1974 Chevrolet Corvette Roadster
1974 Chevrolet Corvette Roadster
The arrival of the 1974 Chevy Corvette occurred during an abysmal period in automotive history. The period in question actually began in October 1973 when OAPEC, (the Arab members of OPEC) plus Egypt, Syria, and Tunisia proclaimed an oil embargo against the United States. Long lines for gas sprung up nationwide, and the era of the large engine muscle car was coming to an end. Instead of pure power, companies focused on conveniences, and smooth ride, and this year Corvette is exemplary of the times.
For consignment a nice unrestored original with a consigner stated mere 19,250 original miles! Items of interest are the A/C has been converted to 134A, and it comes in a not often found Dark Green Metallic exterior, convertible, and a hardtop to match the exterior.
One has to love the design on this curvaceous Corvette. From its sting ray-esque nose, flared fenders, low slung panels, a chrome rocker, and rounded off rear this is definitely my favorite Corvette design, right next to the 63 Split window. All this fiberglass is bathed in a Dark Metallic Green, not an often-seen color on a Corvette. The black convertible is in very nice condition with the rear window showing clear plastic. The removable matching hardtop is very nice as well, and all original. Deep chromed dish wheels are wrapped by Eagle GT radials with white raised letters. It doesn't get any better than this original.
A sea of Black leather buckets, carpet, dash, and door panels, with just a few areas of added woodgrain make up the original interior. Original deeply sunk in round gauges front the steering wheel, center of dash, and even AC is installed (needs charged) in the console controlled by horizontal wheels for temperature…very modern! The 4-speed manual transmission shifter is here as well. A flip of the convertible top storage area behind the buckets, reveals a 10-Disc CD player with remote. Also, some serious woofers and tweeters in custom boxes will rock your world.
3970010 1969-1979 350ci V8…numbers matching puts out a propertied 195hp V0928CKZ-Flint Sept 29 Built 350 4BBL. 14S404980 is stamped on this block. A single 4-barrel feeds fuel and air, and it puts power back to a 4-speed Muncie M21 Transmission.
A few areas of surface rust, but nothing out of the ordinary for a car from 1974. Nice patina, solid frame and rockers areas of rustproofing are seen sprayed overall. 4-wheel power disc brakes are on all 4 corners.
An original unrestored number matching Corvette all in its 1974 glory! Fiberglass is good, not perfect, but its unrestored…ORIGINAL!
