We also rebuilt the carburetor.
1973 marked the end of the chrome bumper corvette era with rear chrome bumpers replaced by a rubber bumper in 1974. 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.
