As far as practical classics go, few cars beat the third generation Chevrolet Corvette. Combining comfort, power, reliability and strikingly good looks, the Corvette C3 was produced over one and a half decades, spanning multiple stylistic changes and engine choices in what would become the brand’s longest-running sports car model. From the early “chrome bumper” cars to the late Pace Car and Collector Edition cars, the Corvette has become a cultural icon of the American mystique and love for the open road.
This early example, a rare 1970 model, is mechanically sorted and sports a rebuilt, overbored 454cu engine. Its superlative cosmetic restoration has made it into a multiple show winner that can be enjoyed reliably on a daily basis.
