1972 Chevrolet Corvette
ONE-OWNER, #S MATCHING 350V8, MSD FUEL INJECTION, FIRST TIME FOR SALE SINCE '72!
HIGHLIGHTS: Survivor car! Just one owner since new! Offered for sale for the first time since 1972! Numbers-matching survivor with known history since new!
BODY OVERVIEW: The body on this 1972 Chevrolet Corvette is in impressive original condition! With is said to be 91,000 actual miles on this unrestored car, it is looking pretty good for 50 years old! Though this car has received a repaint in the past, even from the underside it is clear that this car has been loved since day one.
PAINT CONDITION OVERVIEW: Originally finished in silver, this Corvette received a repaint and a color change many years ago under its current, original owner. It currently presents in excellent driver condition, though there are some minor nicks and scratches as shown in the photos that are typical for an older paint job.
INTERIOR CONDITION OVERVIEW: The interior appears to be the original black vinyl that is looking surprisingly good for its age! Though some wear is expected, the interior presents quite nicely. The seat condition coupled with the very presentable plastic and dash conditions shows the care this car has received by its original owner over the years. This car has been loved!
MECHANICAL OVERVIEW: Under the hood sits the original Chevrolet 350V8 mated to a TH400 3-speed automatic transmission. This Corvette runs like a champ! Worthwhile upgrades include Mallory electronic ignition, an aluminum intake manifold, an aluminum radiator with dual electric fans, and a new exhaust system complete with O2 sensors for the aftermarket MSD modern fuel injection system. Talk about a car built to be driven!
WHAT YOU'LL LOVE ABOUT THIS CAR: The overall originality and known ownership history! This is a car you just don't see with this kind of history anymore.
WHAT YOU MIGHT HATE ABOUT THIS CAR: Though this Corvette remains unrestored to this day, it isn't 100% factory original, because it has been driven and enjoyed on a regular basis since it was new. If you're looking for a super low-mileage example with all OEM GM/Delco parts, this isn't it.
DOES IT NEED ANYTHING? The reverse lights, wipers, and A/C are not currently operational.
WHAT BUYER IS LOOKING FOR THIS CAR? Survivor cars like this can be tough to make a decision on what to do with, especially a one-owner example like this. Sort it out and drive it as-is? Use it as a base for a full custom build or over-the-top resto? The choice is yours! No matter what you have in mind, this Corvette could be a great option!
