The value price on a true classic got you to stop and look at this 1973 Chevrolet Corvette, but it's so much more. Not only do you have a clean numbers-matching V8, but it also has the rare numbers-matching four-speed. It makes for the kind of vintage sports car that's also a true driver's machine.
The 1973 Corvette was an exclusive year. It was the debut of the form-fitting rubber front bumper. This was also the only time the sleeker front end kept the classic two-piece chrome rear. That just seems like the best of both worlds, right? Plus, there's extra brightwork on the luggage rack, rockers, and Rally wheels. The red paint is an upgrade later in life. It currently has a survivor-like appearance, and so you could certainly let people assume this is an original red car. Or if you really want to take advantage of the new color-matched front end, the value price does leave room in the budget for a respray. And no matter how you choose to enjoy this one, the fit of the body panels, flush headlights, and doors that close with confidence all give this the feeling of a quality classic.
The saddle tan interior looks particularly nice against the exterior red. So we know you'll enjoy this one with the T-tops out. It's a vintage package, but this has also been given the right care and investments over the years. That's why you have nice high-back bucket seats, taut door panels, and clean carpeting. Even the correct AM/FM radio is still cranking out the driving music. This is a car built around the driver. That's why you have a tilt/telescope steering column, a large speedo and tach directly in front, and a full auxiliary gauge package prominently in the center of the car. And you just know that the bright gearstick is calling out for your right hand.
Under the hood is a very clean engine bay. So you really get to see some great details like the ribbed valve covers, polished distributor shield, and the gasket that seals the air intake to the fresh air cowl hood. It's a motor you're going to want to show off, so it's great that it's also the numbers-matching 350 cubic-inch V8. It's a strong-runner, and the four-barrel carburetor makes sure it gives you good power. Plus, less than half of the '73 Stingrays had a manual transmission, but this numbers-matching four-speed means you get to harness it all with ease. Four-wheel power disc brakes, power steering, and the fully independent sports suspension complete a package that makes this classic a great all-around driver.
Complete with owner's manual, this is a true classic in all the best ways, and a Corvette is always the best for hitting the open road. So at a price like this, you know you don't want to let this deal slip away. Call today!!!
