We are excited to offer this awesome example of a 3rd Generation Corvette. Bright Red paint, a 427 under the hood, sidepipes, and a 4 speed manual are just a few of the positives going for this classic Vette. Putting the top down on a warm day and taking a cruise in this car with the side pipes screaming in your ear will put a huge smile on your face. Just remember you're in a “pull me over red” car, so drawing extra attention to the car isn't really necessary, but it's so hard to resist mashing the 'go pedal' and making all that big block V8 noise.
This Vette is the result of a restoration that was an ongoing project for 2 ½ years. This car is straight, with all body panels having been carefully hung, and precisely adjusted. Being an early Third generation, this car has that nice bit of contrast thanks to the chrome bumpers front and rear. The car was stripped down to the fiberglass body before being repainted in red. Finished in the correct Rally Red paint (code: 974), this car is hard to miss. The paint is bright, glossy, and like the trim on the car, shows very well. The underside is very clean with a rust-free frame. It's obvious that great care was taken during the restoration, even under the car. A close look reveals Polyurethane bushings, new bolts throughout, new suspension components including shocks and springs, and a new fuel tank. The flowing lines of the 3rd Generation Corvette are unmistakable.
During the restoration process, the interior was refinished by a reputable upholstery shop. The results speak for themselves - the fit and finish is very nice. The interior has been left trimmed the way it came from the factory - Black vinyl (Code: STD) Slide into the driver's seat and you'll see that all the little details have been looked after, and are in very good condition. As a whole, the interior shows well. Seats, door panels, gauges, dashboard, even the “pouches” on the passenger's side dashboard are all in very nice condition. An AM/FM/Cassette player is mounted just below the factory auxiliary gauges, which offer the chance to keep track of the engine vitals.
Under the hood is a 427ci V8 mated to a 4 speed manual transmission, which is also indicated on the hood cowl, and plaque at the base of the shift knob. This makes an awesome combination in a legendary sports car! A few performance parts have also been added to the big block in the form of a FiTech fuel injection system, Edelbrock Intake Manifold, polished valve covers, and polished or chrome trim pieces throughout the engine bay. As you can see, the exhaust system has been upgraded to side pipes, and also consists of heat tape wrapped headers. As you can imagine, it sounds great!
