vehicle description

 

 

Seven Hills Motorcars is very proud to offer this numbers matching 1972 Corvette Convertible that is a particularly nice driver and priced to sell.  The car looks good, runs great, and is a blast to drive.  This is an excellent opportunity to own a very desirable Corvette at an unbeatable value.  One could easily buy this car now and sell it for more than the purchase price with minimal work and effort.  The car is finished the very rare and desirable color combination of Bryar Blue (945) over Black (400).  This is the original and correct color scheme, verified by the trim tag pictured below.  Only 1,617 Corvettes received Bryar Blue paint in 1972, which was the only year that color was ever offered. 

The previous owner was a prominent Corvette restorer that used this car as a fun driver.  He has known the car for years, even before his ownership.  His restoration shop had serviced the car for the previous owner who was a local women.  This car has been well maintained.  It gets a ton of attention going down the road, especially with the rare and striking color.  I cannot even count the number of compliments I have received while driving this Corvette.  Please peruse all of the photos and numbers below to get a true sense of how original and nice this Corvette really is.

The 1972 Corvette was truly the end of an era.  1972 was the last year to feature chrome bumpers and and "egg crate" grill, it is considered to be the last year of truly classic Corvettes.  This model year is widely considered to be the best out of the entire C3 generation.  Years after were more at the mercy of insurance companies, fuel prices, and emission concerns, 1972 is considered the last true "vintage" Corvette.  It was also the last year to feature a pop out rear window on the coupe, and the first year that the way horsepower ratings are measured changed from gross to the more accurate net.  As in investment, the 1972 will always have an advantage and out perform other years because of its precedence as the end of a a very great period for Corvette and muscle cars as a whole.

As a side note, this Corvette is not a dealer auction vehicle.  Our Corvettes come from owners who expect their cars to go to someone that will give the vehicle the same care and attention as they did.  We invite and encourage you to examine the car in person or have the car inspected.  Please take the time to scrutinize each picture.  We photograph each vehicle to the greatest extent so you can feel confident about your purchase.  If you have a question about the Corvette, just give us a call.

 

numbers

 
 

Please note when checking the numbers that not only do the correct stampings and casting numbers appear on the parts, but all of the dates are also chronologically correct.  This means that all of the parts were made and assembled in the correct order.  For example, all of the dates for the individual engine components and the engine casting date should obviously precede the assembly date of the engine because the parts had to be produced before they could be assembled.  All of the parts I checked follow this rule and are dated correctly.

condition

 
 

Exterior

The Bryar Blue exterior is in presentable driver condition.  As one can see in the photos the finish has fine gloss, deep shine, and smooth finish.  The chrome bumpers and other bight work on the car show well for the most part.  The convertible top is in good condition with no rips or holes.  The rear window is clear and not yellowed or foggy.  The convertible top also operates properly.  There are no major imperfections that have been intentionally excluded from the photos.  There is some there imperfections, light checking, and bubbles that were too faint to show up in photos, but nothing that is really stands out from about ten feet away.  The paintjob has some age and blemishes, which is evident in the photos.  I have done my best to accurately and objectively photograph the car and show the flaws, but some are too small or cannot be picked up by the camera.  One should really view the car in person to get the best and most accurate idea of what the car really looks like.  For the most part however, the car looks in person as it does in the photos.  Bryar Blue is a beautiful color.  The way it is displayed in this ad will depend on each individual monitor and its settings, but the color is more of a blue-green.  The wheels are in great condition with a nice finish and no curb rash on the beauty rings.  The tires are literally brand new with less than 20 miles on them.

 

Interior

 

The black interior of the Corvette looks splendid.  The seats are in good condition with no rips, splits seams, or signs of excessive wear.  They are not worn in the typical areas such as where the driver gets in and out.  The carpet throughout the car is also in great condition with no stains, rips, or holes.  This includes the rear carpet, which is often neglected.  The dash is in great condition with no cracks, fading, or sun damage.  The original jack and jack handle are still with the car in the rear storage compartment.  The original radio will turn on and make noise, but does not get reception.  This car has not been smoked in; there is no aroma whatsoever.  Corvette interiors are not known to wear well and the excellent condition of this interior is a testament to the meticulous care this car has received throughout its life. 


Mechanical

The way this Corvette drives and the way it feels on the road are its strongest points.  This car seems to be in superb mechanical condition.  It is an exceptional driver that is tight on the road and at highway speeds.  The car always fires up quickly, idles well, and runs well.  The brakes are responsive and do not pull to one side or the other.  The brakes were just serviced with a new master cylinder and 4 new calipers.  Also, the engine compartment is clean and nicely detailed as one can see in the photos.  The transmission shifts well.  The car does put out a puff a smoke when it is first started, but does not smoke when driving.  This Corvette has plenty of power and is very fast.  The horn works as do the headlights, headlight override vacuum switch, all gauges (with the obvious exception of the clock), interior and exterior lights, wipers, wiper override vacuum switch, vent controls, and blower for the heater.  This car has a very healthy exhaust note.  It is not over loud or obnoxious, but sounds awesome and slightly aggressive.  Not enough can be said as to how much of a pleasure it is to drive this car, especially with the top down on a beautiful day.


Overall
Condition

 

Overall, this 1972 Corvette is in great driver condition.  It is a great value and we have priced it to sell.  This car turns heads and gets ton of attentions wherever it goes.  Numbers matching is extremely important in Corvette pricing.  In my opinion and based on our experience the "Chrome Bumper" cars from 1968-1972 are the most collectible in the entire Corvette market right now.  Of those years, the 1969 and 1972 are the most desirable.  The value of these cars has gone up exponentially in recent years.  The "Chrome Bumper" years have not had the detrimental over inflation that the mid year Corvettes have suffered from.  They are all solid investments for a collector.  Cars like this are the Barrett Jackson stars of the future.  One could easily enjoy this vehicle for several years and sell it for more than the purchase price with minimal effort.
