Ours has the base L-48 engine that produced 190 horsepower and looks as stock as it did when it was new with the addition of an open element air cleaner. It has a set of chrome valve covers, aluminum intake, 4-barrel carb, tubular headers, updated electronics, air conditioning, power steering, power brakes, and sitting in a stock looking engine compartment.

All the gases go out the rear via a dual exhaust system, it is backed by a 3-speed automatic transmission, and the Corvette rides on correct factory Rallye wheels with black sidewall tires.


The black bucket seat interior looks like it did from the factory with the correct factory appointments like gauges, seat belts, center console, chrome shifter, Corvette AM/FM stereo radio system, factory dash, map holder, woodgrain everywhere, air conditioning, matching door panels, Corvette floor mats, and black carpeting.


The 1973 Chevrolet Corvette was the first "Rubber Bumper" Vette. The front chrome bumper was replaced with a federally mandated 5 MPH bumper that changed its looks significantly.

This is the only year that a rubber front bumper and chrome rear bumper were used at the same time. A new side brace was added as well to increase safety. This was also the last year for the small spoiler at the back of the car.

As stated earlier, the bright red paint makes this Corvette an attention getter. The custom hood looks great and attracts a lot of attention and also it removes the automatic panel that hid the windshield wipers. Vents in the hood and by the windshield wipers provide cold outside air for the engine also.

The new ducts on the sides behind the front wheels were non-trimmed and consist of just one large hole and some body styling. It has T-tops, great chrome and trim, large rectangular exhaust tips, and has a great presentation.


The bright red 1973 Chevrolet Corvette we have at Skyway Classics will be an attention getter wherever you drive it to and will have the additional power and great handling to challenge you as a driver to drive it as it should be driven.
