Ours has the base L-48 engine that produced 190 horsepower and looks as stock as it did when it was new with the factory cowl induction black factory air cleaner, orange painted block, heads, valve covers, and intake, 4-barrel carb, cast iron factory exhaust manifolds, factory chrome shielded electronics and distributer, factory hoses, air conditioning, power steering, and sitting in a stock looking engine compartment.
All the gases go out the rear via a dual exhaust system, it is backed by a 4-speed transmission, and the Corvette rides on correct factory Rallye wheels with BF Goodrich Radial TA tires.
A lot of new parts went into this Corvette including a front end rebuilt with new Bushings, Tie rods, Springs, Alignment, and new tires (all 4, rebuilt stereo radio, new floor matts, refurbished engine bay, new radiator, rebuilt AC, new water pump, oil pump, timing gear, rear end, new leaf spring, bushings, shocks, and serviced brakes.
The like-new saddle twin bucket seat interior looks factory stock with the correct factory appointments like gauges, seat belts, center console, chrome 4-speed shifter, Corvette AM/FM stereo radio system, factory dash, map holder, air conditioning, matching door panels, and Corvette tan flag floor mats.
The 1973 Chevrolet Corvette was the first “Rubber Bumper” Vette. The front chrome bumper was replaced with a federally mandated 5 MPH bumper that changed its looks significantly.
This is the only year that a rubber front bumper and chrome rear bumper were used at the same time. A new side brace was added as well to increase safety. This was also the last year for the small spoiler at the back of the car.
As stated earlier, the bright red paint makes this Corvette an attention getter. The 1973 hood features cold air induction and removes the automatic panel that hid the windshield wipers. A vent in the hood by the windshield wipers provided cold outside air for the engine also. The new ducts on the sides behind the front wheels were non-trimmed and consist of just one large hole and some body styling.
It has T-tops, great chrome and trim, large rectangular exhaust tips, and has a great presentation.
The time capsule of a 1973 Chevrolet Corvette we have at Skyway Classics will be an attention getter wherever you drive it to and will have the additional power and great handling to challenge you as a driver to drive it as it should be driven.
