Benmarks Motors is presenting to the market this stunning, well documented and fully restored to exacting factory specification 1971 Chevrolet Corvette LT1.This Matching Numbers example is one of the most desirable Stingrays ever produced and it is 1 of 1,949 LT1 cars sold this year.This best sports car of its era has been treated to full nut and bolt restoration finished in 2015 with literally everything new. The massive job card consumed a few years of hard work and love as well as over £40,000 in parts and labour. This is a jaw-dropping coupe that loves to show off its timeless body style. But the part youll be showing off the most is the highly correct presentation of the almighty numbers-matching LT1 V8.The LT1 was one of the hottest small blocks ever to hit the streets, and we love it in the factory-correct Ontario Orange. It looks absolutely vibrant out on any sunny Sunday drive. The lines on this Stingray are crisp, and so you really get to see the sharply-pointed front end, flared fenders, and flying buttress rear pillars. And of course, the LT1 has a special hood with a stripe package that helps outline the power dome. This one really takes the time to be an accurate-looking classic, right down to the true factory radio delete car. And the reason to make sure this looks so correct is that you have a true rarity.The lighter exterior with darker interior gives this the kind of sophisticated look youd expect on a European sports car, and this all-American was born this way! The bucket seats, door panels, carpeting, and centre console all look energetic and have been treated with great respect. It has a correct look on everything from the vent knobs to the three-spoke sports steering wheel on the tilt column. And because this is a drivers machine, youll love how the large speedo and tach dance in front of you, while the full auxiliary readout package prominently to the side at eye-level. Plus, dont forget about removable T-tops for a convertible-like experience.Under the hood is what makes this car extra-special. This is the numbers-matching LT1 350 cubic-inch V8. Its the ultimate small block built with forged internals and solid lifters direct from Chevy. And as you look over the whole engine bay, youll spot the right pieces, like the finned aluminium valve covers, Winters aluminium intake, and the correct big Holley four-barrel carburetor. This special V8 fires up with gusto, and you can just tell its ready to hit the road. And youre in full control thanks to the numbers-matching Muncie M21 four-speed close ratio manual transmission. In fact, speaking of control, this Stingray is a terrific sports car with a fully independent sports suspension, four-wheel power disc brakes, and a Positraction rear end and 3.08 diff.The sale comes complete with all the paperwork to prove this is a very unique and restored machine. It also includes the factory Wide Oval tyre and rim package complete with P02 wheel covers and maintenance records. Rarity, power, and beauty all come together on this LT1 Stingray. So if youre a collector, you know this needs a prime space in your garage. - Year: 1971- Make: Chevrolet Corvette LT1- Body Style: Coupe- Mileage: 2000- Transmission: 4 Speed Manual- Engine : 350 V8 (330 hp)- Exterior Colour: Ontario Orange- Interior Colour: Black- Drive Side: LHD- UK Registration Number: XFW 76J- Price: £49,995, We are a caring Family Company who specialise in hand picking low mileage cars with great service history & low ownership.We strive to offer the best prices & service.
