Price reduced! All vehicle trades considered, including classics and performance. I can assist with financing and transport as needed.
I always enjoy seeing a car like this one. It is a 1973 Corvette that not only has a low 39k miles, but has also been with the same owner since 1978 - almost 40 years! It has been driven very little through its lifetime and is now ready for a new owner.
To begin, this Corvette is a VERY late 1973 build. It has a date code of L30 which translates to July 30, 1973 (note July was the last month of production for the 1973 model). Further, it has serial number 34,273 which puts it 191 cars from the end (the last 1973 model was 34,464). Kind of neat.
This is an original code 910 Classic White car. It is accident-free with a straight body and good paint except for some small localized chips. Also the urethane front bumper has some typical paint issues of the era. The emblems, rocker trim, and rear bumpers are in nice shape, as are the Rally wheels. Note the vintage luggage rack too.
Under the hood is the original 350ci engine. As expected from this type of car, everything is complete and correct including the air cleaner, ignition shielding, and smog equipment. I doubt a valve cover has ever been removed. The motor runs and sounds great, the only issue being some smoke at start-up (typical of old valve seals).
The TH400 automatic transmission shifts smoothly. This Corvette also has power steering and power brakes, making it very easy for anyone to drive. In addition a variety of recent maintenance has been performed ball joint, brake caliper, transmission gasket, plug wires, exhaust, et al.
The interior is the original code 425 Dark Red and is in remarkable condition for a 1973 Corvette. The seat covers and plastic trim have held up very well. The center console is especially impressive as these are usually cracked. There is some wear / aging on the driver door armrest, also typical of the C3. The gauges and lenses look fantastic. This car has my favorite C3 option, that being a tilt/telescoping steering wheel for easier ingress/egress.
This is a unique opportunity to own a stock, low mile, late build 1973 with solid ownership history. It is complete and ready to go. Now let's see if the next owner will have it another 40 years.
