1969 was a very special for Corvettes. After the hastily introduced 1968 model, the 1969 came out strong and started a successful generation, later dubbed the C3, the third generation of Corvettes. Needless to say, the 1969 model is the most desirable "Bumper car" and it is sought both by collectors and enthusiasts alike for its unique appeal. When you couple it with options like Convertible, high horse power small block, 4 speed, snazzy color combinations, outstanding restoration... you come out with a winner.
This is what we are offering you today: a rare Riverside Gold Convertible with the matching numbers L46 350 engine rated at 350 HP, mated with the M21 4-speed manual transmission. A thorough off-frame restoration was just completed and basically every part was replaced with new, or reconditioned.
The correct Riverside Gold RPO 980 paint was applied February 2013. It is a quality PPG, base coat, clear coat which shines as it should. Interior is the correct ZQ4 - black vinyl with new carpet, new seat covers, original door panels renewed, all new functional gauges, new lenses, etc. AZ code rims, not correct dated, though.
Engine, freshly rebuilt, has the matching numbers (VIN and suffix), L46 350/350 11:1 compression, bored 30 over, 186 camel hump heads, 493 distributor, 9207 QuadraJet carburetor, ram horn exhaust manifold, new 2.5" exhaust all the way back. M-21 4 speed tranny rebuilt locally is period correct, 3.36 rear end with positraction and correct differential.
All new bushings, bearings, rotors, brakes, rebuilt calipers, new lines, new hydraulic master cylinder with bleeders. New LOF windshield, new Al Knoch convertible top and lot more... Only a few miles were added since the restoration, so it is practically a "brand new" classic. The only difference from the "stock look" of the time is a Chrome mirror installed on the passenger side, after the pics were taken.
Feel free to peruse the extensive album about the restoration and note the attention to details and dedication to authenticity. It is hard to duplicate such a restoration and the asking price alone will not even cover it, let alone the car to start with.
