With a sought-after color, proper V8 power, and a leather interior,
this 1973 Chevrolet Corvette is instantly alluring. And as you keep
digging deeper, you'll see the right mix of care and investment for
quite a striking total package.
The trim tag tells us this was born a Metallic Yellow coupe. It's
rare because this was exclusive to 1973, and many of the others
have likely turned into red and black cars by now. Instead, this
one was given a nice respray of its correct color later in life.
Today, it retains a good gloss to show off the well-kept body
panels while also never getting too fancy to make you shy away from
driving this one. This was the first year for the color-matched
front end, and this emphasizes that with a chin spoiler. But you
still get plenty of proper brightwork with the two-piece rear
bumper, polished rockers, Rally wheels, and added luggage rack.
Black is a timeless color combo with yellow, and so the
factory-correct color package has a nice harmony inside and out. We
love the high-back bucket seat finished in leather, and it's part
of a good look and feel of a driver-ready interior. There are even
comfortable features like the retro-style AM/FM/cassette stereo and
provisions for factory air conditioning (it will need servicing to
blow cold again.) It really speaks to your driver's heart with
details like the tilt/telescopic steering column and full gauges -
including a large speedo and tach. So you just know this is the one
you want to take out the T-tops and hit the road.
Under the hood is proper Chevy power with a 350 cubic inch V8 and a
four-barrel carburetor on top. The motor has a stock-style
appearance, right down to the gasket that seals to the fresh air
cowl hood. But we also have receipts documenting over $1,600 spent
within the last year for quality components. It includes a polished
alternator, starter solenoid, fuel pump, Optima battery, oil
change, coolant flush, and steel braided hoses for the aluminum
radiator. It makes for a stout motor that's at the heart of an
all-around solid cruiser. That's why you also have a TH400
three-speed automatic transmission, fully independent suspension,
power steering, and four-wheel power disc brakes.
A sought-after color and good maintenance make this solid Stingray
a truly irresistible buy. So don't miss this deal. Call
