For Sale: 1973 Chevrolet Corvette in Mesa, Arizona

Vehicle Description

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 today!!!
