More than 40 years later, it is harder and harder to find a survivor Corvette reportedly with less than 11,000 miles on the clock but we have one here at MotoeXotica Classic Cars.
This particular example was made in GMs Saint Louis, Missouri factory on October 21, 1975 and delivered to Markley Motors, Inc., a Chevrolet dealer in Danielson, Connecticut. This car left the assembly plant with the following options: gymkhana suspension (code FE7), power brakes (code J50), automatic transmission (code M40), tilttelescopic steering column (code N37), power steering (code N40), heavyduty battery (code UA1), map light (code UF1) and AM/FM stereo (code U58). The original owner purchased the car on November 15, 1975.
The cars Classic White (code 10) paint and trim are in overall great condition. . The cars glass panels are clear and intact while its lights are hazefree and intact.
The cars bodywork is straight and solid, the engine bay is tidy and the bumpers fit well to the body. This Corvette rolls on BFGoodrich Radial T/A tires, each one surrounding a Rally, or turbine style, wheel. The wheels look good while the tires are in very good order.
Under the forwardhinged hood is a L48 350 CID V8 engine with a Rochester Quadrajet fourbarrel carburetor and HighEnergy Ignition (HEI) bolted to a Turbo Hydramatic 350 threespeed automatic transmission. Driver convenience features included power steering, power fourwheel disc brakes,
Inside, the car has a unique leather upholstery color, bluegreen (code 322), that was only offered in 1976 and 1979. The bucket seats are in great condition, as is the black carpet beneath the drivers feet. The cars headliner also looks great.

Nineteen seventysix models featured steel floor panels shielding the catalytic converter exhaust. These steel floor panels weighed less than the previousfiberglassfloor and reduced interior noise levels. To further reduce cabin noise levels, cowl induction was dropped in favor of the air cleaner ducted over the radiator, picking up outside air from the front of the car, thus reducing wind turbulence at the base of the windshield. The hood was carried over, with its cowl vent grille and induction system opening becoming nonfunctional. The optional cast KelseyHayes aluminum wheels were finally made available, which reduced the unsprung weight of the car by 32pounds. Nearly 15 percent of the cars were ordered with the new wheels at a cost of $299. A standard steel rim spare was used. This was the last year for optional white striped tires, as 86 percent of the cars were being delivered with the optional white lettered tires.A new rear nameplate for the rear bumper cover was introduced, eliminating the individual Corvette letters used since 1968. An unwelcome change was the Vega GT fourspoke steering wheel, although its smaller diameter did provide extra room and eased entry/exit. The steering wheel, colorkeyed to the interior, continued on 1977 through 1979 models, limited to nontilt wheel cars only. GMs Freedom battery, a new sealed and maintenancefree unit, was now installed in all cars. The rear window defroster option was changed from the forcedair type of previous years to the new ElectroClear defogger, an inglass heated element type.Even without a convertible model, the Corvette still set new sales records.

The magazine ordered an L48 4speed for a 4,000mile road trip to Alaska.C&Dsummarized: The Corvette was a big hitwe expected and thoroughly enjoyed thatbut we were surprised at how well it withstood the ordeal...once we recovered from the trip we conceded that wed developed new respect for a car wed long regarded as something of a put on. In every sense of the word, our Yukon Corvette proved to betoughand wed have to say that even the production versions impressed us as coming closer to being real touring cars than we might ever have thought. Theres a lot more sincere ring now to our stock answer to the question, Why a Corvette?
