vehicle description

 

 

Seven Hills Motorcars is very proud to offer this gorgeous 1972 Corvette in excellent condition loaded with options such as A/C, which actually blows cold, power steering, power brakes, power windows, automatic transmission, and T-tops with the pop-out rear window. This car looks great, runs great, 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.  The low mileage is verified not only by the condition of the car, but also the clear Ohio title, pictured below, showing the mileage as "Actual."  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, it is stamped with "CE" and a sequence number. A "CE" block usually stands for Counter Exchange, Chevrolet Engine, or Created Engine. Basically, a "CE" engine is a replacement engine that came from a Chevrolet dealer. We do not have documentation as to when this "CE" block was installed in this Corvette, but most often the "CE" blocks were installed as warranty replacements when the car was new. There is a photo of the engine pad below for any perspective buyer to make his or her own judgments. The engine block does have a 3790010 casting number, which was used in Corvettes from 1969 through 1979.

The 1972 Corvette was truly the end of an era.  1972 was the last year to feature chrome bumpers and 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 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.

Exterior

The bright red exterior is in great driver condition. As one can see in the photos the finish has fine gloss, deep shine, and smooth finish. The chrome bumpers and other bight work on the car show well overall. The wheels and center caps are in excellent 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 blemish on the right front corner by the headlight with a specific photo below. 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. As one can see in the photos of the underside of the car, this Corvette looks solid.

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

Window Date Codes

Driver: LN - "L" denotes March and "N" denotes 1971 meaning the driver's side window was made in March of 1971.

Passenger: AN -
"A" denotes September and "N" denotes 1971 meaning the passenger's side window was made in September of 1971.

Rear: AT -
"A" denotes September and "T" denotes 1971 meaning the rear window was made in September of 1971.

Please note that the "Astro Ventilation" door glass and rear glass are date coded and original as each piece predates the car's body build date of October 6, 1971 (C06). 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 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 well 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 and console are in nice condition with no fading or sun damage. There is one crack in dash cap, but as one can see in the photos it is not very noticeable. The door panels are in good condition overall. The T-top headliners are not warped or sagging, which is a common problem on this era Corvette. 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 an exceptional 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 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 all the exterior lights, turn signals (as one can view in the video), all gauges (with the obvious exception of the clock), wipers, and blower; even the a/c works. The entire vacuum system for the headlights and wiper door works correctly from both their respective switches on the dash and override switches; their operation can be viewed in the video. The wiper door could use some adjustment. As with most of the driver quality cars, this one would probably benefit from a tune up and some general maintenance. 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. The Ohio title indicates the low mileage as "Actual" and the previous owner stated the mileage was original, but we have not additional documentation to verify the mileage. 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.
