LMC is very proud to offer for sale this 1971 Chevrolet Corvette LS6.
The 1971 Chevrolet Corvette Coupe had very little changes from the previous year’s beforehand. The reason for this, is that the UAW labor dispute of 1969 shortened production of the 1970 model, so GM decided to make the 1971 model essentially an extension of the 70. A positive fact that came from the dispute however, is that it allowed Chevrolet to produce a more trouble free and better machine for 1971. With a base price of $5,496, Chevrolet offered the choice of 3 different engines from a 350/330hp to a 454/425hp, 3 different transmissions, and many other factory options. In all, there were 21,801 Corvettes produced for the 1971 year. There are few cars in the collector car world that command the kind of respect and admiration as the LS6 Corvette.
This ’71 Corvette LS6 was built on March, 22, 1971 and was delivered to Botnick Motor in Binghamton, New York. This is one of only 188 made in 1971 with the LS6 454 engine, rated at 425 HP and with Muncie 4 speed transmission. This was a wonderful original car that still wore its original paint and had never been restored until being treated to an exacting nut and bolt frame off restoration that resulted in an NCRS Top Flight award. It is finished in the factory correct #983 Brands Hatch Green with complimentary Saddle leather interior. It also has tilt steering wheel, power windows, power steering and brakes to complete the package. This numbers matching car also has the T roof for open air driving on those nice days. Its striking appearance is complimented by the traditional Rally wheels with trim rings and Firestone Wide Oval tires. If you’re looking for a very scarce example of the legendary Corvette, this car has both the pedigree and the looks of a truly land mark car. This Corvette is fully documented with items including; original owner’s manual, original protection plate, original EPA sticker, DOT sticker, gas tank sticker, NCRS Shipping Data Report, NCRS Judging Sheets, the NCRS Top Flight Award Certificate. Also included are 1971 Corvette brochures, the wheel trim ring instruction sheet, and the AM/FM radio manual.
This is a very rare and unique opportunity to purchase a numbers matching, fully documented, award winning, high horsepower aluminum head Corvette. These are very special factory built cars and most certainly are well undervalued compared to the higher production number L88.
