The VIN number 1974679S7284XX indicates this Corvette was built late in the 1969 production year, September 1969, assuring the owner that engineering modifications and changes made during the production year were included in this Corvette. The odometer reads 10,944 miles and the owner states this is the original mileage confirmed by documented original owner history. Original owner history is instrumental in determining the value of a Corvette. It has the original Can-Am White paint that is in “below average” condition. The chrome bumpers are in average street driven condition. The interior is Saddle vinyl and is in good condition as is the interior carpeting. The White Convertible Top is in good condition, also. This 1969 Corvette is powered by the original base 350-300 motor that is matched with the original 4-speed manual transmission. The mechanicals of this Corvette have been rebuilt, a necessary procedure since the Corvette was not driven for prolonged periods of time as substantiated by the low mileage. In its current condition, it can be an award winner in the Bloomington Gold Survivor classification, thus adding to the value of the Corvette. A number of desirable options are included in this 1969 Corvette, specifically, power steering, brakes, windows and air conditioning. Less than one-third of the 1969 model year Corvettes had the air conditioning option. This Vette also has the speed warning option, a very rare option with less than 10% of the buyers ordering it. The appraised value of this Corvette is $28,000. Of interest is the appreciation factor that indicates during the past year the average resale price of a 1969 Corvette increased by 8%. The popularity of this model will continue to reflect an appreciation factor of 10% per year. Submissions:
