In 1953, Chevrolet introduced their swansong performance and luxury two-seater. Named after the Corvette class of small and agile warships, this American sweetheart is still going strong in 2022, and on the eighth generation. It’s a poster car in many an American child’s bedroom or wallpaper on their smartphone. What we’ve got here is a 1973 Chevrolet Corvette Coupe from Pennsylvania with actual mileage unknown that needs some minor, thus making an ideal project car as well as a learning tool. It could be a great way to bond with your kids as well, teach them what the great cars from yesteryear are like.
This 1973 Chevrolet Corvette Coupe belongs to the C3 or third generation that saw a production run span from 1968 to 1982. The C3 brought a new styling language to the nameplate, and saw the return of the Stingray badge. Wearing a nice coat of red that’s reportedly a recent paint job, it looks suitably eye-catching, and those pop-up headlamps that are reportedly functional could make you lovingly gaze at them for days! New wheels and BF Goodrich Radial T/A tires have also been installed. The seller discloses that there is some frame rust to be addressed. All badges and chrome work appear to be in place, including the two shiny exhaust tips out the rear. The windscreen wipers reportedly work as well. The black interior has worn well through the ages and still looks eye-catching with its two black leather semi bucket seats facing a three-spoke steering wheel and wood-trimmed dash. The original gauges are in place as well, and the stereo system is actually a Retro Sound unit that offers modern iPhone connectivity as well. An auxiliary RPM gauge appears to be installed as well. The door cards feature wood trim that still looks good for its age, as well as chromed window winders.
This 1973 Chevrolet Corvette is powered by the automaker’s famous 350ci (5.7L) small-block V8 that put out 195hp and 270 lb-ft for 1973, strangled in part due to the new emissions regulations. It sends drive to the rear wheels via a three-speed Turbo Hydramatic automatic transmission.
