Description

As far as practical classics go, few cars beat the third generation Chevrolet Corvette. Combining comfort, power, reliability and strikingly good looks, the Corvette C3 was produced over one and a half decades, spanning multiple stylistic changes and engine choices in what would become the brand’s longest-running sports car model. From the early “chrome bumper” cars to the late Pace Car and Collector Edition cars, the Corvette has become a cultural icon of the American mystique and love for the open road.

This early example, a rare 1970 model, is mechanically sorted and sports a rebuilt, overbored 454cu engine. Its superlative cosmetic restoration has made it into a multiple show winner that can be enjoyed reliably on a daily basis.
