For Sale: 1972 Chevrolet Chevelle in St. Louis, Missouri

Vehicle Description

By 1970, the horsepower race was in full swing with all automotive manufacturing firms offering multiple cars with big block V8 performance. Chevrolet introduced the mid-size, A-body Chevelle in 1964, offering many different body styles and a plethora of engines including three inline sixes, two small blocks and a big block 396. The next revision came in 1968 when the Chevelle embraced more of its muscle car lineage with a new body shape that would be slightly updated each year with the introduction of a new 454ci V8's coming about in 1970. Enhancements in 1971 revised the front and rear fascias, now with half as many headlights and twice the taillights as seen in 1970. And by 1972, Chevelles received a new twin bar grille design and single-unit parking/side marker lights on the front fenders, otherwise keeping the body unchanged to remain one of the most iconic and recognizable shapes of the muscle car era. In Super Sport trim, the 1972 models mandated any available V8, as well as HD suspension, SS emblems on a blacked-out grille, front fenders, & rear bumper, SS steering wheel, domed hood with hood pins, and 15" sport wheels.

Offered here is a complete frame-off restored 1972 Chevrolet Chevelle Super Sport Hardtop that is finished in eye catching Cranberry Red paint with Black stripes to match its Black vinyl interior. Built in St. Louis Missouri with a 350ci-2V V8 originally and then swapped to a performance built 1973 date-coded 454ci Turbo Jet V8 and matching TH400 automatic transmission from a 1973 Impala. At the back lies a 12-bolt rear end with 3.73 Posi-traction. This is a well-appointed Chevrolet with functional air conditioning, power disc brakes, power steering, Strato-bucket seats & center console, windshield washer, cowl induction hood with hood pins, dual outside mirrors, all tinted glass, pushbutton AM radio, roof rail & wheel lip moldings, and oval-tipped dual exhaust. A standout finishing touch for this beautiful Chevelle are chrome Coys wheels measuring 17x7" up front and 18x9.5" at the rear with tires measuring 235/50R17 in the front and 255/55R18 in the rear.

This Chevelle has some serious horsepower as the new 454ci Turbo Jet that was swapped in was customized and professionally built by Matt Johnson's Performance Speed Shop as part of the restoration. The engine was bored .030 and now measures 468ci and features improvements including TRW pistons, open chamber heads, Crane Cams camshaft, double roller chain with timing cover with adjustable cam button, Edelbrock Performer 2.0 aluminum intake, Edelbrock carburetor rated at 800cfm, Mallory Unilite HEI distributor & coil, billet radiator overflow tank; stainless steel fuel, brake, & transmission cooler lines, GM hoses/tower clamps, and undercarriage detail stickers on parts & suspension components. The undercarriage and chassis were treated to a complete restoration so the underside is as equally sharp as the topside!

An iconic muscle car with plenty of horsepower to back up the superb restoration results! You would be hard-pressed to find another Chevelle on the market with what this one already has to offer! A professionally restored and improved Super Sport hardtop with all the right options that is sure to turn heads on the street and at the shows. Just be sure to tell any friends riding along to hang on! Thank you for your interest in looking and please call with any questions or come to our showroom for a closer look!
