With its distinctive style, numbers-matching 454 V8, and a value price, this 1973 Chevrolet Corvette hits all the right notes when you want big power without breaking the bank.
The 1973 Stingray was a distinctive year. The chrome bumper was replaced by a form-fitting color-matched unit that integrated into the rest of the body almost seamlessly. This gave a whole new dimension to the car as the shaper front end seemed to be the right fit with C3's well-creased silhouette. What also .....
makes the '73 unique is that it's the only year with the new front, but retains the chrome in the rear. After all, an American classic like this deserves proper shine. It seems to make these extra desirable as the brightwork here coordinates nicely with the rockers, trim, and Rally wheels. It's all set against the right application of factory-correct Medium Blue. The finish has a nice overall shine to show off the well-fitting panels, and at the same time, it's nothing too fancy that will make you hesitate to enjoy this big block classic to the fullest.
The T-tops let you open this up to the world, and the blue interior makes for a distinctive package against the blue exterior. There's plenty of originality inside, and that includes the features, too. That's why you have provisions for the Delco AM/FM radio and factory air conditioning (they will need servicing to function again.) This is built to be a true driver's machine, and that's why you get bucket seats, a three-spoke sports steering wheel, a full auxiliary gauge panel at eye level, and a large speedo and tach.
Under the hood is what we all love to see - an engine bay filled with big block power. This is the numbers-matching 454 cubic-inch V8, and if you take a closer look, you'll see this tidy setup is also part of an enhanced power package. It includes a Holley four-barrel carburetor, a Holley intake, and long tube headers feeding into the dual exhaust. The TH400 three-speed automatic transmission is a stout unit that provides easy shifting, and it feeds a Positraction rear end for a good all-around driver. You'll even notice some newer tune-up items and front bushings to keep this a solid cruiser. And the fully independent suspension, power steering, and four-wheel disc brakes are all there as part of a classic that maximizes the fun from day one.
This is the classic big block machine that you can enjoy driving. And at a price like this, you know you're not the only one interested. Don't miss out, call today!
