The transition from the 1975 to the 1976 Corvette wasn’t immediately visible to most, given the fact that most of the changes weren’t necessarily aesthetic. Most updates were focused on phasing out obsolete or improvable components and improving upon the general driving experience. The model was a success, selling almost eight thousand units more than its predecessor.
Noise reduction inside the vehicle was achieved by means of introducing steel floor pannels (that also lightened the car itself), replacing the cowl induction with an air cleaner positioned over the radiator, and reducing the wind turbulence created at the base of the windshield. Further weight was removed from the vehicle by offering the option for cast-aluminum wheels.
