The National Corvette Museum is auctioning off one of the cars that has been displayed within the museum in order to raise money for its various projects and operations.
The car in question is a 1974 Corvette that was donated to the museum in 2014. It was a one owner car when it was donated and has just 34,434 miles of the odometer, making it “great Corvette for an enthusiast’s collection, or for a regular driver,” the NCM says.
Painted in its original Dark Brown exterior color, the ’74 Corvette looks to be in near-perfect shape and features a Saddle leather interior with the optional custom interior package which, added wood grain door panel and console trim, along with carpeted lower door panels.
Under the hood sits the original 350 cu. in. V8 engine, which is paired with an L82 four-speed manual transmission. Corvette Rally wheels wrapped in Firestone white letter GR70-15 tires complete the package.
The NCM says the winner of this eBay auction will also receive the ‘NCM Experience’ tour. This provides a similar experience to the GM Option Code R8C, which enables a newly purchased Corvette to be delivered to the Corvette Museum instead of a Chevy dealer. For these owners, the NCM rolls out the proverbial red carpet, giving them a V.I.P. Museum tour, a one-year individual membership to the Corvette Museum, a commemorative plaque, silver decal and a photograph in front of the NCM.
