1973 Green on Tan Coupe





Vehicle Description

1973 CORVETTE, WAS THE WINNER OF THE 2001 BLOOMINGTON GOLD SURVIVOR AWARD. This award is only honored for a Corvette that passes four categories to qualify it for being in the best interest of historic research not to be restored. To meet these qualifications the car must be non restored and all original in 4 categories 1) Exterior 2) interior 3) under the hood and 4) chassis. I have the judging form filled out by Bloomington Gold and the certificate issued by Bloomington Gold for this cars documentation that it was a survivor award winner. The Vin Pad is # 418503 The Date Suffix is V0227 CLR and the date Codes are B203 and the Paint Code is 945 (Blue-Green) with an Interior Code of 422 (Dark Saddle Leather) the car is all original paint of course and for a 30-year plus old car it is mint. . No major scratches or other body issues. There is some surface rust on the passenger inside door panel. And some minor cracks in the door panel on the corners. But as you can see by the pictures this Corvette is definitely mint for being un restored and all original. There are some issues though. The brakes need to be pumped while driving and would need servicing, the A/C does not work from being stored for the last few years and the exhaust has a small leak (sounds like a pipe joint but not sure) Beside that the car runs and drives excellent! The engine is quite with no noises and the trans, clutch, steering and gauges, lights etc work great. If your looking for a true collectable with the best documentation for original un restored this is the car! It is still owned by the same family that took it to the Bloomington Gold Survivor Awards in 2001.The car had 55,630 miles on the odometer on 6/23/2001 when it competed and won. The odometer now reads 61,867 miles.
