1973 Corvette Coupe FOR SALE - Matching Numbers * Great Driver

Updated: Feb 14, 2010


DESCRIPTION: This is a great driver, California car with matching numbers, rebuilt original engine, low mileage, a real straight body, awsome frame, and a nice paint job. It came to us needing some minor repairs. We found that this is very much a survivor car with most original components still intact. One pop-up headlight didn't work. It needed a new actuator. Headlight pop-up linkage had all original nylon bushings still looking like new. The entire original vacuum hose harness with all GM tie straps were as the factory had installed them.

The engine runs excellent, always starts on the first turn. Exhaust system is non stock headers with integrated side pipes. Looks to be Doug Thorley side exhaust, not as noisy as stock Corvette side exhaust. Exhaust system is in excellent condition. Crome Moroso valve covers and spark plug wire brackets were also added. We also noticed the original GM hood insulation, paper emissions label, and radiator support seals still in good shape after 36 years.

Service records and owner history dating back to 1981 are with the car. Records show that rear trailing arms were rebuilt with new wheel bearings. Brake calipers, pads and shocks were also replaced. We just gave it two new stainless sleeved brake calipers and noticed front rotors still had original factory rivets. Rotor thickness is at factory spec and had no heat cracks. Also one or two front ball joints still had original factory rivets. Engine has 7,000 miles since its rebuild. Frame is rust free, no scale, no repairs, all original. Looks like it was undercoated many years ago and never used. It all adds up to a car that has seen little use.
