This 1970 Corvette coupe was delivered new to Bresee Chevrolet of Syracuse, New York, and was refurbished under prior ownership before being acquired by the seller in January 2017. The car is finished in Mulsanne Blue over black vinyl upholstery and is powered by a numbers-matching L46 350ci V8 paired with a close-ratio four-speed manual transmission. Factory equipment includes 15″ Rally-style wheels, disc brakes, a 3.70:1 rear end, a heater, and removable roof panels. Service since 2017 is said to have included removing and resealing the transmission along with the installation of a PerTronix electronic ignition system and an advance curve kit. This C3 Corvette is offered with removed factory parts, spare wheels and tires, an NCRS shipping data report, NCRS Top Flight awards, judging documents, a tank sticker, service receipts, refurbishment photos, manufacturer’s literature, and a clean Colorado title in the seller’s name.
The car was refinished in 2007 in the factory Mulsanne Blue (976) after being involved in a rear-end collision which resulted in the replacement of the taillight panel. Features include twin front grilles, side vents, removable roof panels, chrome bumpers, pop-up headlights, and dual polished exhaust outlets.
Reproduction 15″ Rally wheels are wrapped in 225/70 Firestone Firehawk Indy 500 tires, and stopping power is provided by unassisted four-wheel disc brakes. Work performed in 2016 included rebuilding the manual steering box as well as replacing the upper control arm bushings and hardware, installing riveted ball joints, and replacing the wheel bearings. The factory Rally wheels mounted with Goodyear and Firestone tires are included with the sale.
The cabin is equipped with bucket seats trimmed in black vinyl upholstery with a matching console, dash, and trim. Work performed in 2016 reportedly included replacing the seat foam, upholstery, and carpets in addition to installing heat and sound insulation. Manual crank windows are fitted along with a heater, a rear window defroster, and a polished shift knob. The radio and windshield wipers are not functional.
Factory instrumentation is framed by a three-spoke steering wheel and consists of a 160-mph speedometer, a tachometer, and a collection of supplementary gauges housed within the center stack. The five-digit odometer shows 85k miles, approximately 6k of which were added under current ownership.
The L46 350ci V8 was rebuilt by The Bowtie Shop of Stow, Massachusetts, in 2016, which included stripping and repainting the block, resurfacing the cylinder heads, and replacing the following components:
- Timing chain
- Oil pump & screen
- Camshaft & bearings
- Intake & exhaust valves, guides, seals, seats, and springs
- Piston rings
- Freeze plugs
- Accessory drive belt
Equipment installed in April 2017 included a PerTronix Ignitor III solid-state ignition system with a Flame-Thrower III ignition coil and a Moroso advance curve kit. An oil change was performed in 2021, and the removed factory ignition components are included in the sale.
The engine stamping above shows sequence number S416320, which matches the last six digits of the vehicle’s chassis number. The CTH suffix is consistent with a 350ci L46 V8 for use with a manual transmission in non-air-conditioned applications.
Power is delivered to the rear wheels through a Muncie M21 close-ratio four-speed manual transmission and a rear differential with a 3.70:1 ratio. The transmission was reportedly rebuilt in March 2017 by Jim Thurmon at The Garage of Englewood, Colorado. A replacement fuel tank is said to have been installed in 2007. Additional photos of the underbody are provided in the gallery.
The 2013 NCRS shipping data report, judging documents, Top Flight awards, and blue ribbons are presented in the gallery along with a factory order sheet, a tank sheet, refurbishment records and photos, and a reproduction window sticker.
