1971 Corvette Big Block Coupe

1971 Corvette production numbers:
21,801 Total
14,680 Coupe
7,121 Convertible

Recently found in a climate controlled garage where it had been stored for over ten years, this 1971 Corvette was one of a small collection left to a widow. There was no documentation to be found but a thorough, expert inspection revealed no rust issues or evidence of collision damage repair.

The paint and interior appear to be original with normal wear for a low mileage survivor (showing just over 36K miles). The automatic transmission looks new and appears to have been replaced at some point. The engine stamping numbers are correct for the 454/365hp. This €˜71 has a rare combination of options.
