Mille Miglia Red w/Red interior, 350/330hp, LT-1, 4-speed manual transmission.

1971 Mille Miglia Red Corvette LT-1 Convertible.  Of the 1,949 total LT-1’s built-in ’71, less than 1/3 were Convertibles.  This all-original, un-hit example is still titled to the original owner and is heavily documented.  Features an original chassis, drivetrain (smog pump is in a box and comes with), paint, interior, and soft top.  Excellent “time capsule” Corvette!  LT-1 Convertibles are rare, for sure.  But, untouched, original examples that are great drivers are seldom, if ever seen!  Add in the color combo of Red/Red and you’ve got a highly desirable “time capsule”.

Comes with an extensive inspection report by a renowned C3 Corvette expert verifying the correctness and originality of the car.  See below . . .
