The engine bay is tidy, the cargo area behind the seats is satisfactory, theres an external, chrome luggage rack for additional storage and the cars bumpers fit well to the body. The undercarriage looks to be very solid.The car rolls on Firestone Firehawk white letter radials, size 255/60R15 at all four corners and each tire is wrapped around a slotted Rallye wheel. The tires show their age but the wheels are in good order.Under the forward-hinged hood is a 350 CID V-8 engine (code L48) with a Rochester Quadra-Jet 4MV four-barrel carburetor.

The center console and shifter are in similar, satisfactory condition. Completing the interior is a factory AM/FM stereo.Nineteen seventy-three started the Corvette's transformation from muscle to touring sports car. A Chevrolet advertisement headlined: We gave it radials, a quieter ride, guard beams and a nose job.Indeed, redesigned body mounts andradial tiresdid improve Corvette's ride, and interior sound levels were reduced by 40 percent. The chrome rear bumper carried over from the previous year. However, the chrome blade front bumper was dropped for the federally required fivemph standard for a light-weight front bumper system with an inner transverse tube attached to the frame with two Omark-bolts (special steel fasteners which absorbed energy when a forming die, pushed back by the bumper, was forced down their length) and an injection-molded urethane bumper cover. Engineers chose the urethane nose was chosen over the alternative, a more protruding version of the previous metal bumper. The new urethane bumper assembly added 35 pounds to the front end. Other changes included a domed hood and a fixed rear window, which provided additional interior storage space.Competition to this Chevrolet in 1973 included Datsuns 240Z, Excaliburs Series II Roadster, Jaguars E-Type V12 Convertible, Mercedes-Benzs 450 SL and Porsches 911.If youre a novice collector looking for your first classic sports car or if youre a Vetteophile looking for a new ride, come by Mot Xotica Classic Cars today to check this one out.This car is currently located at our facility in St. Louis, Missouri.
