We photograph each vehicle to the greatest extent so you can feel confident about your purchase. If you have a question about the Corvette, just give us a call.

Exterior

The Classic White exterior is in excellent driver condition. As one can see in the photos, the finish has dazzling gloss, smooth finish, and deep shine. The rally wheels and center caps are in great condition with a nice finish. Please note that this Stingray has the correct and original 4-clip style beauty rings, not the cheaper foreign made replacements. The Cooper Cobra raised white letter tires are literally brand new with less than 20 miles on them and are correctly sized 225/70R15. There are a few tiny blemishes around car that were too small to show up in pictures, but nothing else that is really noticeable from about five feet away. As one can see in the many photos of the underside and in the video this car is very clean underneath. We have included specific photos of the areas most prone to rust to show how nice this car looks.

Window Date Codes

Please note that ALL of the glass on this Corvette, the windshield, both "Astro Ventilation" door windows, and even the pop-out rear window, are all date coded and original as each piece predates the car's body build date of September 9, 1971 (B09). Original glass is a good indication that this car has had no major accident history and never sustained significant damage.

Interior

The Red Vinyl interior of the Corvette is in excellent condition. The seats look great overall with no excessive wear or split seams. The seats are not overly worn in the typical area where the driver gets in and out. The gauge faces are clean and crisp and the lenses are clear. The carpet is in also in okay condition with some wear in the very rear storage compartment. The car as an aftermarket radio that was specifically made for this model Corvette, most importantly the dash has never been cut or modified for the installation. The dash and console are in good shape with no cracks, fading, or sun damage. This Corvette has never been smoked in; there are no burns marks and no aroma of cigarettes.

Corvette interiors from this era are not known to wear well and the excellent condition of this interior is a huge testament to the meticulous care and attention this car has received throughout its life.

Mechanical

This Corvette seems to be in very good mechanical condition. The original numbers matching engine runs well and idles smooth. The car drives great and feels nice on the road and at highway speeds. In the video below one can observe the car accelerating on the highway up to about 70mph, shifting through all the gears, braking to stoplight, and going through some curves. Please note that there are no vibrations and the car performs quite well overall. The brakes are responsive and do not pull to one side or the other. The transmission shifts well throughout the power band. Also, the engine compartment is beautifully clean and detailed as one can see in the photos.

The radio works as do all the exterior lights, dash lights, horn, wipers, and indicators. The blower for the heater and a/c works on all speeds. The a/c itself works and blows cold, one can observe the compressor clicking on and engaging properly in the video. The entire vacuum system for the headlights and wiper door works correctly. Please note that the vacuum system work properly from both the respective switches on the dash and the override switches. The entire operation from both switches can be viewed in the video. All of the gauges work with the obvious exception of the clock. As with many older cars this Stingray is cold blooded, but always starts with a few pumps of the gas pedal and runs better when warm. It could probably benefit from a tune up to smooth it out when cold. Not enough can be said as to how much of a pleasure it is to drive this car, especially with the T-Tops out on a beautiful day.

Overall Condition

Overall, this 1972 Corvette looks fantastic and is in excellent driver condition. The beautiful original color combination, excellent condition, and the great extent to which the numbers match make this Stingray especially important and very hard to duplicate. Numbers matching is extremely important in Corvette pricing and as one can see, this car is quite correct. There are photos of the VIN stamp on the engine block, suffix code, engine assembly date, transmission date, and transmission VIN stamp. This car does not have a door key, but one can be provided for and additional $250. In my opinion and based on our experience the "Chrome Bumper" cars from 1968-1972 are the most collectible and hottest in the entire Corvette market right now. The value of these cars has gone up exponentially in recent years. They are all solid investments for a collector. One could easily enjoy this vehicle for several years and sell it for more than the purchase price with minimal effort.

Thank you for looking and please do not hesitate to email or call with any questions.
