Seven Hills Motorcars is
Cincinnati's premier Corvette specialist anda
licensed and registered auto dealer by the State of Ohio. With
many years of focused experience I specialize in 1963 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 tremendously proud to offer this gorgeous
1972 Corvette in excellent condition and loaded with options such as
air conditioning, power steering, power brakes, and power windows. This car looks amazing,
runs great, and is an awesome driver. The previous owner of
this car is an aircraft mechanic, which is a very good person to buy
a car from. He was very particular and meticulous with this
car and all of the service and maintenance records he kept for it.
There are receipts and documentation included that
total over $6500 in work that has been completed on the car over the
past 4 years. So, as one can imagine, this car is very well
sorted and ready to be taken out and driven. The car needs
nothing that I am aware of and I wouldn't hesitate to hop in and
take a road trip.
This Corvette gets a ton of attention going down
the road, especially with the beautiful color combination.
I cannot even count the number of compliments I have received
about this Corvette.
Please peruse all of the photos and
number below to get a true sense of how exceptionally nice and
correct 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 "37" is the body
style, 2-door sport coupe. The fifth digit is the engine,
K, correct for an 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 19,640th Corvette made for

"V" means the engine was built in the Flint, MI plant. The
"04" is the fourth month of year and the "10" is the
day of the month meaning the engine was assembled on
April 10, 1972. This is correct as it precedes the build
date of the car.
This means the motor was intended for a 200hp Corvette with
an automatic transmission, which is correct for this car.

block was cast on March 20 1972, which is correct as it
predates the assembly date of the engine.

The right exhaust manifold has the correct

Intake Manifold Casting Date

is the last digit of the calendar year. So the intake was cast on
March 21 1972, which is correct as it
predates the assembly date of the engine.

a/c compressor is correct with a 1131002 part number printed
on the sticker.

Transmission Date Code

January first of the calendar year in which the model year
was first produced, in this case 1971. So the transmission
was made on the 448th day starting from Jan 1, 1971, which
is March 23, 1972.
The "L" denotes March and
the "Y" denotes 1972 meaning the windshield was made
in March of 1972.
The "L" denotes March and

window was made

and Mike Antonick's Corvette Black Book.
The bright blue
is in nice driver condition. As one can
see in the photos,
the paint has nice gloss, good
shine, and smooth finish.
The chrome bumpers
and other brightwork on the car show well with no major rust or
pitting. Often many Corvettes will have particularly
chipped up front ends, this car does not.
There are no major
imperfections that have been intentionally excluded from the
photos. There are some touch ups, bumps, and other very small imperfections that were
too faint to show up in photos, but nothing that is really
noticeable from about five or ten feet away.
The wheels are in
great condition with a nice bright finish and no curb rash on
the beauty rings.
The tires appear to have about
Window Date Codes
Please note that
ALL of 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 April 25, 1972 (I25). Original glass is a good
indication that this car has had no major accident history
and never sustained significant damage.
The black interior of the Corvette looks
The seats are in
very good condition with no holes or split seams. They are not worn
through in the typical areas such as where the driver gets in and out.
Please note that these appear the
original seats, not some cheap aftermarket replacement. The carpet throughout the car is
also in excellent condition with no stains, rips,
This includes the rear carpet,
which is often neglected.
The dash is in
great condition with no cracks, fading, or sun damage. The
door panels, also original, are in wonderful shape with no
splits or cracks. The original jack and jack handle are still with the car in
the rear storage compartment. The aftermarket stereo radio
works well. Most importantly, the radio is a Corvette
specific unit designed to fit into the stock location so the
original dash has not been cut or modified. This car has
not been smoked in; there is no aroma whatsoever. Corvette
interiors are not known to wear well and the excellent condition
of this interior is a testament
to the meticulous care this car has received..
As stated above, this car is in seems to be in
very good mechanical condition and all of the accessories work.
The service records that accompany this Corvette are invaluable
and an excellent indication of the high level of care this car
has received. It is an exceptional driver that feels great
on the road and at highway speeds.
starts right away every time, idles well, and runs well.
The car shifts well throughout the power bank.
The brakes are responsive and do not pull to one side or the
other. Also, the engine compartment is clean and
as one can see in the photos. The horn works as do the lights, all
the obvious exception of the clock),
wipers, and blower for the heater and a/c.
The entire vacuum
system for the headlights and wiper door works correctly from
both their respective switches on the dash and override
switches. This Corvette
has plenty of power and is very fast.
enough can be said as to how much of a pleasure it is to drive
this car, especially with the t-tops out on a beautiful day.

previous owner's time includes:

This is an additional to normal maintenance items like,
spark plugs, wires, distributor cap, rotor, oil change,
Overall, this 1972 Corvette is in
driver condition. It is a great value and we have priced
it to sell. This car turns heads and gets ton of
attentions wherever it goes. Numbers matching is extremely
important in Corvette pricing. 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. The value of these cars has gone up exponentially in recent
years. They are all solid investments for a collector.
Cars like this are the Barrett Jackson stars of the future.
One could easily enjoy this vehicle for several years and sell
it for more than the purchase price with minimal effort.
