Corvette stinking gray has always been a popular car for people from all walks of life.The iconic shape of Corvette's tan will turn around even today.Thirty years after the last brown color was produced.This article aims to provide all Corvette fans with information about Corvette stinking Ash,Whether or not you already own a CorvetteThinking about buying a CorvetteOr like interesting facts and numbers about the classic concerto.C3 Corvette yellow fish is the generation of Corolla produced between 1968 and 1982.The general design idea for Corvette yellow fish is modeled after the Mako shark II concept car.When the term, "C3", is usedIt refers to the corolla of the 3rd generation.Each generation of Corvette is designated as such.The current siren (as of 2011)Called C6,Or 6 generations of CorvetteEvery generation refers to any major change,Such as body design,drivetrain,etc.Of course,Each year the model changes slightly from one year to the next in a single generation,However, they still maintain the same general look and feel as the rest of their generation.In the case of C3,The engine and chassis components were mainly shipped from the previous generation,But the body and the interior are new,So the designation of the new generation.This can be very useful when looking for information about Corvette for a specific year,As most Corvette enthusiasts have mentioned, a generation of bitsets or years are more frequent.One of the most obvious facts about C3 Corvette is that it is T-Removable roof panel on top in Corvette.Many 3rd generation lampshades have removable glass or fiberglass tops that allow the driver or passenger to remove the roof panel,So allow a more open top.This was a fairly new concept at the time.It's not the original design.The designer initially wanted the car to be the top of Targa,This means that the entire roof panel is movable.So shorten the name T-Top.After testing,Engineers determined that the lack of support in the middle proved a strong V-8 engines.This combines the fact that the body is a potential design defect made of fiberglass that may cause the body to bend under acceleration,Causing the windshield to breakchipped paint,And other complications.As such,The designer added support in the middle,This seems to be similar to the letter T.The name is still "T-Top "even if the design is changed from the original and the name is to reflect the previous design.In C3,GM has made many attempts to further develop Corvette,Ultimately, the current design.A try like this,This is also a relatively little known fact.There was once a rotating engine Corvette.In 1970,Chevrolet authorized Wankel rotary engine (Similar to the type used in the famous Mazda RX7 and RX8And start building a two-Rotor and four-The rotor Corvette is in its testing and experimental department.In June 1971, Ed Cole, president of General Motors, approved the fiberglass model.On September 13,1973 one 266 cubic inches two-Rotor Corvette on display in FrankfurtGermany.The four-Rotor 390 cubic inch Corvette on display in ParisFrance on Oct.4,1973,And two-rotor.The 2-The rotor engine developed by GM is a fuel and oil hungry engine,Not actual production.On September 24,1974,General Motors President Ed Cole delayed the launch of the Wankel engine,Most likely due to emissions difficulties and fuel and oil problems.The rotating engine Corvette has never been produced.This adventure is really useful.however.It helps GM understand the limitations of the car,And venture into other areas to explore.Another innovative idea is formed at the same time.GM is trying to produce mid-term-Engine CorvetteIn competition-Italian engine sports car.It's called XP-882,It first appeared at the New York motor show in 1970.The engine is a small piece of V-400 cubic inches-8 installed behind the seat,transversely (Like most front wheel drive cars todaySitting on the sidewalk with an engine.The engineers built two XP-882's.Soon after 2 was builtJohn DeLorean,Later, the man who opened the company, behind the famous DeLorean sedan, was named by his name.Become general manager of Chevrolet.John canceled the plan?Because it is expensive and impractical to build.This is a big hit at the auto show,But GM never produced or sold XP-882 Corvette.At least one,if not both,These extremely rare corals are still known.If you're a collectorOr to find a precious history.Find a 1970 Corvette.The corolla of 1970 is considered to be the most desirable C3 generation of many,as only 17,Due to the production problems caused by the labor strike, 316 of the production was produced in that year.Let you know why this number is relevant?Ford Mustang production in the same year was 190,727,More than 10 times the volume!This is the lowest production since 1962.Examples of good quality are getting harder to find.If you're looking for rarity,The rarest and most ideal of all produced C3 Corvette yellow fish is 1969 ZL1 Corvette.The $4,Many other options are required for the 718 ZL1 package,including $1,032 L88 special L88 (All aluminum blocks)427 cu.in.430hp Engine,$81 K66 transistor ignition system$37 F41 special front and rear suspension,$384 special heavy duty brakes,And $46 G81 location-Core rear bridge.There is no ZL1 bag for radio and air conditioning,And only 2 out of 38The 762 corvittes produced that year had ZL1 bags.The total price of the new car is about $11,000,Including the base price of $4781.Put this number in perspective.$11,000 is the price of some small 3 bedroom house,Or a new Ferrari at that time!The same year,Buyers can get a well-equipped Pontiac Firebird Trans Am for about $4,300,Make this a really rare and special car.The C3 yellow fish generation is the largest generation of Ziwei produced so far,Is the most popular collector today.Of the over 1.Between 1953 and 2010, 5 million corvittes were builtover 540,000 was manufactured in the C3 generation,Between 1968 and 1982.These are wells-Known, "smelly Ash", DesignAlthough slightly different names, "Thorn rays", have been used up to 1963.Corvette #500000 is 1977 yellow brown White.It launched the assembly line in March 15,1977.This is a special collection car.Because it celebrates the corolla of half a million.It is a well-It is known that all corals today are produced in one place,That's Corvette factory in Bowling Green.Kentucky.However,This is not always the case.Up until 1981,Corolla is in the Holy.Louis,Missouri.The last St.Louis, Corvette completed and left the factory in June 1981 and July 1981.You wonder why they only produce one per month?The green production of bowling has come into effect,Two factories have been working together for months.Holy allowed.Louis factory assemble as many cars as possible and they can still stay in their inventory with the parts.This allows them to save on transportation and labor costs,Since the big parts of mobile cars are quite expensive and labor-Intensive business.After the two cars left the factoryBowling Green,Kentucky,Become the only factory to produce Ziwei.This is the only time to produce Ziwei at the same time in two factories.Cars produced in only one factory allow stricter quality control,More than quantity is provided,So this is still the standard Corolla.The last one was built in the Holy.Louis is a white man with a construction date of July 31,1981.Somehow,This car has survived for 30 years.Now it's completely restored.All frame and chassis marks,Exactly the same details as when it left the factory.A hidden patch was originally installed by factory workers in front of the car in front of the right of the finderwell to designate the last car on the production line,This helps to verify the car.The car has a 3-190 cubic inch engine with 350 horsepower.speed Turbo-Automatic transmission with hydration 350.The car was sold in Barrett-Jackson's September auction in Las Vegas2010 for $150,000.I hope these facts about Corvette yellow fish prove useful and interesting.Corvette is indeed an iconic car.Capture the hearts of generations,Young and old.
