1974 Corvette - 454, 4 Speed Manual, No Options


A quick post...

This is an interesting Corvette. 1974 was the last year you could order the 454ci V8 in the C3 Corvette. It produced 275 HP. That was enough to move the Corvette to 60 MPH in 6.4 seconds. Only 15% of the 1974 Corvettes were ordered with the 454.

This car has a 4 speed manual transmission. According to the seller only 800 1974 Corvettes in total (with all engines) were ordered with a 4 speed. I can't verify that, but given the overall number of C3 Corvettes I see with automatics, I'd say that's a correct figure.

This car also has no options. It has manual windows and no A/C. Whoever ordered this car originally was looking for a sports car, not a boulevard cruiser.

This car has "been in dry storage for years." Some work has been done to it. The seller does not say what else, if anything, needs to be done.
