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.

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.

Pros

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

Cons

Age, deterioration

65

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.

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

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.

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.

Absolutely nothing

Friend's Stingray — The 427 Small Block V8 is a marvel of automotive engineering. The perfect upkeep since it was purchased brand new from the dealer made the car a perfect show car. This also happens to be my favorite incarnation of the Corvette.

Entry Level Corvette — Nice entry Level Corvette. I went with black Imron and had the Pewter leather all power options. Had a shift kit automatic trans. Add a crate motor or a stroker but keep it if you do Can easily exceed actual value Vette parts are not cheap. Check the frame carefully for rust rot.
