The "Medium Saddle" exterior paint is in great driver
condition. As one can see in the photos, the finish
has suburb gloss.
corvettes will have particularly chipped up front ends,
this car does not. The underside of the front
end is in great condition as evidenced by the photos.
This part of the car is very fragile and a testament to the
meticulous care this car has received throughout it's life.
Unlike many vintage Corvettes that are repainted to a more
desirable color, this car actually came from the factory in
"Medium Saddle" as indicated by the paint code, 67, found on
the trim pad. There are some small blemishes in the
paint around the car that were too small to show up in the
photos, but nothing that is really noticeable from
five feet away. The front and rear bumpers have been
replaced with the more desirable fiberglass units that will
not crack and fade like their urethane counterparts and will
hold up much better over time. The car looks in person
just as it does in the photos.
The Saddle interior of the Corvette
is also in excellent condition. The interior is in its
original color, code 65, as indicated by the trim pad on the
"A" pillar. The seats do not have any rips or tears.
They show very little wear. The driver’s seat is not worn in
the typical places, such as where the driver’s belt-line may
wear the seat bolsters. The carpet is in very good condition
as well with no holes or stains. The door panels are in
great condition and unlike many Corvettes of this age, they
fit very well and tight to the door. The convertible
top latches and closes easily and the rear window has not
yellowed or fogged up. The dash is not split or sun
faded at all. The console and center gauges have not
been molested and fit very well with little wear and no
cracks or other damage.
The aftermarket radio works and sounds much better than the
stock radio ever did and the installation looks very
This car drives very well. It
is tight and smooth on the road and at highway speeds.
There are no strange noises or vibrations.
Everything on this car works as it should with the exception
of the clock. All of the gauges work, the
headlights go up and down with both the headlight switch and
the override switch, all of the interior and exterior lights
work, even all of the heater, defroster, and fan controls
work as well. The 3 Speed transmission shifts
smoothly. The car brakes powerfully and straight.
As with many older cars with carburetors, this car is cold
blooded. The car starts right away and idles well.
This car is an absolute pleasure to drive, especially with
the top down. There are no rust issues with this car.
The frame is in good condition and I have seen no evidence
of corrosion around the windshield and "A" pillar.
Overall the Corvette is in great
condition. This time of year in this economic
situation is about the best time ever to buy a car like
this. 1975 Corvette Convertible will always draw a
premium over other Corvettes from the mid and late 70's due
to their rarity and desirability. Matching numbers is
an unconditional must for any truly collectible Corvette.
This body style has increased in price rapidly over the past
few years. This car can be driven and enjoyed while
continuing to appreciate in value.
