May 27th 1970 is the birthday of this very rare, heart pounding, numbers matching, well optioned 454 Big Block Stingray. Only 4,473 produced with a 454 CID big block V8 LS5 and Turbo 400 automatic transmission. Original air conditioning, tilt steering wheel, power brakes, power steering makes driving this beauty very comfortable. T-tops and removable rear window add the way cool factor and a great ventilation system for those cool summer nights. The next step up as Chevrolet called it, the 454 Turbo Jet uses cast aluminum intake manifold, chrome air cleaner and rocker covers and extra large oil pan. The high domed hood is the only location on the exterior where it wears its displacement proudly. Heavier duty variable-rate front springs, larger diameter front stabilizer bar, heavier duty rear spindle support arms, a rear suspension stabilizer bar, larger capacity radiator, duel pulleys for fan and water pump and high-performance starter motor. The real handling secret is the independent rear suspension and Positraction rear axle. The low center of gravity with frame rails running outside the seating compartment and great weight distribution equal exceptional handling with comfortable driving. But all of that isn’t really why you want this ‘Vette. It’s because this 1970 Corvette Stingray is calling you!
This car was originally mossport green but was repainted not too long ago in factory corvette color mulsanne blue that hugs every curve like the sky accepts the clouds. The paint finish is very well done and shows very well. Chrome nose placement looks more like a spear to pierce the air rather than a bumper. Egg crate grill venting below the bumper line and again flanking the sides. “Stingray” placed in script along both sides with the Corvette Flags gracing just the right places. Just sitting in place, you can imagine the 500lbs of torque lighting up those wide rear tires. The 400 Turbo Jet shifts the way it should and handles the 390 horsepower properly with confidence and ease.
The current owner has completed many recent service items for the car including; new brakes, new carburetor (owner has original), new radiator with all new hoses & water pump, a recent 4-wheel alignment, new body to frame bushings, new suspension bushings, electronic ignition, & all done within the last 6 months.
***The owner also had documents & records from the previous owners as well from when the car was purchased new in 1970***
Though it started life mossport green the black leather look vinyl is correct to the car. Recent upgrades and maintenance include brakes, electronic ignition, rear bushings, new radiator, new hoses, water pump and alignment. With only 69,000 original smiles and numbers matching this blast of a Corvette is not only a great investment but an investment you can enjoy! Where are you going to go first?
