For Sale: 1972 Chevrolet Corvette in Macedonia, Ohio

Vehicle Description

Award-winning pro-built custom with just test and tune miles. LS6-spec 454 with 4-speed. Beautiful paint and bodywork with integrated '67 hood scoop. Custom upholstery, ice cold A/C. Stunning Corvette that drives as great as it looks.The problem with custom Corvettes is that a lot of guys just don't know when to stop. Corvettes aren't exactly subtle, which is why we like this gorgeous 1972 Corvette coupe so much. At a glance, it's instantly recognizable but then you start to notice all the little tricks that set it apart. The big one is that hood with a 1967 big block hood scoop grafted in place-it looks like it was born there. All the emblems were shaved and then the fiberglass was smoothed and blocked to give it a wave-free surface for that gorgeous paint job. The paint is a proprietary mix called Goetz Blue, and it's somewhere between blue and silver with enough metallic in it to make it glow in the sunlight. Photos just don't quite do it justice. All the chrome and stainless trim is new, so it sparkles against the blue bodywork, and fit and finish are far superior to anything GM was doing in 1972. It's still 100% Corvette, but someone was sweating the details when this one went together. The black and gray interior was custom stitched from leather and suede over the original bucket seats, again invisibly blending old and new. You'll quickly note blue LEDs in place of the original courtesy lamps, so it has a high-tech look the moment you open the door, and there's a lovely mahogany steering wheel in place of the plastic original. Factory gauges monitor the thumping 454 up front and they all work properly when you're racking the Hurst 4-speed shifter through the gears. The radio is a custom digital AM/FM unit and the car includes such niceties as power windows and a modern A/C system whose controls are neatly stashed out of sight in the ashtray (along with a USB charging port). The wiring is new from front to back and the entire interior was insulated for sound and heat before the upholstery was installed, so this is a surprisingly comfortable Corvette. Carpets, seat belts, and other soft parts were replaced during the build and there are reproduction door panels for the right look. The cargo bay was restored and there's plenty of room for T-top storage. For an early C3 with side pipes, this one is remarkably civilized.'Civilized' is a relative term, of course, because under the hood is a 454 cubic inch V8 built to LS6 specs. That's 450 horsepower and 500 pounds of torque, and when you crank the key every one of those ponies shows up ready to rock. There's a 750 CFM Edelbrock 4-barrel carburetor on top, an Accel electronic ignition system, and a decent cam inside that gives it that thundering idle. It's a little grumpy when it's cold, but after running for a few seconds idles properly without any stutters or other big engine fussiness and after that first start each morning, it'll start instantly the rest of the day. It's actually pretty impressive. There's a big aluminum radiator with two 4200 CFM electric fans, so overheating is a thing of the past, and both power steering and power brakes are part of the package. A Super T10 4-speed manual shuttles power back to the original rear end with 3.08 gears inside, so it remains a fantastic high-speed cruiser and even with the side pipes, it settles right down on the highway. A giant 1.125-inch front sway bar, poly bushings, and Poly Smart rear camber rods tighten up the handling and all the brake lines and hoses are stainless steel so they'll last forever. The underside of the body and all the wheelwells were coated with spay-on bedliner for durability (this is a show car but it was built to drive) and the ride height is exactly right. 18-inch aluminum wheels have a suitably retro look and carry staggered 245/45/18 front and 275/40/18 rear performance radials.We're really impressed with this car. It stands out without being too aggressive and the attention to detail is superior. It's built to drive, yet the only time it was shown it won first price. If you like the combination of savage power, surprising comfort, and stunning good looks, this Corvette deserves a closer look.
