An interested buyer would probably like to test drive the car with you before having to purchase it. Try to put yourself in the buyer’s position. It looks really nice and cared for. Cool Vette IMO!

I guess like most people I would Prefer a 68-72 because of the Bumpers but I must say , I love this Vette ! Unfortunately I'm a Couple more years away from getting my Dream car ... a C3 Vette ... I would definitely take your Vette in a Heartbeat ! It's obvious that you've taken great care of it because the 20 year restoration still looks pretty fresh . Would someone be able to Fly in and Drive home in your opinion ? Say from DFW to Tennessee ? Thanks for your time and Good Luck .... and If it's still around in a year or 2 I'll holler at you !! LOL

Thanks for your interest. That would be quite the drive in a C3 4 speed with low gears. The furthest I have driven it is about 3 hours. It runs good and would make the trip but I would pay the money to ship it. The motor only has about 15k on it.

Also, when I state no free rides that means only serious buyers will be afforded a ride and drive. Thanks

Knowing what I know about Corvettes now a year and a half after getting and fixing my '79, the asking price is very, very reasonable for the condition! I would jump on this if I was in the market. It is very a beautiful car - the right buyer is out there, for sure.

I Love this answer much more than something like " Oh Ya , I'm not afraid to drive across the country tomorrow " ... much more realistic and Honest ! I like this Car enough to where I'm trying to figure a few things out ... You'll probably have it sold before I could do anything , but I have found out that there's a pretty cheap Direct Flight to DFW from TYS .... I'd have to look at something first .... not trying to tease and it may not work out , and my bet is someone will see this Vette just like I do within a week or 2 , but I am looking into the possibility . You don't have any more pics do you ? Any of the UnderCarriage ? Thanks for your time !

Thanks for the comments guys! I was thinking of re- posting some pictures after Christmas. These really don’t do it justice as it was from an iPhone. I will include some under carriage. I did not have it listed but would show a new fuel tank and clean tire carrier. Not really a show car underside but clean for the most part, with new x pipe and polished magna flows. I do have a local guy who is pretty serious but getting funds together. Seriously, I would let my son have it for cheap if he had a garage to keep it. I hate to let it go after almost 20 years, but it’s just not driven much and I don’t want to sit.

Pretty 1974. Great pics, OP. Wish I were looking for a '74.
