1973 STINGRAY CONVERTIBLE (w/Hardtop)
Proud 17-year owner of this numbers matching 1973 Corvette Roadster that I mechanically restored in 2006-07 with its most recent mechanical repairs this past September. The car shows its original yellow exterior with upgraded tan leather deluxe interior trim tag with 72,860 original miles. Original equipment includes: L48/300 hp (rebuild), TH-400 automatic, 3:08 posi-traction, AC, PS, PDB, PW, Map Light, Leather, AM/FM Cassette/Speaker System, Tilt/Telescopic, Luggage Rack, ’69 Side Exhaust, Silent Alarm, and Upgraded Quartz Clock.
I have owed this corvette since November 2005 with 59,800 miles and restored the entire engine, brake, steering, suspension, and exhaust systems between Oct 2006 – May 2007. I showed this Stingray from May 2007 – June 2010 having won several local and Super Chevy shows with one Corvette Best of Show, and served as a rolling promo of my powder coating business I established in 2006 and still operate today. My ’06-’07 restoration included refinishing, restoring, and powder coating as many original and new parts as possible for durability, longevity, easy maintenance, and appearance. Some of the new parts (still on the vehicle today) include:
PA State Inspection valid through September 2023(* see below)
Newer ’69 Side Exhaust Covers
Newer Aluminized Exhaust Pipes
PS cylinder, PS pump, Control Valve, All Belts
Tie rods, Idler Arms, All Hoses
Bushings, Ball Joints, Sway Bar Bushings

Stainless-steel Brake Lines, Caliper brake shields, Master Brake Cylinder
Jet Performance Stage 1 Quadra jet Carburetor

New BF Goodrich T/A’s

The only immediate remaining repairs are cosmetic which I planned for the spring include new front bumper (which cracked during last season storage), and replacing original interior rear compartment carpeting. The car was repainted over 25 years ago by prior owner with lacquer and has held up extremely well showing some spider cracks near the door edges, front right fender, driver door, and antenna (refer to photos). Also, the AC has not worked since I purchased the car in Nov 2005 and I never felt the need to repair it since I always drive with the top down.
