Description:

1974 Chevrolet Corvette

With a numbers-matching LS4 big block, his 1974 Corvette coupe represents the end of an era. It was the final year for the mighty 454 and the beginning of the plastic bumper cars, ith the chrome rear bumpers finally being eliminated. Powerful, un, nd relatively inexpensive, he '74s are perhaps the biggest bang for your buck in the Corvette hobby and are your invitation to some of the best car events around.Even though it began as a Silver Mist car, lack always looks good on a Corvette, mphasizing the long, ow profile and dramatic curves of the "Coke bottle" fenders. Refinished in 1990, verall it's a clean driver that can be used without worries and still gets appreciative looks at the local cruise night, nd it looks far better than it has any right to after all these years. The fiberglass is in good condition and shows few signs of age, nd no issues in the typical trouble spots around the headlight doors and rear C-pillars. There's a pinstripe highlighting each fender, rguably the C3's most distinctive feature, nd it has the effect of giving this one an upscale look. This one also features body-colored T-tops, hich many enthusiasts prefer, nd the only giveaway to the performance under the hood is a small 454 badge on the sides of the hood dome. Make no mistake, his is a potent car, ven today.Inside, hat's unusual code 407 silver leather interior in impressive condition. The seats are supple and comfortable, nd show very little wear and definitely no rips or tears in the leather. The interior was completely removed and it was lined with sound deadener material, o it's quiet and cool inside and then new carpets and door panels were installed to make it look crisp. You'll also note that this car offers such options as a tilt/telescope steering column and the original AM/FM stereo radio remains in the dash and still pulls in stations loud and clear. For a true open air experience, ull the T-tops off and enjoy the Corvette as it was meant to be enjoyed and the car comes with a never-used Eckler's T-top suitcase for protection. You'll have a hard time wiping the grin off your face once you get a taste of the big block's 395 pounds of torque. The quick-witted TH400 3-speed automatic transmission is the perfect companion, ith gear ratios that make the most of the LS4's wide torque curve. Sometime in the 1980s, he original 3.08 gear was replaced with a 3.70 out back and that means this sucker leaps off the line. Obviously detailed several years ago, he engine bay shows well with Chevy Orange paint on the engine block, chrome open-element air cleaner, nd Holley finned valve covers to add a little under-hood flash. Power steering and power disc brakes were popular options and operate as they should. Underneath, here are long-tube headers and a new exhaust system, ebuilt brakes, nd fresh shocks installed just this year. It's ready to go, earing a fresh set of 225/70/15 BFGoodrich T/A radials on classic Cragar wheels.This is a great Corvette that can be driven and enjoyed immediately, nd you just won't find more performance for less money anywhere.
