If you\'re looking for a really powerful T-Top Corvette, then this 1973 vette in Medium Blue is a great choice! It\'s got a 454 with approximately 425 hp engine and close ratio 4spd transmission, giving you a lot of control with a lot of power. This big block corvette was sold new at William H Porter Inc in Newark Delaware.
The last owner had this C3 Corvette for over 26 years, and it has been very well-maintained and garage-kept. He had the original motor and transmission completely rebuilt to make this classic Corvette a true performance car. He also kept an extremely detailed log for the car and extensive list of receipts for upgrades done.

We also had a complete base-coat/clear-coat paint job done.
The last owner had the following work done: original engine was completely rebuilt with compression up to at least 9:1, balanced and blue printed, transmission rebuilt. Also replaced radiator, clutch, pressure plate, throw-out bearing, motor mounts, polyurethane control arm bushings, trailing arm bushings, strut rod bushings, ball joints, and much more.
Other Specs: numbers matching, M21 close ratio 4 speed manual transmission, power steering, power brakes, A/C, tilt & telescopic steering column, rear window defogger, Retro Sound AM/FM/USB/MP3 radio, rally wheels, power windows, black leather interior, original air cleaner, chrome valve covers, original intake, original ignition shielding, original shifter, 3.368 posi rear end, and much more.
