For Sale: 1973 Chevrolet Corvette in Fairmont City, Illinois


Vehicle Description

Up for sale in our Houston showroom is a gorgeous white 1973 Chevrolet Corvette with a 454 V8 with dual exhausts manual transmission with only 51,000 miles on it. The 1973 Chevrolet Corvette was the first "Rubber Bumper" Vette. The front chrome bumper was replaced with a federally mandated 5 MPH bumper. It added 35 pounds to the car and changed it's 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. During production of the 1973 model year 4,000 serial numbers were skipped. VIN numbers 24,001 through 28,000 were never manufactured. A new hood was introduced that featured cold air induction and removed the automatic panel that hid the windshield wipers. A vent in the hood by the windshield wipers provided cold outside air for the engine to injest. The new ducts on the sides behind the front wheels were non-trimmed and consist styling. It was the first year for radial tires on a Vette. Increased sound insulation was added to make the ride more comfortable. A new coolant recycling system recovered overheated coolant into a overflow container for cooling. This coolant was then recycled back into the radiator. The rear window of the '73 coupe was now fixed. It had been decided that taking out the window with the t-tops off caused too much turbulence in the cabin. This 1973 Chevrolet Corvette is a very well optioned vehicle and includes Power brakes, Power steering, Power windows, A/C and its a convertible with a 454 and a 4-speed! For more information on this well optioned Stingray, call our Houston showroom at 832-243-6220 or stop by for a closer look. TO view HD photos and video, visit
