Back in 1973, due to intense pressure from insurance companies and the infamous fuel shortage, Chevrolet started to implement some drastic changes when it came to appearance and performance.  First of all, it seemed that it was very expensive to replace a damaged Chrome bumper, so the first step was to replace the coveted front bumper with a "plastic" or polyurethane cover.  This created a unique look for  this model year with only one Chrome bumper on the rear.   Performance also suffered since engines had to comply with more stringent emissions.  

Nevertheless, the 1973 models have a particular spot in the Corvette lineup and are now being sought after as as the next best thing after the "Bumper Cars" of 1968-1972... 

This particular model has recently received a new paintjob which is looking very good, with only two notable imperfections as seen in the pics.  

It has new seat covers, foam, front and back new carpet, new brake console, new dash pad cover.   Deluxe (factory upgrade) door panels appear to be original and still in good shape.  All gauges and instruments are functional, except clock... AC is fully functional an blows cold.

Power comes from the optional L82 engine, original to the car with the proper matching numbers visible on the engine pad and block.  It has Power Steering, Power Brakes.  Power steering box and rod is new.  Undercarriage is very clean as seen pics, shocks are new.   Optional rear end 3.55 was rebuilt.  Note the  highly detailed engine compartment with the correct shroud, chrome shielding, new hood insulation, air intake boot...  Vacuum operated headlights work perfect, lights work including reverse.  It has new Aluminum wheels with new tires all around.  Engine runs strong,  has lots of power, transmission shifts as it should, ride is very stable and enjoyable.
