Buying a Vette Common C3 Problems 1975-80
OK, I'll add my 2 cents of experience from my 260,000 mile '75. Brakes are common, most guys have replaced with stainless sleeves. Electrical, engine compartment cowling harness can abrade and short out, that will have you scratching your head for awhile. Rear wheel bearings and u-joints are common replacement. Headlight actuators can be a problem, there are now some good seals made that cure the problem without replacing the complete unit. Front cross-member weld cracking, I've had mine fully welded and gusseted.
Good luck and enjoy.
