1971 Corvette Convertible Classified Ad Details$49,900.00 OBO Date Posted:07/21/2019 - United States
Known as the "Mouse that Roars," the early 1970's LT-1 corvette is a truly unique and special collector's corvette that is steadily increasing in value and interest. The 1971 LT-1 350 cu in with 330 horse power is just as fast off the line as a LS-5 but is more agile around corners because of the small block sitting in the front. This small block Corvette can deliver big block acceleration while being able to handle a road course like the best European competitors. Only available from 1970 thru 1972, the LT1 Corvettes are coveted by Corvette aficionados because they offer the zenith of performance and handling in the C3 Corvette and out of a 3 year production of 66,121 Corvettes only 4,977 (approximately 7.5%) had the LT1 option. These are the last of the legendary solid lifter Corvettes. This 1971 Millie Miglia LT1 convertible is an especially rare Corvette. Out of a total 1971 production of 21,800, only 1,949 were built with the LT1 engine option. Less than 10% of the production were painted Millie Miglia Red and less than 10% were built as convertibles. Additionally, this one had a hard top that is in great shape as well. By extrapolation, it may be estimated this is 1 of 20 1971 Millie Miglia LT1 Corvette convertibles.
The 1971 Mille Miglia Red, with Black interior and Black soft top AND a Black Hard top, LT1 convertible, being offered for sale, is powered by a 350ci V8, with a compression ratio of 9.0:1, producing 330 hp @ 5600 rpm and 360ft.lbs. of torque @ 4000 rpm and has the M21 close ratio 4-Speed manual transmission. The thing that sold me on buying my dream corvette (and my 4th corvette ever), that is about as old as I am was the incredibly unique sound of the exhaust. You have to hear it to know what I mean! I felt like it was a time warp back to the early 70's muscle car era. Truly authentic, unique and specific to an LT-1 1971 corvette.
