|For sale here is a stunning 1972 Corvette convertible with both tops (the black soft convertible and painted with black headlined hardtop) with only 500 miles on the professionally rebuilt drivetrain, including the 383 ci stroker motor, 4 speed transmission, clutch and rearend differential. The entire suspension has been upgraded including tubular A-frames and a 3-way adjustable monoleaf rear package. The car has never been wrecked or damaged.
The paint is less than 2 weeks old and is a gorgeous candy 4-color hue consisting of orange, bronze, deep red and maroon. You can see all four colors fade and pop with the contours of the car, either in or out of the sun as this is a very high grade professional paint job.
The black interior carpet, seat covers, door panels and console are all new. There is an upgraded quartz clock and a new digital original style radio.
Both the wheels and tires are brand new. The title is clear and in my possession.
There are also many extra parts included, such as the inner rear tail light lenses with the white backup centers, a chrome fuel tank cover, extra door handles and emblem flags.
I have all the documentation and receipts regarding the rebuilds, paint and parts. Other documents include and original 1972 Corvette ad (ironically, showing the model in orange), an original factory fold out “Sports Car Buyers Guide”, the 1972 Corvette Owner’s Manual, a factory assembly manual, the obligatory Chilton’s manual, and about 75% of the factory original build sheet that was found on top of the fuel tank!!

OTHER 1972 CORVETTE FACTS:
Only 6,508 convertibles were produced,
1972 was the last year the Corvette had chromed metal bumpers, front and back,
1972 is considered the very last year of the muscle car era.
I purchased this car from the 2nd owner who has had it since 1976. He had all the mechanicals done over the past 5 years and decided it was time to go fishing instead of hotrodding. The Corvette has always been garaged in a smoke free home. It sounds as incredible as it looks and runs even better. The engine builder was quoted as stating the motor is around 390 horsepower with somewhere around 450 lbs ft torque.
Please don’t hesitate to contact me directly with any questions you may have. I will get back to you as soon as I am able. If there are any areas you want to see pictures of, please don’t hesitate to ask. I will be happy to assist with pickup coordination regarding any auto transport company you may choose bringing the Corvette to your destination. There is a clear and current title to the car.
I’m looking to get $35K but will consider all reasonable offers and I may consider a partial trade depending on what you have to offer.
Many thanx for looking and have a great week!
