Seven Hills Motorcars is proud to offer this numbers matching 1975 Corvette Stingray in fantastic condition. This Corvette looks excellent, runs great, and is an amazing driver. The car is totally solid with nice lines and no rust issues. It is finished in the beautiful color combination of Dark Red Metallic (74) over Dark Red (192) interior. This is the correct and original color scheme as verified by the codes on the trim tag pictured in this ad.

In addition to the correct paint and trim codes this Corvette is completely "Numbers Matching" and almost every part we checked on the car is correct with the proper part numbers and appropriate date codes. We have run the numbers on literally hundreds of Corvettes over the years and there are very few that are so correct and original. Even very detailed parts like the intake manifold, distributor, and carburetor are all correct and original. The last six digits of the VIN, 433973, are stamped on the engine pad, which is pictured in this ad, and the engine is original to the car. The transmission is also original with the last six digits of the VIN stamped on the main case and pictured.

This Stingray comes with dozens of receipts and service records for maintenance and repairs dating back to the 1980's. The receipts total over $13,000 for service over the years.

This Corvette is ready to be used and enjoyed. We have this car priced to sell and are offering an excellent opportunity to own a clean Corvette at an unbeatable value. One could easily buy this car now and sell it for more than the purchase price in years to come as the market on C3 Corvettes is very hot right now and on the rise. Please peruse all of the photos, video, list of numbers, and other information to get a true sense of how clean and nice this Corvette really is.

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.

Exterior

The Dark Red Metallic exterior is in fantastic condition. As one can see in the photos the paint has a terrific gloss, deep shine, and smooth finish. Both doors open and shut nicely. The American Racing slotted aluminum wheels have a brilliant finish and no major curb rash. The Goodyear Eagle raised white letter tires are correctly sized 225/70R15 and have plenty of tread left. There are no major blemishes that have been intentionally excluded from the many photos. There are some very tiny imperfections around the car that were too small to show up in the photos, but nothing else that is really noticeable from about five or ten feet away. As one can see in the many photos of the underside of the car, it is very clean underneath. The frame is totally solid with no rust around the "key hole" area in front of the rear tire and we have not seen evidence of corrosion around the windshield or "birdcage," which are the most prevalent areas for rust on C3 Corvettes. We have included specific photos of the areas most prone to rust to show how nice this car looks.

Window Date Codes

Please note that almost all of the glass on this Corvette, both pieces of door glass and the rear window are all date coded and original as each piece predates the car's body build date of July 3, 1975 (J03). Original glass is a good indication that this car has had no major accident history and never sustained significant damage.

Interior

The Dark Red interior in this Corvette is in outstanding condition. The seats look like new with no holes, no split seams, and no wear at all. The seat is not worn the typical spot on the bolster where the driver gets in and out. The gauge faces are clean and crisp and the lenses are clear. The carpet is also in great condition with no stains, rips, holes. This includes the rear carpet which is often neglected. The dash and console look great with no sun fading. There are a couple of small cracks in the typical spot on the speaker grills. The door panels are in great shape overall and the door pulls are solid and intact. The car has a Corvette specific radio that was made specifically for this model. Most importantly, the dash has never been cut or modified. This Corvette has never been smoked in; there are no burns marks and no aroma of cigarettes.

Corvette interiors from this era are not known to wear well and the excellent condition of this interior is a huge testament to the meticulous care and attention this car has received throughout its life.

Mechanical

This Corvette seems to be in very good mechanical condition. As stated above, there are over $13,000 in receipts with the car so it has been well maintained over the years. The car starts right away every time, runs well, and idles smooth. It drives great on the road and at highway speeds. In the video below one can observe the car accelerating on the highway up to about 70mph, shifting through all the gears, braking to stoplight, and going through some curves. Please note that there are no strange noises or vibrations and the car performs quite well overall. The transmission shifts smoothly throughout the power-band. The brakes are responsive and do not pull to one side or the other. The car runs cool and does not overheat. This Corvette has plenty of power and is quite fast. Also, the engine compartment is beautifully clean, detailed, and correct as one can see in the photos.

The radio works as do all the exterior lights, interior lights, indicators, wipers, and power windows. The blower for the a/c and heater works on all speeds. The air conditioning itself works and blows cold. One can observe the a/c compressor clicking on and engaging properly in the video. The vacuum system for the headlights works. Also, the headlights go up correctly with either the headlight switch or vacuum override switch. Their complete operation from both switches can be viewed in the video. All of the gauges work with the obvious exception of the clock. The car now has a true dual exhaust system with no catalytic converter and a very healthy exhaust note as one can hear in the video. The horn does not work. Not enough can be said as to how much of a pleasure it is to drive this car, especially with the T-tops out on a beautiful day.

Overall Condition

Overall, this 1975 Corvette is in wonderful condition. The beautiful color combination, the extensive service history, and the excellent overall condition make this Corvette particularly desirable.

One could easily enjoy this vehicle for severa...for more information please contact the seller.
