1973 marked an important year in the development of the Corvette. Chevrolet made the decision to focus on touring comfort, in addition to performance, hoping to widen the appeal of the Corvette for easier daily driving. Adding redesigned body mounts and radial tires, the car’s interior sound levels were drastically reduced. A redesigned nose with injection molded bumper, gave the car car a sleeker appearance. Road and Track, in ’73, stated that the Corvette, when equipped right, “is a pleasant and rewarding car to drive and this 1973 was one of the best Corvettes we’ve ever driven.” Chevrolet offered several engine variants in ’73. The most powerful, first offered in 1973, was the 454 cubic inch 7.4L LS-4 V8 big block. Pushing 275hp, only 15% of the Corvettes in 1973 were ordered with the 454.

This Blue-Green ’73 Corvette is an outstanding car that went through an extensive restoration. Sold with binders full of receipts detailing the money spent on the restoration, this car shows that nothing was overlooked. All around the exterior, the blue-green paint shows great and is complimented by a beautiful medium saddle interior. Pop off the T-Tops, and the car is ready to cruise in the sun. Under the hood, the LS-4 454vi V8 is a rocket and pushes this Corvette faster than any C3 before it. The 4-speed manual transmission seamlessly flows through the gears, while you enjoy the comfort of it’s factory air conditioning. The car’s original tank sticker was discovered and salvaged during the restoration and is also included with the vehicle. The previous owner declared that the approximately 74,200 miles on the odometer are original, as is represented on the title.
