Corvette Description

1973 Chevrolet Corvette

Gateway Classic Cars of Atlanta is proud to represent this well kept 1973 Chevrolet Corvette! The Chevrolet Corvette (C3) is a sports car that was produced by Chevrolet for the 1968 to 1982 model years. Engines and chassis components were mostly carried over from the previous generation, but the body and interior were new. The C3 is the third generation of the Chevrolet Corvette, and marks the second time the Corvette would carry the Stingray name. Model year 1973 started 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." The chrome rear bumper was essentially carried over from the previous year; however, the chrome blade front bumper was dropped for the federally required 5 mph urethane bumper cover. The base L-48 engine produced 190 HP. The L-82 was introduced as the optional high performance small-block engine and delivered 250 HP. This particular 1973 example is finished in Red paint over Black Vinyl interior. Under the hood, the 5.7L, 350ci V8 backed by a 3-speed Turbo HydraMatic automatic transmission. With the rising price of classics, the facelift year with the highly desirable early style rear bumper will continue to appreciate! Recent work includes a brake and power steering overhaul, and this 1973 example comes from a long-term ownership of 25+ years! Enjoy cruising in one of the most iconic muscle cars of its time while behind the wheel of this 1973 Corvette!
