about our dealership
Seven Hills Motorcars is Cincinnati's premier Corvette specialist and a licensed and registered auto dealer by the State of Ohio.  With many years of focused experience I specialize in 1957 to 1982 Corvettes.  There is no other dealership that can better meet your needs if you would like to buy, sell, or just find out more information about your Corvette.  This is simply a one man operation, and this is not my full time employment.  I do it because I enjoy it.  I am a collector and enthusiast and therefore look for cars that excite me.  I do not purchase at dealer auctions; each car is hand picked by me because it is special or rare to me and because I like it.

Seven Hills Motorcars is glad to offer this 1972 big block Corvette coupe for sale.  This Corvette is an awesome driver and we have it priced to sell.  The car looks great, runs great, and is an absolute blast to drive, especially with the extra power from the big block.  It is blisteringly fast.  This is an excellent opportunity to own a very desirable Corvette at an unbeatable value.  One could easily buy the car now and sell it for more than the purchase price with minimal work and effort.  This Corvette has been well maintained by its previous owners.  There is a large stack of very extensive service and maintenance records that are pictured below and accompany the car.  The records show that, dating back to June 1994, the car had a 454 ci engine and 86,689 miles at that time.  A professional appraisal was done to the car in September of 1994.  The appraiser had very high praise for the car and a copy of this appraisal is shown below in the photos, or you can click here.  This is one of the best values for any "chrome bumper" big block Corvette on the market right now.  Please peruse all of the photos 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.  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.

Exterior

The black exterior is in nice driver condition.  As one can see in the photos the finish has nice gloss, deep shine, and smooth finish.  The chrome bumpers and other bight work on the car look great overall.  There are no major imperfections that have been intentionally excluded from the photos.  There are some small blemishes that were too faint to show up in photos, but nothing that is really stands out from about five or ten feet away.  The paintjob has some age and blemishes, which is evident in the photos.  The hood seems like a shade off the rest of the car.  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 The car does have rust issues in the typical areas.  The wheels are in good condition with a nice finish.  The tires appear to have about 80% tread left.

Window Date Codes

Please note that all of the side glass on this car, the "Astro Ventilation" door glass, and even the pop out rear window, is date coded and original as each piece predates the car's body build date of June 30, 1972 (K30). Original glass is a good indication that this car has had no major accident history and never sustained significant damage.

Driver: IY - "I" denotes June and "Y" denotes 1972 meaning the driver's side window was made in June of 1972.

Passenger: GY -
"G" denotes April and "Y" denotes 1972 meaning the passenger's side window was made in April of 1972.

Rear: GY -
"G" denotes April and "Y" denotes 1972 meaning the rear window was made in April of 1972.

 

Interior

 

The saddle interior of the Corvette is in fantastic condition.  The seats look almost brand new 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 does show its age, but has no rips, tears, or holes.  This includes the rear carpet, which is often neglected.  The dash and console are in nice condition with no fading or sun damage.  The door panels are in excellent condition with no cracks, splits, or wear on the arm pads.  The aftermarket radio turns on, lights up, but does not play sound.  Most importantly, the original dash was not cut for the installation of the radio. This car has not been smoked in; there are no burn marks or aroma whatsoever.


Mechanical

This car seems to be in good mechanical condition.  It is an exceptional driver that feels great on the road.  The car starts right away every time, idles well after warm-up, and runs well.  There is no smoke when starting or driving the car.  Luckily, the previous owners were very meticulous and kept extensive service records on the car for almost the past 20 years.  A receipt from Corvette Central in September of 2009 shows the previous owner ordered parts to do a rebuild on the front end with new big block front springs, tie rods, ball joints, and bushings.  Looking at the car now, these parts still look new.  The service records show that in 1998 the engine was removed from the car and received a rebuild for the bottom end with a new crankshaft and bearings.  The transmission shifts well throughout the power band.  There is a receipt dated April 5, 1994 showing the transmission was rebuilt when the car had 85,993 miles.  The brakes do not pull to one side or the other.  Also, the engine compartment is clean and nicely detailed as one can see in the photos.  This Corvette is extremely fast with a ton of power and not for the faint of heart.  The horn works as do the power windows, and gauges (with the obvious exception of the clock and the battery gauge, which just stopped since we have had the car).  The vacuum system for the headlights and wipers has been mostly removed as well as the heater core and blower, which is visible in the photos.  Nothing sounds like a big block except the real thing and this car sounds absolutely awesome with a very aggressive and healthy tone from the exhaust.  Not enough can be said as to how much of a pleasure it is to drive this car, especially with the extra power form the big block and the t-tops out on a beautiful day.


Overall
Condition

 

Overall, this 1972 Corvette is in great driver condition.  It is an excellent value for a big block and we have priced it to sell.  This car turns heads and gets ton of attention wherever it goes.  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, with 1968  and 1972 being the most desirable.  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.
