'73 Barn Find...

Interesting original '73 vert. I have never seen seats like this. Looks like the real deal.

Whoa! That's a new kind of special. Never seen something like that either.

What a nice car! Very interesting to see for how much it will sell ! The photo's are perfect as well for my restoration project. At least I know now how certain parts used to look like....

Nice looking car, to bad the dealer puked on the seats though.

Besides the claimed low mileage (which I have no reason to doubt at this time based on my observations), the seats are the main draw to this car. Not my taste, but an awesome reflection of the early '70s styling and thinking. It is an awesome find and if I had the space would be added to my stable...

Blast from the past for sure! Just keep in mind it's 1973 and your in California. Those seats were what Cheech & Chong would have labeled "Far Out Man"! Other than the Dealer Installed seats, car looks to be an original straight car. Would be nice to capture some of those under hood shots for reference. Be interesting to see where the price goes on this one since it is a no reserve car.

Neat car, and I'm 53 so the seats don't bother me too much. I think my parents had a couch like that when I was a kid. This is a time capsule survivor type of car, which I'm assuming means no repaints. Should the black on the rockers go up to the door sills? I want to say "no" but I'm not sure if this is a '73 thing. The whole dirty car in overloaded garage with old man "barn find" picture seems very staged, but who am I to say. It sat in the garage since '83 yet there are no leaks? I'm just a skeptic by nature with these sorts of things. Nice to see the 302-2V / 3 speed manual drivetrain still in place.

Impressive. I really want to believe this is all legit. Seats upholstery added as we all agree. I think the shifter ball is not original. It should be the plain black one. I have saved every pic. Great reference - especially like the hood blackout. Would love to see invoice and Marti report!
