Just got the Mecum note too, all great other than being a '75?
Interesting the auction includes a 1975 GM letter w/ Coupe and 'Vert breakdown of the 1975 L82 cars.
No Trans info noted but 2007 L82 Coupes and 366 L82 'Verts = 2373 total.

Default L82 Corvette...

Not sure I understand the 'L79' connection...the letter only mentions L82

As for it being a 1975...well I like that era...I was building my first hotrod...Corvettes were cool....especially red ones.

You can ship it to my house...I'll pay the freight

Meant to say L82 but typed L79...50+ years using aluminum cookware is starting to show?
Fixed now, thanks Wilma!

I like it, but the value would drop if I owned it because I'd be driving it.

----Bob Z (my partner in crime at Classic Motors) and I went to a small town just north of Indy and bought this 75 Corvette from the original owner in the early 80s I think. He bought it for his girl friend at the time. I believe we sold it for her about a year later or so because no one wanted to put any miles on it...….Bill S

I thought it looked familiar - I sent the link to Stretch and he confirmed it. I remember seeing it at the shop in Joliet way back when.

I always wondered why, with all the options checked off, the OO didn't order white lettered tires, but who cares with such an exceptional car. This is the ultimate 75 Corvette, in my opinion. I talked with Stretch yesterday and reminisced about our trip down to buy it. We really weren't expecting anything like what we saw when the owner opened up the garage door..….Bill S
