1969 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray The sales brochure in 1969 claimed that the car had a gauge for everything but your blood pressure. Tachometer, ammeter, oil pressure, sweep second rally clock, fuel gauge, mileage and trip odometer, warning lights for seat belts, headlight position and door ajar. The center console houses fingertip controls for the heater, defroster, radio, vents, ashtray, cigarette lighter, shift lever and parking brake, plus an engine rating plate and softly glowing space-age fiber optics that monitor outside running lights. Color-keyed deluxe push button seat belts and inertia action shoulder belts, on the coupe, retract out of the way when not in use. From slimline bucket seats, drivers enjoy just the right feel of the new competition steering wheel with a resilient rim. On our showroom floor here at the Classic Auto Mall is a 427ci V8 powered 1969 Chevrolet Corvette. Beautiful lines for this year, the real racing form was taking shape. A numbers matching big block car in need of some TLC, but complete and drivable in its current condition or take it to the next level and create a show winner. Exterior It\'s 1969 and this Corvette is bathed in color close to Monaco Orange over the fiberglass moldings that make up the body. Numerous chips are present in both the fiberglass body as well as paint finish as well as some noticeable paint cracks. Bring on the french curve as this design utilizes some wonderful lines, has a retro throwback with the shark gills in the front quarter, and uses glorious chrome. (soon to go away!). That chrome leads the way with a V shaped front bumper and surrounding grille supports, all in nice condition. Stingray now one word is showing up in badging just above the gills. Chrome window surrounds and body colored side view mirrors are there too, along with a stainless-steel rocker covering emphasizes the exaggerated coke bottle design of the sensuously curved sides. To add even more bling to the lower body we note chrome side pipes. A T top, which has removable with fiberglass panels works flawlessly and shows no leaks and in back, a vertical rear glass has the long flying buttress B pillars that gently land on the rear deck which is adorned with the crossed flags gas filler cap is in the very center. The rear of the car leaves an impression also with the split chromed bumpers, round taillights and cut outs in the roll pan on each corner from when the exhaust was routed out the back. 15 inch deep dish trim ringed rally wheels wearing smooth chrome center caps are on all 4 corners and all are wrapped with raised white lettered Cooper Cobra rubber. Interior In wonderful contrast to the exterior Monaco Orange, we offer up a black and white vinyl covered sporty interior. This neat black first makes its appearance on the door panels. Cleanly molded and sculpted with white woven vinyl center panels for highlighting, the window cranks, lock turn knobs, door actuator, and armrest are housed here. Slipping into the high back thin design buckets we have smooth black vinyl bolsters and screen textured tuck and roll white vinyl inserts. These chairs show some wear in the inserts with degradation of the underlying foam. The center console moves towards the dash in molded black plastic to cover the hump. Also here is the shift lever, handbrake, temp wheels, and ashtray surrounded in back plastic with shiny surrounding trimmings. These panels show some dirt and wear. Moving up from the console we have the radio which is a factory AM/FM system. Also 5 gauges are lined up above in a panel that monitors everything but your blood pressure (as the brochure says!). A nice black rally steering wheel with a trio of satin chromed center spokes which come together in the center and mount up with the black center steering column. An angled dash houses dual deep inset round speedo and tach as well as eyeball air vents, and a few simple pulls. Padded black vinyl covers th
