Written and designed for casual enthusiasts, as well as restorers who want to determine which parts, accessories and colors will restore their cars to factory-original condition, every title in the Bay View Original Series provides a huge selection of color photography, comprehensive factory records, thorough specifications, detailed parts lists and nostalgic period literature. The third generation Corvettes, built from 1968 through 1982, are the most affordable and frequently driven 'Vettes, barring the new models. This all-color guide depicts all editions from these model years -- including the ultra-fast L88 454 and ZL1 427, in addition to the standard 350 -- while carefully detailing engines, interiors and bodies.
This second book in the line of Corvette Buyer's Guides is a welcome addition to the market for Corvette C3 enthusiasts. The C3 Corvettes are the models that come to mind when many think of "Corvette", and in fact, this era of Corvette saw the implementation of numerous features, from emission control systems to an all-aluminum engine to the first Corvette to utilize a computer. Affordable, plentiful, and very restorable, the popular "shark" Corvettes are a perfect subject for this series.
