1026P..1970 Corvette Benchmark Convertible, 454-390 hp 4-speed numbers matching original engine, transmission, rear end, trim tag and VIN plate. Amazing time-capsule 3-owner car with 1,159 actual miles and possibly the lowest mile and most original steel bumper (1953-1972) Corvette in existence, and from the Ed Foss collection. Mulsanne Blue paint with Black leather interior and White soft top. Bloomington Gold Benchmark, Survivor and Gold certified and one of the highest scoring cars in Bloomington Gold history. Multiple NCRS Top Flight awards including regional scoring 99 points, National scoring 98.6 points, Chevy Vette Fest Triple Crown/Gold Spinner award and also in the 2006 Bloomington Gold Special Collection. Options included: power brakes, power windows, leather, AM/FM radio, tinted glass, HD posi rear, rally wheels and original F-70x15” white lettered tires. Documentation includes everything one would have received from the Chevrolet dealer and the factory but also includes the original title, salesman’s card and affidavit from the original owner. Also has a technical and historical photo reference/documentation book of at least 200 pages. Production date of July 27th, 1970 and delivered new by Ernie Grissom Chevrolet in Mt. Clemens, MI (dealer code 176 in zone 44) per the official NCRS/GM shipping data records (SDR). This car is one of the elite few recipients of America’s most prestigious Corvette awards, the happy result of a lifetime of diligent care and discerning use. Unrestored and original!! It was judged worthy of Bloomington Gold Certification, Survivor and Benchmark honors, the latter being the most important of all to the demanding collector. Benchmark Certification recognizes each recipient as not only unrestored—a quality recognized in Survivor judging—but also that it remains in showroom condition, exactly as it was upon delivery from the factory with the exception of aging. These qualities make it the perfect source of reference for a top-quality restoration of a like car, ergo the term “Benchmark.” Benchmark Certification is only awarded to cars that have achieved both Gold and Survivor on the same weekend, qualify in all four Survivor categories. Benchmark is, by definition, the most important distinction in the entire Corvette judging regime, one awarded to fewer than 228 Corvettes 1953 to 1972 and only 15 were 1970s as of this writing—including this jewel. Irreplaceable and unobtainable at any price. **Looking for crazy offer** SOLD
