Super nice and original 1971 Stingray Convertible (Manual 4 speed) finished in very attractive Brands Hatch Green / black interior and a white soft top. This is an original car with a genuine low mileage of just 44k and previously from single family ownership in the US. The car is in beautiful condition. It is not a fully restored car but has had maintenance work done and been cherished and looked after all of it life. It has been re-spayed some years ago in the original colour but it still maintains a classic period look and the interior and roof are both original to the car. There is some minor paint blisters on the bonnet but nothing that takes away from the overall looks, note also an age related split in the rear window of the soft top where the window has become brittle over time. Replacements are available quite reasonably if desired but my view is that it is that it is better to keep all original as it has a nice period look to it..The interior is immaculate and shows very little wear and all instruments work correctly baring the clock. The car sits on the original 15 inch rally wheels with chrome trim together with rare Goodyear Eagle GT2 tires of the correct 225/70 size all in great condition and showing minimal wear. The engine runs very smooth and is super clean. This is the 270hp engine but is pushing out slightly more power than standard owing to the "headers" that has been fitted to give a more free revving engine and exhaust flow This is the only change from standard on this car. New clutch, serviced and ready for the new owner to enjoy. 1971 is one of the last years of the desirable full chrome bumper cars and this is a particularly nice example. These are in my view one of the best classics around right now, the show stopping looks are right up there with the finest Italian exotica of the same era. This being the full convertible over the t-top gives the car and even lower and more aggressive profile, hood up or down the lines are just beautiful from every angle.
