corvette description

 
Seven Hills Motorcars is proud to offer this low mileage 1975 Corvette Convertible in superb condition.
  This car has just over 68,000 original miles.  This is also evidenced by the title showing the mileage to be "actual."  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. 

This car is numbers matching with the original motor.  It came off the assembly line in St. Louis in June of 1975.  This is verified by the VIN sequence, this car is after the last car in May and before the last car in June, the sticker on the driver's door showing "6/75," and also by the trim tag with the code "I16," meaning this car was produced on June 16, 1975. 

As a side note, this Corvette is not a dealer auction vehicle.  I hand pick each car after careful inspection.  My cars come from owners who expect their Corvette to go to someone that will give the vehicle the same care and attention as they did.  Please take the time to examine each picture I have provided.  I photograph each vehicle to the greatest extent so you can feel confident about bidding.  If you have a question about the Corvette, please feel free to give me a call.

  Exterior

The "Medium Saddle" exterior paint is in great driver condition.  As one can see in the photos, the finish has suburb gloss.  Often many 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. 

 

Interior

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 professional.

 

Mechanical

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 Condition

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.  Thank you for looking and please email or call with any questions.
