You can't get a better overall performance car. I'd be hard-pressed to find a better car, for the money, than the Vette. It's just an incredible automobile. �€" Tony DeLorenzo, Motor Trend road-test reviewer, June 1972 The Motorious website described the early-Seventies C3 'Vettes: The differences between the 1971 and the 1972 Stingray are minimal. Corvettes 1971 model was the last model to feature fiber-optic warning lights while the 1972 Stingray was the first to have amber-colored front turn signals and a chrome egg-crate grill. The 1972 Stingray was also the last production year for chrome front and rear bumpers. Beyond these minor differences, the '71 and '72 models were basically the same. Both models were available in either a convertible coupe body style or a sports coupe body style. Many Stingray fans refer to the convertible as a roadster. However, with roll-up windows and windshield that is fixed, this model was a true convertible. When it comes to classic cars, the most beloved Corvette models that most folks enjoy and remember are the hidden-headlight Corvettes mainly due to their longevity on the Corvette and the sleekness and sexiness they produce for the vehicle! No other American-made classic car enjoys such a long, long history of uniqueness as does the Corvette. Offered here in Classic White over Saddle is a 1972 Corvette Stingray Convertible 454 big block. The car's odometer shows 69,796 miles, fewer than 1,425 miles per-year since it was delivered new at Rosenthal Chevrolet of Arlington, Washington. The condition of the car for its age reflects responsible-owner care through the years. The original window sticker (included in the sale and presented in the accompanying photo gallery) details the car's original equipment. That the document has been kept for nearly 50 years is another indicator of the owner's passion for the Corvette. The Classic White (Code 1010) exterior paint is original; its condition is excellent with even high gloss across all fiberglass body panels, in particular the 454-badged raised hood. (To best assess the quality of the paint and trim finishes, be sure to view the close-up photographs of the car in the accompanying gallery.) In part, Classic reflects the fact that this shade of white dates to the first Corvette and has been offered yearly since then. This 'Vette is equipped with a light-tan fabric top as well as a removable black-vinyl hardtop, both in excellent condition. Chrome bumpers fore and aft (their final model year) are in excellent condition; likewise the chrome windshield trim (with slight patina from age), and chrome-accented fender louvers. Side mirrors and door handles show virtually no wear. The twin front eggcrate-style lower grilles and chin spoiler are in original, excellent condition. Cabin glass, and lighting lenses-including on the pop-up headlights-are clear and undamaged. Factory badging-including crossed-flags emblems on the hood and rear deck, Stingray script on the front fenders, and C-o-r-v-e-t-t-e lettering on the rear-is all properly located and mounted. Square, original dual-exhaust tips are in place, as is the lock for the theft-prevention system. Original silver-painted steel wheels with chrome, Chevrolet Motor Division center caps and trim rings are mounted with raised-white-letter BFGoodrich Radial T/A® Radial 255/60/R15 tires. The car's interior has been very well-main
