We love to treat Chevelles like blank canvases. The results are amazing, but it also really makes take notice when we find a cool-looking 1972 Chevrolet Chevelle hardtop with its original number-matching big block 396 that that we believe has ultra low mileage.
It's easy to understand why you find this Chevelle so visually stunning. It has had a recent respray that gives the black an unmistakable high gloss shine. It also doesn't hurt that the contrasting white stripes were painted on to complete the correct SS 396 look. Fit and finish are quite good, and that helps highlight the excellent condition of the body. Cars that may have never been apart in their lifetime are special, and this one drives like it. A true, functioning, cowl-induction hood and hood pins add an aggressive look, and the SS gear in 1972 included a blacked-out grille and a few well-placed badges around the perimeter. Overall, it's a great aggressive appearance with just the right amount of shine from the window trim and tightly fitting chrome bumpers. But more than just intimidating, this coupe gets its premium details right, too. The newer black vinyl roof and proper SS wheels makes for a total package that will fill you with pride.
A clean white interior is a great way to get a premium appearance while retaining that factory-correct look. The bucket seats are armchair comfortable, and since we believe this coupe has averaged less than 530 miles annually, the little seat time makes them exceptionally fresh. The pristine color is easy to maintain because the vinyl cleans up in a snap. Plus, carpets are black so you never have to worry about taking your shoes off before hopping in and going for a drive... and that's exactly what this car was built to do. You have the correct dual-spoke steering wheel, comfortable center console, iconic horseshoe shifter, and sporty round gauge panel. Even the long trips are a breeze thanks to provisions for factory air conditioning and an upgraded AM/FM stereo with input for modern music players (the original AM radio also comes with the sale.)
Under the hood is what we all love to see – big block power. The numbers-matching 396 cubic-inch V8 (well, really 402ci) looks fantastic with the bold orange block looking like its radiating power out of the tidy black engine bay. And yes, that's a proper cowl induction element on the hood and around the air cleaner. This original powerplant also still has an original Rochester Quadrajet four-barrel carburetor. And you instantly know that there was serious time and money invested in the care and maintenance simply how this big bock fires up with turn key ease. While you'll love to hear the V8 growl out of the dual exhaust, it also feels great on the road with easy driving features like the TH400 three-speed automatic transmission, Chevelle's supple suspension, and front disc brakes.
Rarely does a great-looking Chevelle also come with such a great pedigree. Complete with owner's manual, and jack in the trunk, you already know what kind of special package this is, and so you also know you have to act fast to take it home. Call now!!
