Seven Hills Motorcars is very proud to offer this completely numbers matching 1977 Corvette in excellent condition. This Corvette looks stunning, runs great, and is an excellent driver. The car is totally solid with nice lines and no rust issues. It is finished in the beautiful and highly desirable color combination of Silver Metallic (13) over Smoke Grey (152). This is the correct and original color scheme as verified by the codes on the trim tag pictured in this ad.

I have personally driven this car over 60 miles. During that time that car was completely reliable, has no issues, and was a true pleasure to drive.

Besides the correct paint and trim codes, this Corvette is "Numbers Matching" meaning the engine and transmission in the car are the correct and original units that were installed in the car new at the factory in 1977. Virtually 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 distributor, intake, and carburetor are all date coded and original. The last six digits of the VIN, 437387, 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 Corvette is ready to be used and enjoyed. We have this car priced to sell and are offering an excellent opportunity to own a very desirable 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. The original T-Top bags are included with the car.

It is absolutely loaded with appealing options as one can see in the extensive list of RPO codes in this ad such as the tilt wheel, sport mirrors, air conditioning that blows cold, rear window defogger, tilt/telescopic steering column, power brakes, and power windows. Please peruse all of the photos, video, list of numbers, and other information to get a true sense of how nice, clean, and original 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.

Model Description

The 1977 model year is a special one for the Corvette and is considered to be the best of both worlds in some respects by many with the more vintage, "Stingray" style rear window and a more modern and comfortable interior. Most notable about 1977 model year was that it was the last year for the straight back window and "Sugar Scoop" rear decklid treatment. The 1978 model year introduced the new large rear window along with the most extensive redesign in the C3 production run. The interior in 1977 was slightly improved to make the driver more comfortable by moving the steering wheel forward two inches. 1977 was also the last year to feature the round gauges, storage pocket, and retain the truly vintage sense of the Stingray cockpit. Many people prefer the more classic look and feel of the early C3's, such as this car, over the 1978-82 model years.

1977 saw the steering column repositioned 2 inches (51 mm) closer to the dashboard to allow a more "arms out" position for the driver. The custom interior with leather seat trim was now standard, with cloth and leather a no cost option. A redesigned center console permitted universal Delco radio options. Auxiliary gauges were restyled and the ammeter was replaced with a voltmeter. The sun visors were redesigned to swivel so as to provide some glare protection from the side as well as the front. Chevrolet responded to the criticism of the previous year's steering wheel with an all new three-spoke leather-wrapped unit, which was well received. Chevrolet featured this new wheel prominently on the front of their new Corvette sales brochure. The new wheel came on all cars fitted with the optional tilt-telescopic steering column which was ordered on all but a few thousand Corvettes. Corvette's refinement as a touring sports car continued as both power steering and power brakes became standard and new options included body-colored sport mirrors, cruise control, and a new convenience group. The convenience group included dome light delay, headlight warning buzzer, underhood light, low fuel warning light, interior courtesy lights, and passenger side visor mirror. Early in production, the engine paint color was changed from Chevy orange to Corporate Blue. The Stingray script, seen on front fenders since 1969 disappeared, but new cross-flags emblems began appearing on fenders before the model year ended. A Corvette milestone was reached during 1977 as Chevrolet had built a half million Corvettes since production began in 1953.

Exterior

The Silver Metallic (13) exterior is in very nice driver condition. As one can see in the photos the finish has a terrific gloss, deep shine, and smooth finish. Both doors open and shut nicely. The rally wheels have a brilliant finish and no curb rash. The raised white letter tires are literally brand new with less than ten miles on them and are correctly sized 225/70R15. There are no major imperfections that have been intentionally excluded from the photos. There are some spots on the front bumper visible in the photos and some very tiny blemishes that were too faint to show up in the pictures, but nothing 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. 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 is date coded and original, both side windows and the rear window are all date coded and original each piece predates the car's body build date of June 2, 1977 (K02). Original glass is a good indication that this car has had no major accident history and never sustained significant damage.

Interior

The Silver Grey (152) interior in this Corvette is in great condition. The gauge faces are clean and crisp and the lenses are clear. The door panels are in fantastic shape and are not cracked in the typical area where the driver's elbow sits. The door pulls are solid and intact. The seats look in person as they do in the photos with some wear on the driver's seat. The carpet is also in good condition with no major stains and a small spot on the passenger footwell. The dash and console look good with no fading or sun damage and a small crack in the center. The jack and jack handle are still with the car, stored correctly behind the passenger seat. The original spare is still with the car as well. This Corvette has never been smoked in; there are no burns marks and no aroma of cig...for more information please contact the seller.
