Rare Corvette Orange Exterior with Buckskin Leather Interior. Only 36,653
Miles showing on the odometer and a real nice original survivor car
With the paint in excellent condition for a 40 year old car. Super tight driving
And goes down the road like a new 77 model. The interior shows little to no wear with the exception of the drivers side door panel where you rest your arm has a couple small cracks but nothing serious. The dash pad is excellent with no cracks or repairs, seats and carpet are all original and in nice condition, along with all of the instruments and needles on the faces all look very nice and fresh. All original date coded window glass still in the car. The brakes are good, transmission shifts smoothly, and performs well.
It is getting harder to find nice low mileage examples of this era. The body lines on the car are excellent for a 1977 model. Good original frame as well. Included with the car is the original jack and lug wrench, t-top storage brackets for mounting on luggage rack, and the original spare steel rally wheel. The spare tire is a new replacement. The car does have all original Rally style wheels with original trim rings and center caps also in excellent condition. The tires on the car are all matching Michelin brand size P225 70R15. Most everything on the car still in working order and most all labels such as on the door jambs are all still visible. Engine compartment is basically untouched and original.

KEY HIGHLIGHTS TO THE 1977 MODEL YEAR:
Last year for the straight back window glass
Last year for the 160 MPH Speedometer
Last year for a full size spare tire and wheel on a corvette
Engine paint changed from orange to blue in early production
Leather Seats became standard
The previous deluxe leather interior option became standard in 1977
A newly redesigned leather wrapped steering wheel was introduced
The alarm actuator was moved from the driver’s side fender to the door lock itself in late 1977 production
The luggage rack became a factory installed option and not dealer installed as all of the other previous years. This was also unique in fact as there were brackets included when the option was ordered to place to tops onto the luggage rack when driving to free up more rear storage behind the seats.
A new console held heater and a/c controls and accepted new standard Delco radios due to its increased depth.
A new steering column positioned the steering wheel two inches closer to the instrument panel to provide more of an “arms out” driving position, and easier entry and exit.
The outer windshield trim was painted instead of bright aluminum in 1977.
The rearview mirror became mounted on the inside windshield itself.
There were several other refinements making the 1977 model year one of the best driving and sought after C3 models today.
