I love all Corvettes, also, the power of the later C3s was decreasing, but even those mid 70's to early 80's Corvettes although didn't have much power, had a lot of potential, you can make real monsters out of them.

C3 is probably my favourite generation of Corvettes, and C1. These are just magnificent.

The easiest to find reference for all this info is the Corvette Black Book published by Michael Bruce Associates, Inc. www.corvetteblackbook.com

By 1973 the C3 models had been out for 5 years and were now using the more realistic net rating for horsepower (introduced for all makes by 1972). 1973 Corvettes had 350 cu in engines with 190 bhp or 250 bhp. Optional engine was the big block 454 cu in with 275 bhp.

The Chevy 350 cu in engine was introduced in 1969. It came in 300 and 350 horsepower versions and replaced the 327. The 454 cu in replaced the 427 in 1970.

This page has a lot of problems, and as a Corvette enthusiast and former Vette owner, I feel a need to give some corrections. The C3 was introduced in 1968 with either a 327 or 427 cu in engine. 327s had either 300 or 350 (gross) hp. 427s had gross ratings of 390, 400, 435, or (under rated) 430 hp.

I owned a '73 Vette about 25 years ago, really enjoyed it alot (Blue coupe on the right)
I think the weight was closer to 3500 pounds with the small block and 3700 pounds with the 454, they got a little overweight in the 70's
