Real nice to see a "deluxe" in excellent condtion. Dash doesnt even look to be cracked. Manual brakes but has dual horn.

Wow, that car is clean -- great base for a project. Would that I had the time and space, as it's just south of me.

Very clean car! It'd be nice to keep original, but a 307-2bbl was terrible for '73. A friend of mine had one in a '73 Pontiac Ventura and it could barely get out of it's own way. Couldn't image how'd it be in the heavier Chevelle.

I'd just put some 3.73 out back and it'll move nice. Leave everything else stock.

How about that Chevy Citation sitting next to it?  I was one of the unfortunate victims of unscrupulous marketing by GM and bought one of those POS's.  They were supposed to be the latest and greatest in scaled-down family/commuter cars with their front wheel drive and fuel economy.  They duped the major car magazines by providing test cars with enhanced suspension/braking systems in order to get rave reviews.  Of course, the production cars didn't come with either.  Plus, GM dodged a civil lawsuit because of their propensity to develop large rust spots randomly all over the car.  Big A$$ blisters in the middle of a door panel, roof, hatch, hood, etc.  I took meticulous care of mine at the time and, after 5-6 yrs, it looked like it had a pox.  You were lucky to get 50K miles on the original CV joints, inner tie rods, struts and wheel brgs.  To this day, I've never bought another Chevy (except for the '77 Monte Carlo and '75/'76 Lagunas) because of this stunt.    To see one in pristine condition like this one is a rarity...and, I'd bet it was rarely driven.

Those Citations (X bodied GM Cars) were nasty vehicles. Higher price for fwd junk. And the awful 60 degree V-6. The Iron Duke was the better engine. The styling looked as if was largely inspired by the 78-79 Malibu.
