1973 Corvette Brochure

The original brochure for the 1973 Corvette stated, "We gave it radials, a quieter ride, guard beams and a nose job."   Like every new generation of Corvette this one has its own distinct appeal. This is one of most desirable cars ever built. Because when someone pulls up to a traffic light, heads turn. And when they pass a passerby, eyes follow. The 1973 Vet is that kind of car.
