#'S MATCHING 350CI MOTOR, TH400 TRANS, GREAT COLOR COMBO, AFFORDABLE C3 VERT
Fun and affordable weekend adventures are a guarantee with this 1973 Chevrolet Corvette. It will keep you smiling with its drop top enjoyment, 350 V8, and the unmistakable feeling that comes from being behind the wheel of America's sports car.
1973 was the year of the purist C3 Corvette. It was the only time Chevrolet offered the body-colored nose with the rear chrome bumperettes, and legendary designer Larry Shinoda had said that this was his intentions for the C3 from the beginning (it just took them five years to get there.) And of course, a bright red Corvette is the kind of iconic appearance that everyone loves to see when it arrives on the scene. The respray is only about 10 years old, and it was done with a meticulous hand. So it still gives you that nice prideful shine on any Sunday morning wash-n-wax. There's plenty of great brightwork besides the aforementioned bumpers. It includes the rocker panels, rear luggage rack, and the distinctive YJ8 aluminum wheels. In fact, a cool part of the Corvette's history is that those lightweight wheels were supposed to be on 1973 cars but were delayed, so their appearance here gives you a cool story to tell.
Beneath the tan folding roof is a matching tan interior. So no matter with the top up or down, you get a great coordinating color appearance in this classic Corvette. There are some nice upgraded touches throughout the interior, including the wood paneling on the center console and door panels, and the newer AM/FM/cassette stereo with digital tuner that has a classic appearance to look factory-correct. As the driver you get a three-spoke steering wheel. Just ahead of that is the large dual pod gauges, including the tach. Just to the side are a full set of auxiliary readouts for a true sports car experience.
The engine looks correctly stock right down to Chevy orange paint on the block, correct air cleaner assembly, and chrome distributor shield. It's even believed to be running the original four-barrel carb and the original heads can be included in the sale. But look closer, and you can see the belts, wires, and hoses have all received proper care over the years. So it's an engine bay that's highly detailed for originality but still very functional – making this Corvette the ideal balance of show and go. The motor fires up with ease, and the TH400 three-speed automatic was intended for any heavy-duty use the Corvette could throw at it. And that's what you want in a Corvette like this. It was built to be driven, and that's enhanced by features like the fully independent sport-tuned suspension and four-wheel disc brakes.
Bargains exist, and this Corvette is proof. Fast and still looking great, you can easily own the icon you never thought you could afford. Plus, this one even comes with its owner's manual and maintenance records for added distinction. Call today!!!
