The last owner owned this corvette for a long time and had high hopes of completing the restoration. It was stored in his garage when we picked it up. It is a lot of fun to drive and is a great conversation piece with the faded out old lacquer paint at car shows.
We changed the oil and filter, transmission grease, rear end grease and additive, and checked and lubed the chassis. We also replaced the 4 brake calipers, 4 brake hoses, 4 sets of brake pads, spark plugs, spark plug wires, points and condenser, distributor cap and rotor, fuel pump, water pump, water pump hoses, full carpet set, rebuilt the carburetor, and much more.
1971 was the second year for the LT-1 engine option. GM only built 1,949 LT-1’s and only 2,180 Mille Miglia Red corvettes out of 27,004 total production that year.
