1975 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray For Sale

Bought in 2016 by me in Los Angeles, a friend spent a year searching for me to find this car so that I could drive it over 3,000 miles in two weeks across the USA.

Having completed the journey to New York I brought her home to the UK, arriving in July 2016, MOT due next July and being 1975 the car is free tax and no emissions test to worry about.

All taxes, duties and registration completed and paid, car has V5 showing 1975 build date and confirming matching numbers engine which was rebuilt by previous owner.

Car is a 350 auto, 5.7 litres of power and gearbox is absolutely bang on, has power steering and brakes, tilt and telescopic steering wheel and has air con fitted but not working (frankly I just take the roof off, but it is on modern refrigerant and everything is there to get it regassed)

Before leaving for the journey we rebuilt the entire brake system, with new master cylinder, booster, calipers all round, pads, plus upgraded slotted drilled vented discs all round, I have a whole pile of receipts and paperwork for the car including original brochure and workshop manuals for the new owner.

The car is exceptionally original, with original mechanical fan at the front of the engine bay and California Smog pump still in place, as well as original catalytic converter exhaust, all could be easily removed if preferred, but I like to keep cars original wherever possible.

Paint was redone a few years ago, the colour is not the original metallic blue however this is visible in one or two places inside the nose cone and behind door cards, interior is original colour but was redone when the car was restored a few years ago, no rips or damage to seats, but one or two bits of trim could probably do with tidying up if you wanted to get it to A1.

There are, as with any car this low to the ground, a couple of stonechips, being fibreglass these are not an issue other than the appearance, please contact me and I can send many more detailed pictures if required. The car looks, as you can see in the pictures, very good from a few paces away, but up close there are a couple of marks that a mobile specialist could deal with easily.

I have recently had the car inspected by a local corvette specialist who gave it a very positive report, and who serious buyers are welcome to talk to about condition of the hard to see bits. We discussed at length some surface rust at the side of the windscreen on the passenger side, this has been carefully inspected and there is no structural concern but buyers may want to look at this in a few years time to get the car to top condition.

Mechanically the car is absolutely rock solid, I would drive it another 3,000 miles tomorrow, happy to take buyers out in the car to see what it can do and can deliver to you once sale agreed.

Please contact me with any questions and if you would like more pictures of it or any specific areas you would like to see on the car. I'd love to keep her but just don't have enough storage to keep her and I'm planning another adventure this year and need to free up cash.
