Vehicle Description

1975 Chevrolet Corvette Coupe

The 1975 Chevy Corvette, along with the automotive industry as a whole, would experience a significant transformation at the onset of the new model year. Because of serious health issues and environmental contamination associated with the use of leaded fuel, it was determined that the automotive industry would - and should - phase it out. Tetraethyllead, (also known as TTL, or simply "lead"), was introduced in the 1920's as an additive to prevent fuel from auto-igniting in high compression internal combustion engines. While the lead additives allowed engine designers to produce more powerful, higher compression engines, it also produced a dangerous neurotoxin through exhaust emissions, which resulted in many cases of acute, and widespread lead poisoning, especially in children.

For consignment, a nice version of the 1975 C3 Corvette. A great entry level car to get you into the Corvette game, it's in good condition and provides a sporty ride, while with the emissions regulations kicking in horsepower was limited. But with a rebuilt engine, a 4-speed automatic transmission, a respray in an Audi/VW color, and a litany of maintenance this Vette is ready to set your heart on fire without emptying your wallet.

Exterior
Fiberglass bathed in a 1 year old respray of Arctic Blue Silver Metallic, an Audi hue, paint is seen in its sculpted final form and does a great job of covering this rolling work of art. We do note some dimpling of the flat surfaces of the hood, nose and tops of the front fenders. An L-48 body matching painted T top roof and fiberglass and neoprene bumpers with hidden headlights in front, curvaceous fenders all around this coke bottle design sports car. The headlights have new actuators and regulators. On the back the rounded slightly pointed rear roll panel is one of this writer's favorite years and this retains the round deep set taillights. Chrome trimmings are seen surrounding the glass and dividing the cockpit for the T- top. A shiny stainless steel rocker trim is curving on to bridge the gap between the fenders and the doors. A cove is in the front quarter and sides show this car is pre greenhouse glass long "flying buttress" type B pillars supporting each side of the near vertical rear glass. 15-inch rally deep dish wheels are on all 4 corners and dual exhaust tips peek out from underneath the smoothed over rear bumper.

Interior
As a nice contrast to the silver blue, dark red vinyl is wrapping the surfaces of the interior which has been recently restored. We note new weatherstripping all throughout the interior. High back buckets with a center console racing forward to the tan top out angled molded dash. Deep set gauges front the original steering wheel, and dark red carpeting, very clean with minor fading floods the floors. Door panels use a smooth dark red vinyl as well as a diagonal striped vinyl insert to accentuate the chrome actuators and knobs. Noted, the door panels present with some cracking and torn stitching. Overall, a nicely presented interior.

Drivetrain
Opening the hood we are met with the rebuilt original L48 350ci V8 mill. Nicely detailed and presenting with some chromed bling added on. A single Holley 4-barrel carburetor is atop of the aluminum Weiand intake, and on back a 200R4 4-speed automatic coupled with a 3.08 rear axle to put power to the pavement. A new aluminum radiator has been added to keep things extra cool.

Undercarriage
Very nicely preserved underneath with an overall patina for the floor pans, rockers and other bolt ons underneath. All up front is dry, but we note some wetness on the underbody above the rear axle. Full independent SLA type with coil springs is the suspension and includes several cast aluminum components for extra weight loss. Power disc brakes are on all 4's and power steering provides easy navigation. As per our consignor, a new brake master cylinder, booster, calipers and power steering system have been added.

Drive-Ability
She fired right up and on the test track it performed beautifully. Nice smooth acceleration, smooth shifting and good brakes. It handles like it's on rails and the T top option is a nice feature without having to fuss with a canvas mechanism. I noticed the headlights were slow to rotate up but all else was functioning swimmingly.

A rounded rear version from 1975, in nice condition mechanically, a good solid interior, nicely cared for exterior. A great T-top cruiser, here is your chance to get into the Corvette game. Is there a little bug getting ready to bite??? Hmmmmmmmmm?!
