Appraised By: Bob Kroupa

Substantiation:1971 Corvette T-Top (Coupe) with VIN #194371S103xxx. The VIN indicates this Vette was built in December, 1970, early in the 1971 production year. The mileage of 69,100 is reported to be original.

The paint color is Mille Miglia Red and is coupled with a Black Vinyl interior. Both are considered to be in good condition and are correct for this model year. The interior is completely 'stock'; the seats, carpet and dash are in excellent condition. The AM/FM radio is correct and was an option for this model.

This Corvette is powered by an optional 454-365 motor coupled with an automatic transmission. It, too, is correct for the model year as evidenced by the 'matching numbers'. The engine compartment is clean, the chrome shielding is in place and the air cleaner is correct.

The curb appeal of this 1971 Corvette is excellent with its chrome bumpers, new old stock tires that are enhanced by the optional deluxe wheel covers that were a rare option and only offered for the 1969 through 1973 model years. In addition, the spare tire is original.

Other options include power steering and brakes as well as the tilt-telescopic steering column.

An important ingredient in establishing the price of a Corvette is documentation. This Corvette was purchased from the original owners. The purchase included all the original delivery documents as well as the original bill of sale and protect-o-plate.

Most importantly, the originality of this Corvette has been substantiated by a 4-star Bowtie from the Boston NCRS Nationals in 2007 as well as a 97.5 Top-Flight award from the Las Vegas Regional Meet in 2007.

We place a value of $32,400 on this very original 1971 Corvette Coupe. This model showed a 10% appreciation factor in average price during the past year.

Appraiser's Price: $32,400
