Description

Crown is excited to welcome this 1976 C3 Chevrolet Corvette! “The Corvette is America's only true production sports car.” Thus starts Chevrolet's sales brochure for the '76-model Corvette, and this statement was certainly as true as it had-or has-ever been. In those days, the domestic car industry was under pressure on all fronts. Stiffer safety and emissions regulations were coming from the government on a regular basis. Public desire for better fuel mileage (thanks to the Arab oil embargo of 1973 and '74) brought competition from overseas, and prompted domestic manufacturers to put most of their development efforts into their own fuel-efficient cars. The great muscle cars of the late '60s and early '70s were indeed shadows of their former selves.

Even though more people bought '76 Corvettes than any previous model, it's tempting, in retrospect, to dismiss these cars as dim stars in the Corvette cosmos. In the context of the times, however, Corvette was still at the top of the performance heap. An article in the very first issue of VETTE, titled "The Stingray Lives," makes both points: For 1976 the Corvette Stingray is more sophisticated, more luxurious and, according to government standards, is safer and "cleaner" than previous models.

There were two different rear bumper logos used during the model run, one using recessed lettering, and a later, larger emblem that wasn't recessed. This Corvette is the latter, with a larger emblem that is not recessed. And the gas cap emblem was a '76-only item. Perhaps most importantly, though, is that the '76 Corvette was the last to wear the hallowed "Stingray" moniker on its fenders.

This car is perfect for twisty mountain roads, car shows, and serious joy riding. You are going to want THIS Corvette in your vehicle collection. Don't pass this one up!
