We’ve shifted so many Corvettes, we could possibly write a history book on America’s sweetheart sports car that’s been wowing enthusiastic petrolheads since 1953. Every generation brought something distinctive along, and has its own dedicated following. The third generation C3 had a relatively long production run from 1968 to 1982, and saw over 542,000 units shifted throughout its life. If a third-gen ‘Vette is your poison, here’s a nice 1977 Chevrolet Corvette from Illinois with just 27,600 miles on it as a sweet deal. This single-owner car was reportedly used mainly as a show car, and has been kept original and pristine, with the owner enthusiastically stating, “even the jack is polished”. Interested? Read on…
This 1977 Chevrolet Corvette’s design was inspired by the ‘Mako Shark’ concept car, the work of Larry Shinoda. Bill Mitchell was the chief stylist, and the result is this taut and muscular shape that this particular car shows off nicely with its Light Blue Metallic paintwork, augmented by the aluminum wheels wearing chunky Firestone S/S Radial tires that reportedly have less than 10,000 miles on them. Tinted windows add a dash of privacy as well as some relief from the sun on hot days. Cracking rubber trim lines have reportedly been replaced too. Furthermore, this car sports the desirable T-Top configuration with brackets on the luggage rack for the twin T-Tops, as well as a blue car cover. The interior is blue, with two blue cloth seats and original instrumentation. Even the original AM/FM stereo radio sits proudly in the center console. Sport mirrors and a tilt-and-telescopic steering column are present, as is cruise control. Seat covers are included, as well as two sets of floor mats, one for usage and one for show. Two ash trays are included as well, as the original is said to have started corroding.
This 1977 Chevrolet Corvette comes with its original 350ci L48 V8 motor coupled to an manual transmission, and putting out around 180hp thanks to the Seventies emissions regulations. There’s no catalytic converter, and a glasspack muffler is present. It’s also reported to have received rebuilt brakes and changed fluids. A heavy-duty battery has been installed for better electrical performance.
