vehicle description

 

 

Seven Hills Motorcars is proud to offer this very striking and beautiful 1975 L82 Corvette in excellent condition and with only 77,145 original miles. This Corvette looks fantastic, runs great, and is an excellent driver. The car is totally solid with nice lines and no rust issues. This Corvette is verified as an original and correct L82 model by the fifth digit of the VIN. This car has a "T" in the fifth digit indicating it is an L82 while a base L48 has a "J" in the VIN.

The Medium Bright Blue Metallic over Silver Leather is a stunning and exceptionally rare color combination and looks great on the car. We have never had another corvette finished in these colors. Whenever someone visits our shop they always notice the color on this car and it always gets compliments. It is also the correct and original color scheme as verified by the codes on the trim tag, which is pictured below. This is an excellent opportunity to own a classic Corvette that is ready to be used and enjoyed at an unbeatable value. One could easily buy this car now and sell it for more than the purchase price in years to come as the market on C3 Corvettes is strong right now and on the rise. The low original mileage is verified not only by the condition of the car, but also the clear Ohio title, pictured below, showing the mileage as "Actual." Please peruse all of the photos, video, and other information below to get a true sense of how nice and clean this Corvette really is.

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 car 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 Medium Bright Blue Metallic exterior is in nice driver condition. As one can see in the photos the finish has a good gloss and deep shine. Both doors open and shut nicely. The aluminum are in beautiful condition with a brilliant finish and no curb rash. The BF Goodrich radial tires have about 80% tread left. There are a few blemishes visible in the a photos and a few that were too tiny to show up in pictures, but nothing else that is really noticeable from about five or ten feet away. As one can also see in the many photos of the underside of the car, it is very clean and this Corvette has absolutely NO RUST ISSUES. The frame is totally solid with no rust around the "key hole" area in front of the rear tire and I have seen no evidence of corrosion around the windshield, which are the two most notorious spots for rust on a C3 Corvette.

Window Date Codes

Please note that almost all of the glass on this Corvette is date coded and original as both pieces of door glass and the rear window predate the car's body build date of April 14, 1975 (G14). Original glass is a good indication that this car has had no major accident history and never sustained significant damage.

Driver: LI - "L" denotes March and "I" denotes 1975 meaning the driver's side window was made in March of 1975.

Passenger: XI - "X" denotes February and "I" denotes 1975 meaning the driver's side window was made in February of 1975.

Rear: LI - "L" denotes March and "I" denotes 1975 meaning the driver's side window was made in March of 1975.


Interior

The Silver Leather interior in this Corvette is in awesome condition. The seats are in excellent shape with no rips, split seams, or excessive wear. They are not overly worn in the typical area where the driver gets in and out. There is one very tiny spot on the drive's seat bottom, but as one can see in the photos it is not very noticable. The carpet is in great condition with no stains or holes. This includes the rear carpet, which is often neglected. The door panels are in good shape with no cracks. Both door pulls are solid and intact. The dash and console look good with no sun fading, there is some cracking on the right speaker grill. This Corvette has never been smoked in; there are no burns marks and no aroma of cigarettes. Corvette interiors from this era are not known to wear well and the excellent condition of this interior is a huge testament to the meticulous care and attention this car has received throughout its life and another great verification of the low original mileage.


Mechanical

This Corvette seems to be in good mechanical condition. The car starts right away every time and runs well. It drives great and feels nice on the road and at highway speeds. In the video below one can observe the car accelerating on the highway up to about 70mph, shifting through all the gears, braking to stoplight, and going through some curves. Please note that there are no vibrations or strange noises and the car performs quite well overall. Please also note that the car was started completely cold. It was not warmed up at all to make it seem to run better. The brakes are responsive and do not pull to one side or the other. The engine compartment is beautifully clean, detailed, and correct with the original air cleaner and finned aluminum valve covers that were exclusive to the L82 models.

The radio works as do all the exterior lights, horn, wipers, and even the key buzzer. The blower for the heater works on all speeds. All of the gauges work with the obvious exception of the clock. The vacuum system for the headlights works correctly. Also, the headlights go up properly with either the headlight switch or vacuum override switch. Their complete operation form both switches can be viewed in the video below. Not enough can be said as to how much of a pleasure it is to drive this car, especially with the T-tops out on a beautiful day.


Overall Condition

Overall, this 1975 L82 Corvette is in magnificent driver condition. The rare and high horsepower model Corvettes like this L82 always draw a great premium over the standard Corvette models. The originality, the beautiful and desirable original color combination, and the L82 make this car especially important and hard to duplicate. This Corvette always gets a ton of attention driving down the road. It is apparent that the vehicle has been well cared for by its previous owners. The prices of C3 Corvettes have increased considerably over the past several years. They are secure and wise investments for a collector. One could easily enjoy this vehicle for several years and sell it for more than the purchase price with minimal effort.

 

Thank you for looking and please do not hesitate to email or call with any questions.
