1975 Chevrolet Corvette1 of only 4,629 - Last of the C3 Convertibles!Thanks for reviewing my 1975 Corvette Convertible 4 Speed. I have owned the car for two years and according to my wife, I have one too many Corvettes...I have two in college, so it's hard to justify keeping both cars. I have receipts for all the work I did to get the car back on the road and I have a three ring binder with the previous owner information and receipts from it's history dating back to the late 90's. As far as I can tell, the car was bought new from JKJ Chevrolet in Virginia and has never left the DelMarVa area as all the other owners were from Virginia or Maryland, including myself. A factory Assembly Instruction Manual (AIM) will also come with the car. This car has a had a repaint in 1979 Corvette Dark Green (Code 58) prior to my ownership. The original trim tag shows the car to be 65 (White exterior) with 10L (Medium Saddle Vinyl).Highlights:Brakes redone in 2016True dual exhaust done in 2016New top in 2016New BF Goodrich RWL tires in 2016Seat frames and tracks repaired in 2017New ComfortWeave vinyl seat covers and foam from Al Knoch in 2017New trailing arms in 2017New spring in 2017Rebuilt 1979 differential in 2017New NOS Power steering pump, Control Valve by Lonestar and new hosesNew ClutchMany other receipts as well
Exterior highlights:Decent, driver quality paint (10 footer). Done prior to my ownership, shows some small drips in hood.Small crack in rear, lower passenger quarter behind wheel (not noticeable unless looking for it).Scuff on front passenger lower quarter.Luggage rack is showing some rustTop is excellent as seen from photos and videos
Interior Highlights:Seats are excellent and were redone at Carlisle Spring 2017 show by Al KnochCarpet is older redo by a previous owner (7 out of 10?)Door panels and dash do not have any cracks. Door panels could use new window feltsRubber weatherstripping is newer and in great shape.Battery/Jack/Storage cubby doors and frame have a crack, could do with a redo.Crappy aftermarket stereo unit and the dash speakers work, but need replacing.
Mechanical Highlights:Numbers match engine does not smoke and is very tight (84,000) miles, idles smoothly and runs out strongNumber match transmission was recently serviced when clutch was replaced and shifts very smoothlyDifferential is a rebuilt 1979 unit (installed 2017) with hardened stub axles (1975 owners will know how important this is!).Brand new trailing arms and suspension components/bushings/sombrero bushings, etc.All new greaseless Spicer U-joints on halfshafts and driveshaftTrue dual exhaust with AIR pump deleteOriginal carburetor in great operating shapeNew alternator (I have the original date coded in a box)Headlight system has been redone with new actuators and vacuum lines as neededAll gauges work including clock!Car runs cool all day long
Option Highlights:Factory air (blows cold, but is weak)Power steeringManual brakes (new rubber and steel lines in rear)Tilt/TelescopePower windows (work great)Map lightLuggage Rack
This car is a great driver/cruiser and is pretty spirited with the dual exhaust and AIR pump removed. Never abused and adult owned, drive and maintained.Wix oil filter with Brad Penn high zinc oil in my changes.
Car is safe, reliable and a real stunner. I have videos of the operation of the lights, windows and a walk around on my Youtube channel: Highlander1732
Happy to answer any questions or send any additional photos.
