Time to get your hands on a numbers-matching and four-speed Stingray for a value price. This 1976 Chevrolet Corvette is a head-turner in its original color theme, and it's a loaded classic stunner that loves to be a quality classic.
The trim tag tells us this was born a Silver Metallic and these cars always look both sophisticated and speedy in this hue. It was even refreshed later in life to continue to have an excellent depth and a good gloss in the sunshine. The odometer is believed to reflect the full actual mileage, and that tells you this coupe has not spent the last 45 years doing the daily grind. But the way headlights fit flush and the doors close with confidence are the real telltale ways you understand the care this C3 has been given. And while these later cars have the urethane bumpers for a more streamlined style, the Rally wheels, rocker trim, and optional luggage rack give this true American the right amount of brightwork.
You can tell plenty of option boxes were checked off when you look inside. It starts with Smoked Gray leather bucket seats that truly envelope the driver and passenger. They are complete with just the right amount of tasteful wear for the leather, and so it doesn't distract from the great color combo the leather provides. In fact, the seats demonstrate the underlying feeling that makes this Corvette special: it's a well-respected and maintained classic. Even details like the courtesy lights and key busser are working. You also have power windows, a tilt steering column, an upgraded AM/FM digital tuner, and provisions for factory air conditioning (it will need servicing and/or components to blow cold again.) Overall the interior presents well and is the perfect complementing color to the paint, so you'll love taking out the T-tops and parking this one where everybody can see it.
Under the hood is the numbers-matching 350 cubic-inch V8 with a four-barrel carb on top. The motor fires up eagerly to tell you it's well-maintained (we even have the records to prove it.) Plus, you have a year-correct (possibly original?) four-speed manual transmission. We're told it's an M21 unit, and the close-ratio ones are more fun and they were one of the rarest options for 1976. So now you get to choose with the quick switch of gears if the trip is going to be mild or wild. And no matter how you drive it, the dual exhaust and Magnaflow mufflers will provide that great V8 soundtrack. And the fully independent suspension, power steering, and four-wheel power disc brakes make for a fun classic driver.
The price is right; the colors are right; and the four-speed is irresistible. This is the affordable Corvette experience you've been searching for. Call today!!!
