1974 Chevrolet Corvette Convertible
The Corvette has been an American icon since 1953. The C3 Corvettes ran from 1968 to 1982 and underwent many changes in that time. The 1974 was the first year for no chrome bumper, the last year for true dual exhaust and the last Corvette without a catalytic converter.
Why This Car Is Special
This Corvette has the numbers matching 350 V8 engine under the hood and runs fantastic. It has a great options list and a nice Pearl White paintjob. Two tops add to the rarity and cool factor of this collector Corvette.
The 350 is rated at 195 horsepower from the factory and has been upgraded with an HEI distributor for a reliable spark. The engine is clean and nicely painted in Chevrolet orange. A Turbo 400 automatic transmission backs up the V8 engine and shifts nice and smooth. 4-wheel power disc brakes provide plenty of stopping power for this Vette. Power options include power brakes, power steering, power windows and A/C.
Black vinyl bucket seats are split by the factory center console with shifter. A Retrosound AM/FM radio cranks out the classic rock and you have your choice of hardtop, soft top, or no top at all! The power windows are controlled by switches on the center console, and there is plenty of storage behind the seats in these C3 Corvettes. The rear is carpeted with cubby holes which house the battery, and anything else you need to carry with you. There is also room enough for a suitcase or folding chairs for attending car shows in your new classic.
Classic White was the factory color for this Vette and it has been repainted white, with a bit of pearl to bring it into the 21st century. The black vinyl wrapped removable hardtop is a very rare option with only 367 Corvettes receiving this treatment in 1974. Rally wheels are wrapped with new radial tires and are a classic muscle car wheel choice. A chrome luggage rack adorns the rear for additional storage for longer trips. This car shows very well and is sure to be the envy of your friends and neighbors.
The 1974 Corvette was the start of a new era for Corvette and these 74-82 Vettes are climbing in value every day. This car being numbers matching and having some rare options makes it a must add for any collector, or a great car to start your collection.
