Wide-body? Check. Shooting brake? Check! Big-block? Well, duh—what box doesn’t this 1970 Corvette tick?
Hell, it also runs and drives! This 1970 Chevy Corvette doesn’t have a lot of documented history to it, but what we can tell is that it really never left the disco era. Allegedly the result of some autocrossin’, fiberglassin’ fiend, it houses a delightful 454 big-block and chunky four-speed Muncie underneath the resin-induced (fiberglass resin, of course) bodywork.
Summer may be winding down, but there’s still no reason to not have a T-top ‘Vette like this. It’s a period street machine thanks to the massive IMSA-inspired flares, delicious striping that manages to evoke everything from factory stripes to custom vans, and Bow Tie-shaped porthole windows—nevermind that one of them is backward. With the additional weight from the fiberglass artistry, there’s a good chance that this ‘Vette really does need all of the wide-track slot mags at all four corners, though maybe it’s time to replace the bias-ply Pro Trac 50s with a more suitable tire.
Inside, the red interior has survived fairly well, although it shows its age and is missing some trim. It also seems to have a drop bar from a roll bar hoop reaching down, further pointing at some kind of performance driving by the previous stewards.
Personally, I’d change nothing about this time capsule. It needs a loving resto, but without being a numbers-matching retirement plan for someone, it can still thrive and be enjoyed. Imagine showing up to tech with this thing at your next meet after a few chassis updates. Even if the competition isn’t staring at the back of your Trans-Am taillights, you know that you’ll at least have their eternal envy as this thing ricochets through an apex with Disco-hardened leisure.
