Vehicle Story

This 1971 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray sports coupe is offered with 100% of sale proceeds (excluding the buyers premium) going to benefit a nonprofit organization serving children in foster care, Fostering Community. It is powered by a 350ci V8 with a performance camshaft and Edelbrock air cleaner, and motivation is sent to the rear wheels via a 3-speed automatic transmission. Additional equipment includes air conditioning, a dual exhaust system, and a luggage rack. Finished in Steel Grey over a black vinyl interior, this C3 Corvette is accompanied by an extra set of original equipment replica wheels and a clear Louisiana title in the seller’s name.

This Corvette was professionally repainted in Steel Grey metallic with color-matched removable T-tops. It has C3 pop-up headlamps, chrome bumpers, and vented front fenders which bear Stingray emblems. Fiberglass bodywork presents well throughout. A trunk-mounted luggage rack is fitted, along with quad round tail lamps and a dual exhaust system.

Aftermarket 5-spoke polished aluminum wheels are wrapped in BF Goodrich Radial T/A tires with raised white lettering. Handling is aided by a power steering system, while the brakes are also power assisted and feature discs all around. A set of original equipment replica wheels is included with the sale.

The interior is fitted with black vinyl bucket seats and matching door panels, dash, and carpeting, along with a center console which splits the cabin. Custom Corvette embroidered floor mats are installed in the footwells. Amenities include factory air conditioning and a Pioneer AM/FM/cassette deck.

Instrumentation is framed by a 3-spoke steering wheel and includes a 160-mph speedometer and a 7k-rpm tachometer, along with console-mounted gauges for fuel pressure, coolant temperature, oil pressure, and voltage, in addition to an analog clock. The 5-digit mechanical odometer reads 1k miles, which are believed to be 101k. True mileage of the chassis is unknown.

The rebuilt 350ci V8 features a chrome-finished Edelbrock air cleaner and a high-performance camshaft, and resides in a matte black painted engine bay. The ZQ3 variant of the Chevrolet 350 small block was rated at 270 horsepower with 300 lb-ft of torque for the 1971 model year. Power is transferred to the rear wheels via a TH400 3-speed automatic transmission and a console-mounted shift lever.

Additional undercarriage photos can be found in the gallery. 

The sale includes a set of factory OE replica wheels. The foster organization that will be the beneficiary of the sale proceeds, excluding buyers premium, has a webpage at https://www.fosteringcommunity.org/

@Gator – I have a few questions. Do fiber optics work? All gauges work? Headlight doors and wiper doors work? Any leaks in t-tops? Is a numbers matching car? Is there any way I can view the car prior in person? ...

I'd be glad to meet you there tomorrow before the auction ends. My cell is 318-446-0403. It's located in downtown pineville. As far as I know, everything is in great working condition. The owner of this car has taken extremely great care of it.

https://youtu.be/5Tu6B27N18s I videoed the car inside the closed garage so I’m not sure the acoustics are the best, but she sounds great! Let me know if you have any questions

Hi, I'm Andria Fontenot, I'm the co-founder and Executive Director of Fostering Community. The car is owned by my friend Tammie Thames. She purchased the corvette for her 50th birthday and for her 60th birthday she is donating it to us! The auction ends on her birthday, May 19th. She wanted 100% of the proceeds of the car to go to our nonprofit, which serves children in foster care across the state of Louisiana. The purchase of the car will actually be a donation to Fostering Community, so it will be a tax write off since we are a 501c3 nonprofit. Fostering Community's mission is to improve the lives of children impacted by foster care through advocacy, resources, and support. You can learn more about our organization at www.fosteringcommunity.org. If you have any questions about the car, please let me know.
