1974 Chevrolet Corvette StingrayFor sale is my 1974 Corvette Stingray with only 71,500+ miles on the odometer. This is a real big block car, housing the mighty 454 between the fenders. The car starts and drives as it should. The motor has plenty of power and the Turbo 400 transmission has nice crisp shifts. The steering is tight and the car handles very well. It has an older repaint that is still very nice. The only body and paint issue is a crack in the front bumper and some paint cracking in the rear bumper. I was going to have these fixed, but decided to let the next owner do it. This car has the plastic bumpers that come original in 1974. When I was going to have them fixed the body shop asked if I wanted the original poly bumpers or have fiberglassones. To buy new bumpers have them painted and installed was $1,800. I have adjusted the asking price significantly because of this. I feel the new owner can decide if they want it original or fiberglass. Don't get me wrong, This car looks great as is and is very usable without having the bumpers redone.The dash has not been chopped and is complete to include the original AM/FM radio. Everything works except the clock. When turning on the heat or A/C you may need to lightly tap the counsel, but it comes on quickly. Windshieldwipers and gauges all work as they should. Rear window defrost works as well. The tilt steeringis a bit loose, but nothing that affects the drive-ability. Tilt and telescopingwheel works. Yes, this car has Air Conditioning that blows cold. This car has has T-Tops with leather interior and power windows.I'm by no means an expert, but the only thing I know of that is not original under the hood is it has aftermarket valve covers and plug wires.There is a lot of new on this car to include:New tires BF Goodrich Radial TANew Rear trailing armsNew Rear mono-leafspringNew Rear brakes to include calipers2 new interior door panels(only one was needed but bought both. The extra one will be included with the sale)New dual exhaust (also comes with tuned exhaustpipes that were on for only a short time. They sounded amazing, but were a bit load for the wife)New front bearings and brakesNew rear sway bar and mounts
This car gets the looks. I haven't taken it out once without someone giving me a thumbsup. people gravitate to it everywhere I go. Just getting gas can be like a car show with people coming over and asking questions. I have given many rides and it is awesometo see the smiles on the faces of people who dream of owning one. The 454 emblems on the hood are a huge attractant for the gear-headsand the beautifulyellow color brings over the ladies.
If you are looking at this post, you probablyalready know the collect-abilityof this car. There will be no more big block Corvettesbuilt. This is it! It may be nice to just have a Vette, but trust me when I tell you there's little that compares to firing up a big block 454. If two corvettesare side by side and one is a big block, guess which one the people are gathered around.
I'm asking $21,500 which I believe is a very fair price considering what I have into it, but I'm willing to consider offers. No harm throwing an offer at me, if I'm in the right mood I may take it. The winning bidder will deposit $250.00 in my PayPal account within 24 hours. This lets me know the bidder is serious. The bidder and I will then contact each other on how to pay the remainder. I will not accept PayPal for the entire amount unless bidder wants to pay the PayPal fees. PayPal fees are too high for that amount. I want all payment correspondenceto go throughEbay to protect both the buyer and myself. If you want more information on the car please send me a message through Ebay and I will contact you. If you send a phone number, I will call. I don't want to put my number on this post so scammerscan get it.
