Gateway Classic Cars Houston showroom is proud to offer this
beautiful matching numbers Ontario Orange 1972 Chevrolet Corvette
for sale. This T-top car is powered by its original 350 CID LT-1
V8. 1972 was the last year for front and rear chrome bumpers and
saw the beginning of the use of SAE net power ratings. This meant
that power was rated with all engine accessories in place. This
Corvette has the high-performance small block engine (the LT-1 was
rated at 55 more HP than the base unit's 200HP); which, when
converted back to gross HP (like its 1971 rating would have used),
would have been rated at close to 350HP. This is still more than
enough to burn off the rear tires and give a lot of cars a run for
their money. The C3 Corvette (referring to the third generation)
ran from 1968 all the way through 1982. This C3 is one of only
about 20,486 Corvette coupes produced in 1972. With its roughly
93,000 miles on the odometer, and having its original drivetrain,
it is very likely to increase in value as the LT-1 cars become
harder to find (especially the manual transmission cars). This
numbers matching Corvette is equipped with its original-spec
leather seating, and the black interior nicely contrasts with the
Ontario Orange paint. It fires up with ease, and is a real pleasure
to drive, with everything operating smoothly and properly. This
beauty is ready to rock the shows and steal the show at cruising
events. Pop off the T-tops, remove and stow the back glass, and
have a "near-convertible experience", while still getting the
better ride that most coupes have (compared to pure roadsters). So,
what are you waiting for? Snap this one up, strap yourself in, fire
it up, grab 1st gear, and hit it! For more information on this 1972
