This is the nicest most original 1971 LS5 Corvette currently for sale. Most 1971 LS5's have been modified in some way or are missing many very expensive components. This is the last of the high horsepower Corvettes and this one has all the right documentation and matching numbers. You can't buy one and then restore it to this level for this price! LS5’s are getting harder to find that are not used and abused or modified. It takes a lot of money to put these cars back to day 1 condition.

There is a lien on the car so that would need to be paid off prior to release of title we can deal through your bank and they will handle all paperwork. I can also provide delivery up to 500 miles (USA) from (48383) White Lake Michigan in my custom-built aluminum trailer.

I will consider trades- (your car plus cash) for the following vehicles: Corvette C3-(73 to 78 -454 and L82 low miles untouched survivor cars), C4 ZR1 or C6 or C7 Z06 - high options-low miles)

Some recent examples of auction "SOLD" prices:

*A 1971 War Bonnet Yellow LS5 auto with many non factory parts -exhaust and wrong hood and other incorrect components and nowhere near the quality of this car sold at Barret Jackson Northeast 2018 for $50,000*

*A 1971 LS5 restored/correct car sold for $69,300 at the 2018 Mecum auction in Denver*
