1972 Camaro 2 door coupe. Original vinyl roof and interior upholstery in excellent condition. Original 350 motor. Rebuilt Muncie M-20 4 speed transmission. Switched to Edelbrock carburetor, but have original. Car is stock/original(except normal wear and tear parts). Original AM/FM radio with original speaker in dash, original bias ply spare tire and jack and original rims with newer BF Goodrich tires. Runs and drives great. A/C works and retrofitted. Paint in good shape except for a few nicks on door edges-see pics. Has been repainted once on exterior, but it is the original color/stripes. We've owned it almost 8 years and have barely put 1000 miles on it. Hate to sell. Just about 64,000 original miles. Garage kept with cover over it. Receipts from Chevy on rebuilding transmission and air conditioner being retrofitted. Tried to take pictures of everything.
A little history-The 1972 Camaro suffered two major setbacks. The UAW strike at a GM assembly plant in Norwood disrupted production for 174 days, and 1,100 incomplete Camaros had to be scrapped because they could not meet 1973 federal bumper safety standards. Some at GM seriously considered dropping the Camaro and Firebird altogether, particularly while the corporation was under pressure to adapt its vast number of makes and models to difficult new regulations for emissions, safety, and fuel economy. Others pointed out the fiercely loyal followings the cars enjoyed and were convinced the models remained viable. The latter group eventually convinced those in favor of dropping the F-cars to reconsider, and Chevrolet would go on to produce 68,656 Camaros in 1972.
