Mary Ann: 1969 Corvette C3 Convertible 350 / Auto – SOLD!
June 17th Update: the seller of this C3 Corvette Convertible we first featured in mid-March just lowered his asking price from $22,500 to $19,900 in a fresh listing posted on Craigslist earlier this week. If you’re looking for a driver-quality C3 convertible to enjoy driving, this may be a great option.
If you have your heart set on a C3 Corvette that looks great but isn’t too flashy that you can enjoy every day all day, then this 63K original mile, 1969 LeMans Blue over Black vinyl Convertible currently listed on Craigslist in East Brunswick, New Jersey may be just the one for you. The current caretaker has his convertible currently listed for $22,500 and a quick check of the Hagerty Insurance Online Valuation Tool confirms this private seller has his C3 priced somewhere between the #3 “Good” appraisal of #33,30o and the #4 “Fair” (Daily Driver) estimate of $16,700.
Continuing the Gilligan’s Island theme started by the “Ginger” Corvette featured elsewhere this Sports Car Saturday, this LeMans Blue convertible is the good looking and fun C3 you can do anything without worrying about high maintenance. We would leave the later-model fiberglass mono-leaf rear spring and aluminum wheels in place for better ride quality and lower unsprung weight. As long as you replace the aftermarket side pipes with under-car exhaust the car had up until recently, you may not get many second looks even at local car shows. Overall this appears to be a fun, driver-quality C3 you can drive at a moment’s notice. As long as your idea of “showing” this C3 is at best either your local Cars & Coffee, you’ll both be happy as this Corvette is not about showing off but rather just about having fun. Good luck with the purchase!
