1976 Chevrolet Corvette

Affordable fun and Corvette don't always go together, ut this 1976 Corvette is a reasonably-priced icon. Everyone knows it when they see it, nd in beautiful dark green, obody's going to miss you coming or going. With a rare 4-speed manual gearbox, his one delivers solid V8 performance and a '70s cool factor that just can't be found anywhere else.It's OK, ou can admit it, know you turn to look every time one of these rolls past. Sure, hey have an unmistakable '70s groove going on, nd with all the images that it conjures up of disco music, ell bottoms, nd big hair, here's also the fact that in 1976, f you owned a Corvette, ou were The Man. Code 33 Dark Green wasn't as popular as silver and white in 1976, hich should tell you something about what was going on back then, ut today seeing one of these is like greeting an old friend. Good fiberglass suggests a clean, riginal car, nd the paint, hile professionally applied a few years ago, as a fantastic shine that is just fine for a car you're going to love driving. No cracks in the usual places, umper caps that match the bodywork (the rear is a fiberglass replacement), nd, ell, t's hard to go wrong with a swoopy Corvette, don't care which color's you favorite. Lift-off T-tops give it a great open-air experience, nd the headlights work properly with fresh vacuum lines feeding the motors, uring one of the biggest complaints C3 owners have about their rides.Code 192 black leather is this car's original choice, nd the interior looks awesome against the green paint, combination that probably wasn't popular in the '70s but looks surprisingly contemporary today. Replacement seat covers are correct in their pattern, lus matching door panels, nd a console that just looks too nice to be original all give it a very fresh look inside. Subtle woodgraining suggests that the Corvette was softening along with its buyers, ut the classic gauges, -spoke steering wheel, nd snug-fitting seats tell another story. A/C was not standard, ut enough people added it to the options list that it may as well have been, nd this car's system has been upgraded to R134a refrigerant and a recharge should bring it back to life. A modern AM/FM/cassette stereo was neatly integrated into the dash and feeds speakers behind the seats that sound great, ven over the rumble of the exhaust. Big news in 1976 was that horsepower was going back up, ith the base 350 cubic inch V8 finding another 15 horsepower for a total of 180. However, his one is a big upgrade, ith a 4-bolt main block filled with a bigger cam, allory ignition system, nd a big 4-barrel carburetor. It was installed about 10,000 miles ago and it certainly runs well enough to be a worthy long-distance cruiser. The engine bay is clean, ith recent additions that include a chrome alternator and master cylinder, s well as the finned valve covers and open-element air cleaner. The 4-speed snaps through the gears with authority and spins the stock rear end, o it's still a great highway cruiser. A newer Flowmaster exhaust system sounds right, nd the clean undercarriage should relieve you of any worries you had about rot or damage. Original Corvette aluminum wheels have been polished to a high shine and wrapped in 255/60/15 Goodyear radials.For big fun on a small budget, ou can't get more car for less money than a C3 Corvette.
