CONVERTIBLE CONVERSION, ONLY 19K MILES, ONE OF A KIND, 700R4 TRANS SWAP, COOL!
Corvette guys are going to be scratching their heads at the sight of this 1977 Corvette convertible, because, after all, the last factory C3 Corvette ragtop was built in 1975. Wearing a way-cool removable T-top conversion, this low-mileage white roadster delivers a lot of thrills for not a lot of cash.
That conversion is going to generate a lot of questions, but if you weren't already familiar with how it's done, you'll swear that it looks factory. The deck is smooth and shaped just like a factory convertible and there's even OEM-style hardware for latching everything in place. The surgery was expertly done and makes this a Corvette for all seasons without compromises. And aside from the innovative roof, this one also offers great fiberglass, a shiny Classic White paint job, and a look that everyone agrees is pure American performance. And before you start thinking this is some homemade special, just check out the crisp body lines, the great gaps, and the beautifully finished urethane bumpers, which never looked this good coming out of the showroom. You also get a trunk rack, which is great for storing the removable T-top panels, as well as a clean front end that hasn't been scuffed or abused by parking curbs. No stripes, no oversized cowl induction hood, just a really clean C3 with a few trucks up its sleeve.
The bright red bucket seat interior should look familiar too, and that's a good thing. Correct leather seat covers look great and the high-back buckets are as comfortable as they look. And in your 1977 Corvette, you get a whole host of luxury features, including a tilt/telescope steering column, leather-wrapped steering wheel, cruise control, and an array of gauges that look great. A modern AM/FM/cassette stereo fits neatly in the original radio's slot and almost looks like it was born there and yes, this car has factory A/C, but it needs to be serviced (you won't miss it, not with that cool lift-off roof). Nice red carpets, matching door panels, and a beautifully finished cargo bay add to this 'Vette's appeal. The lift-off roof is a rather ingenious piece of engineering, as it latches down using the convertible top's hardware on both the deck and windshield header, and also includes removable T-top panels that can be stored in their own case. Cool, right?
With just 19,265 original miles, this Corvette moves like it's decades younger than it is. The 350 cubic inch V8 under the hood feels a lot stronger than stock, thanks to a performance intake manifold and a set of long-tube headers. A few chrome dress-up parts make the engine bay look flashy and the dual-snorkel air cleaner helps the 4-barrel carburetor breathe properly. A glance underneath reveals a 700R4 4-speed automatic overdrive transmission as well as a throaty Flowmaster dual exhaust system that sounds fantastic. The ride height is stock, so it handles well without a punishing ride, although the gorgeous C5 forged aluminum wheels are a great addition with their polished faces. Wearing 255/45/17 Goodyears all around, it has just the right look for an updated '70s cruiser.
Sure to generate a lot of questions everywhere it goes, this cool open 'Vette is even more fun to drive than it is to look at. Call today!
