Take a good look at this one! This exceptional 1973 Corvette has
been through a complete frame-off restoration, with just a few
hundred miles since completion. This project was twelve years in
the making, starting with a stock Medium Blue car and modest
ambitions. But as car projects often go, the scope (and cost)
quickly grew. In addition to loads of new or rebuilt parts, this
Corvette also received a great collection of performance parts;
400+ hp stroker engine, composite monospring front suspension,
custom exhaust, adjustable rear suspension, and more.
The car looks fantastic. It was completely repainted in 2011 at a cost of $10,669. Note the fiberglass nose in place of the urethane bumper, smoothed into the front of the car for a sleek bumperless look. The rust-free frame was cleaned up and painted with POR-15. New parts are in abundance; body mounts, bushings, seals, weatherstripping, rear bumpers, emblems, lenses, mirrors, exhaust tips, and more. The Rally wheels have also been refinished and look excellent with the Mickey Thompson P225/70R15 tires.
Under the hood is a performance-built 383 cubic inch stroker motor. This was a professional build and includes a list of components and tolerances. The new style block was bored +0.030" along with a 0.010" cut on the steel crankshaft. The rotating assembly uses Icon forged pistons and a Bullet Racing hydraulic roller camshaft. There is also an Edelbrock intake, Holley carburetor, Hooker coated headers, and an 8-quart oil pan. Cooling uses a Be Cool aluminum radiator, Flex-A-Lite fan, and shroud.
The transmission is a Muncie 4-speed that uses a new dual friction clutch, pressure plate, and release bearing. There is also a rebuilt differential with new half shafts. Other new or rebuilt parts include brake lines, cables, fuel lines, calipers, rotors, master cylinder, power booster, electric fuel pump, fuel tank, sending unit; too much to list!
My favorite modification on this Corvette has to be the VBP front suspension. This converts the old coil spring setup to a modern composite monoleaf (like a modern Corvette). The difference in ride and handling is tremendous! The rear suspension has also been rebuilt and includes adjustable strut rods. The power steering is essentially stock. As with the rest of the car, new parts abound; bushings, shocks, rear spring, steering control valve, etc.
The interior has been completely redone as well. Of course, there are new seats, new door panels, and new carpeting with FatMat sound deadener underneath. But as with the theme, there is no shortage of other new items; console, sunvisors, sill plates, window hardware, brackets, hinges, switches, and so on.
I have a binder full of receipts large and small, and the asking price is a fraction of the total investment. Obviously a ton of time and money has been put into this Corvette, resulting in a fantastic C3 that you will want to drive every chance you get.
