The exterior of this “show car” has been customized with a variety of parts, including a custom Eckler's front end with exposed halogen dual headlights under clear covers, high-rise vented hood, and custom bullet-shaped taillights.

The exterior Brandywine Candy Apple color is a beautiful shade well-suited to the car's curvaceous body lines. Reflective highlights from the paint emphasize key design aspects including the hood bulge, the slightly rounded shape of the removable roof panels, and the flowing fenders. Subtle multi-tone pin-striping adds to the effect. Tasteful chrome trim is limited to the rocker-panel trim, windshield surround, the added side pipes, and rear-deck luggage carrier, all of which display beautifully maintained finishes. The previous owner had an appraisal done due to the cost of the $16,000 paint job added to this head turner.

Inside, the color theme is black. Black leather covering the contoured diamond stitched bucket seats has been properly maintained and shows only expected age-related creasing, but no damage. Hard-plastic black door panels include wood grain trim and lower carpet panels. Black cabin carpeting is protected by matching ”Lloyds” brand new carpet mats embroidered with the Corvette logo. The 4-spoke, black, telescoping sport steering wheel with crossed-flags center emblem frames the large 160-mph speedometer and 5,250-rpm-redline tachometer deeply set in the black padded dash. The five engine-monitoring gauges located on the center stack just above the retro Chevy cassette w/10 disk changer audio head unit in the factory-radio location. Extending rearward from the center stack, trimmed console includes aftermarket audio controls, the shift lever for the automatic transmission, power windows, an engine data-plate, and the handbrake lever. Custom stereo-speakers are located behind the seats.

Under the front-hinged hood, the 350-cubic-inch, L82 V8 commands a very clean and properly ordered engine bay. Surfaces are original and no performance modifications are noted. Viewed from below, the chassis is complete, straight, and undamaged. This has been a California car and no rust is present inside and out and has always been stored indoors and out of the elements.

Written up September 2018:

"The 1976 Corvette without a doubt was an up year for Corvette."

"It is popular opinion that the 1976 Corvette Stingray was the best-looking Corvette to date up to this point. Though there were few changes made, their impact was great. This is true design talent. The air-extractor vents were removed from the rear deck, along with the Astro-ventilation system. The cowl flap was also removed, as complaints had been heard that the assembly whistled loudly while driving, taking away from a positive Corvette driving experience. In its place was a new modified cowl induction, which improved both aesthetics and function. This is a perfect example of one of the many changes in Corvette history that gave them the reputation for innovative design addressing form and function simultaneously."

After a 4,000-mile road trip to Alaska, Car and Driver delivered their verdict on the reliability and road manners of '76 model: "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 be tough and 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."

Please call to arrange a time to come see this amazing looking show winner, and feel free to get in touch anytime by phone or email if you have questions.

This beautiful blue '76 Corvette Coupe is sure to draw compliments from neighbors, friends, and from fellow Corvette enthusiasts of all stripes. It's just as certain to be a satisfying partner on road trips, short and long, for years to come.
