Default 1970 Corvette Coupe 454 / 390hp 4 speed 89xx miles

Tracey and I purchased a car last week that we are excited about. Hopefully, the car will be delivered in the next week. The car came from a fellow whom we have bought a car from a couple of years ago, and have since become friends.

This a dead original, 4 prior owner car with 89xx documented miles. A low option car, as it only has.........
-LS5 454 (390hp)
-M21 4 speed
-G81 Positraction 3.08 "economy" axle
-PU9 White Letter Tires
-U69 AM/FM Radio
Documented with it's tank sticker and shippers copy (both NCRS validated by our own Tim Gilmore) and it's original POP. Futher documentation consists of title copies, temporary registration slips, mileage statement, and period photos circa 1978.

While the car is known whithin a circle of the Corvette hobby, the car has never been judged before. Once we have the car in our possession, there will be plenty more to share.

Already, the car is scheduled to be at the NCRS Regional in Rochester, MN, the NCRS National in French Lick, IN, Bloomington Gold in Bloomington, IL, and MCACN 2023.

Attached, are a few pics..........

What an amazing car, Tim. We’re going to have some great low mile Corvettes at the Nationals this year. I can’t wait to see the new 454.
