Car history:
When this car rolled into the showroom here at Streetside Classics, one of our co-
workers said simply, Corvettes dont get much nicer than this, and Im inclined
to agree. 1972 was the final year for the slender chrome bumpers front and rear,
and while horsepower seemed to be down, that was entirely due to the change
from gross to net measurement systems, not because of any hardware changes.
This lovely 72 Stingray has been nicely restored to a level usually reserved for
early cars with big block engines, and includes some nice options like factory A/C
as well as a matching-numbers drivetrain. Reasonably priced Corvettes are out
there, and there just cant be many nicer than this. The paint was refinished about
1,100 miles ago, and thanks to a lot of TLC throughout its life, the car needed no
bodywork to achieve these results. Code 945 Bryar Blue is one of the less common
colors for 1972, accounting for only 1,617 units that year. The finish is handsome,
not too light, not too dark, but a cool medium blue that looks great on the timeless
Stingray shape and might be compared to modern Nassau Blue on some of the
newer Corvettes. All the panel gaps are factory correct, and theres a lot less
orange peel in the paint than you received in 1972, thanks to careful prep and a
good amount of time invested in buffing the finish. And when it comes to C3s,
youre either a chrome bumper guy or a rubber bumper guy. This one sports the
original style chrome units, which nicely compliment the egg crate grilles up front.
With this owner, the chrome was clearly a must-have, as the chrome on this car is
top notch. The stainless appears to be all original, and even the accessory luggage
rack on the rear deck is a bright, shiny chrome finish with no issues. As a well-
maintained original car, the line between the original components and new pieces
is blurry, but thats a good thing. The entire interior shows just the right amount of
patina, and its very difficult to determine what has been replaced. We know the
door panels and seat covers are new, and perhaps even the carpets, which are
protected by a set of matching black rubber floor mats. The gauges are all crisp
and their lenses are scratch-free, more proof that someone cherished this car
from day one. The center console is excellent, and houses the shifter for the 3-
speed automatic, as well as an unusual AM/FM radio, which was still something of
a novelty in 1972. The A/C blows ice cold thanks to a recent R134a upgrade,
although youll want to pull the T-tops off every chance you get to enjoy open air
motoring. This car also features a removable rear window, so the experience is
almost like that of a roadster for half the price. The engine is the original,
matching numbers ZQ3 350 cubic inch V8, which was the base engine in 1972.
Nevertheless, it makes an impressive 360 pounds of torque and moves the
Corvette with enough potency that most cars are still advised to leave it alone.
The engine bay shows signs of loving care throughout its life, and though much of
it has been restored and the engine rebuilt, the condition of the inner fenders and
firewall suggest that this car has always been clean. Wearing a fresh coat of
Chevy Orange paint, the engine really stands out, and details like the chrome air
cleaner and ignition shield add a lot of eye candy. With just under 1100 miles on
the rebuild, the small block V8 runs beautifully, starting almost instantly and
happily running through the rev rage every chance it gets. Power steering and
brakes make it a pleasure to drive, and all the major components are either new
or rebuilt, ensuring a long, reliable life ahead of it. And if you have concerns about
this cars authenticity, have a look underneath, where youll find a solid, original
chassis with no issues or warning signs. The original TH400 3-speed automatic still
shifts the gears, and a new dual exhaust system was installed during the rebuild.
Floors are solid, the brakes are rebuilt, and the fuel system has been freshened,
making this a car that you can drive anywhere with confidence. And I have to say
that while most Corvettes wear Rally wheels, I really like the wheel covers on this
one, which are correct and seldom seen, and it rides on a fresh set of 215/70/15
BFGoodrich T/A radials. Clean, honest Corvettes dont get much nicer than this,
especially if youre the kind of guy who likes to just jump in and go. This is a very
clean, well-maintained car with barely 1000 miles on it since the extensive
restoration work was complete. Thanks to the rumbling small block under the
hood, its a party to drive, and there arent many cars that will generate more
attention than this one on a warm summer day. With a setup like this, you can
also fire up the A/C and head cross country, because C3s make fantastic long-
distance cruisers with their comfortable ride and reasonable storage behind the
seats. This one represents a lot of fiberglass for not a lot of money. Call today!
