1974 Corvette

Pearl White exterior, Saddle leather interior.  Numbers matching 195hp 350ci engine, automatic transmission, si rear-end.  This '74 Vette is in need of some TLC, but has some serious potential.  This car was assembled on August 20, 1973, with paint code 80L and interior code 416.  The paint is older, and has cracked and faded in a few areas.  The body of this car is very straight, although there are some breaks in the front clip which are visible when the hood is up.  8 inch wide Corvette rally wheels are mounted, and have been painted black.  Center caps and trim rings are in good condition, and radial white letter tires are present, with no dry-rot and about 70% tread.  Door weatherstripping is currently missing; chrome door handles look to be original and are in good overall condition and function with no issues.  Window tint with custom graphics was applied some time ago and is now peeling in a few areas.  Taillights show a few normal cracks, and a large rear wing has been added as well.  The rear bumper looks to be a recent reproduction piece, and has not yet been painted.  Glass is in good condition, save for a chip in the driver's side of the windshield.  The interior of this car is mostly complete.  Seat covers and foam have rotted, and the door panels are missing a few trim pieces and show several cracks and holes.  The dash pad is mostly straight, save for one crack on the driver's side; center console is warped and not properly installed.  Steering wheel currently wears a rim cover, and the horn button is missing most of its paint.  Carpet is loop style, and is rotted, worn, and missing large sections.  Kick panels are broken as well.  A vintage Pioneer cassette deck has been installed, and does not appear to have cut into the dash.  The main gauge cluster is cracked, although the gauges are still in place.  GM seatbelts are still in place as well.  The original numbers matching engine shows assembly date August 13, 1973.  Quadrajet carburetor shows stamp number 17081292, and is mounted to the correct GM intake.  Many upgrades have been made to this car, including a set of Hooker Super Comp longtube headers with sidepipes, a chrome water outlet, a chrome Holley air cleaner, and a reliable GM HEI distributor.  A/C compressor is currently missing.  This is car is typical of a northern Vette, and shows some frame and birdcage rust.  Factory features include power steering, power brakes, air conditioning, deluxe interior, tilt-n-tele.  

Does this Vette run and drive?  Yes!  The gentleman that we purchased the car from drove it in to us.  Although it does not run particularly smooth, it does run, and it will stop and turn under its own power.  However, expect some moderate mechanical work to make this

Why is this car a Fixer-Upper?  This car has many reasons why it is a fixer-upper; it does not show its original colors, has aftermarket body parts, and does not have what we consider to be a solid Southern rust-free frame.  Like many Corvettes that have not been maintained, the headlights do not work.  Additionally, most of the hard-to-find correct underhood parts have been either removed or replaced by aftermarket parts.  Most of the air conditioning system is missing as well. Nearly every interior component on this car will need to be replaced to make it a nice car.  In short, this is a project for someone who really wants to get their hands dirty, but wants to have a true feeling of accomplishment once this Vette is returned to her former beauty.
