1973 Convertible - Orange with Beige Top and Medium Saddle Interior OUTSTANDING! Is it NCRS or NHRA? O.K., this is one C-3 that must be seen to understand what is going on here. When you first walk up to it, the originality and condition scream NCRS! Our detailing staff took no shortcuts making this high-quality paint look near Perfect! Top looks great, and the Interior looks that way as well. The interior is where you get the first hint that something may be going on here that is not quite NCRS original. The beautiful steering wheel catches your eye, but then all else looks original and great. You open the hood and see a very nicely painted engine that again looks original because externally it is the original numbers matching block but wait.........the Air Cleaner looks a little different.......... The stock looking decal on it states 383 STROKER!!!

What is going on here? The rest of the engine compartment is nicely detailed and ready for judging but again, what is that? Is that Fuel Injection hiding under that Air Cleaner? YES! And Wait. That transmission dipstick is familiar but sure looks like one found on a GM R700 4 Speed Overdrive Transmission, which it is! Enough! Here is what is going on. The original L-48 motor was professionally rebuilt to a 383 Stroker with all of the right goodies! high Performance Cam, Stainless Steel Headers, Electronic Fuel Injection, and nearly everything upgraded and new beneath the hood. Same with the rest of the Drivetrain including the rebuilt R700 and the Rear Differential which is now a Heavy Duty 3.55 unit. New Aluminum Radiator and all Cooling System Components, New Fuel Tank and related for Fuel Injection, fully rebuilt Trailing Arm Assemblies, Suspension and Brake System Components. Let's summarize by saying there are receipts totaling $50,000.00 from a well-known Corvette Repair Facility for what has been done to this car which are available for your review. The owner was meticulous with the build and with the maintenance since the build. This is an absolutely Beautiful C-3 Convertible with Chrome Rear Bumpers that looks and drives far better than when it was brand new!!! The car is realistically priced when you review what has been done and how painstakingly the work was performed the finished product! Regardless of your plans, whether they include NCRS Concours, Local Shows and Cruises, or simply dropping the top and creating some spirited driving enjoyment, this car WILL NOT DISAPPOINT!!! 

All the work and expense has been done for you! Don't miss out on this Magnificent Convertible!
