Now here's a C3 'Vette with a difference. This 1974 Chevrolet Corvette 383 Stroker is no ordinary C3 like many others, but it's received a comprehensive restoration and some significant performance upgrades. Reportedly having done just 600 miles since its rebirth, this 'Vette has seen over $21,000 worth of parts invested in it, plus labor that's unaccounted for. Yes, receipts are available, as are those pertaining to the restoration carried out in 2022. If you're looking for a classic Corvette that's also different, step right up and take a closer look.
This 1974 Chevrolet Corvette 383 Stroker is painted in gloss black, which brings out its potency even better, especially with a silver air cleaner sticking out of an aperture in the hood. We'll get to what's under the hood in the next section, but for now, let's appreciate details such as the pop-up headlamps, muscular flanks, and aftermarket wheels that clearly wear meaty drag radials from Mickey Thompson. The rear showcases a slightly jacked-up stance, with twin tailpipes pointing downwards and not creating much of a visual spectacle but a mighty aural one when the V8 awakens. Despite all this, the car retains its T-top configuration so that you can enjoy some open-air motoring at will. Inside, there's seating for two occupants in a cabin that's predominantly black. The gauges have been replaced with newer Auto Meter units. We've also got upgraded sounds, courtesy of Alpine speakers and a Kenwood head unit with Bluetooth, USB, CD, and AUX compatibility. There's also a controller for the Holley Super Sniper EFI system directly beneath the head unit. However, we don't see the climate controls anymore, so we can assume that the system has been deactivated. It looks like you'll have to roll the power windows down and rely on natural cooling.
This 1974 Chevrolet Corvette 383 Stroker, as the name suggests, packs a 383ci Stroker V8. However, that's just the tip of the proverbial iceberg. That exposed air cleaner sucks in cool air, cleans it, and thrusts it directly within the bowels of a Weiand 177 supercharger, where it's compressed and sent to the engine for combustion. There's also a Holley Super Sniper EFI system and a Holley Hyper Spark ignition system. The current owner reports that the powerplant makes 500hp, sent to the rear wheels via a Super T-10 four-speed manual gearbox. The braking has received an upgrade, too, with disc brakes on all four corners.
