1974 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray L-82 - NUMBERS MATCHING - ORIGINAL
PAINT - ORIGINAL INTERIOR- NEVER RESTORED - ABSOLUTELY BEAUTIFUL.
Purchased this 1974 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray L-82 from a private
car collector in Georgia in 2007. I drove it right off his personal
showroom floor, out to the highway and straight up to Virginia.
What an incredible ride that was - not 1 single issue or hiccup. It
runs even better today than when I bought it as I have made a
couple of upgrades, (see below). This is a completely original
numbers matching car. The interior is absolutely beautiful and
everything (including the clock) works perfectly. There is very
little wear on the carpet and seats and none on the dash, doors or
T-Tops. To my knowledge, this vehicle has never even been smoked in
- which is pretty great for a car that was purchased in 1974. Some
of the original equipment: - T-Tops. - Air-Conditioning - The
original A/C and Heat work perfectly. - Power Steering. - Tilt
Steering. - Power Brakes. - Power Windows. - Rear Chrome Luggage
Rack - Original Corvette period polished aluminum wheels with disc
brakes. - Original stereo is still in the dash but I had a modern
stereo added to the car, (see below). - Original Power Stereo
Antenna. - Original Clock - works perfectly. - All original Gauges
and Dials - all work perfectly. A little bit about the 1974

regardless of reduced horsepower and net (bhp) ratings. The L-82
engine remained at 250 hp and the 454 cu. in. (7.4L) LS4 dropped
slightly to 270 hp. Hi-Performance Cars magazine in a L-48, L-82
and LS4 comparison test, September 1973, said: 'Our choice for the
all-around best performer must go to the base 350 L-48 engine...
