Cincinnati's premier Corvette specialist anda licensed and
registered auto dealer by the State of Ohio. With many years of

a very focused operation. We do it because we enjoy it. We are a

Seven Hills Motorcars is proud to offer this beautiful 1973 Corvette
in excellent driver condition.
This Corvette looks fantastic, runs great, and is an excellent
driver. The car is totally solid with nice lines and no rust issues. The
Gold Metallic over Saddle Vinyl is
a striking and beautiful color combinations that looks
great on the car. This is an excellent opportunity to own a classic Corvette that is
ready to be used and enjoyed at an unbeatable value. One could
easily buy this car now and sell it for more than the purchase price
in years to come as the market on C3 Corvettes is strong right now
and on the rise and 1973 is a special, one year only, body style. The clear
Ohio title, pictured below, shows the mileage as "Actual." Please peruse all of the
photos, video, and information below
to get a true sense of how nice and clean this Corvette really is.
As a side note, this Corvette is not a dealer auction
vehicle. We hand pick each car after careful
inspection. Our Corvettes come from owners who
expect their car to go to someone that will give the vehicle
the same care and attention as they did. 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
The 1973 Corvette was truly the end of an era. 1973 was the last
year to feature a chrome bumper and is considered by some to be the
last year of truly classic Corvettes. Model 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. The 1973 model year is also considered a special and
different year for Corvette enthusiasts as it was the only model to
have chrome in the back and a rubber bumper in the front. It is
representative of the transition Corvette was making at the time. 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.
The Gold Metallic
exterior is in nice driver condition. As one can see in the
photos the finish has a terrific gloss and deep
slotted Corvette aluminum wheels are in excellent condition with a brilliant finish
and no curb rash. The BF Goodrich Radial TA tires have about 90%
tread left. The
chrome looks terrific with no pitting or cloudiness. There are a
few blemishes and spots in the paint around car that are visible in
the photos and some that
were too tiny to show up in pictures, but nothing else that is
really noticeable from about five or ten feet away. There are NO
RUST ISSUES with this car and as one can see in the many photos
of the underside it is very clean underneath. The frame is
totally solid with no rust around the "key hole" area in front
of the rear tire and there are no signs of corrosion around the
windshield or "birdcage" area, which are the two most notorious
areas for rust on a Corvette of this era.
The car looks just as good in person as it does
in the photos.
Saddle Vinyl interior in this Stingray is in outstanding
condition. The seats are in excellent shape with no split
seams, rips, or excessive wear. The carpet is also in
fantastic condition with no holes, rips, or major stains.
This includes the rear carpet, which is often neglected. The
gauge faces are crisp and clean and the lenses are clear.
The door panels are in terrific shape. The door pulls are
solid and intact. The dash and console look nice with no sun
fading, there are a couple tiny cracks in the dash cap that
are too small to show up in the photos. The car now has a
more modern CD player that sounds great. The jack is still with the car and pictured below showing the
original decal on the compartment lid. This Corvette has never been
smoked in; there are no burns marks and no aroma of
cigarettes. Corvette interiors from this era are not known
to wear well, and the excellent condition of this interior is a huge testament to the care and
attention this car has received throughout its life.
The interior looks just as good in person as it does in the
This Corvette seems to be in
very good mechanical condition. The car starts right away every
runs well, and idles smooth. It drives great and feels nice on
the road and at highway speeds. In the video below one can
observe the car accelerating on the highway up to about 70mph,
shifting through all the gears, braking to stoplight, and going
through some curves. Please note that there are no vibrations or
strange noises and the car performs quite well overall. The
brakes are responsive and do not pull to one side or the other.
The transmission shift well. Also, the engine compartment is
beautifully clean and detailed.
The radio works as do all
the exterior lights, interior lights, wipers, and indicators.
All of the gauges work with the obvious exception of the clock. The vacuum system for
the headlights works correctly with no effort or binding in the
mechanism. Also, the headlights go up properly with either the
headlight switch or vacuum override switch. Their complete
operation form both switches can be viewed in the video below.
The horn and blower for the heater do not work.
Not enough can be said as to how much of a pleasure it is to
drive this car, especially with the
T-tops out on a beautiful day.
The car runs and
drives as well as it looks.
Overall, this 1973 Corvette is in
great driver condition. Low mileage examples in this
year range are very rare and draw a huge premium over a
standard Corvette. This Stingray is a great value and we have it priced to
sell. The value of third generation Corvettes has
increased dramatically in recent times, this is
especially true for the 1973 model year. They are solid
and wise investments for a collector. 1973 was a very
special and one year only body style for Corvette that
is always recognizable with the newer front end
treatment and the classic chrome bumpers on the back.
The previous owner told us the mileage is original and
the title shows the mileage as correct, but we do not
have any other documentation to prove the mileage.
While this is not an NCRS Top Flight or Bloomington Gold
car, it is a very nice driver quality Corvette and a
great car for the money. One could easily enjoy
this vehicle for several years and sell it for more than
the purchase price with minimal effort.
Thank you for looking and please do not
hesitate to email or call with any questions.
