Bright, loaded, and iconic, this 1972 Chevrolet Corvette is done the way you
want. So look over everything from the slick paint, to the A/C interior, to the
four-on-the-floor and soon you'll see a classic that really gets it right.
Red Corvettes are so iconic that they write songs about them, but the factory
never gave the Stingray anything like this. You're looking at a recent application
of Red Pearl paint. And the deep metallic luster loves the sunshine. As the light
rolls over this whole car it really showcases all the best pieces of the C3, like
the pointed shark-like nose, long hood with power bulge, crisp fenders, flying
buttress rear, and well-integrated spoiler. And like a good all-American they
also left room for the brightwork to stand out with the bumpers, rockers,
luggage rack, and Rally wheels all shining like mirrors. It's a total package
that's designed to be memorable from the first glance.
Nothing looks more sophisticated against a deep red exterior than a tan leather
interior. And you get to share this with the world thanks to the T-tops. You can
really tell they made a solid investment inside just by how everything remains
clean and bright. This has all the right factory pieces like the high-back bucket
seats, large speedo and tach directly in front of you, and full auxiliary readout
to the side. Plus, there are great upgrades like the wood-rimmed sports steering
wheel and Hurst shifter. You also have an AM/FM/cassette stereo with digital
tuner for upgraded driving tunes. This is the final year for the removable rear
window. So, you can really let the wind run through the cabin. And on those
hot summer days when all this breeze is not enough, there's factory air conditioning
to keep you cool, too.
Under the hood is what's believed to be the original 350 cubic-inch V8. It has
been rebuilt, and now it looks great with the bright block and plenty of polished
components added. The way it fires up reaffirms the proper care this Corvette
has received over the years. The V8 inhales deeply from a four-barrel carburetor,
and it exhales with a sweet sound from the dual exhaust. And you have complete
control over this whole powerful package thanks to the four-speed manual
transmission. And control is a central theme to a Corvette. That's why you also
have power steering, four-wheel disc brakes, and a fully independent sport suspension.
This car has a solid feeling on the road, and the huge stack of build receipts and
maintenance records prove the investments they made to keep it feeling this way.
