1969 Chevrolet Corvette Coupe

I guess I must be dumb

Cause you had a pocket full of horses

Trojan and some of them used

But it was Saturday night

I guess that makes it all right

And you say, "what have I got to lose?"

And honey, I say

Little red Corvette

Baby, youre much too fast, oh

Little red Corvette

You need a love thats gonna last...

For consignment, a Stingray from 1969. With a restoration started

in the late 1980s by the consignors father, then completed by the

talented hands of "The Vette Shop" from Warminster, Pennsylvania in

2003. It sports a big block 454ci V8, has many convenience options,

factory N14 side pipes and a removable body matching color T top.

1969 was a great year for the Corvette, with its curvaceous

sculpted lines and bodacious power from those 454 cubes...Read



Its 1969 and this Corvette is bathed in Monza Red over the

fiberglass moldings that make up the body. Bring on the Playboy

centerfold photographer as this design utilizes some wonderful

lines, has a retro throwback with the shark "gills" in satin silver

inserts within the front quarter, and uses glorious chrome (soon to

go away!). That chrome leads the way with a V shaped front bumper

and surrounding grille supports, all in good condition. A few small

bumps of inclusions are seen near the drivers hidden headlight.

Stingray now one word is showing up in badging just above the

"gills". Below on the rockers are the N14 side pipes complete with

guards. These provide a nice bark for the tones from the 454.

Chrome window surrounds and side view mirrors are there too. A T

top which has removable white fiberglass panels works flawlessly

and shows no leaks, but the consignor states that the car sat in a

garage for 12 years, so it will most likely need new seals due to

some dry rotting. In back a vertical rear glass has the long

"flying buttress" B pillars that gently land on the rear deck which

is adorned with the gas filler cap in the very center. The back of

the car leaves an impression also with the split chromed bumpers,

round taillights and a C O R V E T T E badge in the very center of

the bumpers. Paint is in overall very nice condition showing fairly

smoothly all around. 15 inch deep trim ringed rally wheels are on

all 4 corners and all are wrapped with raised white lettered BFG

Radial T/As.


In wonderful contrast to the exterior Monza Red, we offer up a

black leather covered sporty interior. This neat black first makes

its appearance on the door panels. Neatly molded and sculpted with

small striped black/charcoal broadcloth center panels the lock turn

knobs, door actuator, and armrest are housed here. Slipping into

the high back thin design buckets we have smooth black leather

bolsters and wide tuck and roll smooth black leather inserts. These

chairs show beautifully and have little wear. The center console

with its padded armrest/storage lid, with the remainder of the

console moving towards the dash in molded black plastic to cover

the hump. Also here is the shift lever, handbrake, temp wheels, and

ashtray surrounded in back plastic with shiny surrounding

trimmings. We see these center panels within this console as

showing some dirt and scratching. Moving up from the console we

have the radio which is an aftermarket Blaupunkt AM/FM/Cassette

system with a few EQ buttons. Also 5 gauges are lined up above in a

panel that monitors everything but your blood pressure (as the

brochure says!). A nice black rally steering wheel with a trio of

satin chromed center spokes which come together in the center and

mount up with the black center steering column. An angled dash

houses dual deep inset round speedo and tach as well as eyeball A/C

vents, and a few simple pulls. Padded black vinyl covers the dash

and dash top and is all in excellent condition. Black carpeting is

on the floors, and this wraps up a very clean

presentation...applause please for this sporty interior.


Under the forward flipping hood is a 454ci V8. This is not a

numbers matching engine block, however the consignor states the

original rotating assembly was placed into this block, but it is

not supported by any documentation so we will take the consignors

word for it. The engine block codes out to circa 1973-1975 454ci

V8. On top is a 4-barrel carburetor, and on back is the numbers

matching Muncie M20 4-speed manual transmission. On the back is the

factory correct coded Posi rear axle with 3.08 gearing. Headers are

installed and these blend with the side piping to provide the big

bark for the exhale.


Showing off very nicely with virtually no rust, and black painted

solid straight steel and floor pans. Independent SLA front

suspension, and full independent rear with a frame anchored

differential unit. The position of each rear wheel is established

with 3 links, tubular axle driveshafts, transverse strut rods, and

torque control arms with transverse leaf springs. Power disc

braking is on all 4 corners.
