** JUST IN: MORE PHOTOS AND INFO TO COME ** When it debuted for 1970, the Corvette’s new “LT-1” engine option (a high-output 350) drew rave reviews from the car magazines of the day for its powerful, free-revving nature and great soundtrack. Fortified with a solid-lifter, aggressive spec camshaft, this engine really came alive at higher rpm, and with a 6,500 rpm redline, it was a thriller. This entertaining option was offered through 1972. As the LT-1 option cost was nearly $500, it was considerably more expensive than even the LS5 454 option (around $300). As such, these are relatively rare cars. Here we have a gorgeous example of a 1971 Corvette LT-1. Finished in its factory correct Brands Hatch Green, this numbers-matching T-top coupe was just beautifully restored. Judging by the quality of the paint, body panel fitment, engine compartment, interior and underside, it appears to have been a labor of love. In addition to the high quality paint and gleaming original chrome bumpers and trim, this LT-1 boasts a spotless underside that earns it our “lasagna car” designation, meaning it’s so clean underneath that we’d gladly eat pasta off of it. As stated earlier, these are somewhat rare cars. With just 1949 LT-1s produced for 1971, they only made up about nine percent of that year’s Corvette production. In addition to the LT-1 V8, other options on this Corvette include the "custom" interior trim (features leather seating and woodtone accents on the door panels), power windows and an AM/FM stereo. Power steering and power four-wheel disc brakes are fitted as well. From the supple leather seats to the crack-free door panels, it’s all in impressive condition. With its chrome air cleaner and finned aluminum valve covers, the LT-1 has the eye candy to go along with its strong performance. The powertrain is numbers-matching, including the 4-speed gearbox. Out on the open road, this Corvette LT-1 runs and drives great. It doesn’t get much better than cruising on a winding country road with the T tops off on a sunny day.
