A quality, fully restored, and ready to rock Stingray is something
to get excited about. But you might have noticed that there is
something very unique about this 1972 Chevrolet Corvette. If you
haven't picked up on it yet, read on...
1972 was the last year for the chrome front end on the C3, and this one sends it out with a truly unique tribute. The flip-up headlight panels have been professionally smoothed over to give the shark-nosed Stingray an even sleeker racecar-like appearance. And since you have to see at night, a full headlight package has been built in the lower part of this custom front end (in some ways it looks like a Ferrari Daytona during the daytime.) The custom chrome bumper and custom air dam complete the attention-grabbing setup. And the desire doesn't stop at the front end. This coupe went through a full restoration in the last few years, and so the Rally Red paint has slippery shine that rolls evenly off the super straight body panels. It's the kind of presentation that's just begging to be shown off in the sunshine. And of course to go with Rally Red paint on this speedy Chevy are the iconic Rally wheels.
Inside, you see the evidence of investment as the correct saddle interior has been restored to near perfection. The tan looks great against the red paint, and the matching door panels, carpeting, console, and dash have the kind of uniform presentation that will fill you with pride in your ride. Corvettes have always been a great personal sports car in providing performance features with plenty of creature comforts to make it a great long-distance cruiser. As the driver, you get an upgraded three-spoke wood and chrome steering wheel. Just ahead of that are the large dual pod gauges for the speedo and tach, and just to the side are a full set of auxiliary readouts. You even have an updated AM/FM/cassette stereo to keep you entertained. This is a T-top coupe with the final year for the removable rear window. So, you can really let the wind run through the cabin. And on those hot summer days when all this breeze is not enough, there's modern R134a air conditioning to keep you cool, too.
This is a car that's made to show off, so even the engine bay doesn't disappoint. Lift the hood to see a nicely detailed package with a crisp and clean presentation. With all the components in top condition and the belts & hoses looking so tidy, there's nothing to get in the way of seeing the shine on the air cleaner, or the Chevy orange on the valve covers and block. But the beyond the immaculate appearance lies the trusty 350 cubic-inch V8 heart that made these Chevys famous. This has been enhanced for power and reliability thanks to an Edelbrock four-barrel carburetor, performance intake, and Mallory ignition. There are even performance headers that feed a rumbling dual exhaust. This car was made for taking the long way home, and components like the fully independent sports suspension, power steering, three-speed automatic transmission, and four-wheel disc brakes prove that this custom Corvette is a great all-around driving classic.
Complete with owner's manual, you're looking at a total package with a great presentation and a very unique appearance. Turnkey customs like this have a way of flying out of our showroom quickly. Call now!!
