1976 Corvette Coupe - #'s Matching 350 V8 Factory Air

If you're in the market for a solid third generation Corvette that you can enjoy on weekends and cruise to the local car shows, we have your car. One of only 3,389 cars built in yellow for the 1976 model year, this restored Stingray comes complete with its original numbers matching L48 350 V8 engine. Reasonably priced and ready to hit the road tomorrow, it's the perfect t - top cruiser for taking your Sunday drives to a whole new level.

This Stingray's contoured fiberglass body is covered in a glossy coat of GM code 56 Bright Yellow that has been buffed to a bright shine and looks great. Given their fiberglass construction, curved bodies and age, vintage Corvettes are difficult restorations and it's relatively simple to tell if the cars have seen any major repairs. Judging by how well this Stingrays straight body panels align it likely hasn't seen anything more than sanding and paint work, and it presents as well today in its original paint scheme as when it rolled out of the factory 43 years ago.

Tilt this cars red hood forward and you'll find its original L48 350 that carries a correct 3970010 casting number, a matching 16S437832 partial VIN and a correct L48 automatic specific CKX suffix stamp. The first thing you'll notice is a black topped open element air cleaner which is housed in a satin black base and receives air from both the engine bay and a subtle cowl induction hood scoop. Under that air cleaner, a Rochester Quadrajet carburetor sends fuel from fuel lines into a correct intake that is color matched to the cars Chevrolet Orange engine block. On either side of that intake, Chevy Orange valve covers look great and feature a breather and oil cap. Below the valve covers, correct factory exhaust manifolds send gases into a true dual exhaust system that is devoid of the cars original emissions equipment. Behind the carburetor, you'll find a distributor that is covered in factory chrome shielding, and in front of the engine, a correct Frigidaire AC compressor sits behind a correct radiator and a correct fan. On the right side of the fire wall, a correct Harrison air conditioning system blows cool air into the cockpit, and on the left side of the fire wall a like-new master cylinder supplies the cars power brakes. Reliable and appealing, this Corvettes engine bay presents well and its small block Chevy engine takes off smoothly and has plenty of power.

Inside the car, a correct 192 black bucket leather interior is focused around great looking seats that have just enough break-in time to be exceptionally comfortable. Below the seats, like-new black carpet runs from under the dash to the cargo hold and is protected by cool carpeted floor mats with colorful C3 Corvette Stingray logos. In front of the seats, the black dash wears a padded top that hasn't spent much time at all in the hot summer sun and a correct passenger's side map pocket. In front of the driver a large round speedometer and a factory tachometer sit behind a correct satin black vinyl rimmed steering wheel that is attached to a tilt column and features a C3 Corvette cross flag on its horn button. At the center of the dash, gauges for the cars vitals sit above a correct AM/FM push button radio and rotating dials for the cars climate control system. Along with the cars shifter, those climate control dials are housed in a nice looking wood applique that sits in front of console mounted chrome switches for the cars power windows. At the sides of the seats, great looking door panels feature a combination of stainless trim and bright wood applique around chrome door handles with small fully detailed C3 Corvette emblems and correct twist style door locks.

Underneath the car you'll find a solid chassis below clean floor pans. Behind the stout 350, a reliable automatic transmission sends power to the ground through what appears to be the cars highway friendly 3.08 rear end. Holding that drivetrain in is the cars original double A-arm front and independent rear suspension. As Chevrolets off the line offering, this 1976 Corvette came factory equipped with power steering and four wheel disc power brakes, and exhaust is handled by a dual system which includes a correct factory replacement muffler. At the corners of the car, 15 inch rally wheels wear derby style Chevrolet center caps and fresh 225/70 Uniroyal Tiger Paw radials. For a 43 year old car, the underside on this Corvette are surprisingly clean and looks exactly how you would expect a reliable street car to look.

This 1976 Corvette Stingray offers a ton of style and performance for very reasonable money. It's a highly desirable car that features a good looking bright yellow on black Corvette color combination, its original engine and t - tops. If you're in the market for a reliable Corvette Stingray that will provide endless fun on the highway and get you celebrity attention in the parking lot, this is your car. Call today!
