#'S MATCHING BIG BLOCK 454, HARD & SOFT TOP, SAME OWNER FOR ALMOST 40 YEARS
A classic 1973 Chevrolet Corvette convertible that's this affordable is already an alluring proposition. But then when you see that it comes with all the best features – from two tops, to the original 454 big block under the hood – then you start to see that it's absolutely irresistible.
The finish on this car feels quite modern. The matte appearance is the kind color that BMW would refer to today as Frozen Silver. While we don't have all the answers for this type of presentation, we can say that it's unique, striking, and memorable. Having this paint on a 1973 car is the right idea. This was the first year for the body-colored nose, and when combined with the removable hardtop, you really get to maximize this exotic appearance. In fact, we love the way the mirror-like smooth brightwork is able to standout while also complementing the paint. You see it on the rear bumper, luggage rack, dual exhaust, and iconic Rally wheels.
And speaking of complementing colors, the blue interior is a great pair with the exterior silver. It's one of the best hues for the inside because it allows the bright accents to pop on everything from the door panels, to the three-spoke steering wheel. Some of the great factory options remain, and so you have provisions for features like an AM/FM stereo and air conditioning. And like any true Corvette, it's a true driver's car. So you get the dual pod speedometer/tachometer in front of you, with a full gauge package prominently to the side. And if you're out driving with the top down when the weather turns bad, it can all be buttoned up with a nice white vinyl convertible top.
Lift the hood and see an engine bay filled with big-block power. This 454 cubic-inch V8 is the car's original numbers-matching engine, and it really is a strong runner. The tidy engine bay features the correct details like the Chevy orange paint on the block as well as the bright distributor shield, valve covers, and air topper. There's nothing quite like turning the key and hearing this monster motor awaken. And the three-speed automatic transmission is stout enough to handle all the power and torque. It's easy to keep all this big block muscle corralled with great driving features such as the Corvette's fully independent sports suspension, power steering, and four-wheel disc brakes.
This C3 convertible has been under the same care for the last 38 years, and it has received the proper attention a long-term classic would. So you're looking a great big block droptop at quite a nice price. That's why you know you have to hurry on this deal. Call today!!!
