The C3 'Vette continues to be an affordable and fun way to join one of the most passionate car communities around. This particular 1975 Chevrolet Corvette coupe offers a great custom color combination, its original L48, rare four-speed manual, and the swoopy good looks that have made these cars an icon.
This is one of those classics that remains original in all the right places, but it has been given enough personal touches to always stand out in a crowd. It starts with the factory original Silver Metallic paint, but you know there's much more to this one. The painted black stripe is a great custom touch that even carries a cool family resemblance to the SS stripe package from other Chevys. This glossy black running the length of the car does a great job of highlighting the C3's extra long front end and the one-piece rear bumper that was new for '75. The other reason why the gloss looks so nice on this coupe is because the panels have a great fit and the gaps are uniform. You can see it in the pictures and feel it in the way the doors shut with authority. The final custom touch is the period-correct set of American Racing Vector wheels.
Code 192 stands for a black leather interior. It looks fantastically preserved on its own, but thanks to the T-tops, you can open this one up to let the color inside nicely coordinate with the accent strip on the exterior. It's quite possible that those are the original seats, and they don't appear faded or dried out by the sun, so you know this Corvette has been loved. The same dark luster is still found on the door panels and carpeting. Like any good Corvette of the era, this one came loaded with features including power windows, tilt/telescope wheel, and provisions for air conditioning. For the driver, there's a comfortable three-spoke sports steering wheel. Beyond that is the large speedometer and tachometer in front, and a full gauge package prominently to the side. While this one feels like a classic right down to the shifter knob, it has been nicely upgraded with an AM/FM/CD stereo so you can always listen to your favorite tunes when out cruising.
Under the hood is the numbers-matching L48 350 cubic-inch motor. This V8 kept the Corvette rated at 165 hp, in an era when horsepower figures were plummeting. But the real story here is that it also produced more torque than a Mercedes sports car of the day. That means you develop a sold hit of power low in the rev range that gets your heart racing, and the dual exhaust growling. Plus, while most came with automatic transmissions, this one gives you the most out of the V8 with the control of a four-speed manual. So while this 'Vette has averaged only 2,740 miles per year, you might not be able to resist adding a little more to the odometer. Especially since it also has easy driving features like power steering and four-wheel disc brakes.
This factory-correct C3 coupe is the perfect way to get an affordable 'Vette with killer looks and an aggressive heart. Call today!!
