The Most Desirable Corvette Ever?

The 1967 Corvette is considered the most-loved Corvette ever produced. The combination of classic C2 styling, along with an incredible array of powertrain and comfort options, makes it one of the most desirable Corvettes ever. Not bad for a car that was never supposed to be made!

Classic Car Overview

For consignment and your visual pleasuring, a 1974 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray. Due to federal safety regs moving up to the 5mph crash bumper, the rear became rounded and rubberized just like the front to meet the regs. Sans chrome bumpers, this car presents nicely, particularly with its contrasting shiny rocker trim pieces. A numbers matching powertrain and of course those sculpted looks from 1974 have this car embedded into classic as its genre. Exterior The first year without the chrome bumpers on both ends and bowtie designers have taken rolling sculpture to another level. Curvaceous lines use hidden headlights, a shark-like open mouth front grille in black and front fenders that take on the feminine form to create the line of this car. Lets bathe all the fiberglass in Bright Yellow just so it catches a few more eyes to look a few seconds longer. A few cracks are noted in the paint and can be seen throughout along with a tear in the neoprene front bumper. Sides are exaggerated coke bottle design, a Corvette cove within the front quarters, a removable T top in body matching yellow and the vertical rear glass framed on either side with the flying buttress B pillars and its looking fine. The rear uses the Corvette round tail lights although now they are deeply embedded into a one year only roll over rear which is total neoprene and gives the required protection as per the 5mph crash law from 1974. Deep dish rally wheels all chromed up and wrapped in wide radials are on all 4 corners. The new definition of PONY car. Interior A sea of black leather buckets, carpet, dash, and door panels, with just a few areas of added woodgrain make up the original interior. Original deeply sunk in round gauges front the steering wheel, center of dash, and even some wood applique on the console with horizontal wheels for temperature and vent settings...modern! The 4-speed manual transmission shifter is here as well. Just above is a factory AM/FM player and a series of 5 round gauges in a central panel with some upper warning lights. The passenger dash has a leather pouch for storage. Black carpeting floods the floors and the T panels are showing no water leakage around the seals which are supple and shiny. Drivetrain Lifting the front hinged hood, we see a reveal of the power plant for this curvy gal in the form of a 350ci V8 L82 mill. It is numbers matching and includes a chrome air cleaner and a single 4-barrel carb on top. On the back is a Muncie M20 4-speed manual transmission, also number matching, and the rear axle is set at a 3.55 ratio with Positraction. All is clean and nice under here kids! Undercarriage Some surface rust on the frame but overall structurally sound with just a bit of cracking and an open area on the drivers floor board. Corvette suspension abounds and power disc brakes are on all 4 corners. Very aero under here. Drive-Ability Runs great, starts right up with a roar. While the drive was good with ample acceleration, good handling, and solid bias free braking. As a matter of fact, the only issue we noted was a slightly noisy throwout bearing for the clutch. Yellow that is far from mellow, a curvaceous sculptural design and after you purchase. Im not sure if you should frame it and put it into a museum or just drive and enjoy the heck out of it. Id take the latter. 1Z37T4S421364 1-Chevrolet Z-Corvette 37-Coupe T-350ci V8 4bbl 250hp L82 4-1974 S-St. Louis, MO Assy Plant 421364-Sequential Unit Number TRIM TAG H19-March 19th 1974 Build TRIM 404-Black Leather PAINT 56L-Bright Yellow
