This 1972 Chevrolet Corvette Convertible is a factory red car inside and out, and it's believed to have lived a well-respected three-owner life thus far. It even has its numbers-matching V8 and transmission. And as you look at the full package, you'll see a terrific vintage attitude with the right investments added to make for a good all-around classic.
Red always looks terrific on a convertible, and the trim tag tells us this is a factory Mille Miglia Red car. So you get the pride of correctness, and since it has a driver-quality presentation, many people will admire it at the intersections without making you too nervous to enjoy it in-between the stoplights. After all, America's sports car was made for driving fun. And you can really recognize investments in details like the good window seals and bright chrome. And speaking of brightwork, the '72 has plenty of it. The shine has a clean but classic appearance on the shark-like front bumper, two-piece rear bumper, rocker panels, window trim, and Rally wheels. Plus, you get to choose between a folding soft top and a vinyl-wrapped hardtop both in an attractive black.
While both tops look attractive, we all know you're going to want to drive with no roof at all. And the factory-correct interior means this was born a red-blooded American inside and out! The fundamentals like the upholstery, carpeting, dash, and door panels have a clean and deep red appearance. It's an overall attractive presentation, right down to the working courtesy light. This gets you ready for a driver's car, especially with all the right details. That means a grippy three-spoke sports steering wheel, a tilt/telescopic column, a large speedo and tach directly in front of it, and auxiliary readouts at eye level. It's also loaded with great features, like power windows, the Delco AM/FM stereo, and factory-style air conditioning (it's upgraded to R134a but it will need servicing to blow cold again.)
Under the hood is the numbers-matching 350 cubic inch V8. It has a bright block, polished air grabber, finned valve covers, and an overall tidy look of good care. It inhales deeply with a four-barrel carburetor and makes a nice rumble exhaling from the dual exhaust. And the TH400 three-speed transmission is the right mix of stout construction and easy automatic shifting. So this is a terrific drop-top cruiser. Plus, you have power steering, four-wheel power disc brakes, and a fully independent suspension for true driving fun.
A nicely-presented Corvette like this means nice paperwork, too. The sale includes a reproduction window sticker, owner's manual, and service manuals. When a great driver is also a solid all-around classic, you know you need it in your garage. Call today!!!
