Default 1973 L82 4 speed, matching numbers




Car is located in Huntsville, AL.

More pics available upon request and I would love to discuss over phone or in person with you.

Family needs have changed and it is time to part with my vette. All major components on this car are original. Even the paint is original. Car runs and drives good. Motor is original except the carburetor. It has a period correct quadrajet from a Cadillac which I am told were a bit richer than the vette quadrajets. Has hooker headers with flowmaster 40s. Sounds great. Lots of new parts and work done including:

New vaccum system for the headlights
rebuilt steering column
new brake system- everything except proportioning valve
New aluminum radiator and reservoir tank
new tires
new sound system

The carpet and seats are not original but they are in good shape. The AC does not work but all the components are there.

98,xxx miles. Will go up as car is driven fairly regularly.

Asking for what it was professionally appraised for- $16,000- or best offer. No trades or help selling.

Thanks for looking.

Can you post some additional pics and history of the car? How long have you had it? Any damage or rust? Condition of undercarriage. Etc.

Thanks,
Keith

I apologize for not being the best at working the site, but I just posted two photos of what the car looked like when I bought it. I've had the car about three years. I bought it from a gentleman that manages a private collection in central Alabama. When I got it the car had sat indoors for quite some time. It ran and drove but needed a lot of TLC. The steering column was very loose, the brakes did not stop the car well, the exhaust had leaks everywhere, among other things that needed attention. In addition to the things listed in previous post, I had the rear glass installed with a urethane strip, new headlight vaccum system, new parking brake system, new tires, new courtesy light switches, new seat belts and interior trim reassembled, new gas gauge and oil pressure gauge, new corner marker lenses, many many more things I am forgetting. The car is now a very streetable car. I take it on long distance trips fairly regularly to see my family. With regards to undercarriage and rust, there is some light surface rust on the frame that you would expect to see on almost any vehicle. I've been meaning to rattle can it just for protection but haven't gotten to it. There is no rust/pitting structural damage and the birdcage is solid. The doors do not sag.

This will be a great car for someone that wants an original car they can drive and enjoy. I will be happy to answer any more questions you may have.

v/r,

Jacob

Thanks Jacob.

Can you detail what you know still needs repair or what is missing? I notice the luggage rack is missing, passenger interior door pull is missing, the front bumper isn't painted (or at least not to match). What remains that you are aware of that would complete this car?

The pics from taco bell are what it looks like as it sits now. The rack and antenna are all installed. I have door pulls for it but they are the wrong color saddle. The front bumper has not been painted...it is still the grey color.

to be honest, if I were going to keep it I would address the ac system, redo the weather stripping, and reinstall my Holley 4150 carb with electric choke, which i can throw in with the car since I no longer need it for another project. The current carb is a little cold blooded, but once warmed up performs great. The electric choke on the Holley is very nice.

it needs nothing to be a comfortable driver on a pretty day. The attention it needs moving forward would be cosmetic and/or "luxury". Hope this helps. Thanks for your questions and interest.
