One of two fascinating 'barn find' C3 Chevrolets being offered in this sale, this left-hand drive Stingray vacated the Corvette production line in October 1969 and was one of 16,633 Convertible versions produced during that model year. It has had one registered keeper since being imported to the UK in 1996 and its last tax disc expired during July 1997. Whilst in the US, the Chevy was reputedly modified for drag racing and nowadays features a 454ci (7.4-litre) V8 that drives through a four-speed manual gearbox to wider than standard wire wheels and tyres sited under flared wheel arches. The engine (the block casting number of which is 3999289) features an Edelbrock manifold, 'Ram Flo' air filter and finned rocker covers, and Holley carburettor. The 'Big Block' powerplant exhausts through a pair of beefy side pipes. The odometer currently registers an unwarranted 32,709 miles and the vendor classes the bodywork, Deep Red paintwork, Red/Grey striped cloth trim, engine and transmission as all being in 'barn find' order. It is now rare to find these classic Stingrays in unrestored condition and, being sold without reserve, 'TKF 107G' will surely make a very interesting restoration project for one of the model's many enthusiasts.
