NUMBERS MATCHING L48, 4 SPEED MANUAL, PS, PB, AC, T-TOPS, RUNS AND DRIVES GREAT
You've already looked at the price and understand that this 1975 Corvette is not a trailer queen show car. On the other hand, it's got all the right features, including a 4-speed gearbox and lots of upgrade factory options, making it a car that you can enjoy now and enhance over time to make it stand out.
C3 Corvettes have the look, and nobody who sees this car in your driveway will question how affordable it truly is. It's probably wearing factory paint, and like anything that's 40 years old, it's got a few blemishes and signs of age. On the other hand, the fiberglass is really straight, the body fits together quite well, and it has a decent shine. This is the best kind of car to own, too, because you won't worry about rain or bugs on the nose and you'll always be able to just jump in and go without worries, something that the owners of restored cars just can't do. The front and rear bumpers fit rather well and don't show the usual signs of cracking and deterioration, so this car has obviously led a good life, and upgrades like the luggage rack out back give it a sporting look with a dash of practicality. The car's definitely got the right look.
The black leather interior is a great choice with the Classic White bodywork, and it, too, is in good original condition. Personally, I don't think I'd change a thing inside because it has a very inviting lived-in look that can't be duplicated except by waiting another four decades. The seats are still comfortable and show just the right kind of comfort marks. Factory options include a tilt wheel, power windows, and air conditioning, and the gauges are remarkably well-preserved. Of course, this Corvette's biggest interior feature is the 4-speed manual transmission, a rather rare piece of equipment for the laid back mid-70s and key to a big increase in driving enjoyment. The factory AM/FM radio remains intact, but you'll probably want to yank it and get something more contemporary in there ASAP so you can hit the road. Overhead there are body-colored T-tops which seal up well and offer an open-air experience that nothing else quite delivers.
The engine is the original, numbers-matching L48 350 cubic inch V8. It still wears factory shielding around the distributor although we suspect the engine has at least been painted at some point simply because it looks so good. The cowl-induction air cleaner is a neat feature, particularly for 1975 and like most small block Chevy V8s, it starts easily and pulls strongly in all four gears. It's quite stock, so you know it hasn't been abused or raced, and a rumbling dual exhaust system offers a throaty sound without being annoying on the highway. The rest of the undercarriage is what you'd expect for a car that's been kept out of the elements and properly maintained throughout its life and it really does drive quite well. Factory Rally wheels with fat 225/70/15 white-letter radials round out the package.
This is an awesome entry-level Corvette that's both extremely affordable and totally road worthy. Call today!
