Here’s a 1976 Corvette Well Worth Admiring
I’m betting that even with all the criticism Corvette takes for some of those low-powered models produced during the mid-’70s, you’ll still find a fair share of fans here for this one.
Then again, this 1976 C3, affectionately known as “Lola,” isn’t your average ‘70s model ‘Vette. For starters, the coupe, owned by Joyce and Jim Marshall, is painted in a rich cherry red that’s as striking as any exterior color you’ll find on a car.
Under the hood is a 2014 LS3 Chevrolet Performance engine with a Billet Specialties Tru Trac serpentine belt system and custom engine covers by BH Custom Designs, one of many transformations this Corvette has undergone, as highlighted in a Super Chevy report.
Other mods include a heavily-modified C5 suspension upgrade, new fiberglass body panels, and a one-off-custom grille. But it’s the work that’s been put inside the Corvette that really leaves you breathless, most noticeably the balance in executing a contemporary design that still retains the classic appeal of the car.
