1973 Corvette Stingray Convertible Project.
The seller of this 1973 Corvette Stingray is somewhat vague about their car. They claim it has been sitting since they bought it in 1979 as a project car, but they don’t mention what was wrong with it then. If it was a fixer upper when it was only 6 years old, one can only assume that there were some major problems. We aren’t sure what issues it might have, but with a starting bid of $5k and no reserve, it might be worth looking into.
After sitting for the past 34 years, we are sure this Vette will need lots of work regardless of what was already wrong with it. The seller hasn’t tried to start it since parking it, so we aren’t sure if that means there were mechanical issues or not. The body looks straight and from what is visible in the pictures, the engine and interior both look to be intact. Hopefully, the seller is willing to share more about why it was parked in the first place. It could be something simple that took it off the road, but being vague makes most buyers nervous and could hurt their chances of finding a good home for it. If it isn’t anything serious, this could be a great buy for a 350/4-speed equipped Stingray.
