1971 Corvette T-Top Classified Ad Details:

Year/Model: 1971 T-Top Corvette for sale
Ad Number:25812
Date Posted: 08/20/2018
VIN: 194371S121127
Miles:Showing 36K
Exterior:Nevada Silver
Interior:Black leather
Comments:Spring of 2017, I found this original Corvette in a climate controlled garage where a small collection had been stored for many years. There was no documentation to be found but a thorough, expert inspection indicated that this was an original car with no rust issues or evidence of damage repairs.

After the initial start up procedures, it was kept under a cover in my carport briefly, then trailered to Tuscaloosa Chevrolet's climate controlled shop for four months. They completed a long list of service items over several months while I moved to Florida. It now resides in my own climate controlled garage. I drive it once or twice a month to local cruise-ins and car shows, where it draws a lot of attention.

The paint and interior appear to be original. The black leather interior has no rips or tears, and no cracks in the dash pad. All the gauges work (except the clock, of course) and the headlights and wipers operate perfectly. The carpet is in good condition other than a small wear hole on the drivers side. The paint is faded a little on the upper surfaces, and there are some minor scratches and dings... to be expected on an original, unrestored car. The odometer is showing just over 36K (which appears to be original mileage) and the engine is the correct, numbers-matching 454/365hp engine. The automatic transmission is very clean and was probably replaced or rebuilt at some point in the recent past.
