VERY NICE, #'S MATCH 454, TH400 AUTO, A/C, PWR STEER, PWR WIN, T TOPS, CLEAN FUN
This 1974 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray represents something very unique and desirable. After all, this was the only year for the C3 split rear end and the swan song for the big block, and this coupe was given it all straight from the factory – even the bold orange paint.
The code-80 Corvette Orange gives this C3 coupe the same bold first impression you get with a classic red Corvette, but the color also gives it instant distinction in a crowd. It's especially true thanks to a professional respray that gives its factory-correct color an updated more modern shine. Great paint is essential on a 1974 Stingray because the body colored nose section and the new form-fitting rear (a two-piece only for '74) give it a modern appearance where the bold orange is nicely displayed. You can tell the level of care that has gone into this coupe just by the way the panels have the kind of alignment that will make you proud to drive it around town. Plus, the 454 badging on the hood's power bulge hints to the performance that's available under your right foot if you choose to unleash it. And of course, when it comes to high power C3s, we always love the bold shine of the Rally wheel package.
Inside, the correct saddle tan leather interior looks great against the orange paint, and the wood panel trim adds to a great factory-correct and true '70s style machine. Corvettes have always been a great personal sports car in providing performance features with plenty of creature comforts to also make it a great long-distance cruiser for two. This one even has an upgraded AM/FM/cassette stereo and provisions for air conditioning. As the driver you get a three-spoke steering wheel. Just ahead of that is the large dual pod gauges, including the tach. Just to the side is a full set of auxiliary readouts for a true sports car experience. This is a T-top coupe with power windows. So you can really let the wind run through the cabin while you attack your favorite backroad.
Collectors like the 1974 model because it was the last year for the big block motor. While less than 10% opted to have the monster V8 installed, we are happy to see the numbers-matching 454 cubic-inch V8 under the hood. But more than just collect-ability, this Corvette is meant to be driven. The big V8 has a great presentation with the bold orange block and valve covers surrounded by very tidy belts and wires. The visual appeal, and the way the motor fires right up tells us there has been serious investments in this legendary powerplant. It inhales deeply through a four-barrel carburetor and exhales with authority out of a newer stainless dual exhaust. You'll have a hard time wiping the grin off your face once you get a taste of the big block's 395 pounds of torque. The quick-witted TH400 three-speed automatic transmission is the perfect companion, with gear ratios that make the most of the LS4's wide torque curve. Plus, with a fully independent sports suspension, four-wheel disc brakes, and the superior grip of modern Michelin Pilot performance tires, this is a vintage sports car with the power and poise to run circles around some more modern competition.
This Stingray is turnkey ready to be enjoyed by the first person lucky enough to grab the deal. If you want it to be you, hurry up and call today!
