For Sale: 1972 Chevrolet Corvette in Lavergne, Tennessee

Vehicle Description

This 1972 Chevrolet Corvette convertible hits all the high notes: a matching-numbers V8, numbers-matching four-speed, and a great/rare color combo. So look over all the details of this classic to see how it's the perfect mix of investment and originality.

This one really seems to get its total appearance right, and it all starts with the paint. The code-987 Ontario Orange was only available for two years. It gives this C3 coupe the same bold first impression you get with a classic red Corvette, but with an instant distinction in a crowd. It was updated later in life so that now it's the ideal mix of a driver-ready car that also has an attractive clearcoat shine. The panels have the fit of good care and investment right down to the smooth headlight flaps and the doors you can shut with authority. These earlier C3s are also for the brightwork lovers, and so the thin bumpers, bright grilles, rocker panels, Rally wheels, and optional luggage rack come together to add to this vintage and shining package.

The white convertible top is nice and bright, and so this one looks quite attractive with the roof in place. But a convertible like this loves to be open to the world. That's why the saddle tan interior is a harmonizing color against the orange paint for a factory-correct and true 1970s style machine. There is an attractive style with nice high-back bucket seats, newer plush carpeting, power windows, and an overall sense of a cared-for classic. Even the Delco AM/FM radio is there for a display. As the driver, you get a three-spoke steering wheel on a tilt/telescopic steering column. Just ahead of that is the large dual pod gauges, including the tach. Just to the side are a full set of auxiliary readouts for a true sports car experience. And you just know the bright shifter is calling out for your right hand.

When you lift the hood, you can see this car is the total package. This is the original, matching-numbers 350 cubic inch V8. It has a bright block, polished air grabber, matching distributor shield, and overall tidy look of quality care. You'll even spot newer investments in fundamentals like the alternator, brake booster, master cylinder, hoses, and belt. So it's a classic made for driving. That's why the motor fires up so eagerly, and the numbers-matching four-speed lets you take confident control. Plus, the power steering, four-wheel disc brakes, and the fully independent suspension keep this one of the best vintage sports cars around.

Complete with owner's manual, this Stingray provides distinction and history in a terrific drop-top package. So don't miss your chance, call today!
