The owner of the dealership custom ordered this corvette as a “01 paint code” body in white(primer) for his wife then had his body shop paint it. One of less than 80 corvettes released in 1977 with custom paint option. When finished she did not want it so a family member of one of the employees bought it. He died at 70 and I bought it from his 94 year old father. He used the corvette to go to church on nice days and has been sitting in the garage for 10+ years.
We changed the oil and filter, transmission fluid and filter, rear end grease and additive, and checked and lubed the chassis. We also replaced all 4 calipers, 4 brake hoses, 4 sets of brake pads, master cylinder, sway bar links, rear leaf spring bushings, and much more.
1977 was the last year for the short back window. It was also the first year without Stingray badges on the fenders, and saw the return of the black exterior color option. Each early 1977 also had a polished horn cap, which was later recalled due to safety concerns over the sun glaring on it.
