about the 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 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.

vehicle description

 

 

Seven Hills Motorcars is tremendously proud to offer this completely restored 1972 Corvette in immaculate condition.  This car looks amazing, drives awesome, and is ready to be enjoyed.  It received a mild frame off restoration with some photos documenting the process below.  The body was removed from the frame, which was completely redone.  The body was also completely stripped in preparation for fresh coat of the correct Sunflower Yellow paint, which looks absolutely awesome.  This very rare and desirable color combination is correct and original, verified by the trim tag pictured below.  Sunflower Yellow is the second most rare color in 1972 with only 1,543 units produced.  The previous owner also just installed a brand new GM crate engine.  The car has been driven less than 1,000 miles since the installation.  The original numbers matching engine block is also included with the car if the previous owner wants it.  The previous owner was a car collector and Corvette enthusiast that was meticulous with his vehicles.  His attention to detail is evident in the excellent condition and high quality of work exhibited on this Corvette.

I have personally put many miles on this car.  Of the many Corvettes we sell this particular car is one of the absolute best drivers and the most fun.  I would not hesitate to hop in this car and take a long road trip.  This color gets a ton of attention and I cannot even count the number of compliments I have received while driving this Corvette.  Please peruse all of the photos below to get a true sense of how exceptionally clean and 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 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 Sunflower Yellow exterior is in stunning condition.  It is virtually perfect with hardly a nick anywhere on the car.  As one can see in the photos the finish has dazzling gloss, smooth finish, and deep shine.  The paintjob exhibits excellent professional quality and is only a couple years old.  Often many Corvettes will have particularly chipped up front ends, this car does not.  The underside of the front end, very fragile part of the car, is in great condition as evidenced by the photos.  The wheels are in superb condition with no curb rash and an excellent bright finish.  The chrome and brightwork on the car look splendid with no rust or cloudiness.  There are no major imperfections that have been excluded from the photos.  There is a small chip in the windshield.  Since the windshield is the original correct piece of glass I did not want to replace it.  If the buyer would like a new windshield installed prior to delivery of the vehicle I will include that in the purchase price.  This Corvette has absolutely NO rust issues.  The frame is totally solid with no rust in front of the rear tire and I have seen no evidence of corrosion around the windshield.  Obviously no car is truly perfect, but this is about as close as one could get for a "chrome bumper" Corvette in this price range.

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

Window Date Codes

Please note that all of the glass on this Corvette, even the pop out rear window, is date coded and original to the car as each piece predates the body build date of November 18, 1971, "D18" on the trim tag.  Original glass is a good indication that the car has not been in a major accident and never sustained significant damage. 

 

Windshield - YN - "Y" represents October and "N" 1971 so the windshield was made in October of 1971.

 

Driver's Window - YN - "Y" represents October and "N" 1971 so the driver's side window was made in October of 1971.

 

Passenger's Window - YN - "Y" represents October and "N" 1971 so the passenger's side window was made in October of 1971.

 

Rear Window - AN - "A" represents September and "N" 1971 so the rear window was made in October or 1971.

 

 

Interior

 

The black interior of the Corvette looks marvelous.  The seats look great with no rips, splits seams, or excessive wear.  They are not worn in the typical areas such as where the driver gets in and out.  The carpet throughout the car is also in "like new" condition with no stains, rips, or holes.  This includes the rear carpet, which is often neglected.  The console and dash are in great condition with no cracks, fading, or sun damage.  The original jack and jack handle are still with the car and stowed correctly in the rear storage compartment.  This car has not been smoked in; there is no aroma whatsoever.  Corvette interiors are not known to wear well and the excellent condition of this interior is a testament to the meticulous care this car has received throughout its life. 

 

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

 

Mechanical

This car is in awesome mechanical condition and all of the accessories work.  It is an exceptional driver that is tight on the road and at highway speeds.  There is no smoke when starting or driving the car.  The brakes are responsive and do not pull to one side or the other.  It starts right away every time, idles well, and runs well.  The car shifts great and the shifter feels very precise.  The engine has a mild cam that give the car a perfectly aggressive note and healthy exhaust tone.  Also, the engine compartment, even including the underside of the hood, is beautifully clean and detailed as one can see in the photos.  The horn works as do the headlights, headlight override vacuum switch, all gauges (with the obvious exception of the clock), all interior and exterior lights, wipers, wiper override vacuum switch, blower for the heater, and even the parking brake, which is a very common problem on this era Corvette.  Not enough can be said as to how much of a pleasure it is to drive this car, especially with the t-tops out on a beautiful day.

This Corvette runs and drives as well as it looks.


Overall
Condition

 

Overall this Corvette is in magnificent condition.  It is truly one of the nicest 1972 Corvettes on the market right now in this price range.  The unbelievable paint, interior, and superior overall condition make this Corvette especially important and impossible to duplicate for the price.  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.  The value of these cars has gone up exponentially in recent years.  The "Chrome Bumper" years have not had the detrimental over inflation that the mid year Corvettes have suffered from.  They are all solid investments for a collector.  Cars like this are the Barrett Jackson stars of the future.  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.
