One of our favorite C3 Corvettes, this 1973 L82 Corvette in Classic White performed really well in shows for the previous owner. We drove it home and you can feel a ton of power under the hood!
The last owner also provided us with receipts for some of the parts that were installed, which totals more than $5,300 not including labor and the paint job.
The original engine was bored 20 over and completely rebuilt with mild cam, pistons, cam bearings, a polished crank, resurfaced heads, valves, valve springs, rockers, oil pump, and timing chain and gears were also installed.
Other restoration, maintenance, and parts for this classic Corvette include: clutch and pressure plate, calipers, gas tank, radiator, heater core, complete weatherstrip kit, rebuilt power steering system, mufflers, belts and hoses, rebuilt distributer, tachometer cable, door handles, rebuilt parking brake assembly, headlight actuators, front control arm bushings, leather seat covers, seat foam, carpet, fiberglass front bumper, and more.
Other Specs: numbers matching, L82/350 engine, 50,000 miles on dash, 4spd transmission, deluxe black leather interior, power steering, power brakes, A/C, rally wheels, rear window defogger, luggage rack, original Delco AM/FM radio, original valve covers, original air cleaner assembly, original ignition shielding, completely detailed under hood, and much more.
1973 was the last year GM used chrome bumpers on Corvettes. GM only produced 5,710 L82’s in 1973 out of 30,464 Corvettes released. Only 12,537 were close and wide ratio 4spds in 1973, and only 4,412 with rear window defogger. 1973 marked the end of the chrome bumper corvette era with rear chrome bumpers going away in 1974 and being replaced by a rubber bumpers. The 1973 was a one-year-only body design. GM also did away with the vacuum operated wiper door this year in favor of a longer hood to hide the wipers, and dropped the removable back window in favor of a glue-in window.
