What's the right recipe for the baddest muscle car on the planet? Start with a 1972 Chevrolet Chevelle hardtop coupe. Then add the most aggressive paint job they ever put together. Add in a custom power bulge hood. And drop in a 454 big block V8. Either you can go scouring the country for all these components, or you can just pick this car for a surprisingly affordable price and go burn up the streets tonight.
For many, this is the last of the great Chevelle coupes. 1972 was final year for the pillarless hardtop design. The new federal bumper laws were not in effect, so those big chrome kings fit much snugger to the body, and the rear one still houses the taillights in a very cool way. As the last of the great ones, this custom coupe sends off the second generation Chevelle with an impressive bang. Flame Orange is the correct color for this car. It's very similar to the iconic Hugger Orange, but it has a deeper metallic element to make an even greater impact in the sunlight. When the glossy black SS stripes and coordinating black vinyl roof are added, the impression is a mix of premium and aggressive that is always memorable. Or maybe it's the hood pins, correct SS wheels, SS badging, and the custom 4-inch cowl induction hood that make the whole package a true standout.
Inside is everything you love in a classic Chevelle with one very key addition that you see the moment you open the door. The front bucket seats have been donated from a much more modern machine. It's not the most obvious addition visually because the stitching coordinates with the rear bench and the SS embroidery on the seatbacks. But the moment you sit down, the modern bolstering let's you body know this has all-day comfort. In between is a desirable center console with the iconic horseshoe shifter that makes this coupe really feel like a Super Sport should. It has all the right features for the driver, including the grippy sports steering wheel, and the proper round gauge dash with tach. Plus, there are all the authentic pieces that you love to see in classic cars like the hear/defrost sliders and the original AM/FM radio. But your favorite interior toy will undoubtedly be the gas pedal, which will let you play with the rumble from the dual exhaust.
Under that big hood is a big motor. Chevy's famous 454 big block V8 looks dressed to impress with the tidy presentation, bright valve covers, and large air cleaner that proudly announces the engine's dominant size. But more than just style, this has the substance of a large four-barrel carburetor, Edelbrock Performer RPM intake, and long tube headers. Backing up this powerplant is the reliability of an aluminum radiator with electric fan, and a stout GM three-speed automatic transmission. Keeping you in control on the road is the security of front disc brakes with drilled rotors, and the grip of BF Goodrich T/A tires at all four corners.
This Chevelle is a turnkey intimidation machine. And it's also a true classic that comes with documents like the original owner's manual. So yes, this is the best of the last great Chevelles, and since it's at a price that's easy to take home right now, you might want to hurry and stake your claim. Call today!!!
