Streetside Classics - Nashville
6000 Reliance Dr
This 1972 Chevrolet Corvette is quite a uniquely upgraded machine. It has a fresher crate V8, fuel injection, and one of the coolest colors of its year. So if you\'re looking for a powerful and distinctive driver, this is your Stingray.
Steel Cities Gray is a cool name to say and an even cooler color to see on your classic. This was one of the few years that the factory offered it, and so upgrading the color on this one still looks natural. And we covet the \'72 because it was the last year for the chrome bumper package. So the paint makes the body look like steel, and it\'s the last time for the full metal bumpers...that\'s quite cool. Good body lines, polished rockers, and proper Rally wheels make for a nice classic. And there are even subtle performance style upgrades like the LT1 hood and quad exhaust tips.
The black interior has a tasteful look against the gray paint, so it\'s easy to look good driving around with the T-tops out. It\'s a comfortable car, and there\'s even an upgraded stereo. But what we like the best is how this is very driver-oriented. You have a tilt/telescopic steering column, full gauges with a large speedo and tach directly in front, and the EFI controller lets you know there\'s something good under the hood.
The engine bay currently focuses on the driving experience. You know that when you spot the newer crate engine block. This 350 cubic-inch V8 has also been upgraded with a high-rise intake and shorty headers feeding the dual exhaust. And this V8 is now topped with a FiTech electronic fuel injection system for the best in power and consistency. There are even good supporting components like an HEI distributor and an aluminum radiator. It makes for a string-running total package. And this Corvette is great for driving anywhere because you have comfortable and confident features like a fully independent suspension, power steering, a three-speed automatic transmission, and four-wheel power disc brakes.
There is room for improvement in the details of this C3. But the appeal of a true classic like this is often about the fun you can have today and the potential for all the personalization and quality restorations you can do in the future. Even the numbers-matching motor comes with the sale! So if you love power, distinction, and potential, call today!
