Vehicle Description:

Welcome to THE VETTE NET, your modern destination for buying and selling your Corvette. We are a Nationwide and International Corvette Brokerage Network, in business since 1998 and Lifetime Business Member #991 of the National Corvette Museum.

The 1971 Corvette models have a particular place in the collector's heart, being right next to the most coveted (and expensive) 69 and 70 models, however sharing the same look and appreciation potential... When you add to the equation a highly optioned and documented Big Block Convertible, you surely have a winner.

We are pleased to offer you today a very special example, a Red Convertible which due to its options, condition and pedigree may be one of the best values of its vintage.   First of all, it comes with the 454 LS5 engine rated at 365HP, all original with the correct VIN and suffix stamped on the engine pad as seen in the pics.  It is mated with the matching number 4-speed transmission.  Complete options as follows:

  •     LS5 - 454/365 HP engine
  •     4-speed transmission
  •     auxiliary hard top
  •     air conditioning
  •     power windows
  •     tilt/tele steering wheel
  •     custom PO2 wheel covers
  •     optional axle ratio
  •     AM/FM radio
  •     White stripe tires
  •     custom interior

This special Corvette is heavily documented with the tank sticker, manufacturer's statement of origin (MSO), complete title history since new, plenty or receipts and repair paperwork.

The multitude of options recommends this vehicle as a potentially low production number, accordingly fairly rare.  Car wreaks of originality and all components are in working order.  Recent "restoration" efforts include the AC, hard top, paint buffing, engine and undercarriage detail, refresh fluids, tune-up, etc. 

Miles are correct at 74000 which indicates an average of approx 1700/year, a very low mileage for this model. 

According to the prestigious Hagerty's Price Guide, a number 1 Corvette in this category could fetch upwards of $78900, as seen here.  with number 2 at $53600.  This fine example, a strong number 2+, clearly is positioned in the middle, so, for the money, it is a great investment, considering also the upward trend of the market lately.
