Presented here is a 1970 Chevrolet Corvette coupe, showcasing a stunning Bronze Metallic exterior (Paint code: 993) paired with a saddle tan vinyl interior. This Corvette is an original Canadian car and was acquired by the seller from the original family owners. It is currently registered in the province of Alberta, holding an active and normal registration status. Notable restorations include a repaint in the original Bronze Metallic approximately 15 years ago, a reupholstered interior with new carpeting, and a freshly rebuilt 406 SBC V8 engine, which the seller mentions has approximately 2,000 kilometers on the rebuild. Additionally, the transmission has been rebuilt, and a new power steering assembly has been installed.

For US bidders, this Corvette is directly importable without modification as it is EPA & DOT exempt being greater than 25 years old. For more information on transport/import please visit our Transport/Import page here.


The car originally left the factory finished in Corvette Bronze (993) and boasts chrome-finished bumpers, rocker panels, and windshield surrounds. It features twin front grilles, side vents, removable roof panels, pop-up headlights, integrated fog lights, and dual polished exhaust outlets.

Detailed images of the paint and any imperfections can be found in the provided gallery. New weather stripping has been fitted for the roof and doors. Chrome-finished 15" Rally wheels adorned with Chevrolet hubcaps are wrapped in BFgoodrich Radial T/A tires.

The car comes equipped with power-assisted steering and four-wheel disc brakes. Recent maintenance efforts undertaken by the seller include replacing the brake rotors, wheel bearings, hard-brake cables, and rear shocks.


The interior is appointed with saddle vinyl (418) bucket seats, complemented by a color-coordinated dashboard, carpets, and door panels. Features include a tilting and telescoping steering column and an aftermarket JVC radio, while the original Delco AM/FM stereo is included with the sale.

The three-spoke steering wheel faces a 160-mph speedometer and a 7,000-rpm tachometer, while auxiliary gauges in the center stack display fuel level, water temperature, oil pressure, and amperage. The five-digit odometer indicates 61k-miles and is believed to be accurate.

The seller notes that the original tachometer is not functioning, but an aftermarket tachometer has been added. Additionally, the seller will include a tachometer conversion kit valued at $500 CAD to address the issue.


Originally equipped with a 350ci V8 engine paired with a four-speed manual transmission, this Corvette has undergone an engine swap. The original engine has been replaced with a 406 SBC V8 engine sourced from another period-correct Corvette. However, the original engine block is included in the sale. The 406 SBC engine has been recently rebuilt and reportedly has less than 2,000 kilometers of use. Upgrades to the engine include a new 750 Quick-Fuel carburetor with electric choke, an MSD distributor, and an aluminum intake. A new 2.5" full exhaust system has also been added.
