Gateway Classic Cars of Fort Lauderdale is excited to offer this
rare 1972 Corvette LT1 Roaster! This Vette has a lot going for it.
1972 was the last year for chrome front bumpers, side bright "egg
crate" grills, and it was also the last year for the highly
desirable GEN-1 RPO LT1 V8 engine. The Steel Cities Gray exterior
is a sharp color against the contrasting black interior. Toss in
the LT1 and 4-speed setup, and you have yourself one very
desirable, fun to drive Corvette. The exterior is still very
presentable and is considerably better than most we see. Gaps are
very good, and it would not take much to make it outstanding. The
special LT1 hood and graphics set this apart from your run of the
mill C3, and it looks TOUGH. An early C3 with all the right stuff.
BY 1972, the Feds were making things tough on Detroit muscle. But
the last year LT1 engine makes considerable power, and combined
with the 4-speed, it is surprisingly quick and a heck of a lot of
fun. The 1972 LT1 still had 9-1 compression, solid lifters, and a
host of performance parts inside, making them a great choice and
strong runner. This one is the recipient of an upgraded cooling
system w/ electric fans, which deletes the power robbing original
mechanical fan. Fortunately, the correct original matching VIN
prefix and engine suffix code (CKY) are visible on the block. The
factory Winters aluminum intake and Holley were replaced at some
point with later versions. This was a non-factory air condition, no
power brakes car from the factory, but it has power steering and
aftermarket air conditioning was added to make it more pleasant to
drive. The interior looks great and can certainly be enjoyed as is.
The vintage AM/FM Delco still resides in the dash. The soft top is
also in good condition. It is a lower option car meaning more
reliable, and the wiper & headlamp systems are working. We expect
this rare LT1 model to sell soon, so get it before it is gone. This
1972 Chevrolet Corvette LT1 Roadster is for sale through our Fort
Lauderdale showroom and can be seen in greater detail including
100+ HD pictures and a HD video at www.gatewayclassiccars.com for
