Although the Chassis and many parts were carried over from the previous C3 Corvette, 1973 offered some significant firsts and lasts as the Corvette began a transition from a pure sports car to the Grand Touring genre. 1973 marked the last year for the chrome rear bumper, but the first year for the integrated endura style front bumper that also held a much higher safety rating. 1973 was also the first year for several improvements to ride quality and comfort that included interior noise levels being cut by 40%.
