Although the Chassis and most parts were carried over from the previous year C-3, a few of the differences that GM boasted for the 1973 Corvette were a smoother and quieter ride offering radial tires as standard. Also new was a re-designed nose and lighting system for safety. They were trying to get away from the muscle car theme and enter in to the grand touring car market, largely in part to the oil and gas issues of the time.

The obvious other changes were lack of large horse-power options for 73. They offered 2 different 350 CI engine options for this year. The first one, like offered here today is the L-48 offering 190HP and the L-82 offering 250 HP, both a dramatic decrease of the previous years.

Road and Track Magazine did state in the road test for that year that the it was equipped with the right options and is a pleasant and rewarding car to drive and was the best to date.

Steel bumpers were also on their way out and the 1973 model would be the last to see them.

The car offered here has had a re-paint some time ago and is considered a driver quality car. It starts, runs and drives nicely. This would be a good candidate for a restoration or drive as-is. The C-3 Corvettes have started to see an increase in collectability and value, so this would be a good time to get your hands on one before they are out of reach.
