Yes, it's not original - as I've disclosed. However, the original
steering wheel, emblems, radio and even glass is available if the
buyer wishes to have it. Professionally restored doesn't necessarily
imply "back to OEM factory specs." Just like NOS doesn't necessarily
mean MINT condition.
Sorry dude, restored implies it is restored to something resembling
what it once was. I say "resembling" because even if it looks as it
did when new the parts used most likely are not original.
Your '73 is a rebuilt and/or modified automobile, defiantly not
At a point putting money into rebuilding any car become lost if that
car is not unique in some maner, your '73 is not unique.
I noticed that there has been 2 sell lately and both together didn't
net $11,000. Of course they were not as nice looking as his but it may
be that the higher priced toy is not selling right now. I'm sure the
Corvette bargain hunters are out there and they will pick up a low
priced numbers car as a possible money maker if the market for that
ever comes back. All of the others on completed auctions (?) never met
reserve or didn't receive any bids/offers. Fleabay has long since
stopped being an auction and have become just an add site.
Yea. Maybe. I think you're talking semantics here. In my mind the
car is restored but maybe it's only rebuilt, upgraded or modified. I
don't think it didn't meet the reserve because I was calling a fully
rebuilt car - 'restored' as it seems that you're implying.
Regardless, it's clean, probably runs better than new. A very nice
Some of the original parts are also available with the car should the
buyer wish to return it to its original glory.
Like I said all along, Nice car.
Money is tight and even with it being a nice car that model has not
reached the higher prices as of yet
I have a 79
The bumper cars are higher priced
Some 74-81 go for as low as $2500 - barely drivers and nice ones I
have seen $16-17k
You need to find the right buyer and that takes time.
Basically IMHO if you spent the money on this car to make money , you
backed the wrong horse.
It is a nice car
Good luck and enjoy it
