This 1973 Chevrolet Corvette Convertible is the right mix of
history and upgrades. You see it best in the way the
numbers-matching V8 was rebuilt for added power. And with the
distinct color, sharp handling characteristics, and drop-top
appeal, it makes for a convertible you're going to want to really
We love the factory-correct Elkhart Green paint. It was only
offered a couple of years on the Corvette, and it has a distinct
appearance that gives a nod to the speedy days at the now Road
America racetrack. And this one gets the sports car attitude right.
The finish was resprayed later in life, and today it remains
attractive while also being driver easy. It makes for the ideal
sunshine-friendly convertible that's right for sunny Sunday drives.
Flared fenders, bright Rally wheels, wide exhaust tips, a power
dome hood, and the debut of the color-matched front end are all
about a sleek and desirable Stingray.
The white roof fits well and looks good, but a car like this is
always meant to be open to the world. After all, the correct saddle
tan interior looks distinct against the green paint. Plus, the
freshness of the door panels, carpet, dash, and upholstery show a

well-integrated retro-style AM/FM digital tuner with cassette. You
get a three-spoke steering wheel. Just ahead of that is the large

Under the hood is the numbers-matching 350 cubic-inch V8. At first
glance, it's quite stock, but the clean and tidy style also lets
you start to recognize how upgraded this is. It was rebuilt later
in life, and now includes go-fast goodies like aluminum heads, an
Edelbrock intake, and topped with a four-barrel carburetor. And
shorty headers add power while contributing to the rumble of the
dual exhaust. It also has quality supporting pieces, like an
aluminum radiator and an HEI distributor. It makes for a strong
runner that's also a solid cruiser. That's why you have easy
driving features like power steering and a three-speed automatic
transmission. And the four-wheel power disc brakes and fully
independent suspension make for a fun drop-top on the back
A distinct color, better original power, an attractive interior,
and open-top fun are all part of this affordable classic Stingray.
