This is 1 of 1,949 LT-1 equipped Corvettes produced in 1971.

A two-owner car, this example was purchased new from Winchester Chevrolet in Winchester, Virginia. It was Bridgehampton Blue with blue interior. During the first owner's tenure, the car was repainted white. The 2nd owner acquired the car in 1990 with 69,000 miles on the odometer.

Today, this classic Corvette LT-1 is proudly on display in Texas Classic Cars of Dallas' showroom.

Under the hood is the classic high performance LT-1 smallblock V8. Introduced in 1970, the LT-1 gained fast notoriety with its 370 horsepower solid lifter, performance cam equipped V8. 1971 brought low lead fuel and lower compressions. With 9.0:1 compression, this engine is factory rated at 330 horsepower. This example's original engine has been fitted with an Edelbrock carburetor atop the factory aluminum intake. The cam has been replaced with a newer LT-1 cam, replaced solid lifters, bearings, oil pan, and general tune-up items. This powerplant is backed by the Muncie M-21 4-speed manual transmission. The original breather has also been replaced.
