Description:
1976 Chevrolet Corvette Coupe By 1976, the United States economy was on the mend from the 1973–1975 global economic recession.  The recession, which had been caused in part by the 1973 oil crisis, had caused gas prices to soar which, in turn, had made automotive manufacturers begin re-evaluating the types of vehicles they were manufacturing.  Over 540,000 third generation Corvettes were built between 1968 and 1982 making the C3 generation the highest production Corvette ever and the most popular for the collector. This would be the last year, since its 1968 inception where a C3 generation car would have had the Stingray moniker on its body.  Maintaining the classic Stingray shape, although much smoother styling with its undulating hood, flying buttress B pillars, and rounded rear, this consignment presents itself in beautiful Bright Blue Metallic.  Purchased by our consignor from a friend who had owned the car for over 20 years after he bought it from the fabled Stoudt Auto Sales & Corvettes in Reading, PA.  This car is the definition of Coke bottle design, a very sexy undulatory design is like a centerfold lying on her side, has an all numbers matching drivetrain, leather interior, and of course my favorite Corvette backside with the round over look.  The stance is worth the price of admission! Exterior Deep end of the pool, very nice Bright Blue Metallic coats pristine fiberglass and neoprene on this garage kept curvaceous example.  A few areas of road rash are noted on the lowers of the body along with some notable chips on the pointed neoprene nose.  The iconic Stingray gills if you will, vent cool air into and out of the engine bay from directly behind the front wheel wells.  Brightwork is minimal but in good condition and shows up on the door handles, front glass frame, side view mirrors and rockers, which appears as a wide strip and is the next best thing to having side pipes.  The long long hood leads the way and it sports hidden headlights in front as well as a rear vented scoop.  The roof panels are removable and in lieu of being smoked, they are body matching blue.  You gotta love the flying buttress-esque B pillars framing the near vertical rear glass and we also note the rounded rear look with the circular tail lights are iconic in their design almost expected in a Corvette.  15-inch polished and slotted wheels are wrapped by older blackwall 215/75R15\'s all around.  Interior Some smoke gray vinyl and wood appliqué, along with minimal chrome trimmings cover the door panels.  Sleek thin styled high backed leather buckets show some slight folds, as leather tends to do with age, but there is also some seam separation noted on the driver\'s bucket at the bolster piping.  The center console has a nicely padded black leather armrest and this drives the eye forward to the shift lever lighter and temp wheels.  The deep set gauges in the swooping upward and outward dash are original, and appear as very clean.  Next to this driver\'s panel is a group of 5 instruments to help keep the pulse, and just below the center dash of this car is the factory AM/FM radio.  Behind the seats is the rear storage area covered in soiled gray carpeting, as are all the floors where the seats are and under the dash.  I have to comment on all the chromed surrounds, lettering on dials and levers and all over, I see none of it is chipped off.  This is a rare detail not often experienced on these cars of this year, so it WAS well taken care of. Drivetrain A lift forward of the scooped hood, and we see a numbers matching 350ci V8 in L48 form.  It has a 4-barrel carburetor feeding it and a numbers matching TH350 3-speed automatic transmission on back.  A 3.08 Positraction rear axle is spinning the rear tires.  All original...a real breath of fresh air.  (Which it mixes with the fossils and kicks you in the butt!) Undercarriage A surface rust only underside that has good structural stability with a light patina on the flooring and
