We have this car priced to sell and are offering an excellent
opportunity to own a very desirable Corvette at an unbeatable
value. One could easily buy this car now and sell it for more than
the purchase price in years to come as the market on early C3
Corvettes is very hot right now and on the rise, this is especially
true for the 1973 model year as it was a one year only body style.
The low original mileage is verified not only by the condition of
the car, but also the clear Ohio title pictured in the ad that
shows the mileage as "Actual." Please peruse all of the photos,
video, and other information below to get a true sense of how nice
this Corvette really is.
As a side note, this Corvette is not a dealer auction vehicle. We
hand pick each car after careful inspection. Our Corvettes come
from owners who expect their car to go to someone that will give
the vehicle the same care and attention as they did. We invite and
encourage you to examine the car in person or have the car
inspected. Please take the time to scrutinize each picture. We
photograph each vehicle to the greatest extent so you can feel
confident about your purchase. If you have a question about the
Corvette, just give us a call.
The 1973 Corvette was truly the end of an era. 1973 was the last
year to feature a chrome bumper and is considered by some to be the
last year of truly classic Corvettes. Model years after were more
at the mercy of insurance companies, fuel prices, and emission
concerns, 1973 is considered the last "good" year by many
enthusiasts. The 1973 model year is also considered a special and
different year for Corvette enthusiasts as it was the only model to
have chrome in the back and a rubber bumper in the front. It is
representative of the transition Corvette was making at the time.
As in investment, the 1973 will always have an advantage and out
perform other years because of its precedence as the end of a a
very great period for Corvette and muscle cars as a whole.
The Mille Miglia Red exterior is in spectacular driver condition.
As one can see in the photos, the finish has dazzling gloss, deep
shine, and smooth finish. Both doors open and shut nicely. The
chrome and other bright look great with a brilliant finish. The
wheels and center caps are in excellent condition, please note that
this Corvette still has the correct and original 4-clip style
beauty rings, not the cheap foreign made replacements. The Goodyear
Eagle GTII tires have about 90% of tread left and are correctly
sized 225/70R15. There are a few very tiny blemishes and touch-ups
around car that were too small to show up in pictures, but nothing
else that is really noticeable from about five feet away. As one
can see in the many photos of the underside this car is very clean
underneath and has NO RUST ISSUES at all. The frame is totally
solid around the "key hole" area in front of the rear tire and we
have seen no evident of corrosion around the windshield or
"birdcage" area, which is the most common spots for rust on a C3
Corvette. We have included specific photos of the areas most prone
to rust to show how nice this car looks.
Window Date Codes
XU - All of the windows are date coded "XU." The "X" is the month
of production, February, and the "U" is the last digit of the
calendar year, 3. So all of the windows on this Chevrolet are dated
from February of 1973.
Please note all of the glass on this Corvette, both "Astro
Ventilation" door windows, the rear window, and even the
windshield, are original as each piece predates the car's body
build date of March 19, 1973 (H19). Original glass is a good
indication that this car has had no major accident history and
never sustained significant damage.
The Black interior of the Corvette is in excellent condition. The
seats look just in person as they do in the photos with no
excessive wear. There is just a small amount of normal wear in the
common spot on the bead on the driver's bolster. Please note that
these appear to be the original seats and skins, not some cheap
aftermarket replacements or covers. The carpet is in also in great
condition with no stains or rips. This includes the rear carpet,
which is often neglected. The gauge faces are clean and crisp and
the lenses are clear. The original radio works and most importantly
the dash has never been cut or modified for an aftermarket
installation. The dash and console are in great shape with no
cracks, fading, or sun damage. The spare is still with the car.
This Corvette has never been smoked in; there are no burns marks
and no aroma of cigarettes. Corvette interiors from this era are
not known to wear well and the excellent condition of this interior
is a huge testament to the meticulous care and attention this car
has received throughout its life.
We usually receive questions about the chrome knob on the left side
of the center console near where the driver's knee would be. Many
think it is an aftermarket switch, but it is actually a very rare
factory option for the rear window defroster. There is also a vent
on the left side near the rear window that blows air on the back
glass. There are two speeds for the defroster and it still works
This Corvette seems to be in very good mechanical condition. The
engine starts right away every time, runs well, and idles smooth.
It drives great and feels nice on the road and at highway speeds.
In the video below one can observe the car accelerating on the
highway up to about 70mph, shifting through all the gears, braking
to stoplight, and going through some curves. Please note that there
are no vibrations or strange noises and the car performs quite well
overall. The brakes are responsive and do not pull to one side or
the other. The transmission shift well, the shifter is tight, does
not pop out of gear, and the clutch feels good. The car runs cool
and does not overheat. The gauge shows that the engine makes great
oil pressure. Also, the engine compartment is beautifully clean and
detailed as one can see in the photos.
The horn works as do all the exterior lights, dash lights,
indicators, wipers, and original radio. All of the gauges work and
even the clock runs. The blower for the heater works on all speeds.
The entire vacuum system for the headlights and wiper door works
properly from both their respective switches on the dash and the
override switches. They go up quickly, evenly, and with no binding
in the mechanism. The entire operation from both switches can be
viewed in the video. Please note that even very detailed items like
the seat bel...for more information please contact the seller.
