Chevrolet Chevelle 1972 Description

It's got the look of a Chevelle SS. It's got a great-running stroker motor with a 5-speed, plus a cool color combination. Need we say more? If you're looking for a slick piece of muscle that's both affordable and nicely finished, this '72 Chevelle SS tribute might be your best choice. It does everything well, and the moment you pop the hood and show off that thundering 383, people are going to sit up and pay attention.The horsepower wars were all but over in 1972, but the Chevelle still looked the part of a street brawler. This one started out as a clean southern car anyway, so making it straight was easy. Bright electric blue with white stripes isn't how this one came from the factory, but nobody's going to argue with the results. The gaps are tight, the bodywork was properly blocked, and there's a deep shine that suggests a lot of effort went into the job. It's two-stage urethane, so it'll look great for years to come and with that stance, nobody's going to mess with you on the street. A lot of A-body enthusiasts like the later single-headlight look for its cleaner lines, and combined with the blacked-out SS grille, reproduction SS badging, and flashy chrome bumpers, this is one heck of a good-looking car. There's also a functional cowl-induction hood, which is practically mandatory if you want to build a high-performance Bowtie muscle car.The interior remains fairly stock, and with black bucket seats it has a purposeful look that serves the Chevelle quite well. The seat covers are new as is the dash pad, so it looks and feels fresh when you slide behind the wheel. The door panels and carpets are new, too, so everything has just the right look with nothing looking too old or too new. The industrial-strength look of the Hurst shifter sticking out of the transmission tunnel like that suggests this car was built for one thing and one thing only, and with five gears inside, it's a lot more usable than it was in 1972. Round gauges include a tachometer, and there's a set of Auto Meter auxiliary dials under the dash where they can keep an eye on the warmed-over small block. An AM/FM/cassette stereo makes it comfortable to drive when you're not running hard, and the tall fifth gear mans you can actually enjoy the music at speed. The trunk is remarkably clean, showing correct spatter-finish paint and a reproduction mat.GM was still doing their best to deliver horsepower in 1972 and offered a wide variety of engines in the mid-sized Chevelle. However, none of them were as potent as the 383 cubic inch stroker motor that now lives between the fenders. Topped with dual quads and aluminum heads, it's seriously nasty and will make you forget your big block dreams. Edelbrock supplied the valve covers and carburetors, an MSD ignition lights it up, and long-tube headers make for a fat torque curve. The chassis is fairly original and quite solid with no rust issues to speak of, showing good floors, a new Flowmaster exhaust system with X-pipe, a fresh gas tank, and the aforementioned Tremec 5-speed gearbox. There's a 12-bolt out back with a Posi inside and fat sway bars at both ends means this A-body doesn't mind going around corners. Classic Cragar mag wheels wear fat 225/70/15 front and 275/60/15 rear BFGoodrich T/A radials.A big, bad Chevelle with a host of upgrades, this is your opportunity to get into an attractive and nicely sorted piece of muscle that's ready to enjoy.
