1974 Chevrolet Corvette

1974 was a turning point of sorts for the storied Corvette: it was the last year of the "big block" engine, the last year without catalytic converters (and therefore the last of the true dual exhaust), the first of the Gymkhana suspension, and the first year with rubber bumpers.  
The engine was either a 350ci V8, with 195 hp, or a 350ci V8, with 250 hp (L-82). But the wicked 454ci was offered as an option.  Being a true 70's machine, seats were available in both vinyl and leather. This one rocks!!!
