|2) This is an all original survivor with some of the best paperwork I have seen. I have listed /owned/sold a few high line corvettes for myself and other friends and this one must be in the top 10 I am listing. I have personally driven it and feels very, very strong (I own a 72 LT-1 myself) and with possible exception of future carburetor rebuild to make it perfect I doubt that anyone would disagree as to the performance of this car. As 1972 brought the last of the LT-1 cars and the first of the Elkhart green, combined with the last year for a chrome bumper car and the first for the actual VIN # to decode an LT-1 (and big block that year) in the car it makes for an interesting piece of corvette history. This car comes with a book of paperwork that shows ownership retention to detail as to keep it documented for future history in the Corvette world. Even back then someone cared enough to keep all the original paperwork and documents as they had the foresight to know this would be a sought after car. Condition is remarkable as to the function of the car, everything works properly, so you will not be sorting through all the gremlins to make it work as it should. Interior speaks volumes as to the care a survivor has been given, the body is in great shape and should not be restored in my opinion but rather preserved as a true survivor. Car has its all original body and paint, much new to the mechanical s. Original protec-O -plate. It is a wide ratio 4 speed with 3.70 rear. All original motor. When the car was judged as a 2nd place NCRS red ribbon, much of the deficits were corrected (new heater core, cigarette lighter /seat did not retract well, one marker light out, and headlamps returned to T-3's. Color codes from the trim plate. Assembly date is D29. 78,400 miles. Bid ended at $26,585 (RnM). February 2, 2016. Sold for $29,001 on June 13, 2016.
