1977 Chevrolet Corvette

The third generation of Corvette, known as the C3, was introduced in 1967 and continued to be produced until 1982. Corvettes have always had a huge following with the C3 being no different and actually setting sales records in 1979 when just under 54,000 units were produced. While the motors and chassis components were carried over from the previous generation the C3 introduced a completely restyled exterior and interior. This generation also introduced the T-Top style that would give owners the option of cruising in a coupe or popping them off on fair weather days. This '77 is a good looking driver classic that has had 1 repaint in its life. It is a factory dark Corvette Red making 1 of 3,434 in this color combo. It has a nice Black accents on the low rise cowl hood and it also wears its original luggage rack on the rear deck. It is a nice little car that rides on a set of Rally wheels with Legend GT Eldorado tires.

It is an original L82 car with its stock 350 ci V8 motor. This was the higher HP motor for the year and is combined with an automatic transmission. The car has a new dual exhaust system and sounds great. It has 4 wheels power disc brakes as well as power steering and AC making it a comfortable classic to cruise around in. In 2020 the car was gone through with various repairs including a new wiper motor, horn, hood latch, hood release, fuel gauge, and speedo cable.
