The Story behind this ‘76 Chevrolet Corvette SABER ***** Several weeks ago we had an incredible 1973 Volkswagen convertible (that was a unbelievable front engine Chevy 427 Pro-Street vehicle) ... and ... a gentleman contacted us and stated that he loved "One-of-a-Kind" vehicles. He wanted our "One-of-a-Kind" Pro-Street VW and offered this 1976 Corvette Saber as a trade-in. Well ... I had never heard of a Saber so he had to fill me in on the history and the rareness of this car. He was especially proud of being invited to last year’s 2018 Carlisle Import & Performance Nationals (the largest corvette meet in the world) to display the vehicle since it was such a rare Corvette. In fact ... that is why he personally performed a 8 month "Nut & Bolt / Frame Off" restoration of the Saber so it would show as perfect as he could possibly make it. u n b e l i e v e a b l e !!!
***Some of the HIGH POINTS of the restoration were***:
(1.) rebuilt stock independent suspension
(2.) full custom interior with leather seats & door panels
(3.) new stereo with power antenna, back up camera, navigation & blue tooth
(4.) remote controlled tilt nose using 2 linear actuators
(5.) Hotchkiss suspension & biostein shocks
(6.) new 4 piston calipers with drilled and slotted rotors
(7.) chrome block hugger headers & side exhaust
(8.) dual electric cooling fans
(9.) shaved door handles
(10.) t-tops & blacked out moldings
(11.) all new tires
(12.) new custom polished mag wheels
This weekend I drove to Miami to pick up 2 cars with my son Joshua ... and ... on the way home, a gentleman called me and stated that he was looking at our web site FSDHotRodRanch.com and noticed that we had a yellow Saber noted as a trade-in. he then offered that he was the original builder. A retired mechanical engineer, he now lived in Hollywood, Florida. He was a wonderful gentleman and confirmed all the information that I had been told by the previous owner and expanded on the story. He also stated that he would love to know where the car ended up ... and ... I stated that I would share his information with the new owner.
