We just acquired this 1975 Corvette out of Northwest Arkansas. I was told that the car had been in the family for many years up until the owners passing. The Corvette is a nice presentable one with an older repaint that is nice driver quality. Both the front and rear bumpers have been replaced and upgraded to fiberglass ones. These will last much longer than the old original urethane ones. The body lines are nice and the glass is all original to the car. The Corvette was an original Bright Blue color along with the Black interior code trim. The previous owner did have the engine rebuilt and is matching numbers. The brake calipers and emergency brake have been also replaced. I personally drove the car back from Arkansas with no issues and performed well. The transmission shifts nicely and drives down the road at 70 mph with no problems. Headlights, wipers, turn signals, back up lamps all still are in working condition. Even the air compressor has been replaced and does still blow air through the vents. The original optional rear window defroster still operates! Most everything works on the car with the exception of the original radio and tachometer. Speedometer and odometer do work and the mileage shows 58,573, which is believed to be actual, but cannot be guaranteed as I do not have any previous records or documentation to back that up.
This Corvette does have a nice original frame and birdcage. It definitely has been kept inside and out of the elements. No undercoating underneath and the engine compartment is clean and somewhat detailed. It does still have an original spare tire compartment in great shape and a spare tire and wheel. Also the original jack is still intact with the car. The engine bay does appear to be mostly original except for the fan blade. The original air cleaner, ignition shielding are still on the car which are usually missing or changed out. We have serviced the car and changed the grease in the rear end. We also replaced two of the BF/Goodrich tires and the other two are in great shape. The wheels are an original set of Rallys with nice trim rings and center caps that are originals as well. The tire size is P255/60R15 white lettered.
The overall interior in the Corvette is very presentable. The carpet has been replaced as well as the seat covers which are in leather. The dash pad is original and still in great shape with no obvious cracks. The seat belts are intact and even the buzzer still works. The instruments are original and do show some age, but still look good. Original AM/FM radio still intact but will need to be rebuilt as it currently is not working. If we have the car long enough we will address any issues like that and correct, and adjust the price accordingly. The center console is still in presentable shape and those gauges do function with the exception of the clock. The original door panels are still on the car and do show some age as well and could be replaced if you wanted to take the car to the next level. This Corvette is a great entry level one that is priced to sell!
