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

1975 Chevrolet Corvette Convertible The 1975 Chevy Corvette, along with the automotive industry as a whole, would experience a significant transformation at the onset of the new model year. Because of serious health issues and environmental contamination associated with the use of lead fuel, it was determined that the automotive industry would and should phase it out. Tetraethyllead, (also known as TTL, or simply lead ), was introduced in the 1920s as an additive to prevent fuel from auto-igniting in high compression internal combustion engines. While the lead additives allowed engine designers to produce more powerful, higher compression engines, it also produced a dangerous neurotoxin through exhaust emissions, which resulted in many cases of acute, and widespread lead poisoning, especially in children. For consignment, a nice version of the 1975 C3 Corvette. A great entry level car to get you into the Corvette game, its in good condition and provides a sporty ride, while with the emissions regulations kicking in horsepower was limited. But then you could save gas! Exterior Fiberglass bathed in Dark Red Metallic paint is seen in its sculpted final form and does a great job of covering this rolling work of art. A convertible top in white canvas, and neoprene bumpers with hidden headlights in front, curvaceous fenders all around this coke bottle design pony car. On the back the rounded slightly pointed rear roll panel is one of this writers favorite years and this retains the round deep set taillights. Chrome trimmings are seen surrounding the glass. A shiny stainless steel rocker trim is curving on to bridge the gap between the fenders and the doors. A cove is in the front quarter and harkens back to the early Vettes. 15 inch rally deep dish wheels are on all 4 corners and dual exhaust peek out from underneath the smoothed over rear bumper with 2 black rubber inserts.. Interior To go with the dark red exterior, oxblood leather is wrapping the surfaces of the interior. High back thinly styled buckets with a center console racing forward to the top of the angled molded dash. Deep set gauges front the original steering wheel, and red carpeting very clean floods the floors. Door panels use wood appliqu as well as some red carpeting that matches the floors. There is some wood appliqu on the console surrounding the shifter and climate control wheels. Moving up in the center, a 5 gauge cluster with some warning lights are all with a black panel. Like a sweet maraschino cherry floating in a soda pop this Vette is a stunner. Drivetrain Opening the hood we are bowled over by the orange/red GM block and polished chrome valve covers of this 350ci L82 V8 numbers matching mill. During an engine rebuild our consigner decided to put a bit of performance enhancers within the confines of this 350 so we can report a Comp Cam XR270HR with .495i/.503e lift and a 218i/224e duration @ .050, Comp Roller Tipped Rockers are also in. Dyno results have this engine weighing in at 356.7 horses. Nicely detailed and presentable, it has some extra chromed bling bolts. A single 4 barrel carburetor is atop, and on back is a numbers matching T10 4 speed manual transmission coupled with a 3.55 rear axle. Undercarriage Very nicely preserved underneath with an overall patina for the floor pans, rockers and other bolt ons underneath. Full Independent SLA type with coil springs is the suspension and includes several cast aluminum components for extra weight loss. Suspension parts appear to have been recently replaced as the suspension is all shiny and black with little road dirt. Power disc brakes are on all 4s. Drive-Ability She fired right up and on the test track it performed beautifully. Nice smooth acceleration, smooth shifting and good brakes. It handles like its on rails and the convertible is a nice feature to have some wind in your hair. All functions were in working order. A rounded rear version from 1975, in nice condition mechanically, a good solid exterior, striking oxblood interior, all wrapped up in a neat C3 package. A great top down cruiser, here is your chance to get into the Corvette game. Is there a little bug getting ready to bite??? This life is a bowl of Maraschino cherries.
