about the 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 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.

vehicle description

 

 

Seven Hills Motorcars is tremendously proud to offer this gorgeous numbers matching 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.

 

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. 

&n 

item number description*
VIN 1Z37K2S519640 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 1972.

condition

 
 

Exterior

The bright blue exterior 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 80% tread left.

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.

Interior

&n 

The black interior of the Corvette looks splendid.  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, or holes.  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.. 

 

Mechanical

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.  The car 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 nicely detailed as one can see in the photos.  The horn works as do the lights, all gauges (with 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.  Not 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.

Some of the work completed on the car during the previous owner's time includes:

Valve Guide Seals
Control Arm Bushings
Rear Main Seal
Recore Radiator
Front Springs
Lower Ball Joints
Shocks
Alignment
Pinion Seal
Head Gasket
A/C Repair and Conversion to 134a
Heater Core

This is an additional to normal maintenance items like, spark plugs, wires, distributor cap, rotor, oil change, etc.


Overall
Condition

 

Overall, this 1972 Corvette is in amazing 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.
