Monza Red w/Black interior, 454/390hp, 4-spd. manual transmission.
The ’70 model year will go down as one of the lowest production runs in Corvette history. A mere 17,316 units were built. There’s a reason for this.
Back in ’69, there was a dock strike. And as a result, John DeLorean allowed Corvette production to continue to the end of the year. Because of this, there were 38,762 units built. So, ’70 production started very late and less than half the Corvettes of ’69 were built, making any ’70 a fairly rare example.
This Monza Red Convertible is a truly special car. Somehow, it managed to survive 53 years in pristine, original condition, having only been driven 19k miles since it rolled out of St. Louis! One of the previous owners is a very good client of ours and a renown collector. He was the car’s caretaker for 40 years and Corvette Mike maintained it for him! The paint is very shiny, the interior shows little wear, the soft top still looks great, and it runs just like a 19k Corvette should . . . Excellent! Options include the #’s matching LS5 engine, mated to an M21 close ratio 4-spd. manual transmission, am/fm radio, power brakes, power steering, power windows and luggage rack.
She’s just waiting for the next caretaker to drive her home!
