Description for Chevrolet Corvette 1976

Jacksonville Auto Museum is proud to present to you this unique car. We are relocating and remodeling, so we are trying to liquidate some of our inventory.

Little Bit of History

TheChevrolet Corvette (C3)is asports carthat was produced byChevroletfor the 1968 through 1982model years. Engines and chassis components were mostly carried over from theprevious generation, but the body and interior were new. It set new sales records with 53,807 produced for the 1979 model year.The C3 is the third generation of the Chevrolet Corvette, while the 1969 through 1976 models mark the second generation of theCorvette Stingray.

1976 models featured steel floor panels shielding the catalytic converter exhaust. These steel floor panels weighed less than the previousfiberglassfloor and reduced interior noise levels. Horsepower rose to 180hp (134kW) for the base L-48 engine; 210hp (157kW) for the optional L-82. 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 non-functional. The optional cast aluminum wheels were finally made available, which reduced the unsprung weight of the car by 32pounds. Nearly 15% 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% of the cars were being delivered with the optional white lettered tires.[12]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" 4-spoke steering wheel, although its smaller diameter did provide extra room and eased entry/exit. The steering wheel, color-keyed to the interior, continued on 1977 through 1979 models, limited to non-tilt wheel cars only. GM's "Freedom" battery, a new sealed and maintenance-free unit, was now installed in all cars.[12]The rear window defroster option was changed from the forced-air type of previous years to the new "Electro-Clear" defogger, an in-glass heated element type.[12]Even without a convertible model, the Corvette still set new sales records.

Car and Driverrecorded 6.8second 0-60 times in both L-48 and L-82 4-speed equipped 1976 Corvettes. The magazine ordered an L-48 4-speed for a 4,000-mile (6,400km) road trip to Alaska.C&Dsummarized: "The Corvette was a big hit–we expected and thoroughly enjoyed that–but we were surprised at how well it withstood the ordeal...once we recovered from the trip we conceded that we'd developed new respect for a car we'd long regarded as something of a put on. In every sense of the word, our Yukon Corvette proved to betoughand we'd have to say that even the production versions impressed us as coming closer to being real touring cars than we might ever have thought. There's a lot more sincere ring now to our stock answer to the question, Why a Corvette?"
