1977 Corvette

Code correct Black exterior, code correct Red cloth interior.  Numbers matching 180hp 350ci engine, automatic transmission, posi rear-end.  Unlike many project cars, this REALLY is a great running and driving Vette in very original condition.  Being a 1977, this was one of the first Corvettes to be factory painted Black again, as that color disappeared as an option in 1970.  Furthermore, this car has the extremely rare cloth interior, finished in Red, which nicely compliments the Black exterior.  Needless to say, this would be the perfect color combination for a Falcons or Georgia Bulldogs fan!  Showing a body assembly date of July 12, 1977, the paint on this car has seen better days; not appearing to have been a quality job to start with, the clearcoat has baked off in many areas, and the remaining areas show little to no shine.  There does not appear to be any body or fiberglass damage to this 1977 Corvette.  This car was ordered with a luggage rack, which is now showing some light surface rust.  All 4 taillights on this car show some cracking; weatherstripping looks to be all original, and is quite brittle and rotting away.  A set of 1967 style 7 inch rally wheels are installed, which are in good condition, showing a few spots of surface rust.  All 4 trim rings appear to be in good shape with no dings; there are some gouges on the center caps.  A set of Goodyear Eagle GT II raised white letter tires are present, and show no dry-rot, with roughly 70% tread remaining.  Chrome door handles look to be original and show the common lazy return spring issue, but function very well and do not show any pitting or fading.  The interior of this 1977 Corvette is very original, with cloth seats showing worn foam and someading, but no rips or tears.  Door panels are faded with rough lower carpet areas, and also show a few small cracks.  Driver's interior door handle is missing.  Main carpet looks to be original, and is faded and matted with 30 years of normal wear.  Steering wheel currently wears a stitch-on cover; expect the factory leather underneath to be in poor to fair condition.  Dash pad shows some minor fading, but no cracks.  Center console shows signs of previous attached accessories, with a few drilled holes, some adhesive residue, and several large cracks in the rearward section.  With the exception of the clock and the tachometer, the gauges appear to be working.  Needles show some fading, although the lenses are relatively clear.  A vintage off-brand AM/FM cassette stereo now resides where the original AM/FM stereo sat.  The previous owner of this car claims that the engine was rebuilt within the last year, at which time a mild camshaft was installed.  Other claimed recent work includes a new radiator and radiator support.  This car starts right up and idles smooth; original engine block shows an assembly date of June 13, 1977.  Many upgrades have been made under the hood, including an Edelbrock Performer intake manifold, Edelbrock carburetor, a set of coated longtube headers, MSD billet distributor, MSD ignition coil, MSD ignition box, chrome Edelbrock air cleaner, chrome valve covers, and a set of Taylor 8MM ignition wires.  Although it is all there and hooked up, the a/c system currently has a leak and does not blow cold.  This 1977 Corvette appears to have a solid frame and birdcage area with a little light surface rust in a few spots.  This is a great running and driving project car that needs mostly cosmetics, so don't expect this one to last!  Factory features include air conditioning, tilt-n-tele, rear defrost, sport mirrors, power windows, power steering, power brakes, luggage and roof panel rack, AM/FM radio.  

Does this Vette run and drive?  Yes!  In fact, the gentleman who we purchased the car from drove it up to us from Florida.  There is currently a leak in the power steering system; otherwise, this car runs and drives great with no major mechanical issues.  Headlights work when the manual vacuum override is used.  

Why is this a Fixer-Upper?  Although this is a great driver, the obvious cosmetic issues are keeping this one out of our regular inventory.  We would recommend paint, weatherstripping, taillights, cor panels, a center console, seat covers with foam, a new steering wheel, and some underhood detailing to make this a show-quality Vette.
