It’s time to enjoy a great cruising classic for an affordable price. This 1977 Chevrolet Corvette has a terrific color combo, T-tops, side pipes, and all the right upgrades to make it a true driver’s car. And when you do stop off at the shows, people will love to know you’ve got a numbers-matching V8 under the hood.
This car has the perfect hue for current times, but it was actually born this shade of dark red four decades ago. And that’s the exact way to view this whole Corvette – a true classic with modern appeal. These later C3s are really coming into their own. The shark-like nose and well-integrated rear panel were now painted to match the body, which gives it a more up-to-date-look. Plus, 1977 was the final year for the desirable flying buttress rear pillars. All the elements of this one have been treated with care, and you can tell by the way the headlight door fit flush and the iconic Rally wheels still shine. But then you also will love the look of the modern upgrades, like how the tinted windows coordinate nicely with the dark paint and the intimidating shine of the side pipes.
And since you have already seen how well blacked-out windows goes against the exterior dark red, you’ll love the scene when you open the door. The deep dark appearance is on the seats, carpets, door panels, center console, and dash for a true uniform appearance. And you can share it with the world whenever you want to take out the T-tops. But this isn’t a full sea of darkness thanks to items like the wood paneling on the dash and the spokes of the sports steering wheel brightening up the atmosphere. You have the large speedo and tach directly in front of you, and there are all the auxiliary gauges you’ll need sitting prominently in the center. This is already a great sports car, but if you desire creature comforts, it’s also easy to oblige with power windows, cruise control, an upgraded AM/FM/CD stereo, and provisions for air conditioning.
Under the hood is the original, numbers-matching 350 cubic-inch V8. It’s even still topped by the big Quadrajet four-barrel carburetor. And while we love how that lets the V8 inhale deeply, we bet you’ll love how it exhales even better. That’s because the headers add both power and growl as they feed those intimidating side pipes. And while this looks and sounds ferocious, you’ll should have no worries taking this to any of the events no matter how far away. After all, Corvettes are good for speed, but this one is a nice car for the long trips, too. That’s thanks to features like the three-speed automatic transmission, power steering, fully independent suspension, and four-wheel disc brakes.
Complete with owner’s manual, you’re looking at a great classic that comes with a pedigree usually reserved for well above its asking price. So you know you need to hurry on this one. Call today!!!
