1974 Chevrolet Red Corvette
Why This Car Is Special
The 1974 Corvette, like the restored black one we have here at Skyway Classics, was the first year for no chrome bumpers, the last year for true dual exhaust, and the last Corvette without a catalytic converter.

This Corvette has a 350 cubic inch small block Chevy V8 engine under the hood that looks great and is painted in Chevrolet orange with factory components like the finned aluminum L82 valve covers, cast iron exhausts, orange intake manifold, chrome ignition shielding, black factory twin snorkel air cleaner assembly, and air conditioning.
It’s backed by a heavy-duty TH400 3-speed automatic driving the stock Corvette rear end, which has highway-friendly gears inside that make this Corvette an easy cruiser and 4-wheel power disc brakes provide plenty of stopping power for this Vette.
The engine compartment is tidy and clean and our 1974 is perfect for a Corvette you’re going to drive and show on weekends since there is nothing as reliable as a small block Chevy in a Corvette.
The 4-wheel disc brakes are firm and it rolls on a set of Rally wheels and black sidewall Potenza tires.
Black vinyl bucket seats are split by the factory center console with the 4-speed shifter and woodgrain while you rock to an aftermarket AM/FM radio with the T-Tops on or off.
The interior looks as it did as it left the factory and looks great with the black door panels, black carpets, and the dash with factory gauges and controls, air conditioning, as well as the black factory Corvette steering wheel.
There is plenty of storage behind the seats in this C3 Corvettes. The rear is carpeted with cubby holes which house the battery, and anything else you need to carry with you. There is also room enough for a suitcase or folding chairs for attending car shows in your new classic.
The Corvette we have is re-painted in black and looks great showcasing the new for 1974 front and rear fiberglass bumpers.
Ours has the domed hood, L82 emblems, later model rear spoiler, chrome side mirror, and the iconic Stingray emblems on each side.
The black 1974 Corvette, like the one we have here at Skyway Classics, was the start of a new era for Corvette and these 74-82 Vettes are climbing in value every day.
This Corvette looks great and it certainly is a collectable car you should buy, drive, and enjoy.
