For Sale or Trade for Harley-Davidson or Indian Motorcycle: This original 1975 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray has only 24,144 actual miles. I am the fourth owner of this 45-year old American classic. I personally know the previous three owners and have complete history of the car with full documentation.
It rolled off the St. Louis production line on April 13, 1975 and was purchased by J. Sommer of Pennsylvania on May 6, 1975. He registered it the next day. He moved to Arizona and had it hauled there in October, 1995 (odometer: 12,677). He owned the car for 38-1/2 years when he sold it to T. Estal of Arizona in January 2014 (odometer: 15,000 approx.) Estal sold it to S. Kingery of Colorado with 21,560 miles on April 20, 2015. I purchased it from Kingery on July 13, 2019 with an actual odometer reading of 23,416.
My Stingray has all matching numbers on its L-48 350ci V-8 motor and matching Muncie 4-speed manual transmission. It originally had a catalytic converter on it, but it was removed and now has true dual exhaust leading back to stock mufflers. I do have the catalytic converter for the next owner and it's in great shape. I also have the original orange valve covers, original black air cleaner cover, full length car cover, bra, and various other extras for the car. Due to aging, the front rubber bumper has been replaced with an upgraded material from GM. Also due to aging, the rear rubber bumper has been replaced with fiberglass. This car has NEVER been wrecked or damaged.
It has the following factory options:
A31 Power Windows
A85 Custom Shoulder Belts
C50 Rear Window Defogger
C60 Air Conditioning
J50 Power Brakes
M20 Wide Ratio Muncie 4-speed
N37 Tilt-Telescopic Steering Column
N41 Power Steering
QRZ White Letter Steel Belted Tires
U05 Dual Horns
U69 AM-FM Radio
Body Code is G12
Trim Code is 192
Paint Code is 13L
Rear End Code is LR (3.36:1)
Everything works perfect including the factory clock, air conditioning, all gauges, factory radio, etc. The power windows run up and down fully. The T-tops easily go on and off and the seals are water-tight. The factory steering wheel is in perfect shape and the tilt and telescopic options also work perfect. The custom leather trim interior is in excellent condition. The leather seats are original and in exceptional condition. The black carpet is deep black with no fading. Every interior and exterior light works. The headlights go up and down flawlessly.
The C-3 Corvettes, both convertible and coupe models, are the fastest appreciating cars currently in the Corvette lineage. You would be hard pressed to find a cleaner, more original antique classic, with such low mileage as this one. It literally starts, runs, drives, handles and stops like it did when new.
Please contact me to send you the two walk around videos I shot. These show how everything works as advertised and the superb quality of this classic American muscle car. Also feel free to contact me with any questions or requests for additional photos or videos.
