VERY CLEAN C3 WITH GREAT PAINT AND WARMED OVER ORIGINAL 350 V8, CLEAN INTERIOR!
Two seats, a rumbling V8, fully independent suspension with 4-wheel discs, and a swoopy body that still makes kids stop in their tracks when you drive by, all for the price of a used Honda. This 1974 Corvette gets everything right, from the fresh paint to the long list of options to a ton of recent work.
Bright red always looks good, but on a C3 Corvette, it has, well, a classic look stretching all the way back to the earliest days of Corvette performance. The '70s were a wild, funky time and our taste in fashion was represented best on the street by the Corvette. Always an A-lister, this particular car shows us why they remain popular today, and while it was originally code 14L Silver Mist, nobody's going to argue about the color change after they get a look at this car. The 'glass is in great shape with no stress cracks in any of the usual locations, and with good shut lines, crisp details, and better-than-new finish work, this coupe makes for an excellent initial entry into the Corvette hobby or the finishing piece of a collection. Note how well the nose and end caps fit, the total absence of scuffs or damage on the chin and rockers, and the blacked-out rocker trim makes it look lean. A matching black stinger down the center of the hood looks better here than on many other cars and the overall look is extremely impressive.
A code 404 black leather interior is how this one was delivered, so that's what's in it today, and it nails the swinging '70s perfectly yet looks great today. The seats remain in excellent condition, having been re-upholstered recently, along with new door panels, carpets, and weather seals. Wood appliques warm up the monochromatic interior, and you'll be pleased to find options like A/C (not functional but all the parts are included), power steering and brakes, an automatic transmission, and an AM/FM/cassette stereo. The gauges show bright, clear markings, and there's an auxiliary oil pressure gauge tucked under the dash over on the passenger's side to monitor the vitals a little more closely. Don't worry about pedigrees, just pull the color-matched red T-tops and hit the road in style.
Performance is decent considering the original, numbers-matching L48 lives under the hood. Nicely detailed, including a new air cleaner and finned valve covers, plus bright yellow plug wires and a custom radiator shroud, it looks well-maintained and clean. The original Quadra-Jet carb is gone, replaced by a 600 CFM Edelbrock 4-barrel on a matching intake manifold, long-tube headers build torque, and the ignition system has been upgraded to HEI. It's not detailed for show underneath, but if you want a Corvette you can get in and drive any time without worries, one that won't have you fretting over a little rain, well, this is just the ticket. There's a new exhaust system that really sounds fantastic, new U-joints on the driveshaft and half-shafts, as well as new bushings that make it feel like a newer car. Correct Corvette Rally wheels are still in place and now wear 235/60/15 front and 255/60/15 rear BFG radials.
Clean, no-stories Corvettes are getting harder to find, and this one's combination of a warmed-over 350 and a brilliant color combination might be just what you're looking for. Call today!
