1970 Corvette Coupe
LS-5 Big Block with four speed
Welcome to big torque!
This 1970 Corvette coupe is in excellent condition. It is a matching numbers car with a "last of the high compression" - big block motor. The LS-5 454 cubic inch motor generates 390 horse power and 500 ft. lbs. of un-holy torque. It is connected to Muncie M-2o wide ratio 4-speed transmission and a Hurst shifter with a 3:08 rear-end ratio. Lots of torque down low but great cruising gears, too! Engine, trans and rear end are all original to the car with correct numbers and born dates.
It is color code correct 975 - Marlboro Maroon - a rare one year color for C-3! - with a correct coded 424 - deluxe leather interior in Light Saddle. In the evening the stock metallic color goes to dark red and in sunlight it has a unique brighter salmon tinted hue. The color combination of Marlboro Maroon and Saddle is - stunning!
This car has factory tinted windows and features the factory options of Rally wheels, power steering and power windows, as well as an after-market Corvette logo AM-FM stereo by Classic Car Stereo - that sounds great! - retaining all of the stock looks, location and hardware.
The car has had a fairly recent repaint in the correct Marlboro Maroon, and a new interior - a cosmetic refresh! - and retains a clean, stock appearing engine bay - with its original intake, carb, air filter and ignition shielding for radio optioned cars. It has been upgraded with an aluminum radiator to keep this big block running cool.
The car drives perfectly - like a 1970 retro dream! - with no unusual noises - and is smooooooth! The car is as clean underneath as it is on top with recent suspension rubber and a full exhaust system - that sounds great, too! Also, all gauges are fully functioning.
We welcome you to give this one a test drive and experience the beauty of this unique '70 dream car
and..... to feel the thrust of this torque monster.
