In 1975, the automotive industry went through major changes due to the use of lead fuel that caused serious health issues. Environmental laws changed and government decided that lead fuel would be phased out. Along with those changes, the director of high-performance Zora Arkus-Duntov retired. Under his leadership, Chevrolet quickly became one of the most successful manufacturers ever in the history of motor racing. Also introduced in 1975, was the catalytic converter, and so Corvette built the first model not to feature dual exhaust.
This is a great custom 75 Vette that has undergone just a few modifications. The exterior is the factory color Dark Red and the paint is fresh and professional with no visible flaws. It features a rear spoiler which, while not factory, it does add a sleek and cool look.
The black bucket seat console interior presents in excellent condition with no rips or tears. Dash is in terrific condition and features wood grain inserts on the instrument gauge panel that features Classic Instruments. Door panels have the wood grain inserts and in excellent condition as well.
Engine is the 350 CID with a cam and paired with a 700 R automatic transmission. Added were the Be Cool aluminum radiator (with 2 fans) and March serpentine system.
Options include power windows, power antenna, power steering, power brakes, and a Vintage Car AM/FM Corvette radio.
