Streetside Classics - Nashville
6000 Reliance Dr
This 1973 Chevrolet Corvette Convertible has enough custom touches to deliver a terrific individual style. But no matter how distinct this Stingray is, it also never loses that classic American sports car feeling - right down to its numbers-matching V8.
The '73 cars are a great collector item. They debuted the sleeker color-matched front end, but still retained the stylish two-piece chrome rear bumpers. In fact, this one celebrates the brightwork style with upgraded rockers, a rear luggage rack, and a great-looking set of full polished Rally wheels. It gives this coupe a tasteful distinction. And while Dark Blue is a color you'd find in '73, the finish you see here is part of a later application. So it doesn't look out of place but it does deliver a more modern shine. And this deep blue complements the white vinyl convertible top to give this the appeal of a cresting ocean wave.
While we like the way this looks with the roof up, taking it down reveals a whole new dimension. There's a two-tone black and white on the seats, door panels, and sun visors. It's another great custom touch that really gives this Stingray a hint of a formal look. This was built with some nice features, like power windows and a tilt steering column for the upgraded steering wheel. There are even provisions for factory air conditioning (it will need servicing to blow cold again.) And overall, you know nothing beats the experience of taking down the top and letting the wind run through your hair as you listen to the V8 sing.
Under the hood is the numbers-matching 350 cubic-inch motor. The first impression is a stock look with just some extra polish added on top. But if you dig a little deeper, you'll see this V8 has been enhanced for power with an Edelbrock four-barrel carburetor, Edelbrock intake, and a nice set of long tube headers. And the enhanced sound from the dual exhaust really lets you know you have a healthy V8. More than just muscle, this is a fine all-around driver. The fully independent sports suspension, three speed automatic transmission, power steering, and four-wheel power disc brakes make it a solid anytime cruiser.
If you're looking for a Corvette with appealing color combo, numbers matching V8, and an affordable price, then you don't want to let this deal slip away. Call today!!!
