 1971 Corvette Stingray LS5 454ci 4 speed. Numbers matching block & transmission. This car has been in the family since 1983 and was in the middle of final restoration plans, when the primary owner passed away. The original 454ci 365hp engine is safely disassembled and has been in heated storage for nearly 20 years. We purchased a GM performance HO454 425hp crate engine to take its place. Along with the new engine, we put in a rust free west coast frame to replace the rusty original. The car has not seen the light of day since 1997 based on the last registration and 1998 inspection sticker. The black interior has a near perfect dashboard (original with no cracks) and both door panels are Eckler deluxe repro's. This car needs to be finished (some body work, painted and reassembled) by someone with the passion to own an original steel bumpers big block Stingray. Make no mistake, it needs work to be finished, it does run, but the brakes are bad, being that it's been sitting for nearly 20 years. I had it up and running 4-5 years ago and have a video of the HO454 purring like a kitten, even with 20 year old plugs and wires. It has an L88 hood with cold air internals so the HO454's aluminum dual plane intake would have clearance. We rebuilt the head light buckets with new pins and bushings, we also installed a new windshield frame from Arizona. So much has been done to this car, it's hard to remember everything. I have a three ring binder with all receipts and pictures for those who come and look at the car. You'll be amazed at all the work that went into this car. I just don't have the passion to finish this old beast, so it's time to pass it on to someone else after nearly 35 years of being in the family. 83,000 original miles

 I'd like to see $8,499 for this car that comes with two 454's and a lot of extra's, but I'm open to any reasonable offer. Thank you
