about the dealership
Seven Hills Motorcars is Cincinnati's premier Corvette specialist and a licensed and registered auto dealer by the State of Ohio.  With many years of focused experience I specialize in 1957 to 1982 Corvettes.  There is no other dealership that can better meet your needs if you would like to buy, sell, or just find out more information about your Corvette.  This is simply a one man operation, and this is not my full time employment.  I do it because I enjoy it.  I am a collector and enthusiast and therefore look for cars that excite me.  I do not purchase at dealer auctions; each car is hand picked by me because it is special or rare to me and because I like it.

vehicle description

 

 

Seven Hills Motorcars is exceptionally proud to offer this beautiful 1975 Corvette convertible in spectacular condition.  The car has been restored; it is essentially 100% turn key and ready to be driven.  The car is finished in of the most attractive and handsome color combinations available for a convertible, Dark Red Metallic over black.  The car always turns heads and gets a TON of attention going down the road.  This Corvette looks amazing and is a very nice driver; the car has received compliments wherever I have driven it.

This car was treated to a high quality professional "frame on" mechanical and cosmetic restoration in 1992 and has been used only about 9,400 miles since.  The work was completed by Caledonia Classic Cars who put a  beautiful paintjob on the car and according to the previous owner the suspension and mechanicals were sorted and the engine and transmission were rebuilt as well.  The car was actually featured on the back of their catalog when it was finished.  A copy of that catalog is pictured below and included with the car.  The previous owner purchased the car not long after it was restored and kept it until my purchase this year.  He also completed a diligent maintenance and repair log with receipts, which is pictured below as well.  The owners manual and what looks like a reproduction window sticker are also included with the car. 

1975 was a very special year for Corvette, it was the last year of the C3 body style in which a convertible model was offered.  Only 4,629 convertibles were made that year, which is why the 1975 Corvette Convertible is one of the most desirable models in the entire production run of C3 Corvettes.  1975 was also the first year Corvettes featured High Energy Ignition (HEI) with no mechanical points; a dramatic improvement over previous designs. 

As a side note, this Corvette is not a dealer auction vehicle.  We hand pick each car after careful inspection.  Our Corvettes come from owners who expect their cars to go to someone that will give the vehicle the same care and attention as they did.  We invite and encourage you to examine the car in person or have the car inspected.  Please take the time to scrutinize each picture.  We photograph each vehicle to the greatest extent so you can feel confident about your purchase.  If you have a question about the Corvette, just give us a call.

Exterior

The Dark Red Metallic exterior is in great driver condition.  As one can see in the photos the finish has deep dazzling gloss and smooth glass-like finish.  The underside of the front end, a very fragile and vulnerable area, is in great condition as evidenced by the photos.  The convertible top looks great and operates easily.  There was a small tear in the top that was repaired.  I have specifically taken a photo of the area on the left side of the top to show how unnoticeable it is.  There are no major imperfections that have been excluded from the photos.  There are some faint spots and touch-ups in the paint that were too small to show up in photos, but nothing that is really noticeable from five or ten feet away.  This car features aluminum wheels, which are in amazingly beautiful condition with absolutely no curb rash and an excellent shine. The frame is totally solid with no rust and I have seen no evidence of corrosion around the windshield.  This car has absolutely no rust issues. 

The Corvette looks just as good in person as it does in the photos.


Interior

The black interior of the Corvette is also in fabulous condition.  The seats look just in person just as they do in the photos with no excessive wear.  The carpet is in nice condition with no rips, tears, or stains.  This includes the rear carpet which is often neglected.  The door panels are in great shape and unlike many Corvettes of this age, they fit well and tight to the door.  The dash is not cracked or sun faded at all.  The rear window is clear with no yellowing.  Corvette interiors are not known to wear well and the excellent condition of this interior is a testament to the meticulous care this car has received throughout the years.  Please note that detail items, such as the pulls for the rear compartment doors, have not been pulled off on this car.  This car has not been smoked in; there are no burn marks or aroma whatsoever. 


Mechanical

This car is in awesome mechanical condition, it has no issues and is ready to be enjoyed.  The car starts right away every time, runs well, and idles well.  There is no smoke when starting or driving the car.  It is an exceptional driver that is tight on the road and at highway speeds.  There are no strange noises or vibrations.  The transmission shifts smoothly.  Also, the engine compartment is beautifully clean and detailed as one can see in the photos.  Keep in mind this car does have manual brakes.  The car does have a slight tick of what sounds like an exhaust leak that usually goes away then the car warms up.  The horn works, as do, the headlights, headlight override vacuum switch, all gauges with the obvious exception of the clock, blower, and wipers.  Not enough can be said as to how much of a pleasure it is to drive this car, especially with top down on a beautiful day.


Overall
Condition

Overall this 1975 Corvette convertible is in marvelous shape.  The attention to detail, cleanliness, the beautiful and desirable color combo, and the excellent condition make this car especially desirable and collectible.  Cars like this are the Barrett Jackson stars of the future.  The 1975 convertible is the right choice as an automotive investment in the short and long term; it is undoubtedly one of the most sound and secure ventures one could make into the Corvette market.  One could enjoy this vehicle for several years and sell it for more than your purchase price.
