Description 1974 Chevrolet Corvette Convertible - Fully Loaded, Exceptional & Rare!!!

THIS IS TRULY A RARE & EXCEPTIONAL EXAMPLE!!!
 
Up for sale is a GORGEOUS 1974 Corvette "Stingray" Convertible (body-off restored ~10 years and only ~2,000 miles ago) with BOTH soft-top (black and in excellent condition) and factory auxiliary hard-top (rare and excellent with original Miglia Red lacquer factory paint!!).  Only 15% of Corvettes made in 1974 were convertibles.  But to find a convertible with factory air is also a rarity!  As many will agree, a fun/classic car should be a manual transmission and this Corvette has the highly desired factory "Muncie M20" 4-Speed/Wide-Ratio...which again is a rare find.  This Corvette has had 1 repaint with modern base coat/clear coat technology and shines beautifully.  You will be hard-pressed to find any noteworthy flaws in the finish.  Please take note that the "stance" on this Corvette is exceptional...which definitely is NOT the case on many C3's.  Importantly, the frame and bird-cage are rust-free & exceptional as this was a TN. car for most of its life.  The ORIGINAL interior is the highly desired BLACK DELUXE LEATHER (not vinyl) with original walnut wood accents and is in EXCELLENT CONDITION. The condition of this original interior is a testament to how well this care was taken care of and stored!  
 
* This car has 93,xxx miles on the clock but there is a good & pretty interesting story on the actual mileage of this car (said to be substantially LOWER than 93k).  This story is hard to deny when looking at the condition and originality of it.  The normal wear-and-tear one would expect at close to 100k miles on a C3 Corvette just does not show-up on this car!  
* This is a numbers matching vehicle all around and has not been modified or molested in any way.
* This Corvette drives straight, stops strong, no unusual shimmies or rattles...SOLID AS THEY COME IN FACTORY CONDITION!
* Options: PS, PB, PW, Factory A/C, Tilt & Telescope, Factory aux. hard-top, Factory AM/FM stereo radio (works perfectly). . .ALL WORK AS EXPECTED!
* This car is believed to have the original and desirable "Rochester Quadrajet" carb.
* Car runs cool over the long-haul and the oil pressure (even when hot) is the strongest that I have personally seen in a C3 Corvette.  Also, the engine compression was tested and is ideal!
* Vacuum system works excellent as the headlights are quick to go both up and down and in sync.
* The body-panel gaps are exceptional on this car!
* Windshield and Side-Window glass (Astro Ventilation) are all ORIGINAL to this car.
* This car is literally ready to go to the car show, cruises, etc.!  As original as this car is, it would present very well at classic car shows!  I feel/rate this Corvette is a "High Quality Driver" (2 minus or 3 plus).  In my opinion this is certainly not a standard quality driver.
* All gauges, including factory original clock (keeps perfect time as it was rebuilt w/modern quartz movement) work as they should.
* The Factory/Antique R-12 A/C (which blows strong & cold) and it still has the original "Frigidaire" compressor in it! 
* 350 Small Block "L-48" w/4 Speed Manual (Muncie M20) that runs and shifts like it is new.  Clutch  is nice and firm as it was serviced during restoration.
* Has only had 3 previous owners in 42 years, with one mature gentlemen in TN. owning it for many  of those years.  The car was stored covered and in a dry environment. . .the exceptional interior condition speaks to this fact!
* Engine compartment is gorgeous & clean and is very original all the way down to the in-tact smog equipment, master cylinder, manifolds, dual snorkel air-cleaner, A/C equipment and valve covers.  Heck, the oil-fill cap and fuel cap (has new seal) both appear to be original as well!
* The radial tires are like new with some of the side-nipples still in tact (not driven hard)
* Has the original owner's manual, copy of window sticker, spare tire and jack parts.
 
I could literally go on and on, but if you like what you see here, please reach out to me. I promise no disappointments or time wasting. This is an extremely original car with great owner history. It is only original once and this really is where the true value lies in this Corvette. If kept up correctly, you can enjoy this car with minimal to zero net investment. . .these C3's have held their values very solidly over the last handful of years and only become more rare and collectible as time moves on.  Thanks for looking!

* Car is sold as-is (no warranty offered or implied), where is (no shipping) * $500 deposit required within 24 hours of auction close
* Full Payment must be received and cleared within 5 days of auction close
