Chevrolet’s Corvette is definitely one of America’s automotive sweethearts. Children aspire to own them when they can buy their own car and adults who have dreamt of owning one work hard towards achieving their goal. What’s even more special is a Corvette that’s been in the same family for 25 years, as with this 1976 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray 350ci Manual from Georgia which has got a decent 78,178 miles on the clock. It’s a show car too, as the seller reports that it’s always been shown at Carlisle car shows, and used to be a part of the Corvette Club in Rochester New York. Reportedly to be mostly original, it’s an appealing proposition for those wishing to fulfill their Corvette dreams.
This 1976 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray 350ci Manual is from the third generation which ran between 1968 and 1982. The third generation saw quite a bit of muscular styling, as it was designed based on a concept by Larry Shinoda called the Mako Shark. This example shows off that muscular styling with its red paintwork that’s been reportedly lightly touched up about 20 years ago. It’s got the requisite ‘Corvette’, ‘Stingray’ and ‘L48’ badging, and rolls on silver rims wrapped in period-correct tall profile tires. It’s also got those oh-so-desirable pop-up headlamps. Open the frameless door and step aboard into the tan interior which offers seating for two occupants. It’s got wood accents and a white cueball-tipped shifter for the manual transmission. It’s also reported to have factory AC installed, and sports a modern Kenwood AM/FM/CD head unit for your tunes.
You could have your third-generation Corvette with over fifteen engine options over its lifestyle, but they were all V8s – nothing less would do for Chevrolet’s flagship sports car after all. This 1976 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray 350ci Manual packs a 350ci (5.7L) V8 that sends around 180hp to the rear wheels via a four-speed manual transmission. The seller reports that the engine was chromed as his father used to show the car off at local shows. Power brakes with disc brakes up front and power steering are present as well. The seller notes that the engine and transmission have never been rebuilt.
