1973 Corvettes for sale

The 1973 Corvette was the sixth production year of the 1968 - 1982 "C3" generation. The 1973 corvette was the first corvette to feature a 5 mph front bumper. The front bumper was no longer a metal exterior construction. The new front bumper was really a molded urethane bumper cover painted to match the body. The 1973 corvette was quieter than all previous corvettes. A sound deadening materal was sprayed on body panels and a fiberglass pad was installed on the underside of the hood. This also decreased road noise. The vacuum operated wiper door was eliminated and replaced with a cowled hood design. The 1973 corvette also featured radial tires for the first time. The 1973 corvette did not have a removable rear window. Approximately 30,000 corvettes were produced in 1973. A Z07 was available in 1973.
