Vehicle Description

This 1972 Chevrolet Corvette convertible is a true wish-list in one. It's a numbers-matching that's also believed to be exceptionally original, right down to the rare paint. Plus, you have all the best features, including side pipes and both tops.

Steel Cities Gray is a sought-after factory color. It was only offered for two-years, and one of the rarest for both. Plus, it has the kind of hue we see on many new cars today. So while people may ask what kind of modern color you laid down, you can really blow their minds. After all, not only is it factory-correct, but also it's believed to be mostly the original application laid down by the factory! It's not perfect, but that's ok, because St. Louis didn't do them perfectly either. All that matters is that this convertible has a good gloss lets the sunlight highlight the straight and well-respected body. There's nice brightwork with the shark-like front end, two-piece rear bumper, bright side vents, and Rally wheels. Of course, your favorite shine might just be those side pipes. They were part of some speedy-style upgrades that also include the power bulge in the LT1 hood.

The black roof is a complementing color to the gray and so you look good with both the folding soft top or the removable hard top in place. Of course, a car like this was really meant to be open to the world, and so it's great that there's a full black interior, too. Just like the exterior, the interior retains a high degree of originality, and its quality condition reflects a well-respected life so far. They kept all the right pieces in place for a proper survivor, including the Delco AM/FM radio and air conditioning (both will need servicing to function correctly again.) And you're really going to love how this was built around the driver. That means high-back bucket seats, a bright shifter, and a grippy three-spoke sports steering wheel on a tilt column. You have the large speedo and tach directly in front of you, and all the essential gauges are mounted front-and-center.

Under the hood is the original numbers-matching 350 cubic-inch V8. This one has an authentic look, right down to the ribbed Corvette valve covers. More importantly it fires up with the kind of gusto that tells you this has been a well-respected car. The V8 inhales deeply through a four-barrel carburetor, and it exhales with authority through the sweet-sounding side pipes. Best of all, you are in complete control over this V8 and its growling soundtrack with the car's numbers-matching four-speed manual transmission. Plus, the fully independent suspension, power steering, and four-wheel disc brakes are all there to make sure the driving experience reminds you this is America's sports car.

Complete with owner's manual and service manuals, this Corvette convertible is a fantastic total package for lovers of distinction, history, and pure driving pleasure. If you want to impress even fellow Corvette enthusiasts, don't miss this Stingray. Call now!
