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
