Description for Chevrolet Corvette 1969


Very nice clean well taken care of driver not a trailer queen. Late build P21 on trim tag (nov 21st 1969) Is it the last L89 built? 427-435 tri carb aluminum heads,Side-mounted exhaust,White convertible top,Auxiliary hardtop (red), 4 speed m21 close ratio,F41 suspension,tilt added,front louver trim,am/fm,soft tinted glass (all original glass),positraction,power steering. Numbers match LP stamped on block 512 casting block (late 69). Its a California car very clean and dry. Suspension and frame are clean and solid no rust. Interior is all original looks very good yet. Paint looks great was touched up recently and shows very well yet. I do have rally wheels with trim rings with redline tires like new. I also have stock exhaust manifolds, stock side pipes,factory non tilt column,Car cover, and factory correct redline tires and rally wheels shown in pictures.
This 427/435 has very rare late L89 074 aluminum heads same heads as L88 and Zl1 open chamber.The 074 aluminum heads sport large 2.29/1.88-inch valves in large 118-cc D-shaped open chambers. These cylinder heads require the appropriate matching piston top to conform to the chamber shape. This car sounds like an L88! With L88 heads with the solid lifter cam 11 to 1 compression and 2.125 inch Dougs stainless side pipes. The folks at the local car show will love it!

Some will deny this because the 1968 and the majority of the 69 cars used the 842 heads but I have a few articles that a few of the late cars had the 074 heads.Those who doubt it dont have their facts straight or just dont know. I have talked to 1 other that has the late heads as well as mine. Please see pics it shows these heads are correct for Late 69.
The 68 early 69 L89 cars were not any faster then the L71 cast iron head cars so later on after the strike in 1969 since the production was 4 months behind. GM used the new 074 heads with bigger valves bigger ports in early November into December of 1969 model year. This is why you will never find a 842 head with a later casting date after November of 1969 because they stopped making them. The 842 heads were the same as the standard L71 cast iron heads small valves and smaller ports then the 074.
