The Story behind this ‘76 Chevrolet Corvette SABER-----
Several weeks ago we had an incredible 1973 Volkswagen convertible (that was a unbelievable front engine Chevy 427 Pro-Street vehicle) ... and ... a gentleman contacted us and stated that he loved "One-of-a-Kind" vehicles. He wanted our "One-of-a-Kind" Pro-Street VW and offered this 1976 Corvette Saber as a trade-in.
Well ... I had never heard of a Saber so he had to fill me in on the history and the rareness of this car. He was especially proud of being invited to last year’s 2018 Carlisle Import & Performance Nationals (the largest corvette meet in the world) to display the vehicle since it was such a rare Corvette.
In fact ... that is why he personally performed a 8 month "Nut & Bolt / Frame Off" restoration of the Saber so it would show as perfect as he could possibly make it.
u n b e l i e v e a b l e !!!
some of the high points of the restoration were:
1. rebuilt stock independent suspension
2. full custom interior with leather seats & door panels
3. new stereo with power antenna, back up camera, navigation & blue tooth
4. remote controlled tilt nose using 2 linear actuators
5. Hotchkiss suspension & biostein shocks
6. new 4 piston calipers with drilled and slotted rotors
7. chrome block hugger headers & side exhaust
8. dual electric cooling fans
9. shaved door handles
10. t-tops & blacked out moldings
11. all new tires
12. new custom polished mag wheels
This weekend I drove to Miami to pick up 2 cars with my son Joshua ... and ... on the way home, a gentleman called me and stated that he was looking at our web site FSDHotRodRanch.com
and noticed that we had a yellow Saber noted as a trade-in.
he then offered that he was the original builder. A retired mechanical engineer, he now lived in Hollywood, Florida. He was a wonderful gentleman and confirmed all the information that I had been told by the previous owner and expanded on the story. He also stated that he would love to know where the car ended up ... and ... I stated that I would share his information with the new owner.
Putting the power behind the driver has been proposed frequently, and for more than 60 years
GM Styling Division had updated the sports car and added a rotary engine before the automaker pulled the plug on the project
They called it “King of the Hill”
