1973 marked an important year in the development of the Corvette.
Chevrolet made the decision to focus on touring comfort, in
addition to performance, hoping to widen the appeal of the Corvette
for easier daily driving. Adding redesigned body mounts and radial
tires, the car's interior sound levels were drastically reduced. A
redesigned nose with injection molded bumper, gave the car car a
sleeker appearance. Road and Track, in '73, stated that the
Corvette, when equipped right, "is a pleasant and rewarding car to
drive and this 1973 was one of the best Corvettes we've ever
driven." Chevrolet offered several engine variants in '73. The most
powerful, first offered in 1973, was the 454 cubic inch 7.4L LS-4
V8 big block. Pushing 275hp, only 15% of the Corvettes in 1973 were
ordered with the 454.
This Blue-Green '73 Corvette is an outstanding car that went
through an extensive restoration. Sold with binders full of
receipts detailing the money spent on the restoration, this car
shows that nothing was overlooked. All around the exterior, the
blue-green paint shows great and is complimented by a beautiful
medium saddle interior. Pop off the T-Tops, and the car is ready to
cruise in the sun. Under the hood, the LS-4 454vi V8 is a rocket
and pushes this Corvette faster than any C3 before it. The 4-speed
manual transmission seamlessly flows through the gears, while you
enjoy the comfort of it's factory air conditioning. The car's
original tank sticker was discovered and salvaged during the
restoration and is also included with the vehicle. The previous
owner declared that the approximately 74,200 miles on the odometer
are original, as is represented on the title.
