Classic Car Overview

Now for sale in our Houston Showroom is this powerful 1973 Chevrolet Corvette. Imagine yourself driving to a car show in this head-turning/car show winning/gas wasting/screaming Corvette. I promise you will stop everyone in their tracks! This car is a one off custom award-winning C3 corvette. It placed 2nd at the 2016 Houston Autorama in the Mild Sport Custom class and 2nd at the 2016 Corvette Expo in Galveston, TX (Custom C3 class) and has won first place at several local car shows. This was factory J Code L-48 but was replaced with the desirable 427 Turbo Jet out of a 69 Corvette. The engine was rebuilt only 5,000 miles ago and runs like a champ. It has cast iron ported and polished heads, a freshly rebuilt B&M supercharger that makes 5-6lbs of boost and adds about 150-175hp. Other items include a Demon 850CFM carb, Lunati Blower Cam, 1 headers with straight pipe, 3 exhaust (no mufflers) with polished stainless-steel tips. It is loud from behind, but inside the car it sounds just right! Brand new water pump, aluminum radiator with electric variable speed fans, new power steering pump, new power steering cylinder. Custom polished aluminum 427 Turbo Jet valve covers. This mean machine has a new TCI 3 speed automatic turbo 400 with a 3500RPM stall converter and a strong shift kit from Summit Racing. It has a posi-trac rear end and believed to have 3:73 gearing. This car is a blast to drive! It will throw you back in your seat, smoke the tires then hook up and go if you try. The brakes are freshly rebuilt disc brakes with new master cylinder. The body of the car is slightly different from the factory as this one features custom 3 1/2 rear fender flares, 2 1/2 flares in the front. Body has been shaved to delete all the emblems (although 1 have all the correct emblems brand new in a box if you want to put them on). It has been repainted in January of 2018 with a pearl yellow with shredded chrome metal flake in the paint. Looks amazing in the sunlight. Brand new polished aluminum side skirt panels.
