1972 Chevrolet Chevelle

HIGHLIGHTS: Wow! This Chevelle is one bad ride! Red on black! Over $40k in receipts since 2018 alone! 582 Merlin III V8! Tire killer!

BODY OVERVIEW: The body on this Chevelle is in good condition, and appears to be an older restoration that has been given new life under the hood. Purchased by the current owner several years ago, this car has been used as a weekend warrior!

PAINT CONDITION OVERVIEW: We can't think of a better color choice for a Chevelle of this vintage than red with black stripes! This car is sure to turn heads while parked, which is to say nothing of when it is burning rubber! The paint appears to be an older repaint, and is what we would describe as driver condition as it is showing some normal age and wear.

INTERIOR CONDITION OVERVIEW: The only color interior to put in a red Chevelle is black! Black bucket seats with the console give this Chevelle that textbook muscle car feel, and although the interior looks to have been redone a number of years ago, it is in good overall condition and could be described as good, driver quality. The vinyl seats are comfortable, and the horseshoe automatic shifter makes you feel like you're piloting a rocketship!

MECHANICAL OVERVIEW: While this Chevelle retains a classic, familiar exterior look, it is anything but underneath the cowl induction hood. There sits a 582 Merlin III V8 engine with Patriot heads, Patriot headers, an Edelbrock intake, and a Holley Sniper fuel injection set up. The engine and install alone was nearly $8,000 when it was done in 2018! Tack on another $1,500 for the Sniper kit (not including installation!) and we are rapidly approaching the $10,000 mark--and that's just the engine.

Underneath, this car is equipped with dual Pypes mufflers, UMI Performance front sway bar, CPP control arms, and a variety of polyurethane bushings. Take a look at the underside, and you'll also notice a Milodon oil pan. Power front disc brakes ensure that this Chevelle stops safely, and that's the only thing more important than making sure a car can go!

WHAT YOU'LL LOVE ABOUT THIS CAR: The $40,000+ in documented upgrades, but above all the way it sounds--if you've ever wanted to dust the rafters in your garage, firing this car up in there will take care of that!

WHAT YOU MIGHT HATE ABOUT THIS CAR: If you're looking for an immaculate trailer queen that looks like it's never been driven around the block, this car is not for you.

DOES IT NEED ANYTHING? The only items we noted as inoperable were the heater and reverse lights.

WHAT BUYER IS LOOKING FOR THIS CAR? Anyone with a heavy foot looking to get the lead out!

The majority of these vehicles are considered classics or antiques, meaning they are older vehicles with sometimes dated automotive technology. We are not an expert in the construction, engineering, finishes, materials or components of these vehicles. Our employees are a team of talented individuals with a history in the classic car industry.

Dealership assumes no responsibility for any repairs needed to the vehicle and it's the buyers sole responsibility for any repairs that might be needed.

If marked "Numbers Matching" or "Original Mileage", the consignor(current owner) states this vehicle as such. Given how easy it is to create a “clone” or “tribute”, we cannot guarantee the authenticity of any and all claims. Customer is encouraged to verify this information on their own, prior to purchase.

We can assist you in delivery through our network of private and commercial carriers most of which can deliver the vehicle to your driveway. We assume no responsibility for damages or delays incurred once a vehicle is in a shipper's custody.

Because we advertise each vehicle with so many third-party affiliates, it is the customer's sole responsibility to verify the accuracy of the price with the dealer. All advertised prices exclude local, state, government fees and taxes and dealer documentation fee. Pricing is subject to change without notice. A dealer documentation fee of $250 will be added to the purchase price at the time of sale.

Vehicle availability is not guaranteed and subject to prior sale. Regardless what is agreed to verbally, we cannot guarantee a vehicle will be held for a potential buyer without a non-refundable deposit collected to hold the vehicle. Contact the dealership about pricing to place a deposit on a vehicle.

Our preferred and most secure form of payment is a bank wire transfer. We can accept checks, but note that any form of a check will have a minimum hold of 10 business days. This includes cashier's checks, certified checks, or bank checks of any kind. For cash received in the amount of $10,000 or more, we will complete an IRS Form 8300.
