1975 Chevrolet Corvette C3

This was the last year the convertible would be made for the Corvette until 1986. This decision came about due to poor convertible sales the year prior, and new, stricter laws mandating rollover-protection.

The only optional engine available for the Corvette was the 350-cubic-inch L82 that was capable of producing 205 horsepower. The base model was increased by $800 to $6,800. The price increase was in part due to meeting and complying with federal clean air and vehicle safety regulations.

The standard engine also received less horsepower than the previous years and was now producing 165 horsepower.

This was also the year Zora Arkus-Duntove, the chief engineer for the Corvette for nearly 22 years, retired. David McLelan was his replacement.
