This 1970 Chevrolet Corvette coupe is powered by a 454ci LS5 V8 paired with a four-speed M21 manual transmission linked to a Positraction rear end equipped with 3:70:1 gearing. Subsequent work performed includes refreshing the black interior, rebuilding the power train, overhauling the electrical system, updating the cooling system, and servicing the suspension. This C3 is offered with period books and manuals, removed factory parts, service records dating back to 2009, and a clean Michigan title.
