Nice! Don’t see too many of any year with a Special trim tag.

Sounds like my 73 with side pipes. Are the mufflers glass packs?

I also want to thank my brother firstgenaddict for finding this car. I could not have got this without him. He flew out to look at it and verify the car before purchase. The previous owner had only put 2000 miles on it since 1990. The tires are from the 70s. I will be putting tires on it and totally cleaning it. The car will not be restored..

That is one slick 73!! If I add to my corvette stable it will probably be a 73. I read somewhere that the 73 was one of
Z. Duntov's favorite designs, saying something like 'That is really what a corvette should look like!'

A truly fortunate find!

Do you know anything about the history of the black color? Usually a Spec trim tag indicates a car delivered in primer. The dealer would have then painted it whatever color the buyer wanted.

Can you provide a picture of the of the Trim Tag?
