1977 Corvette: No Longer a Stingray

1977 Corvette in Medium Red
1977 Corvette luggage rack
1977 was another year of minimal changes. Above: a new luggage rack (RPO V54; $73.00) was an available option. It was designed to accommodate the removable roof panels, freeing up some interior storage space. Glass roof panels were listed as an option (RPO CC1) but none were sold. They were available as an aftermarket "Moon Roof". An eight track tape player with AM-FM stereo (RPO UM2; $414.00) become a popular option.

1977 to 1082 Corvettes at 50th anniversary event Right, bottom to top: 1977 to 1982 Corvette line up. These were tough years for the Corvette - and all car manufacturers - as smog regulations had sapped much of the performance (and some say soul) of America's sports car. For this reason, the mid '70s to early '80s are not considered to be premier collectables by the Corvette community. But there is an upside to the situation. If you're looking to make a Corvette part of your life and your budget cannot accommodate one of the blue chip 'vettes, there is hope. Corvettes of this vintage do have a lot to offer at very reasonable prices.
