We all know that the Corvette name carries a special place in car world for so many and has been the model of cutting edge design for the automotive industry for decades. And arguably the C-3 design when it came out was truly was ahead of its time with its radically shaped fenders, front end and gill-like front fenders that resembled a Mako Shark. Also new was the completely re-designed interior that featured a multiple gauge cluster in the center and large round dials in front of the driver for the speedometer and matching tachometer. And another first was a fiber-optic system that monitored exterior lights.
GR Auto Gallery is pleased to present this unmolested example of the 1971 Chevrolet Corvette LT-1 for your consideration. This vehicle has only had one single owner its entire life, hosts what is believed to be the original powertrain, has not had any major repairs to the body and has been maintained exceptionally well since new! There are so few of these that have not been “souped up” or altered in major ways which makes this a real rarity and perfect for the purists or collectors. From the factory this came with the 4-Speed close ratio manual transmission, AM/FM radio, tilt and telescopic steering wheel, t-tops, heater, power steering, power windows and power brakes. Along with the vehicle, the owner has kept wonderful records of normal service and also extra manuals and paperwork, including the original Protect-O-Plate.. More often than not these vehicles end up giving way to age and finding one that has had this amount of work completed to them is a real testament to the popularity of the “Mako Shark” design. This one is as real as it gets and has all the right pieces! Call or email us today with any questions you may have on this wonderful unmolested example of the 1971 Chevrolet Corvette LT-1!
