For Sale: 1972 Chevrolet Corvette in Lavergne, Tennessee

Vehicle Description

This 1972 Chevrolet Corvette has all the best classic pieces you really want. After all, it's a numbers-matching four-speed car that has been upgraded for added performance and comfort. And it's coming off of over 30 years under the same caretaker.

1972's Targa Blue was a great color. So while this one wasn't born in that hue, it was upgraded to the year-correct color around 1990. And when the change was comprehensive and it has been that way for over half its life thus far, it really feels like a blue car. Plus, they gave this some distinct additions, like the LT1 hood and color-matched steel wheels to make the classic Rally setup look unique without losing its history. And history is what this one gets right. After all, long-term ownership is a sign of proper care, and this one has been with the same owner for the last 30 years. You see the higher level of respect in the straightness of the body panels, the shine of the brightwork, and how it carries all the right little details down the luggage rack.

The black interior looks handsome against the dark blue exterior. That's especially true on the recently recovered leather seats. And the carpeting, door panels, and dash all continue this look of dark quality. This has the right vintage features with the tilt/telescopic steering column, power windows, full auxiliary gauges, and even the dome lights work. Plus, there have been well-integrated upgrades like the cup holders and retro-style AM/FM digital tuner w/cassette. And the air conditioning went in for a major servicing within the last year to remain blowing cold. So this is the perfect car to open up the T-tops, even in the summertime.

Under the hood is the numbers-matching 350 cubic-inch V8. But in the right car, originality doesn't mean missing out on maintenance. This includes recement investment, like a new aluminum intake, Griffin aluminum radiator, oil pan gasket, and rear main seal. This one fires up eagerly and makes a great V8 tune from the chambered dual exhaust. And you're in complete control of the V8 power and the rumbling soundtrack thanks to the numbers-matching Muncie M20 four-speed manual transmission. Plus, the fully independent suspension, newer bushings, power steering, and four-wheel power disc brakes give you a confident and nimble feeling on the road.

The sale comes complete with the owner's manual, maintenance records, and valuable service manuals. This also can come with plenty of extra parts, including the original hood. It is hard not to get excited about a special car that has received special care. So if you're looking for a Stingray of distinction, you can't let this one slip away. Call today!!!
