Desirability can still be in an affordable classic if you look hard enough. This 1975 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray offers its legendary glossy red, plenty of features, and the original numbers-matching 350 V8 under the hood. Above all, this has the swoopy good looks that made you fall in love decades ago, and it's all available for less than the price of an economy car.
Red is such a legendary color for Corvettes that they write songs about it. This one received a respray later in life, and today it still provides plenty of gloss and shine. Color is important on a '75. After all, the body was nicely color-matched with well-integrated bumpers to show off more of the wave-like profile. But like any good American, there's also plenty of the right brightwork. You instantly see it in all the right places, like the optional luggage rack, rocker panels, and the iconic Rally wheels. The result is quite a striking package offered for an affordable price.
The leather interior is factory-correct, and it gives this a great sophisticated tone against the red. That's reinforced further by the premium wood-like trim on the door panels and center console. And with power windows and removable T-tops, it's quite easy to show off this complete package to the world. There are even provisions for factory air condition to optimize open-top cruising. And a car like this was truly meant to be driven. You get a grippy three-spoke sports steering wheel, and beyond that is a large speedo and tach. Just to the side, but still at eye-level, are all the auxiliary readouts you'll need.
The engine is the original, numbers-matching L48 350 cubic inch V8. It appears stock right down to Chevy orange paint on the block and the correct gasket on the air cleaner assembly. But look closer, and you can see signs of proper care over the years. The four-barrel carburetor helps deliver plenty of power and a nice rumble from the dual exhaust. Plus, the three-speed automatic is stout enough to handle all the torque from the V8. that's what you want in a Corvette like this. After all, with a fully independent sport-tuned suspension, power steering, and four-wheel disc brakes this is a terrific weekend getaway machine.
Corvettes provide instant distinction. It's pure sports driving pleasure wrapped in a proud American heritage. And if you're quick enough, this V8 can be yours for a gone-tomorrow price. Call today!!!
