Corvettes is very hot right now and on the rise, this is especially
true for the 1973 model year as it was a one year only body style.

The 1973 Corvette was truly the end of an era. 1973 was the last
year to feature a chrome bumper and is considered by some to be the
last year of truly classic Corvettes. Model years after were more
at the mercy of insurance companies, fuel prices, and emission
concerns, 1973 is considered the last "good" year by many
enthusiasts. The 1973 model year is also considered a special and
different year for Corvette enthusiasts as it was the only model to
have chrome in the back and a rubber bumper in the front. It is
representative of the transition Corvette was making at the time.
As in investment, the 1973 will always have an advantage and out
perform other years because of its precedence as the end of a a
very great period for Corvette and muscle cars as a whole.
The classic white exterior is in excellent driver condition. As one
can see in the photos, the finish has dazzling gloss, deep shine,
and smooth finish. Both doors open and shut nicely. The chrome and
other bright look great with a brilliant finish and no pitting or
cloudiness. The wheels and center caps are in excellent condition.
The BF Goodrich raised white letter tires have about 80% tread
left. There are a few very tiny blemishes and bumps around car that
were too small to show up in pictures, but nothing else that is
really noticeable from about five feet away. As one can see in the
many photos of the underside and in the video this car is very
clean underneath. The frame is totally solid around the "key hole"
area in front of the rear tire and we have seen no evident of
corrosion around the windshield or "birdcage" area, which is the
most common spots for rust on a C3 Corvette. We have included
specific photos of the areas most prone to rust to show how nice
this car looks.
Window Date Codes
Please note almost all of the glass on this Corvette, both "Astro
Ventilation" door windows and the rear window are original as each
piece predates the car's body build date of September 1, 1972
(B01). Original glass is a good indication that this car has had no
major accident history and never sustained significant damage.
The Black interior of the Corvette is in spectacular condition. The
seats are in fantastic condition with no splits, rips, or excessive
wear. The carpet is in also in "like new" condition with no stains
or rips. This includes the rear carpet, which is often neglected.
The gauge faces are clean and crisp and the lenses are clear. The
dash and console are in great shape with no fading or sun damage.
The door panels look very nice with some small cracks in the
typical area where the driver's elbow sits. The jack and spare tire
are still with the car. This Corvette has never been smoked in;
there are no burns marks and no aroma of cigarettes. Corvette
interiors from this era are not known to wear well and the
excellent condition of this interior is a huge testament to the
meticulous care and attention this car has received throughout its
This Corvette seems to be in very good mechanical condition. The
engine starts right away every time, runs well, and idles smooth.
It drives great and feels nice on the road and at highway speeds.
In the video below one can observe the car accelerating on the
highway up to about 70mph, shifting through all the gears, braking
to stoplight, and going through some curves. Please note that there
are no vibrations or strange noises and the car performs quite well
overall. The brakes are responsive and do not pull to one side or
the other. The transmission shift well throughout the power band.
The car runs cool and does not overheat. The gauge shows that the
engine makes great oil pressure. Also, the engine compartment is
beautifully clean and detailed as one can see in the photos.
The horn works as do all the exterior lights, dash lights, power
windows, wipers, and radio. The entire vacuum system for the
headlights and wiper door works properly from both their respective
switches on the dash and the override switches. The entire
operation from both switches can be viewed in the video. The a/c
and blower for the heater do not work. Not enough can be said as to
how much of a pleasure it is to drive this car, especially with the
T-Tops out on a beautiful day.
Overall, this 1973 Corvette looks fantastic. The value of third
generation Corvettes has increased dramatically in recent times;
this is especially true for the 1973 model year. They are solid and
wise investments for a collector. 1973 was a very special and one
year only body style for Corvette that is always recognizable with
the newer and smoother front end treatment with the classic chrome
bumpers on the back. While this is not an NCRS Top Flight or
Bloomington Gold car, it is a very nice driver quality Stingray and
a great car for the money. One could easily enjoy this vehicle for
several years and sell it for more than the purchase price with
