Car history:
09/16/2014
Originally low-key Elkhart Green, this Corvette was treated to a full respray in
vivid Mille Miglia Red, and the effect is just as appealing as you'd think. A new
nose differentiated the '73s from the earlier models and the chrome front
bumperettes were gone, giving it the look that Larry Shinoda would later reveal
was the Corvette team's intention all along. It isn't perfect and doesn't need
constant fussing, which is just how most guys like their Corvettes. Yes, it's got a
few nicks here and there, but you'd be better served thinking of them as badges
of honor rather than defects. This car is driven and used as intended. Panel fit is
to factory specs and the paint has a great shine that really shows up well in the
sun. A shiny chrome luggage rack on the rear deck adds some useful practicality,
and the chrome rear bumpers and shiny stainless rocker trim provide contrast to
all that bright red paint.


Inside it carries a correct saddle interior, which is its factory-issued color. The
seats have been re-covered using recent leather covers that look right in the
early '70s 'Vette, and matching door panels remain in very good condition. The
gauges are original and show clean markings and only very minor fading, which
suggests that this car has always been properly stored, and the deep-pile carpets,
which are also likely original, seem to defy the decades thanks to a set of matching
floor mats. Options include factory air-conditioning, power windows, and a tilt
steering column, and a newer AM/FM/cassette stereo head unit was swapped into
the center stack for cruising. Weather protection consists of a nice-fitting tan
convertible top that really offers a pleasing contrast with the red paint, especially
since most Corvettes of this vintage used plain old white or black.


The engine is a rebuilt 350 cubic inch V8 that enjoyed quite a few upgrades when
it was installed a few years ago. Making an estimated 300 horsepower, it's a lot
more entertaining than the low-performance smog-choked 1973 powerplant, yet
remains instantly recognizable as a small block Chevy. A chrome air cleaner and
matching valve covers dress it up a bit and an aluminum intake and Edelbrock 4-
barrel carburetor help build horsepower the traditional way. The TH400 3-speed
automatic transmission is plenty robust for the warmed-over small block and cracks
off sharp shifts when you're running hard, yet remains unobtrusive when you're
trundling around town. A brand new exhaust system includes mellow mufflers and
correct tips under the rear bumpers and the underside of the car looks great for a
car in this price range. Correct Rally wheels with shiny stainless trim rings wear
225/70/15 Goodyear Eagle radials that are exactly the right size.
