132159 / 1971 Corvette

From the "buy the car, get the restoration for free" files comes this very
nice 1971 Corvette coupe. With an L48 350 cubic inch small block and an
automatic, it isn't going to compete with the 427/435s on the showroom
floor, but someone still spent more than the car is worth restoring it to
its current condition. It's a great driver that will fit right in at the
Corvette National Homecoming each year at the National Corvette Museum, and
will get you there reliably, comfortably, and surprisingly economically. If
you're a Corvette fan who's been looking for a reasonably priced, fun
'Vette like, say, a garden-variety C5, take another look at this '71-it's a
much more interesting car for the money.
The color looks an awful lot like Mulsanne Blue, one of the factory colors
in 1971. The repaint is a good quality job applied to straight, undamaged
fiberglass. Obviously a well-maintained car, there was just no need to
completely disassemble the car to correct everything at the molecular
level. But to my eye, the prep was excellent, the gaps are good, and the
2-stage paint is deep and glossy. Not too dark and not too light, it's an
understated color that makes you think that the Corvette has grown up and
matured a bit. Less a boy racer than a gentleman's sports car, this is a C3
that you can look dignified in while driving just try that with an orange
one. In fact, I'd call it exactly the kind of car you'll enjoy waxing on
Saturday afternoon before hitting the local cruise with the T-tops off, and
it'll get a lot of appreciative glances along the way.
Chrome and stainless is good, and the emblems must be reproduction items
because they look so good. The '71s are popular today because they still
carried chrome bumpers and a real grille in the nose, a look that still
looks good today, 40 years later. Out back, the traditional Corvette round
taillights are excellent. This one carries solid T-tops, which I personally
prefer, but there are dozens of aftermarket suppliers who can hook you up
with glass ones if that's what you like. The rest of the glass is very good
with no major nicks or scratches.
Still making impressive horsepower-270, despite
reduced compression ratios the L48 350 cubic inch V8 in this Corvette runs
beautifully. It fires up quickly, idles well, and runs like its older
brothers from the '60s. There's a throaty sound from the Exhaust and respectable thrust when you bury
your foot. The engine compartment has been cleaned up and presents well
with a few dress-up pieces. The engine block itself has been bathed in a
fresh coat of Chevy Orange paint, and bright pieces like the air cleaner
and cast aluminum valve covers add some flash to what was originally a
fairly plain engine bay. A set of headers add a little more oomph to the
engine and give it a deep voice that will definitely intimidate the kids in
their hopped-up Hondas. There are quite a few new parts under there,
suggesting that the restorer's goal was a reliable 'Vette that could hit
the road at a moment's notice, and look good doing it.
Backing up the engine is a rugged GM TH400 3-speed automatic, which, to be
honest, is a great partner for this easy-cruising Corvette. Still capable
of doing some serious cornering and making good horsepower, I wouldn't
regard it as a handicap. In fact, more than half the Corvettes built in
1971 carried this transmission, suggesting that Corvette owners appreciate
the luxury side of the car as much as the performance. Additional features
under the car include a new Exhaust
system, rebuilt brakes and new shocks all around, as well as a solid
chassis with no signs of damage or rot. It rides on a set of perennially
gorgeous Rally wheels with recent 225/70/15 radial tires.
Having fun with your car is what this hobby is all about, and this Corvette
represents a lot of bang for the buck. Where else can you spend less than
$20 grand and get automatic admission to some of the biggest and best
events around? Driving is what Corvette enthusiasts love to do, and this
one would make a fantastic long-distance cruiser. Take it to the Black
Hills Corvette Classic and convoy with hundreds of other 'Vettes, or hit
Bloomington Gold and see the best of the best. This is a car you'll be
happy to show, but even happier to drive. And like I said in the beginning,
someone who probably knew he wouldn't get his investment back did all the
restoration work. Smart buyers always know those are the cars to buy. A lot
of fun for not a lot of scratch. Call now!

1985 C4 Corvette-Kart vs. 2014 Lingenfelter C7! - Roadkill Ep. 35
On this episode of Roadkill, we hack the entire body off a C4 Corvette,
cage it, and call it a race car! Freiburger and Finnegan fulfill a dream
that began four-plus years ago when they first wrote the "Vette Hack"
article for HOT ROD magazine, slicing 900 pounds of ugly fiberglass off of
a 1985 Corvette to prove that it would handle better in the autocross. Less
weight means more acceleration, better cornering, and better stopping. The
idea is proven once again here as the guys add a 350-horsepower rat-rod engine,
rebuild the trans, remove more weight, and make it rigid, safe, and stylish
with a full rollcage. Next, they head into a shootout with a 2014 Corvette
upgraded by Lingenfelter Performance Engineering with an Edelbrock blower,
Kooks headers, and Corsa Exhaust for a
wicked-sounding 640 horsepower. And then, of
course, there's the off-road mayhem. The Vette Kart rocks!
Roadkill appears every fourth Friday on the Motor Trend channel.
