C3 Corvette Restoration on YouTube

Saying there are lots of Corvette-related YouTube videos is a gigantic understatement.

There probably aren't enough waking hours in the day to see but a small fraction of what's available out there. From C1 to C8 Corvettes, someone has made a video.

I've also published a few videos of my '76 Stingray, with one of them capturing over 12,000 views as of this writing. However, most of my videos are complementary to blog articles I write, so they tend to be part of a story rather than stand-alone videos.

Actually, a lot of them are unlisted and only accessible from this blog.


Needless to say, when it comes to YouTube, you have to take the bad with the good. Surprisingly, there's a ton of excellent content available for free. All you have to do is tune in.


I've been watching YouTube programs and videos since the early days. As a matter of fact, I don't even have regular cable TV at home. Just Internet access.

Between YouTube, Amazon Prime, and a decent collection of DVDs, I have plenty of news and entertainment right on my big-screen TV.

So if you haven't viewed at least a few of the millions of Corvette-related videos out there, you are missing a lot!

By the way, I would really appreciate it if you would visit and subscribe to my 76vette YouTube channel as well. The more viewers and subscribers I have, the more content I can produce.


IT'S NOT TV. IT'S YOUTUBE!

Here are a few C3 Corvette-related channels I enjoy and you should consider subscribing to. Some are Corvette-exclusive while others have a little bit of everything. And as far as the information offered, most are do-it-yourselfers showing you how they did something. That does not mean you have to do it the same way.

Also remember to keep in mind that these videos are produced by enthusiasts like you and me, so don't expect Oscar-worthy performances, although some of them are pretty well made. Others may have poor sound quality (or loud music) since a lot of them are made with smart-phone cameras or non-professional equipment.

In my opinion, most offer great information and entertainment. Free of charge.

So sit back, relax, and enjoy the shows.


I only recently followed a link to this channel and the work the guy has done to his C3 is incredible. It really makes me wanna run out there and find a new project. Alas, I don't have the funds or facilities to do what's he has done to his Corvette, so you'll have to check it out.




Ben has been producing Corvette videos for quite a long time. Most of them are C3 Corvette videos which are entertaining as well as very informative. I actually enjoy his non-Corvette videos just as much as I always manage to learn something. If I was rating YouTube Corvette channels, The Corvette Ben would certainly get 5 Stars!













This guy lives in Belgium and produces great videos about our favorite Corvettes. And for someone who does not have easy access to American car parts and accessories, he does pretty darn well fixing old busted components, something that's admirable.










A father and son team that have a great time rescuing unloved cars, including a 1978 Corvette barn find they turn into a restomod.







Willcox offers an enormous vault of Corvette instructional videos. I'm sure you'll find one that will answer your questions and show you how to fix C3Corvette components.




CorvetteHop has a great selection of C3 Corvette how-to videos, with excellent, detailed explanations and superb camera work. Definitely worth subscribing to.









The list is endless, especially when you take into account that most channels are not necessarily devoted to just one car. There probably are millions of C3 videos, and all you have to do is search.

And speaking of searches, when looking for something in particular, be as specific as possible to filter out unwanted results. 

Thank you for following my '76 Vette Blog!
