Corvette 1973

Title Status --
Exterior Color Mille Miglia Red
Interior Color Saddle Leather


Highly original and exceptionally presented, this 1973 Chevrolet Corvette represents a survivor-style coupe that can impress from its numbers-matching V8 to its cold A/C interior.

We love a Corvette in Mille Miglia Red. It's a terrific race-inspired name and a terrifically bold color. So it only gets better on a car that even shows the right signs of still having the original factory application. It looks exceptional for a car that's rapidly approaching the half-century mark. Part of the reason for this level of preservation may also have to do with the low odometer that's believed to reflect the car's full actual mileage (averaging under 620 miles annually.) It's an exceptional level or preserved quality you see throughout the car. The T-tops fit snug, the doors shut solid, the weather-stripping is pliable, and hood and headlight doors line up nicely. And since 1973 was the debut of the sleek urethane front end, we're glad to see this form-fitting piece fitting so snugly. And there's still plenty of brightwork to love with the Rally wheels, rocker trim, luggage rack, and classic chrome rear bumper.

The same kind of originality and quality is seen when you open the door. The saddle tan has a great look against the exterior red, and so you'll love taking the T-tops out to show it to the world. Even the leather on the seats is impressively preserved (another indicator of very low mileage.) This one has the best features still in place and working, like the Delco AM/FM radio and factory air conditioning. It's well-preserved right down to details, like the key buzzer and clock. In fact, the only addition you may spot is the set of diamond plate floor mats.

The engine bay continues the well-preserved style. This numbers-matching 350 cubic inch V8 looks authentic from the bold orange block to the gasket sealing the air grabber to the cowl hood. And while this looks like a time capsule, it has also been given the right recent servicing like a tune-up, new fluids, and even the underside painted. That extra care is why the V8 still fires up with gusto as it inhales deeply from the four-barrel carburetor. It's a classic that's set up to enjoy the grand tour, so you have features like a three-speed automatic transmission, power steering, and four-wheel power disc brakes.

Complete with owner's manual, this is a rare opportunity at a strong survivor. Don't miss out, call today!
