Seven Hills Motorcars is very proud to offer this beautiful numbers matching 1972 Corvette Stingray Convertible in fantastic condition with only 66,050 original miles. This Stingray has been finished in the beautiful and highly desirable color combination of bright red over saddle. This iconic color combination is highly desirable, truly striking, and looks great on this Corvette shark body style. This Corvette is "Numbers Matching" with the last six digits of the VIN stamped on the engine pad, which is pictured in this ad, and the engine is original to the car. The transmission is also original with the last six digits of the VIN stamped on the main case.

We have this car priced to sell and are offering an excellent opportunity to own a very desirable Corvette convertible at an unbeatable value. The convertible body style draws a great premium over standard coupes. One could easily buy this car now and sell it for more than the purchase price in years to come as the market on C3 "chrome bumper" Corvettes from 1968 to 1972 is absolutely red hot right now and on the rise with the 1972 being on the most desirable years. The low mileage is verified not only by the condition of the car, but also the clear Ohio title, pictured in this ad, which shows the mileage as "Actual." Please peruse all of the photos, video, list of numbers, and other information below to get a true sense of how nice this Corvette really is.

As a side note, this Corvette is not a dealer auction vehicle. We hand pick each car after careful inspection. Our Corvettes come from owners who expect their car to go to someone that will give the vehicle the same care and attention as they did. We invite and encourage you to examine the car in person or have the car inspected. Please take the time to scrutinize each picture. 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 red 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 and no curb rash. The Goodyear Eagle GTII raised white letter tires have about 90% tread left and are correctly sized 225/70R15. The chrome is in great condition overall with no pitting. There are no major imperfections that have been intentionally excluded from the photos. There are a few tiny blemishes around car and a spot on the hood that were too faint to show up in pictures, but nothing else that is really noticeable from about five feet away. We have included many photos of the underside. We have also included specific photos of the areas most prone to rust to show how this car looks and it appears there may have been some rust repair in the past. The soft top is in terrific condition with no rips, holes, or frayed edges. The rear window is clear and not foggy or yellowed.

Window Date Codes

Both "Astro Ventilation" door windows are date coded and original as each piece predates the car's body build date of February 3, 1972 (G03). Original glass is a good indication that this car has had no major accident history and never sustained significant damage.

Interior

The Saddle interior of the Corvette is in outstanding condition. The seats are in excellent shape with no rips, split seams, or excessive wear. 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 "like new" condition with no stains, rips, or holes. This includes the rear carpet, which is often neglected. The car has 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 and another great verification of the low original mileage.

Mechanical

This Corvette seems to be in good mechanical condition. The original numbers matching engine starts right away every time, 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 do not pull to one side or the other. Please note this Corvette had manual brakes and will not feel like a boosted brake system. 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, and wipers, even the "head lamp" light on the dash works to show that the headlights have risen properly. This Stingray has a very rare option, a rear window defroster, which also works. Less than 10% of the Corvettes made in 1972 has a rear window defroster. The blower for the heater works on all speeds. 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. Not enough can be said as to how much of a pleasure it is to drive this car, especially with the top down on a beautiful day.

Overall Condition

Overall, this 1972 Corvette Stingray Convertible looks fantastic and is in excellent driver condition. The beautiful 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 code. 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, with 1972 being the final and one of the best model years. The convertible Stingray models always draw a great premium over the standard coupes. 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.
