This 1972 Chevrolet Chevelle is an SS Tribute with a powerful small
block under the hood and the control of four-on-the-floor. So yes,
this certainly has the power and poise to back up its looks of a
mean and dark icon.
These Chevelle hardtops are a legend for terrific muscle car looks
with a wide front end, body-hugging bumpers, swollen fenders, and a
fastback-style profile. And this one plays into that powerful
feeling. After all, it was upgraded with aggressive elements like
blackout SS grille, SS badging, hood pins, Rally wheels, and cowl
hood. The white racing stripes are a terrific pairing painted on
top of the black body. The full paint package was an upgrade later
in life, and it retains a good gloss today. The full package is
very much a driver-quality execution, and that seems right on this
one. Because as you dig into all the details, you'll see a car that
wants to make sure you will never be too nervous about hopping in
on a whim and going for a drive.
The black interior looks stylish against the black exterior. It's a
complete and well-done package. So while you may choose to update a
few pieces, this one impresses, right down to the little things,
like the detailed upholstery pattern and working dome light. Plus,
as a driver's car, you have a terrific setup. That means bucket
seats up front, a center console in-between, a Hurst shifter, and
an NK4 sports steering wheel. There's full instrumentation with a
large speedo/tach and a nice set of SunPro gauges under the dash.
So while there's an upgraded AM/FM/CD stereo with a powered
subwoofer, we bet your favorite soundtrack really begins in the
Under the hood is Chevrolet's trusty 350 cubic-inch V8. It's a
bright motor that you can tell was built for power. It includes
upgrades like a Holley four-barrel carburetor, Edelbrock
performance intake, MSD ignition, steel braided lines, polished
Chevrolet valve covers, and headers feeding the Flowmaster dual
exhaust. We were even told this was a stroker motor. There is no
current documentation on this, but the total package has the strong
feeling of a performance setup. The Muncie four-speed manual
transmission gives you control over the power package, and it feeds
a stout 12-bolt rear end. Plus, with power steering, power brakes,
front discs, a rear sway bar, and wide BF Goodrich T/As, it's easy
to show off this muscle machine everywhere.
Dark, powerful, and iconic, it's hard to resist a hardtop like
this. So it's time to get this stick-shift Chevelle in your garage.
