Seven Hills Motorcars is proud to offer this 1976 Corvette Stingray in excellent driver condition and priced to sell with only 50,625 original miles. This Stingray looks fantastic, runs great, and is an excellent driver. It is totally solid with great lines. The Corvette is finished in the beautiful and desirable color combination of Classic White (10) over Dark Brown Leather (722). This is the correct and original color combination verified by the codes on the trim tag pictured in this ad.

This is an excellent opportunity to own a wonderful classic Corvette Stingray 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 the years to come as the market on C3 Corvette is hot right now and on the rise. The low original mileage is supported not only by the condition of the car, but also the clear Ohio title, pictured in this ad, showing the mileage as, "Actual." Please peruse all of the photos, video, and information to get a true sense of how nice this Corvette really is.

The previous owner installed a very high performance, high power, built small block in the car. He said the engine was built by a very reputable race shop in Kentucky at a cost of over $6,000. The engine sounds great, makes a ton of power, and this Corvette is blisteringly fast. This is a more modern engine that will be more reliable and much more powerful than the original L48 V8.

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 Classic White exterior is in nice driver condition. As one can see in the photos, the paint has a terrific gloss and deep shine. Often Corvettes will have particularly chipped up front ends, this car does not. Both doors open and shut nicely. The Cragar chrome wheels are in excellent condition with a brilliant finish and no curb rash. The tires have plenty of tread left and are correctly sized 225/70R15. There are no major scratches, scrapes, or other imperfections that have been intentionally excluded from the photos. There are some small blemishes that were too faint to show up in the photos, but noting that is really noticeable from about five or ten feet away. There is a small crack in the corner of the windshield, as one can see in the photos it is not very noticeable. As one can see in the many photos of the underside of the car, it is very clean underneath. We have included specific photos of the areas most prone to rust to show how nice this car looks.

Window Date Codes

Please note almost all of the glass on this Corvette, both door windows and the rear window, are original as each piece predates the car's body build date of October 3, 1975 (C03). Original glass is a good indication that this car has had no major accident history and never sustained significant damage.

Driver's Window - YI - "Y" is October and "I" is 1975 so this window is original, made in October of 1975.

Passenger Window - AI - "A" is September and "I" is 1975 so this window is original, made in September of 1975.

Rear Window - II – The first "I" is June and the second "I" is 1975 so this window is original, made in June of 1975.

Interior

The Dark Brown interior in this Corvette is in outstanding original condition. The gauge faces are crisp and clean and the lenses are clear. The seats look just in person as they do in the photos with no rips, split seams, or excessive wear. Please note that these appear to be the original seats and skins, not some cheap aftermarket covers or replacements. The carpet is also in great condition with no stains or holes. The door panels are in great shape overall. The door pulls are solid and intact. The dash and console look nice with no cracks or sun fading. The spare is still with the. 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 original interior is a huge testament to the meticulous care and attention this car has received throughout the years.

Mechanical

This Corvette seems to be in good mechanical condition. As stated above, the car has a very high performance engine with a ton of power. The car runs well and idles smooth. The car drives nice and is smooth on the road and at highway speeds. In the video one can observe the car accelerating on the highway up to about 70mph, braking to stoplight, going through some curves, and shifting through all the gears. Please note that there are no strange noises or vibrations and the car performs quite well overall. There is no blue smoke when starting or driving the car. The brakes are responsive. The transmission shifts smoothly throughout the power band. The gauge shows that the engine makes great oil pressure. The car runs cool and does not overheat. This Corvette has plenty of power and is very fast. Also, the engine compartment is beautifully clean and detailed as one can see in the photos.

The wipers work as do all the exterior lights, interior lights, turn signals, indicators, dash lights, power windows, and horn, even the key buzzer works. The blower for the heater works on all speeds. All of the gauges work and even the clock runs. The vacuum system for the headlights works correctly. Also, the headlights go up correctly with either the headlight switch or vacuum override switch. There complete operation form both switches can be viewed in the video. The car drives like it may have a lower rear end gear. This car came from the factory with a/c; the previous owner removed the compressor when he installed the new engine. Not enough can be said as to how much of a pleasure it is to drive this car, especially with the extra power from the engine and the T-tops out on a beautiful day.

Overall Condition



Overall, this 1976 Corvette Stingray is in great condition and is an excellent driver. The high performance engine, the low miles, and the beautiful color combination make this car especially important and hard to duplicate. The prices of C3 Corvettes have increased drastically over the past years. This Corvette always gets a ton of attention driving down the road. It is very apparent that the vehicle has been well taken care of by its previous owners. The C3 Corvettes 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.
