Corvettes on eBay: Kelsey Grammer’s 1973 Corvette

Corvettes on eBay: Kelsey Grammer's 1973 Corvette

This 1973 red Corvette doesn’t really seem like the kind of car that Kelsey Grammer would drive.

But then again, Grammer was just portraying that snob Fraiser Crane on Cheers all those years.

According to an ad on eBay trying to sell this Corvette, the owner bought it from Grammer in 2003 and has stored it in a temperature controlled garage at his Woodland Hills, California home, ever since.

The owner doesn’t provide much more information, though he does claim to start the car once a week and drive it once a month. He says the Corvette is in “mint” condition and that it has traveled just 9,000 miles since a restoration.

Photos on the ad site do indeed appear to show a very nice C3 Corvette. The ad also says that the car has a 350 motor and a manual transmission.

Unlike the Cheers bar, we’re not sure if everyone would know your name if you bought this Corvette, but you might enjoy 15 minutes of fame in your neighborhood as you motor around, stopping long enough to brag that Frasier used to own it.

By the way, the bidding had climbed to $14,000 as of Wednesday morning, Oct. 30, with two days left. If you’re an impatient soul, you can buy the car now for $20,000.
