vehicle description

 

 

Seven Hills Motorcars is very proud to offer this gorgeous 1972 Corvette in terrific driver condition loaded with T-tops and the pop-out rear window. This car looks great, runs well, and is an awesome driver. We have this car priced to sell and are offering 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 in the years to come. It gets a ton of attention going down the road and turns heads everywhere it goes, especially with the sidepipes. Please peruse all of the photos, video, and information below to get a true sense of how nice and clean this Corvette really is.

While the last six digits of the VIN are not stamped on the engine pad, the previous owner claimed this engine was a 350ci Chevrolet ZZ4 crate engine. The casting number on the block is 10243880, which would be correct for a Vortec or Gen I ZZ4 crate engine set up for a roller camshaft.

The 1972 Corvette was truly the end of an era. 1972 was the last year to feature chrome bumpers and "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 highly desirable year. It was also the last year to feature a pop out rear window, and the first year to reflect the change in the way horsepower was rated, 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 very great period for Corvette and muscle cars as a whole.

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.

 

 

condition

 
 

Exterior

The black exterior is in great driver condition. As one can see in the photos the finish has dazzling gloss, deep shine, and smooth surface. The black paint on this car very reflective and the small silver stripe on the hood is a tasteful touch. The chrome and other bight work on the car show well overall. The chrome Hooker sidepipes are a very nice touch and really compliment the black paint scheme. The wheels and center caps are in good condition with a nice finish and no curb rash on the beauty rings. Often Corvettes will have particularly chipped up front ends, this car does not. There are no major blemishes that have been intentionally excluded from the photos. There is a small blemished area on the corner of the right T-top with a specific photo below and a scratch on the right headlight. There are some other small imperfections around the car that were too faint to show up in photos, but nothing that is really noticeable from about five or ten feet away. The frame appears to be solid as one car see in the photos of the underside of the car. There appears to have been some rust repairs done to the "A" pillar sometime in the past and part of the VIN tag as been affected. As with many chrome bumper Corvettes, this one could use some adjustments to the windows.

The Corvette looks just as good in person as it does in the photos.

Window Date Codes

Driver: TN - "T" denotes August and "N" denotes 1971 meaning the driver's side window was made in August of 1971.

Passenger: VN -
"V" denotes December and "N" denotes 1971 meaning the passenger's side window was made in December of 1971.

Please note that the "Astro Ventilation" door glass is date coded and original as each piece predates the car's body build date of January 7, 1972 (F07). Original glass is a good indication that this car has had no major accident history and never sustained significant damage.

 

Interior

 

The black interior of the Corvette looks very nice. The seats look literally brand new with no split seems, rips, or signs of wear. The previous owner of this car owned an automotive upholstery shop so he did a great job with the seats. The carpet is also in like new condition with no tears, holes, or stains. This included the rear carpet which is often neglected. The aftermarket radio works, and most importantly the radio is a Corvette specific unit made precisely for this car so the original dash was not cut for the installation. The dash is in very nice condition with no cracks, fading, or sun damage. The door panels are in great condition overall and there is no cracking on the arm pads, which is a common problem on this ear Corvette. The T-top headliners are not warped or sagging. This car has not been smoked in and there is no aroma of cigarettes whatsoever.

 

The interior looks just as good in person as it does in the photos.

 

Mechanical

This car is in seems to be in good mechanical condition. It is a very good driver that feels great on the road and at highway speeds. There is no smoke when starting or driving the car. It starts right away every time, idles well, and runs well. The car also shifts well throughout the power band. The brakes have recently been services with no front calipers so they are responsive and do not pull to one side or the other. Please keep in mind that this car came from the factory with manual brakes so they do take a bit more pedal pressure than a modern vehicle. An upgraded HEI distributor and ignition system has been installed on the engine, however it has no tach drive. We would be glad to include a brand new HEI distributor, cap, rotor, and coil with the car for an additional $200. Also, the engine compartment is clean and nicely detailed as one can see in the photos. The horn works as do the turn signals (as one can view in the video), wipers, and blower on all speeds. All of the gauges work with the obvious exception of the clock and the tachometer, which needs a needle and lens. The speedometer works, but reads a bit high, the odometer does not turn. The vacuum system for the headlights works and the lights go up and down and one can observed in the video, though the right headlight bucket could use some adjustment. The vacuum for the wiper door works, but the door sometimes needs a hand up. The wipers themselves work, but the wiper drill could use some adjustment with the fit against the hood. As with most driver quality cars, this one would probably benefit from a some general maintenance and tlc to work out some bugs. This Corvette has plenty of power and is quite fast. Not enough can be said as to how much of a pleasure it is to drive this car, especially with and T-tops out on a beautiful day.


Overall
Condition

 

Overall, this 1972 Corvette is in nice driver condition. It is a great value and we have priced it to sell.  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. While this is not an NCRS Top Flight or Bloomington Gold car, it is a very nice driver quality Corvette and a great car for the money. 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 email or call with any questions.
