This 1973 Corvette Coupe has two removable and stowable t-tops, converting it into an open two seater. Even though there is no roof when the two tops are removed, this Coupe is a safer alternative in the event of a rollover than a Convertible. Furthermore, with the Coupe versus the Convertible, there is no cowl shake or bending chassis over road ruts or dividers making for a very stiff chassis when you choose the Coupe configuration over the Convertible.The 1973 model year is the only year with the urethane 5 mph front bumper and rear chrome bumpers.
It has a numbers matching 454 cubic inch LS4 engine(275 NET BHP with 395 NET Foot Pounds of Torque) and M21 Muncie 4 speed. Less than 300 1973 Corvettes were built with the 454 cubic inch engine and the Muncie 4 speed.

Net horsepower and torque ratings started being quoted by manufacturers in 1972. Prior to 1972, they were quoted as Gross Horsepower (GHP) and were much higher ratings because, when tested, no ancillary items such as air-conditioning, alternator, power steering and anti-pollution pumps were hooked up to the engines.
