The third generation, or C3 Corvette, will always be remembered for its unique styling. The work of Bill Mitchell and Zora Arkus-Duntov, this generation ran from 1968 to 1982 and weathered the Malaise Era with poise. Even though power outputs were severely hit, the Corvette continued to soldier on as America's sports car, and somehow, Chevy managed to maintain ample performance credentials during those trying times. This 1974 Chevrolet Corvette is one of many survivors that's been well looked after and received a new paint job in 2019, we're told. With under 60,000 miles on the clock, it's a perfect entry to classic American sports cars or a fine addition to an existing collection.
This 1974 Chevrolet Corvette proudly presents itself in Elkhart Green, which isn't a common color but a striking one. The car looks absolutely stunning, replete with its pop-up headlamps, muscular flanks, white-striped tires, and dual circular rear lamp clusters. The twin targa, or T-tops, enable you to enjoy the wind in your hair and the sunshine flooding into the cabin whenever the mood strikes. Alternatively, you can engage in stargazing on clear nights while parked, of course. Inside, this 1974 Chevrolet Corvette offers comfortable accommodation for a driver and a passenger. The car has comprehensive instrumentation, a ventilation system, and a push-button radio as amenities. Behind the two seats lies a spacious cargo area that can easily accept several soft bags, making this 1974 Chevrolet Corvette an ideal road trip getaway machine.
The L48 under the hood of this 1974 Chevrolet Corvette should put out around 200hp and 270lb-ft, given that the Malaise Era had just come into the fray. The aftermarket exhaust further enhances the V8's rumble and roar as you wind it through the gears on the four-speed manual transmission. The current owner tells us that the car has received a new water pump, radiator, battery, alternator, and a recent oil change. The car also has front and rear independent suspension, front disc brakes, and rear drum brakes, which are power-assisted.
