SC 762 (1942)
SC 763

US 15: 0.5 - 11.2
US 76 Bus EB: 0.5 - 11.7
US 378: 2.2 - 13.9
Creation: Appeared in 1928. Originally ran from US 76 Sumter northeast via Elliott and Lamar to SC 34-35 (current SC 34-151) Darlington. This was a renumbering of the original SC 412.
Adjustments: In 1940, SC 763 west was extended to SC 261 Wedgefield as new primary routing. This brought SC 763 to a maximum length of 50 miles.
In 1954, all of SC 763 east of US 76 Bus-US 521 was renumbered as US 15 ALT (today this is US 401).
Sometime after 1973 (Sumter insets disappeared from official maps in the 1970's), SC 763 east was extended out to its current end at US 378, replacing what had been US 378 Business through Sumter.
Improvements: Fully paved since 1939. Mulitlaned in Sumter.
Comment: SC 763 was the highest number in use when created in 1928 until SC 901 came along.
SC 763 (1942)

 
 
SC 764
From: US 601 (Richland County)
To: US 76 US 378 (Richland County)

SC 263: 2 - 2
US 76, US 378: 7.2 - 9.2
Creation: Appeared in 1941 or 1942. Ran as it does today. From Westover south to US 601 had been part of SC 263 (and SC 26 and SC 52 before that), the rest was new primary routing.
Adjustments: None
Improvements: Fully paved upon creation.
Comment: SC 764 cutsoff a few miles between US 76-378 and US 601, but not many people would be making that general movement anyway (would use SC 48 instead).

Comment: SC 769 is a rare instance of a paved primary route being downgraded in the 1948 denumbering.

SC 771  not currently assigned
Previous SC 771's: SC 771: Appeared in 1941 or 1942 as new routing. Ran as a 3 mile cutoff between SC 432 (current S-35-21) and SC 43 (current US 378) in eastern McCormick County.
In 1948, SC 771 was downgraded to S-35-42, half of which remains unpaved today...

Previous SC 772's: SC 772: Appeared in 1941 or 1942 as new primary routing. Ran from SC 9 (curr. SC 9-912 jct) north to SC 77 (current SC 177).
In 1948, the 7 miles of SC 772 were downgraded to S-34-30. Note that today SC 772 ended at today's SC 177 jct with S-34-37. S-34-30 cuts west a half mile or so short of this location today, leaving an unnumbered dirt road where SC 772 went.
SC 772 (1942)

 
 
SC 773
From: US 76 (Newberry County)
To: US 176 Pomaria (Newberry County)
Total Length: 5.5 miles  
ROUTE LOG
US 76: 0 - 0
I-26 (exit 82): 2.1 - 2.1
US 176: 3.4 - 5.5
Creation: Resurrected as a state route in 1951 or 1952, running as it does today.
Adjustments: Originally appeared in 1941 or 1942 as new primary routing. Ran as it does today, plus 4 more miles east to end at SC 329 (current S-36-28).
In 1948, all of SC 773 was downgraded, presumably to S-36-33.
Improvements: Fully paved since resurrection. Oddly, the part that remained secondary was paved in 1942 while the other half was not.
Comment: SC 773 is the best method to get from I-26 to Prosperity. Also, the second largest Jockey Lot in SC is at the exit.
SC 773 (1942)

Previous SC 774's: SC 774: Appeared in 1941 or 1942 as new primary routing in northeast Pickens County. Ran from SC 186 to the Saluda River (Greenville County Line), a distance of 4 miles.
It is unclear if SC 774 was extended the short distance north to SC 288 before it was downgraded in 1948, to S-39-26.
