Chevrolet Corvette 1973 Description

If you like your Corvettes with chrome bumpers, atching-numbers, nd an unusual color, erhaps this 1973 Sting Ray is waiting for you to take it home. With a lot of originality, strong-running small block, nd that sleek silver finish, his is a fantastic C3.Repainted just a short time ago, his car looks great, oth hammering down the road as well as sitting still where you can get a good look at it. GM offered all the traditional colors in 1973, ven though the names weren't all that interesting (this is called, imply, Silver"). The car was originally code 910 Classic White, ut we have to say that we like the way it looks now even better. The respray matches equally nice fiberglass work, nd there's no evidence that this 'Vette has ever been abused. Gaps are good, he surfaces are smooth, nd the whole thing fits together extremely well. The chrome rear bumper, hich was a favorite styling element for Sting Ray fans, s beautifully finished, long with the urethane front bumper and stainless rocker panel moldings. This is one of those cars where the more you look, he more you'll find to like about it.The trim tag says this one originally carried code 910 black vinyl, ut a few years ago, he smart decision was made to upgrade to fresh two-tone black and burgundy upholstery, nd the conversion was done to a very high standard. Aftermarket seat covers, resh carpets, nd matching door panels were installed, nd the dash was refinished. The gauges are all original and fully functional, nd there's a factory AM/FM stereo fitted in the center console (not functional but the components required to repair it are included with the car). The storage area behind the seats is sized for a few bags on an overnight trip or to hold the removable T-tops, hich seal up well, y the way.The L82 350 cubic inch V8 was rated at a nice, ound 250 horsepower and 300 pounds of torque, ut those numbers were now measured under the SAE net standard, hich slashed figures across the board, ut not performance. This is also the original, umbers-matching engine and retains all of its stock equipment including the dual-snorkel air cleaner that was part of the L82's upgrades. There's Chevy Orange paint on the block, nd an upgraded HEI ignition system has been fitted, o it runs extremely well. A TH400 3-speed automatic is the engine's travelling partner, nd the sucker sounds fantastic through the dual exhaust with proper mufflers and rectangular tips. Showing signs of careful maintenance and clean living, he chassis is solid and both the suspension and brakes have been recently serviced. Correct Rally wheels wear Firestone radials that have a lot of life left.This is the last of the chrome-bumper Sting Rays with no needs, resh paint, nd wonderful road manners. The V8 is a great combination of performance and reasonable economy and the price is certainly right. Call today!
