    Why? Were there that many fewer 1973s? Or, does no one want to own a 73?

    I see 'em on there alot. Well, I guess alot is a relative term. I usally go around ebay about once a week. once of my regular searches is (1973.73) (chev*,gm*) (blazer,jimmy,pu,pick*,truck), in the right column appears a filter to show only vehicles, I usally pick that just for fun because I have 2 '73's, and there is usally at least 1 there (but not always), sometimes 4 or 5.

    I don't know about E Bay but I've noticed the same thing in general it seems like there are far fewer 73-75 than earlier or later models.

    Funny, since I got a 75 I seem to see more of them. I think I know of at least 4 more 73-75's in my town. Plus the local boneyard has 4 of them sitting there.

    In the grand totals of production of 73-91, sure the 73-75 trucks are going to be a smaller percentage of the overall 18 year production run. Even if they made the same number every one of those years (which they didn't), it would still only be 16% of the total 18 year run.

    Still, they are getting scarce. Even more so when the sheet-metal butchers (meant in the best way possible! :laugh: ) start cutting the windsheild frames off of the 73-75's to install on a 76-91.....

    Maybe it's because the people buying them are keeping them. I know if I had one I'd keep it. No emmissions on a project truck would be perfect, plus a full convertible. Hmmm, maybe I'll be looking for one in a few years when I get bored tinkering with the Burb. Hope there are still enough around.
