AMT reintroduces the’70 Vette Coupe, one of the most recognizable designs in automotive history. The 1/25scale kit manufacturer modern-engineered tooling and features breathtaking authenticity and detail throughout.Very noteworthy is the all new Retro Deluxe packaging with all-new illustrations from GM design veteran,Steve Pasteiner. A fantastic first from AMT!
With over 90 parts this venerable reproduction of the 1970 Corvette is essential to any Vette collection. In the third year of the C3, fender flares were designed into the body contours to reduce wheel-thrown debris damage. New were egg-crate grills with matching front fender side vents and larger squared front directional lamps. The previously round dual exhaust outlets were made larger and rectangular in shape. Interiors were tweaked with redesigned seats and a new deluxe interior option combined wood-grain wood accents and higher-spec carpeting with leather seat surfaces. Positraction rear axle, tinted glass, and a wide-ratio 4-speed manual transmission were now standard. The 350 cu in (5.7 L) base engine (ZQ3) remained at 300 hp (224 kW) and the L46 was again offered as a 350 hp high performance upgrade. New was the LT-1, a 350 cu in (5.7 L) small-block V8 engine delivering a factory rated 370 hp. It was a solid lifter motor featuring a forged steel crankshaft, 4-bolt main block, 11:1 compression ratio, impact extruded pistons, high-lift camshaft, low-restriction exhaust, aluminum intake manifold, 4-barrel carburetor, and finned aluminum rocker covers. The new engine, making up less than 8% of production, could not be ordered with air conditioning but was fitted with a domed hood adorned with “LT-1” decals.
In 1970, a special ZR1 package added racing suspension, brakes, stabilizer bars, and other high performance components to LT-1 cars.With an extra cost of $965, who would even consider owning one? Only 25 of the 1970 ZR-1's were purchased, and mainly by racers. Since the car was basically introduced for racing, it couldn't be ordered with a radio, and the wheels came without center caps and trim rings. The '70-'72 ZR-1's were designed for the race track, but the owners who took care of them and still have them today can name their price.
