1972 Chevrolet Corvette Coupe

First- and second-generation Corvettes are one of the first true collectible cars of the modern era, and collecting Corvettes remains a global phenomenon. More than just another two-seat sports car, the Vette is an American icon. There's a good reason it's often referred to as America's sports car, and every enthusiast should have at least a basic knowledge of its seven generations.

For consignment an excellent condition '72 Vette. Taking form as a numbers matching LT-1 car, matching original paint respray, and shiny clean chrome, I smell another collectible coming over the hill straight into your garage.


With its restoration completed in 2014, a quality respray of Targa Blue, is very smooth with the exception of some bubbling in the one quarter panel. Its shark like front end with a chrome bumper at the point, egg crate grille below, and hidden headlights which melt into a scooped hood, this car's sculptural qualities are off the charts. Air intake egg crate on the front quarters with Stingray scripted chrome backing above, and a curvaceous rocker trim panel, this car is a work of art. Noted the flat rear window is not installed, but is included with this car. Bringing up the rear are the iconic 'Vette round taillights into the flat vertical panel and dual rectangular exhaust tips below the squared off eyebrow chrome bumpers. Noted are the non leaking T tops...groovy.


Completely restored to near showroom perfection, the black leather horizontal tuck and roll pattern show no faults. Black carpet in good condition floats the buckets. The center console has a neato leather padded armrest which doubles as a glove box door. Moving forward is an appliqu wood panel which houses the gearshift. Above is a cluster of round gauges that will make you feel like a 747 pilot. A classic wood steering wheel fronts a deep dual gauge instrument cluster. Door panels show some wear around the round knob door locks, but otherwise are in good condition.


A 350ci LT-1 numbers matching V8 is nestled into a clean engine bay. A single 4-barrel carburetor is atop, and a Muncie M21 4-speed manual transmission is attached to the rear of the mill. All numbers matching, and all very nicely presenting...applause please for the power train.


Straight out of 1972, this structurally sound, with very limited areas of surface rust, clean floor plans, and just plain goodness underneath. Racy C3 suspension on front and rear, and 4-wheel disc brakes are all around. A shout out to the under of the engine emblazoned with correct Chevrolet Orange...nice!


A turn of the key and we are in auditory heaven, and I can feel it in the seat of my pants in the form of a vibration. Smooth shifter with a good clutch, rail like handling, and lots-o-power from the 350 cubes throwing it back to the Muncie. Ergonomics are awesome and I felt totally at home in this 'Vette, in fact so much so, I may take it to my home, unless you beat me to it.

A fantastic job all around on the restoration performed on this baby. Very nicely presenting, well running example right out of 72. All wrapped in Targa Blue, and chrome, hidden headlights, T top, and hey! It's numbers matching...Bring it on 'Vette Aficionados.
