Classfind Cut 63: 1974 Chevrolet Corvette – $13,995
Entering its seventh model year, for 1974 Chevrolet’s C3 Corvette featured a new rounded urethane rear bumper system in place of the squared Kamm-back tail and chrome rear bumper blades. For the 1974 model only, casting limitations mandated left and right bumper covers with a vertical center seam. Engineers moved the anti-theft alarm key activator from the rear panel to the front left fender. Tailpipes were now turned down as the new bumper cover eliminated the tailpipe extensions.
