Introduced in 1968 as the third generation of Corvettes, the Stingrays, now spelled in one word, quickly became very popular at the time... Later, the models between 1968 and 1972 gained a special place in the line-up being called the "Bumper cars" due to the Chrome steel bumpers adorning the front and the rear end. Unfortunately, this solution made the cars hard to be insured and, starting partially in 1973 the metal bumpers were replaced by the less popular poly-urethane ones.
The 1971 Chevrolet Corvette is one of the least changed from the previous year. This was the aftermath of the labor problems during '69 and '70. The biggest changes are in the motor to reduce the octane requirements from previous years as mandated by GM. This took higher priority than any cosmetic changes. One thing that was changed was the parking light lenses, most 71's have amber lenses although some early production models have clear. The resin process used to form body parts was also updated to increase quality. This was the last year for the M22 "Rock Crusher" heavy duty transmission. It was named the "Rock Crusher" because of the sounds it made when shifting. Still no black Vettes this year on the standard order sheet.
The model we are offering you has sustained a thorough restoration with new paint, new interior, new top, new tires... Basically, all gone through. It comes equipped with the correct looking 350 engine rated at 270HP mated with automatic transmission. It has AC, PS, PB.
All is in working order and is now ready for a new home or collection.
