Corvette 1972

This 1972 Chevrolet Corvette convertible hits all the high notes: a matching-numbers V8, four-speed manual transmission, a great color combo, and both tops. So look over all the details of this classic to see how it fits your full wish list.

This one really seems to get its total appearance right, and it all starts with the paint. The factory-correct Classic White lives up to its name by having timeless appeal. This continues to have a nice luster that shows off the sweeping curves of the Stingray's body. Adding to the distinction is your choice of a folding soft top in white, or a well-done hardtop covered in taut black vinyl. It gives you the option of a hint of color coordination, or you can have the kind of attractive contrast you get on formalwear. Plus, these earlier C3s are also for the brightwork lovers, and so the thin bumpers, rocker panels, and Rally wheels come together to add to this vintage shine package.

While either one of the tops give this 'Vette a sophisticated appearance, neither one of them can beat the look with the roof off. That's because the factory-correct tan gives this one a European-like sensibility. This classic really does have a period-correct feel, right down to the heat/defrost sliders and the leather on the seats. But more than just appearance, this one was meant to be driven. That's why you have the right upgrades, like the AM/FM digital tuner w/cassette, and a new set of weather-stripping comes with the sale. Plus the three-spoke sports steering wheel gives you a terrific view of the large speedo and handy tach. Just to the side is a full auxiliary gauge panel that's mounted high so you never have to let your eyes stray too far.

Under the hood is the numbers-matching 350 cubic inch V8. It's a tidy setup with a shining air cleaner, polished distributor shield, ribbed valve covers, and a bold block. And the reason for such a well-done presentation is the low odometer is believed to reflect the car's actual mileage, and it has been treated with the right care over the years. We have a large receipt file including newer essentials, like a carb refresh, steering box rebuild, and new motor mounts in 2016. The four-speed manual transmission is also the numbers-matching unit, and it had the shifter rebuilt as part of the service in 2016. The total control it gives you over the V8 and its rumbling soundtrack is another reminder of how much a driver's classic this really is. Plus, the fully independent suspension updated shocks, power steering, and four-wheel power disc brakes keeps this one of the best vintage sports cars around.

The sale comes complete with the factory buildsheet, owner's manual, and maintenance records. This Stingray provides distinction and history in a terrific drop-top package. So don't miss your chance, call today!
