What you're looking at here is a very fine example of an original, clean, obsessively well maintained, 1973 Corvette Stingray, that is very nicely documented with 91,332 original miles, with excellent owner history.    The original color to the car repainted in Base/coat, clear/coat paint is beautiful. Aside from the repaint, this Corvette is amazingly original, and carries all of it's original drive-train including the original smog pump still in tact.
Turn the key and the original L82 350 roars to life and runs as clean and smooth the day it left C & H Chevrolet in Santa Barbara California. 
The 4 speed manual transmission and clutch assembly work together smoothly as well to transfer the power to the original, quiet 3.73:1 differential.
Everything listed on the original window sticker is still present, intact, and functioning properly. All accessories, lights, and gauges perform as they should.
What this is, is an opportunity to own a true investment grade, early C3 Stingray, that can be driven anywhere, and enjoyed. 
The only year with chrome rear bumpers, and body colored nose, 1973 was the link from the classic all chrome bumper-ed cars, to never a chromed bumper Corvette again, and that alone makes the 1973 Corvette a very special year.
What do you want in your Corvette? Clean lines, nice deep shiny paint, original numbers matching engine, and drive-train? Perhaps a vintage Corvette that you can drive anywhere, that's fun, and easy to get along with? Maybe you're into documentation, correctness, and originality!
Wouldn't it be nice to have all of the above all rolled up in one beautiful, classic car?...Yeah, I think so too. Great car!
