Amazing 1974 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray -- 1 owner with 5900 ACTUAL/ORIGINAL MILES!
Serious buyers only...please read entire listing and contact Brandon at 501.733.3664 for questions or additional information or pictures/videos.
This is an absolutely amazing 1974 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray. This is a true survivor and would be perfect for any collection. This is a one owner vehicle and it has 5900 original miles (no that is not a typo...see pictures) and has been meticulously maintained its entire life. This is part of a collection and the entire collection has been well-maintained. The owner of this car worked at a Chevrolet dealership and had this car ordered for his father at Bill Dean Chevrolet in Conway, Arkansas. After his father passed away, it moved to the current owner's collection. There are no stories with this one...its the real deal. This car comes complete with all original sale documents included. Picture of documents available upon request.
This is an L-48 4-barrel car paired with an automatic transmission. Factory options include power windows, power brakes, power steering and factory air conditioning. A full tune up has been done with new hoses and belts completed. The brake calipers and factory air conditioning were sent off and rebuilt to factory specs. The original tires have been replaced to be safe for the road after the Firestone recall on the original set. The car has the recall replacement tires that were installed by Firestone. All the tune up and fresh parts were done 10 years ago. Before that time, the car sat virtually undriven, but always maintained, for 20 years. The T-Tops have never been off the car and the car has never seen rain. The current owner did install a brand new fiberglass front nose and rear piece. If you study these cars, you know that they had issues fading in these places...not this one! That issue has been corrected.
During shipping to the dealership when new, the vehicle above this car leaked. The fluid hit this vehicle and the dealership touched up the paint. This is the only thing keeping this car from being a #1 conditioned car. At the dealership, the paint did not match up perfectly so you can see these imperfections. While it is hard to photograph, I do have images showing the imperfections.
I have many other pictures and videos of this car available via text and/or email by request.

Briggs & Stratton is best known for making lawnmower engines, but the company has experimented with cars. One of those cars was recently featured on “Jay Leno’s Garage.” Decades ago, Briggs & Stratton built a one-off, six-wheeled hybrid. Work on the car began in 1978 and was completed in 1980—long before hybrid powertrains became mainstream. […]
