Carolina Muscle Cars, Inc. is proud to be selling a very rare 1972
Corvette LT-1 Convertible. Powered by the numbers matching 350 LT-1
engine, and M-21 4-Speed transmission. This is one very rare LT-1
and one of only a handful built in this configuration.
The LT-1 engine was introduced in a Corvette in 1970 and was a $483
engine upgrade. The LT-1 engine consisted on a 4 bolt main block,
forged crankshaft and rods, forged pistons, high flow heads,
mechanical lifters, high lift camshaft, dual plane intake and a
Holley carburetor. The LT-1 package made this special 350 scream.
Only 1,741 LT-1's were built for 1972 and less then 10% reportedly
were LT-1 Convertibles.
This very well equipped LT-1 Convertible was optioned with the CKY
code 350 LT-1 engine and backed with the 4-Speed transmission. The
engine and transmission has the VIN stamp on both engine and
Other options include Power Steering, 4 wheel power disc brakes,
tinted glass, Astro-ventilation, Posi-traction rear, Am- Fm stereo,
and original floor mats. The car retains the original trim tag
denoting this car as a correct color code car as well. The trim tag
denotes Targa Blue Exterior with Black interior. The color
combination is very striking with the accenting LT-1 black hood
Restoration included all new paint. The gaps and lines are
excellent on this LT-1. The interior is all new with new seats,
carpets, door panels and dash pad. . The engine was detailed and
shows very well. The underside was also clean and tidy. All new
components were replaced or restored as needed to ensure a quality
ride. Turning the key will reveal the LT-1 engine was restored with
all the correct components including the solid lifter camshaft. The
4 Speed shifts smoothly and clutch assembly was replaced and feels
new. All lights and gauges work and original radio is still
working. This is an excellent LT-1 to show or drive. This was would
be an excellent candidate for a NCRS Award as this car is very
original and correct LT-1.
Documentation includes owners manual, NCRS Shipping Data Report,
Wheel instructions and the Original Tank Sticker documenting this
as a true LT-1.
