The Chevrolet Corvette has been produced in seven generations. The first model, a convertible, was designed by Harley Earl and introduced at the GM Motorama in 1953 as a concept show car. Originally built in Flint, Michigan and St. Louis, Missouri, the Corvette is currently manufactured in Bowling Green, Kentucky. The third generation Corvette, patterned after the Mako Shark II concept car, was introduced for the 1968 model year and was in production until 1982. Engines and chassis components were mostly carried over from the C2 but the body and interior were new.
Registered new on 20th November 1969 this wonderfully presented Corvette Stingray is offered in Daytona yellow with a white vinyl roof over a stylish looking black leather interior! The paintwork presented very well as does the interior and the Stingray is finished with correct wheels and tyres in good order all round. Imported into the UK in 1998 the previous owner acquired the vehicle circa 20 years ago and it has been well maintained ever since, always being garaged and maintained where necessary. Offered with a sizeable history file documenting various works carried out by Corvette specialists, the UK registration document, previous MoT test certificate records, and sundry invoices. This 350 bhp, four-speed manual transmission, roadster sounds fantastic when on song and is a joy to drive.
