You only live once! Up for your consideration is this ABSOLUTELY incredible 1973 Corvette. It is equipped with the Matching Numbers 454 Big Block Engine and 4 spd. Transmission. This beautiful Corvette is Completely restored to its original condition and only has 36000 original miles. There was no expense spared on this car. It gets an amazing amount of attention all the time. There is nothing on this car that has not been completely restored or new. It is absolutely a super nice SHOW QUALITY Corvette. The 454 cu in (7.4 L) LS-4 big-block V8 engine was offered delivering 275 hp (205 kW) and 15% of the cars were ordered so equipped. “454” emblems adorned the hood of big-block equipped Corvettes. All models featured a new cowl induction domed hood, which pulled air in through a rear hood intake into the engine compartment under full throttle, increasing power (but didn't show up in the horsepower ratings). 0-60 times were reduced by a second while keeping the engine compartment cooler. The new tire size was GR70-15 with white stripes or raised white letters optional. An aluminum wheel option was seen on 1973 and 1974 pilot cars, and a few 1973s were so equipped, but withheld for quality issues, and wouldn't be available until 1976. Road & Track magazine stated in a 1973 road test: "For all its age, size and compromises, if the Corvette is equipped with the right options it is a pleasant and rewarding car to drive and this 1973 example was one the best Corvettes we've ever driven." This beauty is equipped with Power Steering, AC, Disc Brakes and a 4 spd trans. The paint and body of this car is absolutely gorgeous and show quality and the perfect, Tan interior really adds an amazing yet subtle contrast to the exterior. The engine bay and under side of the Vette is as nice as the rest of the car.
