Default 1971 ls5 454 4 speed corvette



Well in a weak moment I bought this car. My wife then asked me (WHERE IN THE HELL ARE YOU GOING TO PARK THE CAR WHEN YOUR OTHER CORVETTE IS PARKED OUTSIDE.) So I guess I should sell it . This is a survivor. It is a 454, 365 HP 4 speed car. It is numbers matching except for the belts and hoses, valve covers and Hurst shifter. It is a 49 state car (no smog). It has spent most of its life in California except it spent 2 years in Hawaii on a plantation and when the plantation sold, he shipped it back to California. It has power steering, air conditioning and power brakes. It also has the tray for the removable window. I got it with the stock trim rings and hub caps. Frame and bird cage are rust free. When I took the pictures, we went on a 30 minute ride and it drives excellent. No noises or problems at all. It just needs a good cleaning. The car is still located in South Lake Tahoe, Ca. It has a clear title. Price is $24000 OBO It has 62,150 original miles. Call Don at 775-857-8568

I took one, but it was in the shade and didn't turn out very good. The frame is in great shape.

Has the car ever been in any accidents? All original paint and body panels? Do all the gauges, lights, and fiber optics work?

Never been in a accident. All body body panels and paint are original. All gauges work but the tack and have new cable for it. Lights and optics work. Thanks Don

I added a photo of the tag you wanted I believe. The guy I bought it from was the third owner. The previous owner had it for 20+ years I believe. I have no written documentation. Thanks Don
