This is a verified no hit, #s matching LT-1. Both tops.

This LT-1 is a verified no hit body with original #s match motor, trans and rear. It includes a 5 1/2 page inspection report from a knowledgeable Corvette person. It is also listed in the C3 registry. Overall very good 78,900 mile original car maintained as needed.
The legendary LT-1: It has been said it wouldn't be fair to compare to other small blocks, it is in the league of high performance big blocks and it weighs less. Only 1,287 LT-1s were built total in 1970, less than 500 were convertibles. This was also the year with the highest horsepower making it the most desirable. The LT-1 option had a hefty price tag of $448 compared to a big block that only cost $289.

EXTERIOR: No hit body. Each panel was inspected by a Corvette expert and noted as "no evidence of any prior damage". The gaps are real good. The LT-1s have the raised hood. It's repainted it's original and rare Laguna Gray color. Done in a base coat-clear coat. It is smooth and glossy. Minor imperfections if you look for them. The front bumper and grills are nice originals and fit nice. The weathershields are still behind the grills protecting the headlights. The rear bumpers, emblems and door handles were replaced. The white convertible top looks great. It also has a removable hardtop. It's repainted and overall very good shape. The windshield is replaced, weatherstrips are very good. The 15x8 rally wheels have new trim and the BFG tires look new.

INTERIOR: Replaced upholstery, door panels and carpet. Very good original dash, seat backs, seatbelts, visors and console. It is unabused, not damaged or cut. It still has correct reverse lockout shifter. The 6,500 redline tachometer is unique to the LT-1. Rear storage compartments are good, it still has the original date coded jack.

ENGINE COMPARTMENT: Verified original #s matching motor. The casting codes, dates and stamp pad have been inspected. It has correct heads, intake, carb, balancer, oil pan, exhaust manifolds, water pump etc. The finned valve covers, ignition shielding and alternator are correct. It even has the correct smog system. The vacuum pods for the headlights and wiper door were replaced. Every thing looks proper and tidy.

UNDERSIDE: Looking up at the motor it is clean Chevy orange, the starter looks fresh. Verified original #s matching M21 close ratio Muncie 4-speed. Original 3.70 posi rear. These cars have independent suspension front and rear. It has a combination of original and replaced components. The shocks, swaybar bushings, balljoints, idler arm and rear spring was replaced. The rear half shafts were rebuilt with new joints. It was noted in the inspection that the "car drives very nice with no vibrations". The exhaust is in excellent shape with correct square tips. These cars come with disc brakes at all 4 wheels. The e-brake assembly is hooked up. It has a solid original frame. The chassis was cleaned up and spray painted. The fiberglass floors are not damaged. The spare tire carrier is complete and in great shape.

This is an investment grade Corvette. It's very desirable, rare and verified authentic. Most likely there are only about 20 like this that exists. Less than 500 LT-1 convertibles were made, 8% were this color. How many survived?

I, Jay Grams, take pride in personally writing the descriptions for virtually every car for about the last 30 years now. A significant amount of effort goes into fact checking. What I am offering is my professional impression of the vehicle.
Our salesmen are happy to assist with descriptions and making sure your questions are answered. One great suggestion is letting us do a walk around video that explains the car's condition in detail.
