The original V8, upgraded side pipes, and all that chrome are some of the headlines that make you want this 1972 Chevrolet Corvette convertible. But really, you know you're hooked the moment that you can get a red Stingray at such a value price.
Yes, we all love a classic Corvette in a well-presented shade of red, but there is much more going on here. For many of us the earlier C3s hit all the right notes, including its chrome shark-nosed front, bright Rally wheels, distinct Kamm-back, and two-piece rear chrome bumpers. Plus, there are nice upgrades, like the LT1-style hood and side pipes. You see all of that nicely thanks to a well-maintained look. The headlight covers are flush; the doors shut with authority; and the red paint has a nice gloss in the sunshine. So this really has the look of a well-respected droptop classic. In fact, the consignor sold the car years ago and loved this one so much that he bought it back and held onto it again for years.
If you like the way the black folding roof looks against the red paint, then you'll love the full black interior. The color was an upgrade later in life, and so you have a fresher deep black on this well-presented convertible. Around the time of the restoration, there was also a Kenwood AM/FM/cassette stereo with CD changer cleanly installed. So you get to choose the best in driving music. And that's the point of classic like this. It's a car built to be driven with nice features like the high-back bucket seats, center console, three-spoke sports steering wheel, large speedo and tach, and a full set of auxiliary gauges set at eye-level.
Under the hood is the numbers-matching 350 cubic-inch V8. It has a great look of originality with the bold block, ribbed Corvette valve covers, and an air topper that still has a “Keep your GM car all GM” decal. The three-speed automatic transmission is also the numbers-matching unit. While that gives you the originality you'll love, the upgraded side pipes give this an extra dose of growl and flair. It's be a great car to take anywhere, and it's easy to drive everywhere thanks to power steering, fully independent sports suspension, and four-wheel disc brakes.
This is the car someone loved so much that he bought it twice. So you know it's the kind of well-respected classic we're all looking for. Call now!
