vehicle description

 

 

Seven Hills Motorcars is very proud to offer this beautiful 1971 Corvette convertible in excellent driver condition. The car looks greats, runs well, and is an awesome driver that is ready to be enjoyed. This Corvette is priced to sell, always turns heads, and gets a TON of attention going down the road. The market on these chrome bumper Corvettes is red hot right now. The car is currently running a 350ci crate motor with 300hp, which is 100hp over the stock engine. The receipt for the crate motor is included with the car and pictured below. Please note that this is not some generic engine or cheap rebuild, this is a genuine GM Goodwrench engine produced and assembled by General Motors. Thankfully, and very important for the value of the car, the original numbers matching engine is also include with the car and pictured below. This scenario is really the best of both worlds. Whoever buys the car will get the advantages of the modern, more reliable, and more powerful crate engine without sacrificing originally or value of the car. This Corvette is owned free and clear with no liens by Seven Hills Motorcars, the title is NOT branded as salvage or rebuilt, and photo of the clear Ohio title showing Seven Hills Motorcars as the owner is pictured below. Please peruse all of the photos, numbers, video, and information below to get a true sense of how nice and clean this Corvette really is.

As a side note, this Corvette is not a dealer auction vehicle. We hand pick each car after careful inspection. 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.

 
item number description*
VIN 1Z67K2S502915 The first digit, "1," indicated the Chevrolet division of GM.  The "Z" is the series, Corvette.  The "67" is the body style, convertible.  The fifth digit is the engine, K, correct for a 200hp car.  The sixth digit, "2," indicates the model year, 1972.  The "S" is the plant where the car was produced, St. Louis.  The last five digits are a sequence number so this is the 2,915th Corvette made for 1972.
Body Build Date B20 "B" corresponds to September, and the 20 is the twentieth day of the month meaning this Corvette body build date is September 20, 1971.
Engine Code V0915 "V" means the engine was build in the Flint, MI plant.  The "09" is the ninth month of year and the "15" is the fifteenth day of the month meaning the engine was assembled on September 15, 1971.  This is correct as it precedes the build date of the car.
Suffix Code CKX This means the motor was intended for a 350ci 200hp Corvette with an automatic transmission, which is correct for this car.
Engine VIN Stamping 502915 The last 6 digits of the car's VIN, 502915, are stamped on the engine pad meaning this engine is original to this car.  
Engine Block Casting Number 3970010 The engine block has the correct 3970010 casting number.
Engine Block Casting Date I 8 1 "I" is September, "8" is the eighth day of the month, and "1" is 1971 so the engine block was cast on September 8, 1971.  Which is correct as it predates the assembly date of the engine.
All Wheels K 1 1 9 9 AZ "K" means the wheels are original Kelsey-Hayes as they should be, the first "1" means they were made at the Romulus, MI plant, and the second "1" means they were made for the 1971 model year.  The first "9" is the ninth month of the year and second "9" is the ninth day of the month.  This means the wheel was made on September 9, 1971.  "AZ" is a code that was used on wheels intended for a 1971 Corvette.
Transmission 72 CK The "72" is the model year, 1972. The "C" means the transmission was made for a Chevrolet vehicle, and the "K" means is was intended for an 200hp Corvette, which is correct for this car.
Transmission Date Code 250 The assemble date code for the 1972 model year starts with the first day of the calendar year in 1971.  This means "250" is the 250th day starting with January 1, 1971, which indicates the transmission was assembled on September 7, 1971.

condition

 
 

Exterior

The Elkhart Green exterior is in decent driver condition. As one can see in the photos, the finish has nice gloss and good shine. Often many corvettes will have particularly chipped up front ends, this car does not. The underside of the front end is in good condition as evidenced by the photos. The convertible top is virtually brand new and shows no signs of wear.  The rear window is perfectly clear with no yellowing or fogginess. The top itself operates well and is relatively easy to raise, lower, and latch down. The vinyl covered hardtop is in great condition and looks wonderful with only a few very small blemishes. The vinyl hardtop is much more valuable and desirable than a normal painted top, it also looks amazing with Elkhart Green. As with many C3 convertibles, the fit of the side windows is not perfect. There are no major imperfections that have been intentionally excluded from the photos. The paint does show some age and has some blemishes as one can see in the photos so I would encourage anyone to view the car in person if possible. The two most noticeable spots are the on the left door by the mirror and behind the right rear tire; there are specific photos of both areas below. The frame looks very solid around the "key hole" as one can see in the many photos of the underside of the car. The factory original P02 wheel covers are in nice condition with a great finish and absolutely no curb rash.


Interior

The saddle interior of the Corvette is in terrific condition. The seats look just in person just as they do in the photos with no rips, split seams, or excessive wear. We have included photos of the areas most prone to deterioration. The carpet is in very nice condition with no tears, holes, or major stains. This includes the rear carpet with is often neglected. The door panels are in good condition and are not cracked in the typical area where the driver rests his elbow. The dash is in excellent condition and is not faded or cracked at all. The radio in the car is a refurbished original 1972 Corvette radio so most importantly the dash has never been cut for and aftermarket installation. The car has not been smoked in and there is no aroma what so ever.


Mechanical

This car is in very good mechanical condition and everything on the car works. The mechanicals and the way this car feels out on the road are some of its strongest points. As one would expect with the modern crate engine the car starts right away every time, runs well, and idles well. The car drives terrifically; it is tight on the road and at highway speeds. There are no strange noises or vibrations. The transmission shifts smoothly. The brakes are responsive and do not pull to one side or the other. This Corvette has plenty of power and is very fast with 100hp over the stock engine. Also, the engine compartment is beautifully clean and detailed as one can see in the photos. The horn works as do all the exterior lights, all gauges (even the clock works), and wipers. The entire vacuum system for the headlights and wiper door works correctly from both their respective switches on the dash and override switches. The headlights come up, but sometimes the right light can be a bit slow. The car does sits particularly low. The blower for the heater and a/c works on all speeds. This Corvette is an original a/c car from the factory and all of the major a/c components are included. The condenser and lines are still on the car.  The compressor and brackets come with the so it should be relatively easy for the future owner to reinstall the a/c back on the car. Not enough can be said as to how much of a pleasure it is to drive this car, especially with top down on a beautiful day./font>


Overall
Condition

Overall, tthis 1972 Corvette is in nice driver condition. Numbers matching is extremely important in Corvette pricing and with the original engine included this car is quite correct. There are photos below of the VIN stamp on the engine block and transmission codes. In my opinion and based on our experience the "Chrome Bumper" cars from 1968-1972 are the most collectible and hottest in the entire Corvette market right now and out of those year 1969 and 1972 are the most desirebale. The value of these cars has gone up exponentially in recent years. They are all solid investments for a collector.

 

The originality, matching numbers, two engine, and beautiful color combination make this car especially important and difficult to duplicate. This Corvette always gets a ton of attention driving down the road. It is very apparent that the vehicle has been well taken care of by its previous owners. The prices of C3 Corvettes have increased drastically over the past years. Pickup and shipping of the original engine is the responsibly of the buyer. We can help load the engine onto a truck, but be have no source for shipping it. One could easily enjoy this vehicle for several years and sell it for more than the purchase price with minimal effort.

 

Thank you for looking and please email or call with any questions./font>
