1973 Chevrolet Corvette 454ci T-Top Z codeThis 1973 Chevrolet Corvette is from the last few years for awesome big block power. So it's not only great that this has the numbers-matching 454 V8, but also it's showcased in a car that so sharp-looking. And this even has all the features you really want - from an A/C interior to four-on-the-floor.
This Stingray's bright red has a nice gloss that really brings out the curves when the sunshine finds this coupe. That's a good thing, because '73 was a distinctive year. The chrome bumper was replaced by form-fitting color-matched unit that integrated into the rest of the body almost seamlessly. This gave a whole new dimension to the car as the front end seemed to be the right fit with C3's well-creased silhouette. What also makes the '73 unique is that it's the only year with the new front, but retains the chrome in the rear. After all, an American classic like this deserves proper shine. It seems to make these extra desirable as the brightwork here coordinates nicely with the rockers, trim, and Rally wheels. And so when you see a crisp red coupe with plenty of shine, you know you're looking at timeless style.
The T-tops let you open this up to the world, and the factory-correct saddle tan interior makes for a timelessly attractive look against the red. It has a very clean and correct look that comes from proper care and making the right investments in in quality items when anything needed replacing. Plus, this coupe come with some nice features like power windows, power steering, an upgraded AM/FM digital tuner, and cold-blowing factory air conditioning. This is built to be a true driver's machine, and that's why you get bucket seats, a three-spoke sports steering wheel with tilt/telescopic, full auxiliary gauge panel at eye-level, and a large speedo and tach. And you just know that stick shift is perfect for resting your right hand.
Under the hood is what we all love to see - an engine bay filled with big block power. This is the numbers-matching 454 cubic-inch V8, and just like the rest of the car, you can tell they've made a solid investment here. Bright polished components, updated valve covers, and a bold orange make a tidy but strong statement about this powerhouse. We can understand exactly why there would be this much care in this coupe. With only 4,412 big blocks made, it was one of the rarest significant options taken in 1973, and the low odometer is even believed to reflect total actual mileage. More than just history, you're going to love driving this classic. The big block fires up nicely as it inhales deeply from the four-barrel carburetor, and it exhales with plenty of rumble out of the dual exhaust. You get complete control over this V8 with the numbers-matching Muncie M21 close-ratio four-speed manual transmission. And like any good Corvette, this is also ready for the backroads. After all, how many other 1970s machines offered big block power with the control of a fully independent suspension and four-wheel disc brakes?
This is the rare classic big block machine that you can enjoy driving and showing. And at a price like this, you know you're not the only one interested. Call now!
