The end of an era and an interesting model year packed with history! This 1974 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray Convertible was offered during the oil embargo against the United States. Squeezing in just before gas prices and emissions took control of what we now consider the Muscle Car era. This Corvette was the last year to be offered without catalytic converters and run on leaded 91 octane fuel, equipped with true dual exhaust. Just shy of Corvette’s ten-year gap with no convertible model offered and the first model year to offer plastic Front and Rear Bumpers, more noticed by its 1-year-only split rear bumper. Of the 37,502 units built for 1974 just 5,474 of them left GM as a Convertible and an even smaller number of 2,612 left with a factory matching Hard-Top!
This specific Corvette left the factory in November of 73 as a 1974 Corvette Convertible equipped with the more desirable L82 250HP Engine mated to a Close Ratio 4-Speed Manual. This car was factory equipped with A31 Power Windows, Custom Interior Trim Package in 407 Silver Leather, C07 Auxiliary Hard-Top, C60 Factory Air, J50 Power Brakes, N41 Power Steering and AM/FM Radio Stereo. A truly stunning color combination of Mille Miglia Red on correct Silver Leather with White Soft Top or Optional Mille Miglia Hard-Top.
In approximately 2010 this 1974 Corvette received a truly beautiful “Complete Body-On Restoration” by THE VETTE SHOP of Pipersville, PA before remaining in a private collection for 10 years. This Corvette has only seen about 100 miles of use since its 2010 Restoration and shows to have never seen rain. Always stored indoors. Undercarriage displays as new and photographs do no justice to how simply clean and put together this car is from the bottom to the top. It reflects a “believed to be actual” 47,599 miles on the odometer. Copy of PA title prior to our purchase issued 04/23/2008 reflects 47,450 miles. It is equipped with a Period/Model Year correct 350 V8 and is finished stunningly under-hood. Featuring a New Soft Top, New Hard Top, New Paint, New Interior, New Suspension, New Tires, New Wheel Trim and SO much more!
This car displays beautifully! Starts – Runs – Drives – Stops as it should, all with ease. Everything from windows, gauges, power equipment etc. all seem to function correctly with no apparent flaws. A Corvette of this quality just a few years older would be entering the Six-Figure Dollar range with ease. You will not be disappointed to add this car to your collection!
