I like this 73. Might want to pull the trigger. I would welcome opinions. Would you buy?

Looks like a lot of money for a very modified coupe.

I just sold my '74 Vette and I learned a lot about C3's doing the restoration. In the ad it mentions door panels replaced but no mention of the carpet or rear compartment. If its the original carpet its trash and that rear compartment which costs about $180 to replacement is also broken in pieces. No mention of any other interior parts replaced. There is so much that can be worn out and broken inside it would take too much typing. I can't tell you how many C3's out there have nice paint jobs but the interiors look like a cat lived in it. I see this at all my local shows. Not for me. 100% you need to see this car in person! Don't chance buying it sight unseen!

There are a lot of Corvettes in this photo. I would absolutely go check it out in person. Perhaps you'll find one you like better. Keep in mind, you are paying at least $5K on top of what the car is "worth" for the privilege of having it curated by a used car dealer in their fancy showroom.

Are you sure you want an automatic?

Looks like AC compressor is missing.
They changed the rear end grease. ???
but it looks nice.

Nice looking car but very low options for the money.
No power windows, no tilt/tele, no A/C. For that kind of money you should get a pretty nice '73 with a full load of working options.

NEVER BUY A CAR WITHOUT INSPECTING IT IN PERSON.

I would not buy the car, but that means nothing. If you like it, go take a look at it.

Rear suspension is not right. Stance is too high. Right rear chrome bumper looks to be in poor condition in this shot. Take a hard look underneath in person at this one. Good luck!
