1969 CHEVY L36 427 BIG BLOCK CORVETTE
Available from 8am Saturday the 1st of May
This was one of the most bad ass Corvette’s you could have ordered new in 1969. Finished in its original colour of Daytona Yellow, this is a genuine matching numbers 427 big block, 4 speed manual car with factory side pipes and a Posi track rear end! The original owner didn’t mess around, he skipped out on creature comforts on the order sheet, there was no need for those complications and extra weight that was only going to slow it down. Sounds like our kinda guy!
The car went through a light restoration in approximately 2013 where the original engine matching numbers L36 427 big block was pulled out of the car and fully rebuilt. The big block is paired to an original 4 speed manual Muncie close ratio transmission because every real drivers car should have three pedals. The power is fed to the rear wheels via a Posi track differential because no one ever looked cool doing a single pegger. The factory side pipes sound incredible! The rumble of the big block is something that really needs to be experienced! Four wheel power disk brakes help to pull everything up in a hurry.
The Daytona yellow paintwork was also given a freshen up at the time and still presents well today. The factory targa tops on these coupes provide a great compromise between the security of a hard top and the wind in your hair feeling of a convertible. The bonnet is an aftermarket item but tastefully done and is functional in providing cool air to feed the beast under the hood. The chrome bumpers is one of the coolest features of these early C3 Vette’s and the chrome on this one is in good condition and shines brightly. The car sits over a set of correct style chrome ralley wheels with white lettered tyres.
The interior is all the original style Black leather and in good condition. There hasn’t been anything silly added into it, even the factory radio remains in place. There is a plaque that sits under the gear shifter that reminds you you’re in a big block car.
We love that this car is just all business. Stingray’s are such wild looking cars but often the driving experience can fall short of the mark. That certainly isn’t the case in this Vette. It’s a super fun driver and would be perfect to take the T-tops off and enjoy a blast down a mountain road, side pipes screaming, banging through gears. This car ticks a lot of boxes that collectors are chasing and is certainly a rare and high end chrome bumper C3.
