We acquired this 1977 Corvette from the second owner whom has had the car since the early 80s. It originally was sold new in Michigan but spent most of its life in Oklahoma. This Corvette is a nice original "Survivor" car with much of the original paint and interior. The miles are 47,932 and are believed to be actual to this car. It does run and drive out nicely. This was a unique color and seldom seen on the 1977 models. This was also the last year to see any orange color on a Corvette until 2005. The body is straight and original and the doors close with ease. There has been some cosmetic things done to the car including all new exhaust system, new brake calipers, front wheel bearings replaced, new shocks, new Firestone tires, new rear carpeting, and some other miscellaneous parts. We are in the process of doing a cosmetic detailing of the engine refinishing the valve covers, air breather, underhood insulation, repainting the engine block and intake, refreshening of the exhaust manifolds, installing a new radiator, and a few other details such as a new oil pressure gauge as the original one has stopped working. Both the front and rear bumpers are original to this car and are not cracking. The paint shines up nicely but is not perfect as the car is 45 years old. The aluminum wheels have been polished up with new center caps and look nice. This Corvette also featured the optional luggage and roof panel carrier which was a one-year only 1977 option where the t-tops can be strapped onto the luggage rack and the car can be driven down the road to allow for more storage access behind the seats.

The exterior if the car for the most part is original including the paint. The overall appearance is very good and still has a nice luster. The bumpers match up good for a Survivor car and are not cracked or warped. The window glass is also in good shape and the headlights do work along with the windshield wipers. It is getting harder to find one that is original for the most part these days as many of these cars were driven on a daily basis and have deteriorated over the years.

The interior is in very good shape. The seats, dash pad, door panels, and most of the carpeting is original. The rear carpet has been replaced at one time and matches up good. The seats we cleaned and had the redyed and they look nice and fresh. This one is rare having the cloth inserts instead of all leather and that is correct and original. This had to be a special type order to do so. The dash pad and instruments all are in great shape and do not need any attention. Most all of the gauges work with the exception of the clock. The original AM/FM radio still does work. Overall a very nice original interior with minimal wear.

For the most part the engine and chassis are original. There have been some new parts such as the exhaust system due to age, new shocks, new brake calipers, rear u-joints, front wheel bearings repacked, etc. The engine compartment is currently being detailed and a new radiator is being installed. We will update the photos once that is completed. Items such as the fan blade, pulleys, air cleaner base and lid, will get powdercoated and will be show quality. The valve covers will also get refinished with new gaskets. New underhood insulation as well. This will be a car that will be nice and presentable, but not so perfect that you can't drive it.

The documentation on this Corvette includes the original dealer invoice, the original purchase agreement dated 10/20/77, previous owner title, odometer statement, owners manual, window sticker, and several receipts over the years on service and routine maintenance. This Corvette also has the original luggage and roof panel rack and both brackets and the strap to hold the t-tops on the rack are included. The original jack and lug wrench is still intact and a new spare tire will be included. The wheels on this car are the optional aluminum ones and have been polished out and a new set of Firestone tires have recently been installed.

On the engine block, intake manifold, and valve covers for the base L-48 engine.
