Default 1971 LS-5 Coupe Numbers Matching 4 Speed in OH

I recently restored a 1971 LS-5 coupe. It is a numbers matching 4 speed, AC car in Nevada silver with black interior. Motor has less than 300 miles since the rebuild. Car is located near Dayton, Ohio. I have 80% of a deteriorated tank sticker that is almost illegible. $40,000 OBO.I did the following to the car after I purchased it:
  • Removed the body and painted it the original Nevada silver in base coat / clear coat (I am a painter). The paint is awesome.
  • Sand blasted the frame and suspension, epoxy primer, and top coated with a black to match the factory sheen. All bushings and u-joints were in great shape, so they were not replaced.
  • When I purchased this vehicle the engine had been rebuilt. I spoke with the shop to confirm this to be fact and I possess this receipt.
  • I was told the transmission had been rebuilt. No documentation of this, but I did pull cover and it looked perfect. This was enough to satisfy me.
  • New exhaust manifolds were purchased with the proper date codes
  • Rebuilt GM water pump with the proper date code was installed
  • Under the cap electronic ignition replaced the points
  • New coil, cap, rotor, wires(no shielding
  • Had the original factory radiator re-cored
  • Resurfaced flywheel, new clutch and pressure plate
  • There was a rust hole the size of a dime at the top of the windshield frame. This was the worst of minimal rust this car had and it was properly addressed.
  • New fuel and brake lines
  • New fuel tank pick up and sending unit
  • All new vacuum relays and actuators and hoses
  • Bumpers were professionally re-chromed (better than reproductions).
  • All new wiring harnesses throughout the car, new fiber optics as well.
  • All new interior and exterior light bulbs
  • New seats, carpet, dash pad, new console
  • Restored the GM rally wheels
  • New BF Goodrich tires








Seats are brand new.

I have the sister car in my garage being restored right now. $40K seems like a really good deal if its what you say it is. Good luck!

I just mean I have the same 1971 Nevada Silver LS5 4 speed, PS,PB,AC, rear defrost. Mine is in the middle of a frame off. I guess I just thought incorrectly that a correctly restored LS5 would be worth closer to 50? oh well.

I guess its worth what someone is willing to pay? I really hope you get every penny you are asking because I know how much you likely spent to restore it. Good luck.

just your standard full side shots, front & back, interior and engine bay. Undercarriage photos are always nice to show condition but I realize not everyone has a lift available. This looks like a really nice restoration but its a little hard to tell since the photos seem close up and basic. maybe it could be pulled outside and show more of the overall vehicle.
