Chevrolet Corvette 1972 Description

If you've been looking for a Corvette that hits all the right notes like a performance-built big block 454 (original motor included, too), header-fed side pipes, and a four-speed, this 1972 Sting Ray coupe is the answer.There's something great about the earlier C3 design. It combines the long and low American look with the flying buttress rear and Kamm-back styling of the Europeans. This car appears to have been well maintained throughout its life, with the fiberglass panels fitting nicely to hug the body's every curve snugly. The code 912 Sunflower Yellow is the factory correct color that has been resprayed recently in this coupe's life. The earlier C3s are also for the chrome lovers, and so it's very important that the front panel, rear bumper, and all the other brightwork be complete and pristine as this one. And yes, we did not forget about those massive shiny side pipes that will instantly attract a crowd. Of course, no classic Chevy sports car looks complete without the iconic rally wheels.It's no surprise that this factory yellow car was also ordered with the perfect complementary interior color, black. It's one of the best hues for the inside because it allows the silver accents to pop on everything from the door panels to the three-spoke steering wheel. For the driver, the dual pod readouts mean the all important tachometer is large and directly in front of you. Plus, the full gauge package is prominently to the side. You can take off the T-tops and even remove the rear window to listen to the roar of the engine singing right next to your ear. If that's not sufficient, there's an AM/FM/cassette radio in the dash.Under the hood is the best treat. That big block 454 fills the engine bay, and you know this one was built to show off. That's why even the spark plug wires match so nicely with the body, the braided hoses look fantastic, and there's a mirror-like finish on the valve covers and air cleaner. But more than just for show, this V8 was built to go! That's why the big block also has a four-barrel carburetor, Edelbrock performance intake, and Hooker headers. You've seen those wicked side pipes, and you're imagination must be running wild about how fierce the sound they let out is as this monster motor opens up. Best of all, you have complete control of this soundtrack thanks to the four-speed manual transmission. But more than just go fast, the four-wheel disc brakes and modern BF Goodrich T/A tires ensure superior grip. For you true collectors out there, the original numbers-matching 454 block also comes with this sale (not installed). So you can enjoy your sports car to the fullest and still have its authentic heart waiting in the wings.Beautifully built and expertly modified, this bold yellow Corvette begs to be driven and makes an impression everywhere it goes. This is a lot of muscle for the money. Don't wait, call today!!
