STORY

The history of the Corvette C3 convertibles goes back to the late 1960s and early 1970s. This era was characterized by a mix of freedom, progress and the search for a unique lifestyle.

The C3 wasn't just a car; it was a legend in motion. The convertible embodied the golden age of American muscle cars, with impressive performance and a design that captured the aesthetics of the era. The distinctive rounded front end and distinctive C3 tailgate gave the Corvette a timeless look.

Over the years, the Corvette C3 Convertible became a cult object. The model range underwent various facelifts and technological improvements, but the basic spirit remained unchanged. It was used on race tracks, driven in Hollywood films and appreciated by car enthusiasts all over the world.

The Corvette C3 Convertible is not just a car, but a chapter in the history of American car culture. Its legacy lives on in the hearts of those who were lucky enough to sit behind the wheel of this legendary convertible and feel the spirit of freedom and performance it embodied.

PERSONAL STORY

This Corvette spent its first years at home and came to Germany in 1989 and has had two owners since then.

They made some adaptations, typical for Corvette drivers. The C3 was given an electronic ignition and an intake manifold with a carburetor from Edelbrock.

Even if you like to feel the road, the better-sprung Koni shock absorbers were installed and to stay dry in a light rain, it got a new top in cream white.
