In 1970, Corvette fans had no idea that the Bronze finish was only available that year for the C3 Corvettes. Later models tried to bring back the same color but they did not come close the highly desirable 1970 Bronze finish with is depth mixed really well with the curves of the 1970 Corvette.
This featured 1970 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray convertible comes in that desirable finish and is being offered by a dealer from Concord, North Carolina. The stock engine has also been replaced with a better, meaner big-block V8 engine and topped with a big-block hood just makes this Corvette more interesting.
The 1970 Stingrays are the only proud owner of the true Corvette Bronze. Later generations that had similar bronze finish always lacked something, the 1970 Corvette Bronze was just darker and had more depth. It just looks great on this classic Corvette.
Early C3 Corvette models such as this one were adorned with brightwork including the grille, bumpers, and rocker panels that add to the flashy bronze looks of this Corvette. And a classic Corvette Stingray won’t be complete without the signature Rally wheels. The original 350 ci V8 engine of this Corvette has been replaced by a bigger 400 ci V8 engine that is connected to an automatic transmission and breathes through a Flowmaster exhaust.
It does not only have a bigger V8 engine, but it has also been fitted with other performance goodies and tuned up to maximize the performance of this Corvette.

This Corvette has less than 68,000 original miles and has a price tag of $31,995. The price is reasonable due to its highly desirable and rare Corvette Bronze finish that looks flawless.
