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 2004 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.

the car works; it is in excellent cosmetic and mechanical condition.
The red on black color combination is not only super sharp and highly
it is the original to the car as indicated by the trim tag pictured
below. This car was originally produced on February 7, 1972.
This is verified by the "G07" code on the trim tag. This car is
verified as having matching numbers by the last six digits of the vin,
513299, stamped on the engine pad. Next to the vin number is
stamped V0I27CKX. The "0I27" means the engine assembly was
completed on January 27, 1972. This is correct as it predates the
car's build date. The "CKX" is a suffix code used by GM for a
350/200 automatic car, such as this Corvette. The previous owner
of this car was in the military and his meticulous attitude shows in the
care and detailed attention that he gave this Corvette during his
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 "good" year. It was also the last year to
feature a pop out rear window, and the first year that the way
horsepower ratings are measured changed 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. I hand pick each car after careful
inspection. The cars I purchase come from owners who
expect their car to go to someone that will give the vehicle the
same care and attention as they did. Please take the time to
examine each picture I have provided. I photograph each
vehicle to the greatest extent so you can feel confident about your
purchase. If you have a question about the
please feel free to send an email or give me a call.
Miglia Red exterior paint is in great driver condition.
The paint’s finish has a very nice gloss and a smooth finish.
The car was painted a number of years ago so there is some age
on the paint and some small blemishes and spots
in the paint around the car that were too small to show up
in the photos, but nothing that is really noticeable from
five feet away with the
exception of the small chip on the driver's door that can be
seen in the photos.
Red is by far the most sought after color on any Corvette and
also the most striking.
Often many Corvettes will have
particularly chipped up front ends,
this car does not. The chrome bumpers are in
very nice condition and show very well. The tires show
almost no wear. There are absolutely no rust issue
at all with this car. There is no rust on the frame in
front of the rear tire around the "key hole" and no rust visible
on the "A" pillar or around the windshield.
still retains its original "Astro Ventilation" side glass.
Both sides are date coded "TN" meaning the side glass was made
in August of 1971, verifies them as original as they predate the
car's build date.
is a good indication that the car has not been in a major
accident and never sustained any significant damage.
leather interior of the Corvette is also in excellent
condition. The seats do not have any rips or tears and
look literally brand new. The driver’s seat is not worn
through in the typical places, such as where the driver’s
belt-line may wear the seat bolsters. The carpet is in great
condition as well with no holes or stains. Small
detail items such as the 3 rear compartment doors and frame
are cracked to pieces like one would usually expect to find.
The door panels are in nice condition, with the few typical
cracks on the drivers side with the driver's elbow would
rest. Fortunately, all of the weather stripping on
this car is soft and new feeling as it has been replaced
The dash and center console look awesome
and have no tears, cracks, or sun damage.
The aftermarket radio works and
sounds much better than the stock radio ever did. The
interior looks just as nice in person as it does in the
This Corvette is in
fine mechanical condition. The car needs no work or service at all
that I am aware of and is essentially, "turn key." The car starts
every time, runs well, idles well, and does not smoke at all. Like
most vintage carbureted cars it is a bit cold blooded. The car is
tight on the road and highway, it is one of the better driving chrome
bumper Corvettes I have owned. The brakes are responsive and do
not pull at all.
shifts smoothly throughout the power band.
This Corvette has plenty of power; it is
very fast and
very much fun to drive.
The headlights and wiper door both pop up quickly with no effort or
binding. All of the gauges work with the exception of the clock.
All of the interior and exterior lights work. Not enough can be
said as to how much of a pleasure it is to drive this car especially on
a nice day with the t-tops out.
Overall the vehicle is in outstanding
condition for a driver,
both the exterior
and interior as well as mechanically.
As an investment, a car with numbers matching, such as this
example, is almost essential. That fact coupled with
the highly desirable color combination make this car an
excellent candidate for appreciation.
from 1968 to 1972 are highly desirable and have continued to go
up in value over the years.
One could easily buy this car now, drive and enjoy it for
several years, and then sell it for more than the purchase price.
It always gets attention going down the road. The Corvette
always turns heads and is admired by every car enthusiast.
