1973 Chevrolet Corvette Additional Info:

There are plenty of reasons to love a 1973 Chevrolet Corvette coupe. It's the only year for a body-colored front and a chrome rear; it has great flying buttress styling; and it's the 20th anniversary of the Corvette. But none of that is what's really grabbing your attention on this one. Instead, you're mesmerized by a speedy-looking custom that has an enhanced V8, four-on-the-floor, and that it's all available right now at an exceptional price.1973 was the year of the purist C3 Corvette. It was the only time Chevrolet offered the body-colored nose with the chrome bumperettes. In fact, legendary designer Larry Shinoda had said that this was his intentions for the C3 from the beginning (it just took them five years to get there.) This seems like the perfect showcase for a custom car like this. The urethane front end works exceptionally well with the taller cowl of the hood almost like the shark nose also now has a shark fin. The chrome of the rear bumper is nicely matched with the side pipes and stylized Centerline wheels. And we bet you've noticed the custom graphic on the rear panel. It not only looks great against the slick red paint, but also it's cool preview of the interior, too.Inside, the red of the exterior is now joined by a nicely coordinating tan. Those leather seats are not only the versatile units from later C3s, but also the custom pattern is similar to the one on the rear deck. So you'll especially love cruising with the T-tops out where everyone can see your custom coordinated total package. Plus, those seats fold to give you access to the custom rear panel that includes the amplifier and subwoofer that are part of a modern AM/FM/CD stereo package that's exceptionally crisp and even has an aux input for your iPod. And the upgrades don't end there. You have a full ground effects package you control from the center console, an anti-theft system, and even a radar detector, too. Plus, this one has extras like power windows and power locks. But even with all these features, this Corvette is still a driver's car at its heart. You'll love grabbing the cue ball shifter with your right hand, and the three-spoke sports steering wheel with your left. The dual pod readouts mean the all-important tachometer is large and directly in front of you. There's even a full set of Equus auxiliary gauges mounted on the hood for a clear and easy view of what's going on in the engine bay.You'll love opening the hood at car shows because the nicely coordinated red and chrome package on places like the air grabber and classic Corvette valve covers are sure to attract a crowd. And when you look beyond the style, you'll see the substance of a 327 cubic-inch small block that's been enhanced with go-fast goodies such as a Holley four-barrel carburetor, Weiand intake, aluminum radiator w/electric fan, MSD ignition, and Hooker headers. That last one also feeds those rumbling side pipes that provide this Corvette with added flair and a fierce soundtrack. You have complete control over this enhanced V8 and its symphony thanks to the four-speed manual transmission. Plus, features like power steering, four-wheel disc brakes, a fully independent suspension, and the grip of modern BF Goodrich gForce tires (especially those massive rear ones) give you a superior sports car handling in a custom vintage package.Complete with maintenance records, there has been a lot of time and money invested into making this one very cool Stingray. So if you hurry, the ultimate classic Corvette deal can be yours. Call today!!!
