FOR SALE: 1970 Chevrolet Corvette $55,998 USD
Volo, IL

Engine: 454-390 H.P.


Interior Color:

Exterior Color:
Daytona Yellow

Very desirable numbers matching LS-5 454, 4-speed with 3.70 posi. If that\'s not exciting enough, it is also eye popping Daytona yellow. It has been frame off restored. I think it is exceptional throughout.
In the video I mistakenly said the previous owner had the car since 1988, he actually bought it in 2013. It was ground up restored when he bought it but he did spend $10,000 getting things very well sorted. It functions as good as it looks.

EXTERIOR: The body was completely stripped down and repainted in it\'s original Daytona yellow, code 984. We have pictures of the body stripped bare. Everything fits really well including the headlight and wiper doors. The paint is smooth and glossy. I inspected it and found only 2 minor flaws. Even the jambs are painted real nice including by the hinges. The front and rear bumpers were rechromed and fit nice. It still has the stone shields in the grill protecting the headlights. The front spoiler is not cracked. Door handles and antenna look original. The big blocks have the raised hood with chrome inserts. All coupes have removable T-tops and the rear window actually pops out. They can be stored behind the seats. It has the original 15x8 rally wheels with all new trim. The BFG tires were recently replaced.

INTERIOR: I\'m sitting in the car and I think it\'s in very nice shape. The dash pad is excellent, the whole center console is real nice, the heater controls were rebuilt. It has the correct reverse lockout shifter. The gauges were all restored, the clock was upgraded to quartz movement. The original radio is included (previous owner has it, remind us). Turn signal switch was replaced. The door panels look like new. It has genuine leather upholstery on the seats in excellent shape. I\'m looking all around and it is very nice- the plastic trim, kick panels, visors, mirror, carpet etc.

ENGINE COMPARTMENT: Desirable 512 block, high perf is cast right onto it. Vin number matching 454 LS-5 motor. 1970 is the most desirable because it was the highest horsepower hitting 390. Overall it is very clean, tidy and proper. Restored to factory condition- stock manifolds, valve covers, air cleaner and ignition shielding. The ignition was upgraded with Pertronix. The horns were replaced. Features include power steering and power brakes. The vacuum lines are run neatly. The clutch fan, shroud and expansion tank look proper. The heater core was replaced. It has a new reproduction Quadrant carb. The motor compartment is exceptionally clean, all the components and surfaces are very nice. There\'s an oil change sticker under the hood, it\'s only had about 9000 miles put on a car in the last 28 years.

UNDERSIDE: There are pictures of the body off the frame. The chassis was restored and detailed. The front end looks like it\'s been completely rebuilt-the bushings, balljoints, shocks, hardware, tie rods etc. The power steering control valve was replaced. Looking up at the motor, it is still very clean, new high torque starter. It has a correct Muncie 4-speed, rebuilt during restoration. The rear end is the original 3.70 posi. The rear suspension also looks like it was rebuilt- shocks, bushings, spring etc. There is a chambered dual exhaust system with correct square tips coming out through the valance. Fiberglass floors look to be in great shape. It has the spare tire carrier. It has disc brakes at all 4 corners. Replaced during restoration, recently serviced.

This is one of those that got better the closer I looked at it. The car looks great, it functions great. The combination of features and colors make this a very desirable, exciting and collectable Corvette!
