about the dealership
Seven Hills Motorcars is Cincinnati's premier Corvette specialist and a licensed and registered auto dealer by the State of Ohio.  With many years of focused experience I specialize in 1957 to 1982 Corvettes.  There is no other dealership that can better meet your needs if you would like to buy, sell, or just find out more information about your Corvette.  This is simply a one man operation, and this is not my full time employment.  I do it because I enjoy it.  I am a collector and enthusiast and therefore look for cars that excite me.  I do not purchase at dealer auctions; each car is hand picked by me because it is special or rare to me and because I like it.

vehicle description

 

 

Seven Hills Motorcars is proud to offer this low mileage 1973 Corvette Convertible in great driver condition with just 85,600 original miles.  This car has a very desirable color combination of Medium Blue over Black.  This is the correct and original color scheme, verified by the trim tag pictured below.  The low mileage is supported by not only the condition of the car, but also the clear Ohio title, also pictured below, showing the mileage as "actual."  While this car is does not have the original engine, it does have a correct 350ci Chevrolet V8.  The casting number on the block is 3970010, which was a very widely used block for Chevrolet.  It was also used in Corvettes from 1969 to 1979.  This car has always received complements whenever I have driven it.  I invite and encourage you to look at the Corvette in person

The 1973 Corvette was truly the end of an era.  1973 was the last year to feature a chrome bumper, it is considered to be the last year of truly classic Corvettes.  Years after were more at the mercy of insurance companies, fuel prices, and emission concerns, 1973 is considered the last "good" year by many enthusiasts.  As in investment, the 1973 will always have an advantage and out perform other years because of its precedence as the end of a a very great period for Corvette and muscle cars as a whole.

As a side note, this Corvette is not a dealer auction vehicle.  We invite and encourage you to examine the car in person or have the car inspected.  Please take the time to scrutinize each picture.  We photograph each vehicle to the greatest extent so you can feel confident about your purchase.  If you have a question about the Corvette, just give us a call.

Exterior

The Medium Blue exterior is in nice driver condition.  As one can see in the photos the finish has dazzling gloss, smooth finish, and deep shine.  Often many Corvettes will have particularly chipped up front ends, this car does not.  The underside of the front end, very fragile part of the car, is in great condition as evidenced by the photos.  There are no major imperfections that have been intentionally excluded from the photos.  There are some touch ups, cracks, and other blemishes on the car that were too small to show up in photos, but nothing that really stands our from ten feet away.  The chrome shows well with a nice shine.  The convertible top is in good condition with no rips or holes.  The rear window is not yellowed or foggy.  Also, the top opens, closes, and operates easily as it should.  Please note that this car still retains its original and correct "Astro Ventilation" door glass.

 

Interior

 

The Black interior of the Corvette is in great condition and very original.  The seats are in nice shape and look in person just as they do in the photos with some slight wear in one spot on the passenger's side.  There is specific photo below showing the wear.  The carpet is in decent condition, especially for being original This includes the rear carpet with is often neglected.  There is one spot in the drivers side foot well that is visible in the photos, however, the area it totally covered by the floor mat.  The dash and console are in terrific condition with no cracks, sun damage, or fading.  There is one very small crack right in front of the radio that is visible in the photos.  The plastic header by the convertible top handles is also cracked in the center.  The car features an aftermarket radio that was make specifically for this era Corvette and fits in the stock location.  Thankfully, the console was not cut or modified for the installation.  This car has not been smoked in, there is no ash in the ashtray, no burn marks, and no odor what so ever.  The original pedal pads are not excessively worn, and as one can see from the pictures show normal wear for a car with this mileage.
 

Mechanical

This car is in good mechanical condition.  It is an very nice driver that is tight on the road and at highway speeds.  There is no smoke when starting or driving the car.  The transmission shifts smoothly throughout the power band.  Also, the engine compartment is beautifully clean and detailed as one can see in the photos.  This Corvette has plenty of power.  It idles well, runs well, and starts right away every time with a manual choke.  The brakes are responsive and do not pull to one side or the other.  The car stops okay, but not as well as other Corvettes we have had.  The car has an aftermarket cruise control system that actually still works as do the headlights (slowly), headlight override vacuum switch, all gauges (with the obvious exception of the clock), interior and exterior lights, and wipers.  The only other items I am aware of on the car that do not work are the horn and a/c.  The compressor is free and not locked up so the system most likely needs to be recharged.  These are minor issues that are present on many of Corvettes we encounter from this era, that do no affect drivability, and that most owners would not disclose.  Not enough can be said as to how much of a pleasure it is to drive this car, especially with the top down on a beautiful day.


Overall
Condition

 

Overall this Corvette is in great drier condition.  Corvette convertibles are more rare and always draw a premium.  In addition, this Corvette is also optioned with a very desirable color combination.  The value of the C3 body style Corvettes has gone up dramatically in the past few years.  They are all solid investments for a collector.  Someone could drive and enjoy this vehicle for several years and sell it for more than the purchase price. 

 

Thank you for looking and please email or call with any questions.
