Description

Third generation Corvettes (1968–1982), commonly known as C3s, are among the most plentiful and affordable Corvettes on the road today. Production spanned 15 years with more than 540,000 examples built, making these the most common of any Corvette body style. Unfortunately, many have fallen into disrepair and are in need of restoration. This book will delve into all of the idiosyncrasies of the C3’s engine, drivetrain, body, chassis, and interior to guide both first time and experienced restorers to a successful conclusion of their project.
