Seven Hills Motorcars is very proud to offer this beautiful 1972 Corvette
Coupe in excellent condition. The
car has been completely restored and is very clean. This Corvette
looks great, runs awesome, and is a spectacular driver that feels
great out on the road. Included with the car is extensive
documentation of the restoration with photos and countless receipts for
over $13,900 spent on the car. The body was removed from the frame
and everything was restored from the ground up with high performance Vette Brakes suspension with monoleaf suspension up front and a built
355ci engine. While this Corvette is not completely numbers matching
it does have a 3970010 engine block, which is a casting number that was used on Corvettes in
1972. This car rolled off the assembly line on March 27, 1972 (H27).
We have this Stingray 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 in years to come as the market on C3 "chrome bumper" Corvettes
from 1968 to 1972 is absolutely red hot
right now and on the rise. There is no way someone could buy a
similar Corvette and restore it to this level of quality for
anything near our asking price. Please peruse all of the photos,
video, and other information below to get a true sense of
how nice 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 car 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.
The red exterior is in
nice driver condition. As one can
see in the photos, the finish has great gloss, deep shine,
and smooth finish. Both doors open
and shut nicely. Please take a moment to look at all the
underside photos of the car. It is nearly as clean underneath as it is on top. The wheels and center caps
are in spectacular condition with no curb rash and a great finish.
The tires have about 90% tread left. There are a few
blemishes around car that were too tiny to show up in pictures, but
nothing else that is really noticeable from about five or ten feet away. This Corvette has absolutely NO RUST ISSUES. The frame
is totally solid around the "key hole" area in front of the rear
tire and we have seen no evidence of corrosion around the
windshield or "birdcage." These are the most notorious spots for
rust on a C3 Corvette. We have included many photos of the
underside to show how great it looks.
This Corvette looks as good in person as it does in

Please Please note that
the "Astro Ventilation" door glass is date coded and
original as each piece predates the car's body build
date of March 27, 1972 (H27). 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 is in fantastic condition.
It was basically completely redone when the car was restored.
The seats look virtually brand new with no split seems,
rips, or signs of wear. The carpet is in great condition
with no tears, holes, or stains. This includes the rear
carpet, which is often neglected. The dash and console are in
with no fading, cracks, or sun damage. The door panels are
in wonderful condition with no cracks. This car has not been smoked in and
there is no aroma of cigarettes at all. Please note that the lap belts belts
retract properly. This is a very common problem on this era
Corvette and a small, but very important, detail most buyers
do not think to check.
The interior looks as good in person as it does in
Corvette seems to be in good mechanical condition. It starts right away every time,
idles well, and runs great. There is a receipt with the car for
the engine rebuild and one for reconditioning the transmission. The springs,
all bushings, tie rods ends, ball joints, and basically the
whole suspension is also new and was redone during the
restoration. There are receipts for over $3,500 just for the
suspension. The car is an awesome driver that is tight and
handles like it is on rails with the Vette Brakes suspension. In the video below one can observe
the car accelerating on the highway up to about 70mph, shifting
through all the gears, braking to stoplight, and going through
some curves. Please note that it drives smooth and the
car performs quite well overall. There is no blue smoke when starting or driving the
car. The brakes are responsive. The transmission shifts well. Also, the engine compartment is beautifully clean and
detailed as one can see in the photos.
The horn works as do all
the indicators, wipers, and exterior lights. The blower
for the heater works on all speeds. The vacuum for the
headlights and wiper door works with no effort or
binding in the mechanism. Their entire operation can be
viewed in the video below. All of the gauges work with
the obvious exception of the clock. The temp gauge seems
to work, but the fuse has blown a few times. Some of the fiber optics work.
Please note that car operates with an ignition switch
button the console. The car also has an Edlebrock
Air/Fuel Ratio monitor installed in the dash in place of
the radio. Not
enough can be said as to how much of a pleasure it is to drive
this car, especially with T-Tops out on a beautiful day.
on the fiber optic light monitoring system. We
consistently receive many questions about the purpose of
this system; exactly what it is and what it does. The
sole and main idea behind the fiber optic light
monitoring system is to simply confirm that all of the
exterior lights, headlights, indicators, tail lights,
etc., are working and to make the driver aware of a a
burned out bulb. Each lamp on the outside of the car has
an actual fiber optic cable the runs to an indicator on
the center console. There are nine small indicators on
the console and each has its own finer optic cable. When
the bulb goes on the light travels through the fiber
optic cable and illuminates the corresponding indicator
on the console. If someone does not remember to plug the
cable end into the lamp housing, does any work to the
center console, or if there is a break in a connection
or anywhere along the cable, that indicator no longer
works. As one can image, over time this is very common.
Overall, this 1972 Corvette is in
very clean condition. In my opinion and based on our
experience the "Chrome Bumper" cars from 1968-1972 are
the most collectible and hottest in the entire Corvette
market right now and out of those years 1969 and 1972
seem to be the most desirable. The excellent condition, the
restoration, and the extensive documentation make
this car especially important and difficult to
duplicate. The photographs shown in the pictures below are
just a fraction of what is included in the binder that
comes with the car. This Corvette always gets a ton of attention
driving down the road. It is very apparent that the
vehicle has been well taken care of by its previous
owners. The prices of C3 Corvettes have increased
drastically over the past years. They are secure and
wise investments for a collector. 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 do not
hesitate to email or call with any questions.
