eBay Listing: 1970 Corvette Stingray Convertible
What was so magical about Detroit muscle in the year 1970? Was it the excess of unburdened horsepower or was it the styling? Looking back it was a simpler time before emissions controls choked engines and before OPEC started the gas shortage. This was a time when horsepower reigned supreme and when the muscle car was king in its original purest incarnation.
And the one of the top American-made sports car in 1970 was undoubtedly the Corvette. The C3 with its Coke-bottle styling derived from the Mako Shark II concept car looks fast just standing still. For many years the Corvette had the best of everything. It was and still is the breeding ground for innovation in American sports car design.
Today’s featured car is a 1970 Corvette Stingray equipped with a 454 C.I. engine, which originally had 390 horsepower. It’s a factory convertible 454 4 speed, with a numbers matching driveline, and documenting paperwork. The bright red color just pops to the eye. And with black interior, black convertible roof style, and the factory specifications, there is just a lot that is right with this vehicle. If you’re longing for a simpler time and a sweet ride, this Corvette Stingray could be it.
