Last of the beautiful Corvettes. 1974 if I remember correctly was the last in line for that line. They were great cars then.

The '73 was the only year to still have the chrome rear bumpers but had the new body colored front bumper cover. Sharp one.

'72 last year for both chrome front and back.
'73 had the chrome rear bumper (Along w/ the 63 makes it the easiest to pick out quickly)
'74 had the split bumper.
'77 was the last year of the flat window.
'78 started the bubble back.

Not driving your car to keep miles off of it, is like not having sex with your girlfriend so her next boyfriend will appreciate it more.

My first Vette was a gold 73. My wife and I had a great time in that car and drove it for years. Enjoy yours and best of luck with her.

Nice C3! Looks great with the Rallys... even the old school chrome luggage rack adds to its classic look.

It is not to bad for an old movie. Seen it a couple of times and it was on Netflix streaming a couple of months ago when I watched it.
