AutoHunter Spotlight: 1976 Chevrolet Laguna S-3 coupe

Two-door coupe powered by a replacement GM ZZ4 crate 350cid V8


Up for auction on AutoHunter, the online auction platform driven by ClassicCars.com, is a 1976 Chevrolet Laguna Type S-3 coupe that’s been driven less than 5,000 since a cosmetic and mechanical restoration completed in 2000.

“The Laguna was introduced in 1973 on the General Motors A-body platform as a top-line trim of the midsized Chevelle model,” AutoHunter adds in the coupe’s listing. “The following year, the Laguna S-3 coupe launched using a revised grille in a body-colored urethane front end, distinct parking lamps and modified taillights.”

This 1976 example, from the model’s final production year, was resprayed in Chromalux Black during its restoration and features louvered rear quarter windows, Type S-3 badging and chrome headlight bezels.

The interior houses replacement Maroon Madrid cloth bucket seats and a new dashboard, door panels and headliner sourced from a donor vehicle.

Interior amenities include a tilt-adjustable steering wheel and an AM/FM/cassette radio with a Delco equalizer and four speakers.

Under the hood is a replacement ZZ4 350cid V8 crate engine upgraded with a Holley 650-cfm Double Pumper carburetor, MSD spark plug wires, an aluminum radiator, a Powermaster starter, ceramic-coated Hooker Super Competition headers and a billet aluminum master cylinder.

Power is sent to the rear wheels via a console-shifted Turbo 400 automatic transmission.

The odometer shows approximately 83,000 miles, although true chassis mileage is unknown.

This Chevrolet Laguna’s auction ends November 11 at 12:00 p.m. PDT.
