I am a little confused by your reference to serial numbers. I have
looked up what mine is and I can't see what it has to do with your
comment. The serial number is 04768. Where did you get 17316 even
if you meant it related to 69?
Your serial number places the build in late '69.
The number 17316 was the last serial number issued in '70.
In other words they built 17316 1970 Corvettes.
The engine number ends in CTO I think,
as this would tie up to Convertible with A/C which it did have before
I brought it to UK from the Middle East when I decided it was more
trouble than it was worth. There isn't a CTD in the list, as far as I
can see and it is easily mistaken. So I was probably mistook.
CTO only applies to a 350 HP 350 CID with A/C and
a manual transmission. You have never stated what
transmission it has and I replied before you said it had A/C.
It has never been restored and things have been fixed as they went
wrong. It has a hardtop and only 35500 miles on the clock. My insurer
has valued it at not less than 10,000 pounds but as it has a nice
registration number, which I would like to retain, I am thinking of
trying to sell it abroad, instead of here in the UK. The pound has
gone down against nearly every other currency, thanks to the antics of
Gordon Brown etc. Would there be a demand for this car in the US?
People are alway buying Corvettes and a buyer could be found.
Your shipping cost could kill the deal at todays prices.
I would be very happy to hear what you think. I can hardly get in
and out with the hood down, thanks to my arthritis.
Thanks a lot George.
I see that you had a flasher problem, did you get it resolved?
Sorry for the late reply but was out of the country on
