Default 70 Corvette LT-1

Now that the car is finished (sort of), I'd like to share with all of you my 70 LT-1 Corvette. I had been searching for a while and found this car 5 miles from my house. I have know this car for about 5-6 years. The prior owner (3rd owner) had performed a frame on restoration of the car while adding his own personal touches.

The car is a legit 72,000 miles documented unhit car finished in it's original Donneybrook Green. After purchasing the car in May of this year, I reinstalled the original shifter, emissions system, wheels, and ignition shielding. The car retains it's original drivetrain including the carb, alternator, distributor, and smog pump. This car was ordered as an M-20 wide ratio with a 3.70 limited slip differential. Additionally, the car has AM / FM, Tilt / Telescopic steering, burgler alarm, and black vinyl interior.

This car is was ordered on Febbruary 28th, 1970 from Yarnall-Todd Chevrolet in Wheeling IL by it's original owner Mr. Larry Domas. The car was built on May 19th, 1970 with Mr Domas taking delivery on May 28th, 1970. This car is documented with the original order form, original dealer invoice, pre-delivery inspection sheet, Illinois title registration form, window sticker, tank sheet, and Protect-O-Plate. Furthemore, the owner history is complete with no gaps. The one unfortunate fact of the car is the block received a light decking in 1997 during a rebuild. The broach marks are mostly gone although the stamps can be read.

According to correspondence between later owners and Mr. Domas, Mr. Domas had considered a 454 or even a ZR-1, but the wait to get he car was too long for his liking. Subsequent owners managed to maintain the car in its original form until 2005.

I hope you enjoy the car!

I do like it, no I love your LT1. Very, very nice and I remember that dealership from my youth. The block looks very good and the numbers are very readable. Great paperwork, too.

I'm starting to pass out................

I love your car! One of my absolute favorite colors and I've always been a big fan of LT-1's.......especially the high compression 1970 versions. Now is that one of the prettiest engines Chevrolet ever made or what?! The aluminum finned valve covers, factory aluminum intake and big ol' Holley, fat harmonic balancer, etc. I know I've said it before but I've always been fascinated by how the LT-1 engine option cost quite a bit more than the LS-5 454 option! They must've been proud of it. EASY 12-second potential with some super-tuning.
