1977 Chevrolet Corvette Gateway Classic Cars #1219
For sale in our Chicago showroom is this unique 1977 Chevrolet Corvette. What makes this Corvette unique? Im glad you asked! While most Corvettes of this era are powered by the somewhat lethargic L-82 making 205 horsepower, or the base L-48 making a painfully low 165 horsepower, this example has received a bit of a special treatment. In 2016, the original L-48 engine was pulled to be completely rebuilt from oil pan to carb. The result is an estimated 420 horsepower pushing through the 3-speed automatic transmission. This is how the Corvette should have left the factory! The exhaust gives just the slightest hint that something more is going on under the hood, but ride out the RPMs just one time and youll be hooked on that sound! In an effort to preserve what the car was born as, little else was changed on the car; the interior is completely original with the only exception being the center console gauges, which were replaced due to failed original gauges. The factory wheels still sit tucked under the wheel openings, and a newer battery keeps all the electronics juiced up. Plenty of care was given to keep this classic looking good, and it shows. The car was sparingly driven in the rain, and has never seen salt or snow, as it was stored in the winter. Always noted as a styling peak with its muscular fenders and coke-bottle shape, this C3 has the go to back up the show. Options include: Air-Conditioning, AM/FM/CD player, T-tops, Cruise Control, Power Brakes, Power Steering, Tilt Wheel, Seat Belts, Leather Interior, radial Tires, and Rally Wheels.
