Daytona Yellow w/Black interior, 350/300hp, 3-spd. automatic transmission.
The ’70 model year was an interesting one for Corvette and GM as a whole. The previous year saw a dock workers strike the halted production of ’69 vehicles for weeks. As a result, after the strike was settled, John Delorean, who was head of Chevrolet at the time, decided to let production run all the way through December of that year. And because of this, Corvette production ended up being almost 39k units! A number not to beaten until ’79 production! So, the following year, because of the late start, Corvette production was cut to just a bit over 17k units. Less than half of the previous year! Because of this, the ’70 Corvette is the rarest Shark ever produced! It also happened to be a good year, as well! Changes included a subtle revision of the front and rear fenders, which included new style louvers for the front fenders and a flare on both the front and rear to help prevent rock chips. Exhaust tips were now rectangular for the first time ever. and the front grille was redesigned as were the parking lamps. Big block engine displacement was increased from 427ci to 454ci. Small block displacement remained at 350ci, but a new high-performance engine, designated LT-1 was introduced and featured mechanical lifters, high-rise intake manifold and a large Holley 4bbl carb. Overall, a good year for Corvette!
This very sharp ’70 came to us from a local So. CA. owner. It’s a great configuration. Small block Convertible with an automatic, power steering, power brakes and highly desirable factory air conditioning! The car has been nicely refurbished with a #’s matching, rebuilt 350/300hp (dressed like a 350hp). It’s a really nice driver with shinny paint, nice soft top and interior. What we like about it the most is that you can drive it and just have fun taking it anywhere! It’s a driver, but a very cool driver that you will be proud to own!
