So I got this guy on base who has a 73' corvette stingray and according to him it's a smallblock 350 with four on the floor. Now me personally I have never been much of a stingray fan,however,something tells me this just might be gold. So I'm asking to all my hotrod/stingray guys out there what could this potentially be ? He is asking $2400.00 o.b.o and says the motor was just build recently. He being a bike guy could really give to ****s about this car I being a car guy but already having a project on my hands I can't really afford another one. So what I'm asking is should I buy it and hold on to it or leave it alone as a 73 vette that needs some real loving ? :confused:

I have not seen any running anyyear,non wrecked Vette any cheaper. I have owned 4 Vettes including a 57. I do not know the current value of a 73. Hopefully,You will get some other feedback.Bud

What I will do today is get some pictures and see if cranks,otherwise you think it's worth it ? It's all in one piece and with simple fixes,brakes and fuel lines it will run and drive under it's own power...

$2,400 for a '73? Jump on it and resell it. But, that depends on what shape it's in.

Wow! I was born in Agana Heights, Guam. Cue "It's a small world".

even if it's so rusty it's literally falling apart (birdcage & frame) it's still worth more than that in parts alone if the car is complete.

Maybe, .If it was a 70 or earlier, I would say a definate yes..........mid 70s engine not worth much.....Maybe the parts are worth it, but if the frame is rotten, .............................Who knows?

all chrome bumpers are desireable and the 73 w/ just the chrome rears also, 74 + they start to go down in price rapidly. There are a lot more expensive parts on such a car than just the engine and transmission. If you ahve nice condition interior parts or discontinued pieces it adds up real quick.
