Seven Hills Motorcars is glad to offer this beautiful 1972 Corvette Convertible in great driver condition with a 4-Speed manual transmission. This Corvette looks good, runs well, and drives very nice. This engine in this Stingray is "Numbers Matching" with the last six digits of the VIN stamped on the engine pad, which is pictured below.

We have this car priced to sell and are offering an excellent opportunity to own a very desirable Corvette convertible at an unbeatable value. One could easily buy this car now and sell it for more than the purchase price in years to come as the market on C3 "chrome bumper" Corvettes from 1968 to 1972 is absolutely red hot right now and on the rise. Please peruse all of the photos, video, list of numbers, and other information below to get a true sense of how nice 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 car 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.

 

model description
 


The 1972 Corvette was truly the end of an era. 1972 was the last year to feature chrome bumpers and the "egg crate" grill, it is considered to be the last year of truly classic Corvettes. Years after were more at the mercy of insurance companies, fuel prices, and emission concerns, 1972 is considered the last "good" year. It was also the last year to feature a pop out rear window, 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.

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 1Z67K2S526913 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 26,913th Corvette made for 1972, this places the car's build date in July 1972, which does not match the date on the trim tag.
Body Build Date C07 "C" corresponds to October, and the "07" is the seventh day of the month meaning this Corvette's body build date is October 7, 1971.
Engine Code V0524 "V" means the engine was build in the Flint, MI plant.  The "05" is the fifth month of year and the "24" is the twenty-fourth day of the month meaning the engine was assembled on May 24, 1971.
Suffix Code CKW This means the motor was intended for a 350ci 200hp Corvette with a manual transmission, which is correct for this car.
Engine VIN Stamping 526913 The last 6 digits of the car's VIN, 526913, are stamped on the engine pad and pictured below meaning this engine is original to this car.
Engine Block Casting Number 3970010 The engine block has a correct 3790010 casting number a small block 1971 Corvette.
Engine Block Casting Date E 20 1 "E" is May, "20" is the twentieth day of the month, and "1" is the last digit of the calendar year so the engine block was cast on May 20, 1971. Which is correct as it predates the assembly date of the engine.
Transmission Main Case Casting Number 3925661 The main case of the transmission has the correct 3925661 casting number.
Transmission Side Cover Casting Number 3952648 The side cover of the transmission has the correct 3952648 casting number.
Bell Housing 3899621 The bell housing has the correct 3899621 casting number.
Expansion Tank 3016340 The Harrison expansion tank has the correct 3016340 stamping.
Expansion Tank Date Code 70A "70" is 1970 and "A" represents January so the surge tank is dated January of 1970.

condition

 
 

Exterior

The Dark Red exterior is in good driver condition and basically looks in person as it does in the photos. As one can see in the photos, the finish has nice gloss and deep shine. Both doors open and shut nicely. The convertible top was just replaced be the previous owner and looks brand new. The rear window is perfectly clear with no fogging or yellowing. The top also operates well and goes up and down easily. The wheels and center caps are in excellent condition with a great finish. The Goodyear Eagle GTII tires have about 80% tread left. The chrome and other bright work shows well overall for a driver. There are a few blemishes around car that were too tiny to show up in pictures, there is a spot near the left headlight and a blemish on the right read corner near the number with specific photos below. We have included many photos of the underside to show how it looks.

 

Interior

The Black interior of the Corvette is in good condition. The seats look just as good in person just as they do in the photos with no excessive wear or split seams. The seats are not worn in the typical area where the drier gets in and out. The carpet is in excellent condition condition as well with no stains, rips, or holes. This includes the rear carpet, which is often neglected. The gauge faces are clean and crisp and the lenses are clear. The dash looks awesome with no cracks or sun fading. The radio works and most importantly it is a Corvette Specific unit made for this car so the dash has never been cut or modified for an aftermarket installation. The dash and console are in great shape with no cracks, fading, or sun damage.


Mechanical

This Corvette seems to be in good mechanical condition. It starts right away every time and runs well. The car is a great driver that feels nice the road and at highway speeds. In the video below one can observe the car accelerating on the highway up to about 70mph, shifting through all the gears, braking to stoplight, and going through some curves. Please note that there are no strange noises or vibrations and the car performs quite well overall. The car runs cool and does not overheat. The transmission shifts well, does not pop out of gear, and the shifter is tight. The clutch feels good. The brakes are responsive and do not pull to one side or the other. This Corvette has plenty of power and is quite fast. Also, the engine compartment is clean and detailed as one can see in the photos.

The entire vacuum system for the headlights and wiper door works correctly from both their respective switches on the dash and the override switches. Their operation from both switches can be viewed in the video below. The headlights and wiper door occasionally cycle once when the car is first started. The horn works. The blower motor for the heater works on all speeds. All of the gauges work with the obvious exception of the clock. The speedometer works as one can see in the video, but the odometer does not work. As with many older carbureted cars it is a bit cold blooded. Not enough can be said as to how much of a pleasure it is to drive this car, especially with 4-Speed and the top down on a beautiful day.


Overall Condition

 

Overall, this 1972 Corvette is in wonderful driver condition. Numbers matching is extremely important in Corvette pricing. There are photos below of the VIN stamp on the engine block, suffix code, and engine assembly date. The convertible models always draw a great premium over the coupes. 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. The value of these cars has gone up exponentially in recent years. They are all solid investments for a collector. 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 do not hesitate to email or call with any questions.
