If there was ever a contest to see what Corvette captured its era best, we think the mid ’70’s sharks would win the prize!
When the new C3 or “Shark” bodied Corvettes were introduced in ’68, they were a real sensation! Although, the chassis were essentially the same as the previous mid-year cars, the outside was all-new and featured some interesting technology (for the time), such as a fiber optic light monitoring system and pneumatic headlight and windshield wiper doors. The body evolved over the years and in ’74 both the front and rear bumpers were converted over to energy absorbing urethane units.
This really sharp ’74 came to us from a local So. Cal. client who owned the car for 30 years! During that time the exterior was painted a vibrant Torch Red and the interior was redone in Tan leather. A new tan soft top was also fitted. What’s unusual is that this Corvette came from the factory in Silver Mist w/Silver interior. A very rare color combination! The matching #’s L48 was stroked out to 383ci and rebuilt and the whole car was given a general once-over. The result is a beautiful ’74 that runs and drives fantastic! Options include; A-C, P/B, P/S, P/W, Deluxe interior, tilt/tele steering column and chrome spoke wheels (how ’70’s.).
Comes with service and restoration receipts, as well as the original am/fm radio.
