From 1968 through 1982 the third generation or C3 was built by
General Motors and from 1969 through 1976 the second generation of
Stingray. As the 1970's entered the era of safety and fuel economy
standards for the American Automakers, the Corvette tried to hold
true to their roots as the iconic American Sports Car, however they
could not escape the inevitable. By 1975 the Corvette was
advertised as the "More Efficient Corvette" with the introduction
of electronic ignitions, computers, catalytic converters and vacuum
hoses, the Corvette was being robbed of performance.
This particular 1976 Stingray has the base L-48. The carburetor has been upgraded to an Edelbrock 4 barrel. It has an automatic transmission, air conditioning, t-tops with storage bags, Edelbrock chrome air cleaner, AM/FM/Cassette player. The Stingray features power brakes, 15 inch steel wheels with the correct center caps and beauty rings. This car starts with ease and sounds awesome. It drives down the road as it should with excellent shifting and braking this car is ready to be enjoyed and driven.
