Seven Hills Motorcars is
Cincinnati's premier Corvette specialist. We are 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.

Seven Hills Motorcars is proud to offer this beautiful 1972 Corvette
This car is a great driver Corvette that needs nothing and is
essentially "turn key." It has been driven just over 73,000
miles since new.
The mileage is correct and original; this is verified on the title
with the mileage marked as "Actual."
This Corvette is finished in one of the most beautiful and desirable
color combinations of red over saddle.
leather seats, automatic transmission, power windows, power
steering, and air conditioning that actually still works. I
have received compliments whenever I have driven the car; it always
turns heads and gets a ton of attention.
The 1972 Corvette was
truly the end of an era. 1972 was the last year to feature chrome
bumpers and an "egg crate" grill, it is considered to be the last year
of the 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 American 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.
The Red exterior
paint is in nice driver condition. The paint’s finish has
a smooth finish and a nice gloss. Often many Corvettes
will have particularly chipped up front ends,
this car does not. There are numerous blemishes and cracks in the
paint all around the car, especially on the hood and front fenders,
that were too small or faint to show in in photos, but nothing
that is really noticeable from about 20 feet away. I have
specifically a couple photos some of the areas on the left front
fender. The chrome and other bight work looks great for a
The beauty rings look like fine with no curb rash. This car has
absolutely no rust issues.
The frame is totally solid and I have not noticed any
corrosion around the windshield or "A" pillar.
All of the "Astro
Ventilation" side glass is date coded and original to this
car as each piece predates the build date of the car, November 1,
1971. This is a good indication that the car has never been in
a major accident and never sustained any significant damage.

side window was made in July of 1971.
The saddle interior of the Corvette is in
very nice condition. The seats have no holes or split seams
and show little wear. I have specifically included a photo
of the area where the driver gets in and out because this it is
so prone to excessive deterioration. The carpet is also in
good condition with no rips, holes, or major stains. This
includes the rear carpet, which is often neglected. All of
the gauges work, with the obvious exception of the clock.
The dash and center console look awesome and have no tears,
cracks, or sun fading. The t-top storage bags are also
included with the car.
The car has not been smoked in, there is no ash in the ashtray
or aroma what so ever.
This Corvette is in terrific
mechanical condition with no issues. It is a 100% turn key
Corvette that needs absolutely nothing that I am aware of. It starts up quickly, runs well,
and idles well.
There is no smoke when starting or driving the car. Even
the original a/c still works and blows cold. The car
drives tight on the road and highway with no strange noises or

emphasize enough what a pleasure it is driving this car
especially with the t-tops out on a gorgeous day.
Overall the vehicle is in wonderful
condition for a driver. I have personally driven this
Corvette a coupled hundred miles this summer and it
has been flawlessly reliable. The early third generation
Corvette Stingrays are beyond doubt one of the most sound and
secure ventures one could make into the Corvette market.
The "chrome bumper"
from 1968 to 1972 are highly desirable and have continued to go
up in value over the years with 1972 and 1969 being the most
One could easily buy this car now, drive and enjoy it for
several years, and then sell it for more than the purchase price.
