This 1974 Chevrolet Corvette is the most clever of resto-mods, s it takes an affordable C3 'Vette and adds late-model tech like an L98 TPI motor, 5-speed gearbox, nd gorgeous ruby red paint that was the hallmark of the anniversary models. If you want great looks with performance to match, his 'Vette is an awesome choice.The shape is familiar but we suspect you're going to find a lot of new stuff to love on this Corvette. The modern paint looks great on the vintage shape, nd the gold highlights of the Anniversary Red make the crisp bodywork look especially well done. Fit and finish are excellent for a C3, ith headlight doors that sit flush, ood gaps all around, nd doors that close with a reassuring solidity. They resisted the urge to update the look beyond the paint and instead focused on getting the basics right. Both front and rear end caps fit well and are the same color as the rest of the car, he stainless has been polished, nd they kept the chrome rack on the rear deck to hold the T-tops when you're going alfresco. Heck, hey even kept the 1974 split rear bumper, hich was a one-year-only feature. The important thing is that this car is every bit as nice as it looks in photos.Code 416 Saddle leather is how this one came from the factory and that's what it's wearing today, nd the combination is just beautiful. The seats, arpets, oor panels, nd steering wheel were all renewed during the restoration but still look quite stock, hich is this car's best feature: it doesn't look modified. It was also a factory 4-speed car, o swapping in a 5-speed manual transmission was a no-brainer and keeps the interior looking just like it should, lthough there's a new shift pattern on the console. You'll note a newer AM/FM/CD/iPod stereo with remote in the center of the stack and speakers behind the seats, ut that's really the only visible modification. The A/C works like it should, t's got power windows, tilt/telescope wheel, nd pretty much delivers on the promises made by the C3 bodywork. New floor mats, nug-fitting T-tops, nd a surprising lack of squeaks and rattles mean this is a car you could drive cross-country without a second thought.The engine is a 350 cubic inch V8, etter known as the L98 from a C4 Corvette and using Tuned Port Injection. Only the most reliable machine ever devised by man, he engine is torquey, mooth, nd utterly reliable. It starts easily with a turn of the key, dles smoothly even when it's cold, nd does all the other wonderful things that fuel injection promises. It also gets decent fuel economy with the 5-speed gearbox and despite the trick intake manifold, t's a neat fit in the C3 engine bay. In fact, t looks very OEM sitting there and all the power accessories work like they should. A throaty dual exhaust system still gives you the pure Corvette soundtrack and it's quite clean underneath with upgrades like a monoleaf rear spring to make it feel more agile. Standard Rally wheels keep the low-profile look and wear fat 235/60/15 Firestone radials at all four corners.Like the looks of a C4 Corvette but the sleepy performance gets you down?
