1976 Bicentennial Corvette
not sure what an Edenbrock is, but at least he cleared up what Bicentennial is...



Vehicle Description

In 1976 America was celebrating its Bicentennial (200 years old) and what could be more representative of this era than a “Red, White and Blue” 76 Corvette Stingray. Corvettes are the first all-American sports car built by an American car manufacturer. Even though Chevrolet did not offer a Bicentennial Corvette like this one in 1976, I am proud to offer for auction this 1976 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray T-top coupe.

This piece of Americana history (classic) was originally one of 4,490 little red corvette Stingrays produced for this year. However, over the last two years it has been appropriately transformed, with its unique paint, into a one-of-a-kind muscle car that represents the “Spirit of America”. This Red, White, and Blue show piece sports a specialized flag paint finish with a texture feel that simulates the fabric feel of the American Flag. This car has been garage kept and covered since finished and has only been brought out for parades and car shows. Imagine it would fit in nicely in Fourth of July, Veterans Day, and Memorial Day parades and car shows.

Technically, this proud (and rare) Stingray drives tight, straight, and rattle free. This rust free coupe was completely refreshed over the last two years with plenty of receipts (too numerous to list) all of which will go to the highest bidder. This effort includes a fresh 350-cid (5.7-liter) 180-horse power small-block engine, Turbo Hydra-Matic 350 automatic transmission, hooker headers, new radiator, twin electric radiator cooling fans, and Eldenbrock manifold and carburetor. Fueled by an electronic fuel pump. The engine compartment has lots of chrome features and performance parts (see photos). The new power assisted 4 wheel disc brakes tame this fast classic to a smooth stop. The exterior stands tall with factory aluminum wheels (only 6,253 production models received these wheels), new tires and chrome side pipes. It had the removable roof panels (T-Tops), which do come in handy during parades and hot days. The T-tops and windows have all new rubber and seals. The interior is in excellent shape with spotless seat covers and new carpet. A grained vinyl-trimmed instrument panel holds a 160-mph speedometer with trip odometer and 7,000-rpm electronic tachometer. This car has electric power windows and a tilt- steering wheel. This coupe was originally an air-conditioned vehicle. However, the A/C was taken off during the refresh. All the electronics operate as designed which includes the new battery and after market AM/FM/CD sound system.
