Seven Hills Motorcars is proud to offer this 1976 Corvette Stingray
in excellent driver condition and priced to sell with only 50,625
original miles. This Stingray looks fantastic, runs great, and is
an excellent driver. It is totally solid with great lines. The
Corvette is finished in the beautiful and desirable color
combination of Classic White (10) over Dark Brown Leather (722).
This is the correct and original color combination verified by the
codes on the trim tag pictured in this ad.
This is an excellent opportunity to own a wonderful classic
Corvette Stingray that is ready to be used and enjoyed at an
unbeatable value. One could easily buy this car now and sell it for
more than the purchase price in the years to come as the market on
C3 Corvette is hot right now and on the rise. The low original
mileage is supported not only by the condition of the car, but also
the clear Ohio title, pictured in this ad, showing the mileage as,
"Actual." Please peruse all of the photos, video, and information
to get a true sense of how nice this Corvette really is.
The previous owner installed a very high performance, high power,
built small block in the car. He said the engine was built by a
very reputable race shop in Kentucky at a cost of over $6,000. The
engine sounds great, makes a ton of power, and this Corvette is
blisteringly fast. This is a more modern engine that will be more
reliable and much more powerful than the original L48 V8.
As a side note, this Corvette is not a dealer auction vehicle. We
hand pick each car after careful inspection. Our Corvettes come
from owners who expect their car to go to someone that will give
the vehicle the same care and attention as they did. We invite and
encourage you to examine the car in person or have the car
inspected. Please take the time to scrutinize each picture. We
photograph each vehicle to the greatest extent so you can feel
confident about your purchase. If you have a question about the
Corvette, just give us a call.
The Classic White exterior is in nice driver condition. As one can
see in the photos, the paint has a terrific gloss and deep shine.
Often Corvettes will have particularly chipped up front ends, this
car does not. Both doors open and shut nicely. The Cragar chrome
wheels are in excellent condition with a brilliant finish and no
curb rash. The tires have plenty of tread left and are correctly
sized 225/70R15. There are no major scratches, scrapes, or other
imperfections that have been intentionally excluded from the
photos. There are some small blemishes that were too faint to show
up in the photos, but noting that is really noticeable from about
five or ten feet away. There is a small crack in the corner of the
windshield, as one can see in the photos it is not very noticeable.
As one can see in the many photos of the underside of the car, it
is very clean underneath. We have included specific photos of the
areas most prone to rust to show how nice this car looks.

speeds. All of the gauges work and even the clock runs. The vacuum
system for the headlights works correctly. Also, the headlights go
up correctly with either the headlight switch or vacuum override
switch. There complete operation form both switches can be viewed
in the video. The car drives like it may have a lower rear end
gear. This car came from the factory with a/c; the previous owner
removed the compressor when he installed the new engine. Not enough

especially with the extra power from the engine and the T-tops out
on a beautiful day.
