Powered by a 454 cubic inch (7. 2-litre) 'big block' V8 early 1970s Corvettes maintained the big-is-best arms race that began in the early-1960s. Just a couple of years after this car was built emissions controls strangled even the largest engines, so in many ways this Corvette and its siblings represent the end of an era. Offered here is an unmistakably yellow example whose body and paintwork present well, as do the trim and wheels/ tyres. The brown interior is in good condition with some wear to the trim, centre console and the steering wheel, while the door cards and seat facings present well. Handbook and tools are included, along with t-top envelopes and armrest covers.

If there's no substitute for cubic inches this 454 Corvette T-Top is the answer. It comes with good history including bills for more than£16, 000 spent on restoration work. Also includes invoices and MoTs since 1975 confirming the original low mileage.

£26, 000 - 32, 000
