Default 1973 Corvette Convertible

1973 Corvette Convertible

I have been a member of this forum for 20 years, one of the first 8,000 to join back in 1999. It has been a privilege to be a member of this great group and to own such a wonderful American Icon of a car.

Available is a 1973 Corvette convertible. I have restored much of the car during my ownership although there are too many repairs/upgrades to list. I’ve only driven the car about 5,000 miles so anything that has been serviced has very little drive time on the parts.

The previous owner added 1980 exterior panels and interior creating a unique appearance and that of a 1980-1982 convertible.

I have receipts for most if not all of the parts. I’ve made to many repairs/upgrades to list. I am including the more significant areas that have been serviced/restored.

Engine:

350 Chevy engine with rebuilt Vortec heads

Carter 625 carburetor

Edelbrock Performer aluminum intake

Electric fan with Painless Wiring harness

Replaced radiator

Transmission:

Mustang Cobra aftermarket Tremec Z-spec 5 speed transmission with overdrive

New Clutch

New Slip Yoke

New u-joints

Steering:

Borgeson upgrade power steering system

New flex joint (rag joint)

Replaced turn signal switch

Front Suspension:

New upper and lower a-arms with poly bushings

New upper and lower ball joints

Strut reinforcement bar

Billstein Shocks

New Big Block coil spring

New Sway Bar with poly bushings

Rear Suspension:

Restored differential (has 3.55 ration gears)

Restored half shafts

Replaced 7 leaf spring

Replaced trailing arms (from VanSteel)

New rear sway bar with poly bushings

Other Modifications:

C5 seats

C5 wheels

Added 3 point seat belts

New top

New header bar with power coat (these are often rusted out)

165 mph speedometer

Replaced all brake calipers with stainless sleeved units

Upgraded stereo

Replaced steering wheel, sun visors and door panels

Sell Price $7,900 or best offer

Please IM me with any questions.

Do you have any pictures of the engine and interior. Whereabouts are you located. I like the look of your car.

I have sent emails to everyone that has sent me an IM. You should have received 3 emails. I can only attach so many pics to an email due to size limitation. Let me know if you did not receive all 3 emails.
