An affordable Stingray is already alluring... but rarely do you find a stick-shift, T-top 1973 Chevrolet Corvette with its original V8 and plenty invested to keep it a head-turner. That's why this sleek machine is a fleeting opportunity.
C3 Corvettes have the look of distinction, and so nobody who sees this car in your driveway will question how affordable it really is. That's especially true since this one was treated to a full professional respray in 2016. The Crimson Red has a sophisticated tone that stands apart from the rest of the bold red 'Vetts out there. And because it has a clearcoat shine, it radiates with a terrific modern luster. And speaking of modern looks, we all know '73 as the debut of the urethane front bumpers front. These gave the C3 an appearance of one long continuous wave, and it made the '73 much more of a designer's work of art. But just because this was a more streamlined car did not mean it skipped out on brightwork. It just made great features much more noticeable, like the Rally wheels, rocker panels, rear bumper, and optional luggage rack.
The factory-correct tan interior is a great complementing color to the sophisticated crimson. It has an understated look that gives this American classic an almost European tone. Everything looks original, but it has a far fresher feeling because there was a solid investment in restoring all the main pieces in 2016. This has all the features you want, including factory auxiliary gauges in the center of the dash, and just below it, there's an updated AM/FM stereo. You'll love hopping in, grabbing the three-spoke sports steering wheel, and gazing at the deep dual pod speedo and tach as you cruise around in your classic 'Vette. While this one has provisions for R134a air conditioning, the best wind will be when you take out the T-tops and let the world see the smile on your face.
The original, numbers-matching 350 cubic inch V8 is still providing the power, and it looks great sitting under the hood with its chrome distributor shield and bold orange valve covers. Plus, if you're a Corvette person, we bet you're marveling at how the air topper still has the correct diaphragm to help breath cowl hood's cooler air. The trusty small-block has been well maintained to fire up on command, and its four-barrel carburetor setup helps deliver a throaty exhaust note. It has a great throttle response, and you get complete control over this V8 with the desirable and original Muncie M20 four-speed manual transmission. Add in more driver's features like the fully-independent suspension, four-wheel disc brakes, and the grip of BF Goodrich T/A tires, and this is one of the best all-around sports cars of the '70s.
Great paint, great investments, and great originality come together to make a great deal on this Stingray. So you know this total package 'Vette will not be staying with us long. Call today!!!
