1975 Stingray Corvette V8 350 — Its an amazing ride I wouldnt do anything differently to this car. The car is all original and it drives like a dream. I only take it out on the weekends and when the weather is really really nice outside.

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Great Coke Bottle Corvette — I have a 75 Corvette convertible and just love it. It is as solid and reliable as anything. Despite having a relatively low horsepower rating (a combination of new rating system and smog and other compliance measures)the car flies. It has mnore than enough power for me and is a real headturner. It has electronic ignition and was the first of the unleaded petrol Corvettes.

One Word Fantastic, Best All Round Affordable Supercar — I have just purchased an L82 4 speed, having owned a 78 & 79 in the past ( both auto) this is the best of the three. They look timeless ( park next to a Ferrari, Lamborghini, maserati) & they still look at the old C3 shark the best looking car in the world period. It has everything looks to die for a big V8 & yet easy to work on & although not cheap comparitivly speaking reasonable costs to maintain.If i won the lottery I would still be driving a C3

Pros

It's a Corvette... HELLO!! lol

Cons

Age, deterioration

75 'vette — This car does need some work. For its age, I suppose it's in decent shape. It does have t-tops, which leak in the rain, it lacks a firewall between the engine compartment and the footspace in the 'cockpit'. It's temperamental, needs a mag starter... the engine heats the regular starter too much, and it has to cool down again before it will fire up. It's missing a motor in the driver's side window, and the seal around the windshield is heavily degraded. The vacuum canisters for opening the headlights are shot. She dogtracks like crazy on the open road. But you know what? This is the most amazing car I've ever driven. It was made for a purpose, and here over thirty years later, I can still tell. It is simple compared to today's new cars, but it has more spirit. This baby gets up and roars, and I LOVE it.

Pros

very nice soft cruising ride! fast car! seats lay back nicely, the luxury classic muscle car here

Cons

too low with aftermarket pipes, 2-seater, all fiberglass body = rides wherever wind blows, rear joints are less stable that sways more than other classics at higher speeds, no trunk

Stingray L-82 All-original Except Pipes. 55k Orig. Miles — 1975 Corvette Stingray Coupe , T-Tops , auto trans. , Original 8 in. Rallyes , 350 L-82 Engine with 55,000 original miles , Headers , new high performance distributer and cables, new Edelbrock alluminum intake, high performane Edelbrock carb. , Performance Cam , new fuel pump, new water pump, new front wheel bearings, high performance air filter, new interior (rare original silver color), new floor mats, painted a couple years ago (excellent exterior), new chrome side pipes, new brake booster and master cylinder. Runs Great (new carb still might need some adjustment b/c only couple months old) but runs excellent on the high end and good to great on the low. I just think the carb could offer more to the performance of the car if it was adjusted again.

Need To Make Some Improvements — love the overall look, motor sounds great and shifts smoothly, nice ride on the highway. i have to fix the signals, lights, wipers, passenger window, and it definitely needs a new paint job. i am pleased with the price and overall experience so far.

The Bad Ass — Performance- has a olsmobile 350 that flies. Build Quality- it needed a few repairs, but its finished now. Appearance- its a t-top convertable, paint is yellow. Cost of ownership- gas=9mpg, about 2 grand fun factor- its an old drag car that still will pop a wheelie everytime i hit on it.

Pros

A real kick to drive and serious head turner.

Cons

Windsheild frame likes to rust and it's a bear to repair or replace.

35

Fun Factor — Performance - Handles well but a gutless wonder. Build Quality - Start digging into the fiberglass work and you have to ask: Was GM outsourcing to China in 1975? Appearance - Dead Sexy... Cost of Ownership - Right!!! We'll talk later :-) Fun Factor - permanent grease under the finger nails and bloody knuckles makes for a great weekend. Baby getting a 572 with side pipes and my 6 year old boy is right there helping me (he keeps all the important bolts), can't ask for any more than that.

No Power, Bad Qc @ Factory These Yearsmakes For Worst C3.still They Stop And Corner Good. — A 1975 C3 is a Bad example of a good (past) car. If you can find a cheap, clean, 75 with less than 100k, they are good drivers if you keep them up. You gotta love those Coke-bottle girlish obvious female inspired lines even with the urathane bumpers, it's still a Stingray.
