Just discovered a red C3 ragtop that's just come up for sale. WAY out in country at a home I pass by several times weekly, I see a "NEW" red w/ black top & interior C3 ... no tags. I stop & ask ... find that homeowner's daughter (from Charleston SC) has left it with Dad to get rid of. I suspect it may be a "distress" sale. Since I'm COMPLETELY tapped out from Christmas, I did not check numbers/VIN/papers ... but Mom swears the papers say it is a 1973. Well it has two chrome bumpers, eggcrate-grilles in fenders but has small round front turn signal lenses in grille. It has 69 up doors (w/ NO buttons). It's clearly not an original 73 ... but maybe one that has a 68-72 front clip. It has a wiper door. BTW, it has a BB hood (not L88) and console plate ... I'm told it has a small block Target in the bay ... it has a 4-speed. Car needs at least paint, a top & interior. Now it's begun to snow & they've left the window down & torn top ... BUT no tarp/cover. I have not looked under the hood or elsewhere. Dad (who is car-savvy ... seems not interested in vettes) says it'd be about $8K. Little consequence to me, I'm tapped out anyway.
