1977 Corvette Specifications

The Shark lost its convertible after 1975, the Stingray name for '77. But Corvette continued to evolve from fire-breathing muscle car to suave grand tourismo, abetted by the recent gas crisis, changing buyer tastes, and more federal mandates. Yet for all the change in its character, the Shark was one of the few American performance cars still left, one reason the '77 set yet another Corvette sales record.
