If you're looking for a fun and eye-catching weekend driver, this little yellow Corvette is for you! In 1973, Chevrolet did away with the lovely chrome front bumper in lieu of a safety “5 MPH” bumper to meet new federal safety standards. That makes 1972 the last year for the classic chrome front and rear bumpers! For this reason, the 1972 Corvettes are highly sought after by collectors and enthusiasts.
This Corvette is wearing what very well could be the original Sunfire Yellow paint (paint code 912) or at very least an older repaint. Either way, the paint is beginning to show its age, but this can be seen as an advantage for frequent use around town. This is the Vette you can drive and enjoy without worrying about a pop-up rainstorm. Additionally, the original bonding strips are present behind the fenders and the quarters both indicating minimal or no extensive repairs.
Pop open the hood and you'll be met by a 350ci Chevrolet small block V8 that doesn't carry any horsepower robbing traits like A/C, Power Steering or smog equipment. Th engine is not the original, but good news, the correct original engine is included with the sale. Very few options are present, but what it does have you'll appreciate - t-tops and the highly desirable side pipes.
The interior features manual locks and windows, and is mostly complete with the notable presence of wear normal for a car this age. What this car lacks in options it makes up for in fun in the form of a 4-speed manual transmission. The chrome side pipes is a nice addition that really makes the yellow paint pop! This Corvette is sure to turn heads anywhere it goes. Whether you want a turn-key cruiser that won't break the bank, or are looking for a vehicle to take to the next level, this is the Corvette for you.
