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 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.

vehicle description

 

 

Seven Hills Motorcars is tremendously proud to offer this numbers matching 1972 Corvette Coupe for sale with just over 72.000 original miles.  Everything on the car works; it is in excellent cosmetic and mechanical condition.  The red on black color combination is not only super sharp and highly desirable, 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 ownership.

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 Corvette, please feel free to send an email or give me a call.

 

condition

 
 

Exterior

The Mille 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.

This car 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.  Original glass is a good indication that the car has not been in a major accident and never sustained any significant damage.


Interior

The black 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 photos.

 

Mechanical

 

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.  The transmission 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 Condition

 

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.  Corvettes 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.  Thank you for looking and please email or call with any questions.
