Chevrolet Corvette Stingray 1969 – SPRZEDANY

Z 400-konnym, siedmiolitrowym silnikiem, skrzynią manualną, bocznymi wydechami i fabryczną klimatyzacją, a także niskim przebiegiem i w pełni oryginalną specyfikacją, ten Chevrolet Corvette Stingray zdaje się być spełnieniem marzeń dla wielu miłośników modelu. Konfiguracja z silnikiem L68 była najrzadszą po wyścigowej L88, wyprodukowano ich w 1969 roku jedynie 2072 egzemplarzy. Co ciekawe, ten pięknie zachowany egzemplarz nigdy nie przechodził renowacji. Z oryginalnym lakierem i wnętrzem oraz przebiegiem jedynie 34 tys. mil, w kolorze Daytona Yellow, prezentuje się fenomenalnie. Jego cena na aukcji domu aukcyjnego Mecum osiągnęła pułap 126,5 tysiąca dolarów, czyli ponad 430 tysięcy złotych, przekraczając przedaukcyjne wyceny.

A matching-numbers original Tri-Power 427/400 HP engine and 4-speed driveline, low mileage, factory air conditioning and factory side exhaust are just the beginning of the long list of attractive features presented by this beautiful 1969 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray Coupe. With the horsepower race still at full pitch in Detroit, Corvette’s range of big-block engines was carried over from 1968 to the 1969 model year. At just 2,072 units, the L68 427 CI Tri-Power engine was the rarest of the production big-block powerplants offered in 1969, the obvious exception being the racing L88. Based on the same 2-bolt-main cast-iron block as the single Holley 4-barrel-equipped L36 rated at 390 HP, the L68 satisfied the buyer’s desire for exotica with the same triple 2-barrel Holley Tri-Power carburetion system featured on the intimidating 435 HP L71 version. The differences, considered acceptable trade-offs by those who purchased the L68, was its lower 10.25:1 compression ratio and the hydraulic camshaft in place of the L71’s high-maintenance solid-lifter piece. Despite those differences, the L68 still offered incredible acceleration in large part because its torque rating of 460 lb-ft equaled that of the L71. The 1969 Corvette benefited from serious overall development work that included rear frame reinforcements and increased interior shoulder room. Perhaps most significantly, wheel and tire width was increased by 1-inch to 8-inches, a significant advance accompanied by stiffer suspension tuning. Documented with the original tank sticker, Protect-O-Plate, keys and owner’s kit, this 1969 Corvette L68 4-speed coupe is a well-equipped example showing just 34,055 miles on the odometer. A time capsule discovered in very original, unrestored condition, including the original paint and interior, the car subsequently received a meticulous nut-and-bolt restoration. It retains a high degree of original components, including the engine and original black leather interior, and it is sharply finished in the original color of Daytona Yellow. Desirable options include rare factory air conditioning, power steering and brakes, redline tires on Rally wheels, side exhaust, tinted glass, power windows, a tilt/telescopic steering column and a Delco AM/FM radio. This car’s factory options, equipment and paperwork place it in the upper echelon of 1969 Corvettes, and a car of this magnitude is difficult to find even if you have been searching for years.
