GORGEOUS STINGRAY, #S MATCH 350, 4-SPEED, T-TOPS, PS, PB, AC, GREAT COLORS, NICE

The story on this gorgeous '72 Corvette Stingray is just one of a clean, honest car that doesn't pretend to be anything other than a classic American sports car. Covered in a repaint of the famous Monaco Orange, this chrome bumper C3 is a perfect choice for any serious collector. Powered by the numbers matching 350 V8 and the original 4-speed manual, this Corvette is ready to hit the open road today!

There's no denying how desirable these '72s are. The final year of the front chrome bumper definitely is something worth searching after. The car has definitely been resprayed at some point in its life but it shows very well for its age. The only area with any signs of age is around the luggage rack where the filler that was used to fill in the holes has started to crack - pretty common on these. Someone could just add the luggage rack on the car and then not have to deal with the cracking there anymore. However, given its age, its in great shape! Both the front and rear bumpers were sent off and re-chromed and really stand out today. The great thing about this car is that in this condition is shows very well, but it's also one that can be driven anywhere without worry of it being too nice.

The engine bay is very authentic for 1972. The car comes with a lot of receipts from the previous owners, some of which date all the way back to 1991. Over the years we can see that someone has overhauled a lot of the bolt-on equipment. In 2003 the engine bay received a new alternator, water pump, fuel pump, upper radiator hose, lower radiator hose and plugs and wires. Under the air filter someone has upgraded the original rochester carb has been upgraded with a new 4-bbl carburetor. The engine fires up very easily and runs very well. The transmission shifts very smooth and the tires appear to be relatively new with a lot of tread still on them.

The interior is in amazing shape considering the majority of it appears to be original. Again, based on the receipts we can tell that the driver's and passenger side glass has been replaced and that the door panels have been replaced. There are no tears or rips in the seats, carpet, or door panels. The dash appears to be original and shows no cracks or warping, which again points to it being in a heated and cooled garage for the majority of its life. The car left the factory without a ton of options, but it does have T-tops, A/C - which still blows somewhat cold, could use a charge to be ice cold. It does have power steering and power brakes, but no tilt or telescopic and no power windows. But, that's what we like about this car! There's nothing for it to hide behind, this Corvette rides amazing and with the T-tops out, you won't even notice that you are missing some of those creature comforts. Careful care was taken to ensure that the headlights and wipers work as they should off the vacuum lines, they move a little slower than original, but they do all work.

Don't miss out on the chance to own this collectible. It doesn't get much better than a '69 Corvette drop top in the spring! Call today for more information!
