This flamboyant bright Sunflower Yellow Corvette hails from the final year that chrome bumpers were fitted front and rear on C3 models, making it one of the more desirable of the 1968 to 1982 third generation breed. In addition, this example also boasts the biggest 7440cc (454ci) V8 engine available for Corvettes of its year. The car came to the UK when new, being registered here in June 1972, and had a brief brush with celebrity when it was featured in in the June 1976 issue of Motor Sport magazine ‑ a copy of which is included with the paperwork. Maintained by specialist garages throughout its life, including the well‑known and reputable Claremont Corvette, by 2007 the Corvette had only covered 64,545 miles. It was at that point that the current owner acquired it; his custodianship has seen less than 3000 miles covered over 14 years, bringing the present mileage up to 67,245. This is warranted by the large quantity of maintenance and service invoices  stretching back to the 1970s, including 38 MoT certificates, 30 tax discs, and around £15,000 in bills since 2007. The well‑presented interior is the original saddle leather in a very rich shade of brown, with little wear apparent, and the car is fitted with automatic transmission, power steering, adjustable steering column, electric windows and removeable roof panels.
