This exceptional LT-1 Corvette is remarkable in many ways. This Donnybrooke Green beauty registers only 34,000 miles (title states exempt) and is an exceptional California survivor with a completely documented owner history. It is truly a time-capsule that is completely original and unrestored and is also stated to have a completely original drivetrain. Reliable sources show that of 1,287 1970 LT-1 Corvettes produced, only 400 were convertibles, such as this special car.

Famously known in Corvette circles and on judging fields as “Donny Boy,” this superb machine has been featured in multiple publications. The renowned LT-1 engine is a high performance 350-cid V-8 that produces an impressive 370 horsepower. This unit is connected to a M22 four-speed manual transmission; additional mechanical features include a 3.55:1 Posi-traction rear end, transistor ignition and power four-wheel disc brakes.

The interior is presented in a matching green vinyl with an AM/FM radio and the soft-top is white. This fine car also has the auxiliary, removable hardtop that is also in Donnybrooke Green. The Rally wheels are fit with Firestone F70x15 white stripe tires. The sleek look is assisted by vacuum-operated retractable headlights and the windshield wipers are similarly concealed.

The original presentation of the paint, interior and engine compartment has resulted in a Bloomington Gold Survivor Award, Bloomington Silver certification as well as a NCRS Top Flight Award. All original awards, judging sheets and pins are included with the sale of this remarkable LT-1.
