Gateway Classic Cars of Dallas is excited to show off this 1970 Chevrolet Corvette LT1! It was 1970; the year when monster big-blocks arrived from GM; so it took something very special to attract respect if you wanted the nimble prowess of a small block. Chevrolet did just that in RPO LT1 Corvettes like the one offered here. The LT1 was the latest iteration of the venerated small-block V-8 that had shown up in 1955; and this 350 CI powerplant would go down in history as one of the most desirable packages to own. In 1970 only; the engine received a factory rating of 370 HP and 380 lb-ft of torque; due in large part to 11:1 compression; a large 780-Cfm Holley carb; a solid-lifter cam outfit; and transistorized ignition. The internals was all heavy-duty; with a forged crank and 4-bolt mains. The company sold 1;287 LT1 Corvettes; a scarcity due in part to a short production season and the high $447.60 cost; more than $140 above the price of a new 454. Moreover; this version lasted just one year; with detuning and lower compression being part of the 1971 follow-up. The car hire has been given a comprehensive refreshing to correct specifications. Purchased new at Surf Chevrolet in Point Pleasant; New Jersey; LT1 packages were too wild for a factory automatic that year. This coupe is painted in rich Donnybrooke Green with a corresponding green interior and tinted T-tops. It has both power windows and the AM radio; as well as the 160 MPH speedometer and a special 6;500 RPM redline tachometer. The finishing touch is 15-inch Rally wheels fitted with redline tires. Provenance accompanying the sale of this car will include the factory Protect-O-Plate; the framed partial tank sticker; and the original owner’s manual. The LT1 has been noted on occasion to have been the best small-block Chevrolet introduced during the 20th century; and this car offers terrific possibilities to its next owner. All original glass. Power windows. All gauges work. Car is missing A.I.R. System. The only modification from the original is added power steering. Reproduction red-line tires. 63;101 miles. Documented car; tank sticker and protecto-plate. Car shows very well. Starts right away with no smoke. Shifts smooth. Sold new at Surf Chevrolet in Pt. Pleasant; New Jersey. CTV Suffix 350/370 HP engine with 380 ft/lbs of torque; 4-speed transmission; Donnybrooke Green; Power windows; AM radio; T-Tops; Rally wheels; Redline tires; Protect-O-Plate; Framed partial tank sticker; Owners manual.

    Hello everybody! As a vehicle buyer, I was first attracted by the professionalism of this company, and after some administrative hassle (to put it mildly), I was incredibly impressed by their commitment and empathy to complete this purchase. They didn't hesitate to get involved with the American seller to help me, and I can never thank them enough for that!

    Hello, I can also add my experience with Skillter with no problem. I have just bought a G20 Chevrolet van, and received it a week ago. This is my contribution to the Skillter network. I want to share my first experience with the importation of a G20 Chevrolet van via Mr. Doumaiselle's Skillter network. I was very satisfied with all the services during the first contact on the Skillter site as well as with the direct contact with Chris Doumaiselle, his professionalism and the creation of trust concerning the purchase. He was quickly able to put me in contact with his collaborators both in the USA and Rouen. The financial transactions took place without a problem. The vehicle arrived after 2 1/2 months. I also thank Mafy’us in California and their Sosea partner, Elise Boussu, who did a remarkable job in guiding me throughout the administrative procedures up to the delivery of the vehicle, as well as Mr. Michaut from GT Vintage. Again, bravo to the entire Skillter team and their associates, who I sincerely recommend.

    Dear Chris, Where do I start? Two months ago we didn't know each other and today you have brought me in person the car I have been dreaming of for at least 40 years – a 1958 Corvette C1 that I only had a scale model of on a shelf in my living room. Incredible! How can I thank you for this double gift: the car of my dreams and you giving me the keys in person? You and your team have been remarkable throughout these two months to inform, explain and reassure me with almost daily follow-up. Everything that you explained, and clearly explained I might add, and promised was delivered on time. Hats off! And huge thanks to be shared with all your teams. Your friendliness, availability, reliability, and the trust you inspired in me, as well as the tears in your eyes when you handed over the keys have made this purchase process an exceptional moment for me, along with the encounter with a man of exceptional human and professional qualities, which is rare in our times. I hope that you make a lot of other people as happy as you have made me and I can only warmly recommend they contact you to fulfill their wildest dreams. I hope with all my heart that we will have the pleasure of meeting again soon and that you will honor me with a visit to my home for a meal during a future trip to the southwest of France. Once again, a huge thank you for everything. With best regards,

    I have just made a childhood dream come true with the help and professionalism of Mr. Doumaiselle and his team. I was easily able to purchase a 1988 Chevrolet pick-up and above all a V8 "made in the USA". From the first contact for an estimate to the delivery of my vehicle on 10/15/2019, they were there on the phone, even on Saturdays and with the difference in time zone, to advise me and reassure me on my choice. I don't regret it. Everything went as planned. After payment, you receive your bills on the same day and then the boss calls you to see if you're happy. The entire chain of Skillter partners were very good, including SOSEA (Élise for customs clearance) and even the driver who delivered the vehicle to my home. Thanks to everyone who helped to make my dream come true with total trust.

    Chevrolet El Camino

    I have just acquired a 1986 El Camino Conquista through the intermediary of Skillter and I would like to congratulate the professionalism of this company and their friendliness. They took care of everything. I received a complete photo dossier of the car as soon as they picked it up from the American seller. I was informed as soon as the ship left the harbor and the French freight forwarder contacted me directly to regularly inform me of the progress of the customs clearance procedure and to obtain collector car registration. Everything went perfectly. I ordered this car in mid-April and I received it at the beginning of July, even more beautiful than in the photos. In all, it took 10 weeks, as was announced at the outset. It is a very reliable company that you can trust and use to purchase your American vehicles with total confidence. Thanks again for all their professionalism and know-how, they have earned their reputation.
