Cincy Classic Cars is proud to offer this 1976 Custom Corvette show car which is fully restored with great love from its former owners with well over $20,000 in build receipts. It was restored from 2013/2014 including amazing new paint, a mostly restored interior, and completely new drive line and rebuilt suspension. This was a local car show favorite and the previous owners earned numerous trophies with this vette. The 383 stoker crate engine boasts 437 HP and 460 peak torque, see dyno sheets pictured below. Its truly stunning in every way and the restoration still looks fresh which is a testament to the meticulous care this car has received. This is an excellent driving car and we drove it home almost 100 miles to our shop in Cincinnati with zero issues and it performed incredibly well and was a true pleasure to drive.
The attention grabbing paint work on this vette is stunning in person and was tastefully finished. The painted on flames look terrific and garner so much attention anytime you take this Corvette out for a spin. The paint is in great shape overall and the frame and bird cage is very rust free. The aftermarket wheels and tires fit nicely into the overall theme of this spectacular Corvette. The rims look brand new and the tires have great tread left.
The one piece side pipe/header exhaust sounds great and looks awesome on the Vette. All the emblems are in great condition as well. The windows have been tinted and the glass around this vette is in excellent shape.
The black leather interior is in great overall condition. The seat covers and foam are newer and were professionally installed and look new in every way. Carpet is in great overall condition with no major stains or holes. The dash and bezels are all in good condition with no cracks or fading. The original door panels still look great and both door pulls are in tact. The stereo works but is older and could used replaced if so desired.
Everything works including the aftermarket gauges installed outside of the clock. The stereo, wipers, horn, power windows, blinkers, lights all work. The headlights go up and down as they are supposed to and work very well.
This corvette runs and drives as good as any muscle car I have ever driven. It has plenty of grunt and power and is really fast but also drives incredibly well on the highway. Drives strait down the road and does not float or vibrate and the steering has been rebuilt and is very responsive. Over $2000 was spent on suspension upgrades and it handles extremely well. The 383 stroker crate engine cost $3695 and has around 2000 miles on it. Included dyno sheets proves it produces 437 HP and 460 peak torque. The street fighter transmission cost $1260 and performs flawlessly with the added stall converter. This vette comes with a new distributor and wires/plugs, new Edelbrock Performer intake, New Holley 750 Ultra Double Pumper Carb., and an aluminum performance Radiator. New brakes all around were installed at a cost of $1981 and they work very well. Newer one piece side pipe/header exhaust was installed at a cost of $1910 and looks and sounds amazing. New belts, hoses, clamps, brackets, starter and water pump were also installed at a cost of $1600. We have over $20,000 in build receipts from 2013/2014 that are included with this fantastic Corvette. This vette starts every time, idles very well, does not smoke, handles extremely well, does not run hot at all, and has gobs of power and torque. It truly is an exceptional driving car.
You surely do not see them like this everyday, its a show winner, with many awards earned over the years.
