MotoeXotica Classic Cars is pleased to present this 1973 Chevrolet Corvette Convertible. As an entry point into classic car collecting, this would be an ideal candidate.
Like almost all Corvettes made between 1954 and 1981, this car came off the line right here at GMs St. Louis, Missouri factory. Dressed in desirable Elkhart Green Metallic (code 947), the cars paint and trim are in overall average condition however, there are blemishes visible on the cars nose, passenger side fender, the hard tonneau behind the seats, at the right rear taillight and at the windshield frame. This Corvette is very presentable but not perfect.
The cars glass panels are in overall good shape and the passenger side window still bears the original Astro Ventilation logo. The cars lights are in satisfactory shape while overall, the cars body work is in great order. 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 forwardhinged hood is a 350 CID V8 engine (code L48) with a Rochester QuadraJet 4MV fourbarrel carburetor. Mated to the engine is a Turbo Hydramatic 400 threespeed automatic transmission. Driver convenience features include airconditioning, power steering and power fourwheel disc brakes.
Inside, the cars Medium Saddle vinyl interior (code 415) has new matching carpeting while the bucket seats are in very good order. A light switch knob is missing, the threespoke, wrapped steering wheel, inner door panels, instrument panel and center stack with full instrumentation all look good, however the tachometer is inoperable. The center console and shifter are in similar, satisfactory condition. Completing the interior is a factory AM/FM stereo.
Nineteen seventythree started the Corvettes 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 Corvettes 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 lightweight front bumper system with an inner transverse tube attached to the frame with two Omarkbolts (special steel fasteners which absorbed energy when a forming die, pushed back by the bumper, was forced down their length) and an injectionmolded 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 EType V12 Convertible, MercedesBenzs 450 SL and Porsches 911.
