterior, this factory-correct color appears to be mostly original. There are replacement components for those who want a fresher update, but the Corvette community especially appreciates a highly stock example that shows a little character in the leather. After all, it can only be original once, and so this one even leaves the Delco AM/FM radio there for display. Plus, as a great Corvette, it remains a great driver’s machine. There’s a grippy sports steering wheel, large speedo and tach in front of you, and a full auxiliary readout package prominently to the side. And that shifter is exactly where you want your right hand to be. Under the hood is what makes this car extra-special. This is the numbers-matching LT1 350 cubic-inch V8. It’s the ultimate small block built with forged internals and solid lifters direct from Chevy. And as you look over the whole engine bay, you’ll spot the right pieces, like the finned aluminum valve covers, Winters aluminum intake, and the correct big Holley four-barrel carburetor. This special V8 fires up with gusto, and you can just tell it’s ready to hit the road. And you’re in full control thanks to the four-speed manual transmission. In fact, speaking of control, this Stingray is a terrific sports car with a fully independent sports suspension, power steering, and four-wheel power disc brakes that have been given a more recent investment. The sale comes complete with the owner’s manual. Rarity, power, preservation, and beauty all come together on this LT1 Stingray. So if you’re a collector, you know this needs a prime space in your garage. Call today!!!
