Good luck in your search.
I've decided not to go near this car based on what everyone's saying.

To all of you - Thank you so much! I honestly don't know what I'd do without your guys' wisdom. That blue coupe that got posted certainly looks promising, I'll probably go out to see it instead tomorrow.

It looks like the seller has put lipstick on a pig. As I understand, most of Streetsides cars are there on consignment. You received some first class help from the gang here. On any C3 you consider, be sure the seller will let you remove the kick panels and interior windshield trim to inspect the bird cage. As I search for my next C3, 73 and 74 are at the top of my list. 20K it right at the top of the 73 asking price. Right now its a buyers market. Take advantage of that and good luck with your search!

Never thought i would say it but i love that color, something really grabbing about it,
If you are good with auto and coupe it might be a winner

I personally prefer the coupe over the vert, and auto, although a slushbox is acceptable.
I'm leaving to go see it around 8 am tomorrow, so I'll either continue my search, or come home with it

I wish you the best of luck, it looks pretty sweet,
Ragtop was my big must, coupe would have made it easier,
I wanted 4 speed not because i like rowing gears but my build is old school and the slushbox fits that theme better,
But who knows when i will convert it over,
My big stigma is rust so inspect it for rust very well, the stuff that looks great in pictures is just gravy.

Major Update:
Bought the 72 today. It's amazing, couldn't've asked for a better vette. Caught myself going 90 and 100 a couple times on the interstate... whoops!

Nice job! That is a great looking 72 -- Elkhart green is one of my favorite colors on a vette.

Congratulations on the 72, post some pictures of the trim tag and vin and we can find out itís approximate build date.
Good way to close the thread with a happy ending. Now all you need now is a California duster and a quality car cover.

Here you go! vin is 1Z37K2S524723, and here's the trim tag.
Also, my neighbor just got himself a GT3 RS, so thought I'd post it.



One last photo of my new-to-me 72.
