Vehicle Story

This unmodified 1974 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray convertible is presented as a 59,111-original-mile muscle car powered by a numbers-matching and recently serviced L82 350ci V8. It comes equipped with a Turbo Hydra-matic 3-speed automatic transmission that sends power to the ground through a set of Rally wheels on BFGoodrich radial tires. Equipment includes disc brakes, a tilt steering column, power windows, and a radio. Finished in Medium Blue with a white cloth retractable top over a Silver leather interior, this C3 Corvette is now offered with a clear Nevada title in the seller’s name.

Building on the engineering and success of prior Corvette generations, the third-generation model debuted in 1968 with a design language derived from a concept car called the Mako Shark II. Chevrolet offered it in convertible and coupe body styles with fiberglass composite panels. By the mid-1970s, the Corvette had evolved into a more touring-oriented sports car. Design updates for the 1974 model year included urethane front and rear bumpers in place of the prior chrome units. This low-mileage Corvette convertible from that year wears Medium Blue (22L) paint capped off by a white cloth retractable top. The exterior features quad retractable headlamps, vented front fenders, bright rocker moldings, and a dual exhaust system. The seller notes that there is a one-inch tear in the convertible top.

Steel 15-inch Rally wheels with polished trim rings and center caps are wrapped in BFGoodrich Radial T/A raised-white-letter tires.

The two-seat interior is fitted with Silver leather high-back bucket seats, matched to the door panels, dash, and console. The cockpit has simulated woodgrain accents on the console and door panels. Additional features include map pockets, lap belts, floor mats, a tilt-adjustable steering column, power windows, and an AM/FM radio. The seller states that the interior shows some moderate wear consistent with age and exposure to the sun and the elements over the years.

Instrumentation comes in the form of a 160-mph speedometer, 7K-rpm tachometer, an analog clock, and auxiliary gauges for the fuel level, coolant temperature, oil pressure, and voltage. The five-digit mechanical odometer reads 59,111 miles, which the seller asserts is a true reading.

The numbers-matching 350ci L82 V8 received a recent tune-up per the seller and is said to be mechanically sound at this time. Power is directed to the rear wheels via a Turbo-Hydramatic 3-speed automatic transmission. The last six digits on the engine block stamp match the last six digits of the VIN number, as shown in the gallery to the right.

The underside of the car and the dual mufflers and exhaust outlets are shown in the photo carousel to the right. Stopping power comes from power-assisted disc brakes.

@TommyG – Thank you for the reply, good luck selling it but I have to say that it concerns me that the car is titled in Nevada and still has a "valid" Indiana plate. I did not know you can have a car titled in one state and registered in another. ...

Actually it is not uncommon. Title, Registration and Insurance (and inspections, etc.) are really independent of each other. Although the requirements of each effectively connect them. (Like you must have insurance where it is located for it to be registered there). And if it is for resale or not road use, plates and registration really not a need. Consider - all leased cars are owned by the leasing company - which can be anywhere. Yet they are (commonly) registered where they are kept.

I will clarify the car has a valid Clean / Clear Title in my name in the state of Nevada. I bought the car out of Indiana and did not plate the car in Nevada as I was not driving it much and now I have it for sale and the tag showed not expired. It is quite common for someone to sell a car with a tag that has not expired yet. The Indiana tags will be removed off the car and the title is what is the legal proof of ownership. There is nothing to be concerned about. Thank you for your interest.

@65dodge – Will it make the drive from Vegas to Austin? ...

Yes I am confident that this 1974 Corvette would make the trip as the car has just had a major tune up, oil change, plugs, points, timing etc. and runs good. I would maybe not push to hard in extreme Hot weather. Other than that I believe it would make it
