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%. Most notable however, is 1973 marked the last year of the Big Block 454, Corvettes largest displacement that was introduced to the model in 1970 and gained it legendary status.
The 1973 Chevrolet Corvette BIG BLOCK 454 offered here is an all-around excellent example presented in red over a black leather interior. The car comes nicely optioned with power windows, power brakes, power steering, air conditioning, AM/FM radio, automatic transmission, T-tops, tilt steering wheel column, chrome luggage rack. The car appears to be numbers matching. The owner of the car completely restored the car over the last 4 years, giving it a new interior, new paint, new tie rods and shocks. According to the owner, the engine has been rebuilt and was bored .30 over.
3rd generations corvettes are iconic and excellent cars to own and invest in. The car offered here has it all: Big Block, T-top, great mechanicals, a most excellent color combination and the miles are believed to be original. A value and an investment at the price offered here.
