Don't worry, it's still easy and inexpensive to get into a great-looking Corvette with a rumbling V8 and a ton of options. With all the hype surrounding skyrocketing Corvette prices, it's no surprise that a lot of people forget that there are a lot of wonderful 'Vettes out there that don't care one bit about pedigrees and history. This 1973 coupe is a perfect example: a sweet-running small block, loads of factory options like A/C and power windows, and a timeless color combination that will never go out of style. If you're looking for first-class fun at an economy class price, this Corvette is your ticket. While white may not be as exciting as Bright Yellow or Mille Miglia Red, you can't argue with the clean, understated good looks of this Corvette, and Classic White is indeed its original color, which purists will appreciate. The bodywork was restored to a very good standard, too, with great gaps and fantastic surface prep that makes the white really pop and emphasize the Corvette's seductive shape. 1973 was a great year because it combined the new urethane nose with the classic kamm-back styling and delicate chrome bumpers to create a new look that was 100% Corvette. Other details like a chrome luggage rack, new lenses, and reproduction emblems (including the red nose emblem) give it a crisp, fresh look that looks great going down the road. Add in a set of lift-off T-tops for open-air motoring, and you have a recipe for summertime fun that's pretty hard to beat. Of course, nothing goes with white like a black bucket seat interior, and the upholstery in this car has been fully restored with new components throughout. The seats are as comfortable as they look with fresh covers and firm foam underneath, a new set of black door panels with woodgrained inserts, and that cool console with the integrated climate controls and power window switches. The gauges appear original and are in great condition showing only slight signs of aging, and the black carpets are protected by a set of Corvette logo floor mats. The A/C has been converted to environmentally-friendly R134a refrigerant, and the original radio has been replaced by a new Pioneer AM/FM/CD head unit with speakers tucked into the compartment behind the seats. Power comes from a 350 cubic inch V8, dressed for success in a coat of Chevy Orange with chrome dress-up pieces like the valve covers, ignition shield, master cylinder lid, and air cleaner. Tidy and clean, it's perfect for a Corvette you're going to drive and show on weekends, and there's simply nothing as reliable (or as fun) as a small block Chevy in a Corvette. There are definitely signs of recent work and regular maintenance. It's backed by a heavy-duty TH400 3-speed automatic driving the stock Corvette rear end, which has highway-friendly gears inside that make this Corvette an easy cruiser. The floors are undercoated to control sound, and the new exhaust system has been fully wrapped in exhaust wrap to control the heat. It also sounds amazing, with a great small-block snarl. The brakes are firm and confidence-inspiring, and it rolls on a set of always-handsome Rally wheels and BFGoodrich T/A radials. If you never thought you could afford an early Corvette, guess again. This one is nicely finished, loaded with options, and surprisingly quick. It's also welcome at any car show and, more importantly, any Corvette event in the country. If you haven't experienced the pure awesomeness that is a Corvette Caravan, I highly recommend getting into the game with this lovely Classic White coupe, and finding out for yourself how much fun owning a Corvette can be.
