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.
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.
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
Body Build Date
"B" corresponds to
September, and the 20 is the twentieth day of the
month meaning this Corvette body build date is September 20, 1971.
"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.
This means the motor was intended for a 350ci 200hp Corvette with an
automatic transmission, which is correct for this car.
Engine VIN Stamping
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
The engine block has the correct 3970010 casting number.
Engine Block Casting Date
I 8 1
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
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.
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
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.

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.
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
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>
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.
