This matching numbers '73 was the only year that the Corvette was offered with the "older" rear and "newer" front nose body...built right here in good 'ol St. Louis. The Chevrolet Corvette (C3) is a sports car that was produced by Chevrolet 1968 through 1982. The C3 is the third generation of the Chevrolet Corvette. 1973 started Corvette's transformation from muscle to touring sports car. A Chevrolet advertisement headlined: "We gave it radials, a quieter ride, guard beams and a "nose job". Indeed, redesigned body mounts and radial tires did improve Corvette's ride, and interior sound levels. The chrome rear bumper was essentially carried over from the previous year. However, the chrome blade front bumper was dropped for a light-weight front bumper system with a injection-molded urethane bumper cover. Presented in the original Corvette only color Dark Blue Metallic (Code 27), the professional quality paint job with only shows minor imperfections visible upon close inspection and still shows extremely well even today. The body matching T-tops have an excellent fit and finish. The chrome split rear bumpers have an excellent fit and finish that show brilliantly. The front bumper cover fits well only a few minor imperfections. All trim pieces are present and have a brilliant finish with no dents. The weather stripping is still very pliable, with little or no drying, tearing or shrinkage Paint and body are exceptional with very little visible evidence of stress or damage that we could find. The 15-inch original equipment wheel present well with little or no marring. Inside, the gorgeous rich dark Blue (Code 413) vinyl seats all look great with no major signs of wear visible.
