Gateway Classic Cars Houston showroom is pleased to offer for sale
this gorgeous blue 1972 Chevrolet Corvette. As most Corvette
aficionados are aware, 1972 was the last year for front and rear
chrome bumpers, and saw the beginning of the use of SAE "net power"
ratings, which meant that power was rated with all engine
accessories in place. This particular Corvette has the 200HP L48
4BBL engine; which, when converted back to gross HP (like a 1971
rating would have used), would have been approximately 270HP.
Backing the potent V8 is a GM TH350 3-speed automatic transmission.
This 1972 Corvette is believed to be a numbers-matching car (not
fully verified, but the block stamping pad's numbers correctly
match the VIN, and don't appear to be a re-stamp). One of the few
non-factory elements on this car is a large Griffin aluminum
radiator, which goes a long way to improve the engine cooling vs.
the OEM radiator. The car also appears to be in its original Targa
Blue color (code 979), which in the right lighting, has such depth
that it presents elements of having a purplish hue. Very
attractive, indeed! The chrome is bright all around, including the
beauty rings on the Rally Wheels contrasts nicely with the blue.
The steel Rally Wheels with their P225/75R14 raised white letter BF
Goodrich Radial T/A tires add to the correct look of this 1972
Corvette and provide improved handling over the original bias ply
tires. Inside, the black carpet and synthetic leather seating look
very good and are the correct black interior color. Drivers will
appreciate the tilt steering wheel, and the new A/C compressor
provides for comfort all year. Additional features and options on
this 1972 Corvette for sale include AM/FM Radio, Power Brakes,
Power Steering, Raised White Letter Radial Tires, Seat Belts,
T-Tops, Tilt Steering Wheel, and Vinyl Interior. For more
