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 gorgeous 1972 Corvette in immaculate condition.  This car looks amazing, runs great, and is an awesome driver.  According to the previous owner the car received a mild frame on restoration in the early 2000's.  Included with this car is a professional appraisal done for the previous owner in 2004 where the car appraised for $26,862.  A copy of that appraisal sent to me from the previous owner can been seen here .  While this Corvette is not completely numbers matching it does have a Chevrolet V8 with a correct casting number.  The casting number on the block is 3970010, which was a very widely used block for Chevrolet.  It was also used in Corvettes from 1969 to 1979.  The previous owner stated that the engine was rebuilt when the car was restored and has seen limited use since.  Please peruse all of the photos below to get a true sense of how exceptionally clean and nice this Corvette really is.

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.  This model year is widely considered to be the best out of the entire C3 generation.  Years after were more at the mercy of insurance companies, fuel prices, and emission concerns, 1972 is considered the last true "vintage" Corvette.  It was also the last year to feature a pop out rear window on the coupe, 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.  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 white exterior is in magnificent driver condition.  As one can see in the photos the paint has dazzling gloss, deep shine, and smooth finish.  The chrome bumpers and other brightwork on the car look splendid with no rust or cloudiness.  Often many Corvettes will have particularly chipped up front ends, this car does not There are no major imperfections that have been intentionally excluded from the photos.  There may be some small imperfections that were too faint to show up in photos, but nothing that is really noticeable from about five or ten feet away.  The wheels are in great condition with a nice bright finish and no curb rash on the beauty rings.  The tires appear to have about 70% tread left.  As one can see in the photos below of the car on a lift, the underside is also very clean and tidy with no rust.

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

 

Interior

 

The black interior of the Corvette looks splendid.  The seats look literally brand new with no rips, splits seams, or signs of any 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 dash is in great condition with no cracks, fading, or sun damage.  The original jack and jack handle are still with the car in the rear storage compartment.  The aftermarket stereo radio works well.  Most importantly, the radio is a Corvette specific unit designed to fit into the stock location so the original dash has not been cut or modified.  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

 

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

 

Mechanical

This car is in seems to be in good 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.  It starts right away every time, idles well, and runs well.  The car shifts well throughout the power band.  The engine has a mild cam that give the car a perfectly aggressive note and healthy exhaust tone.  Also, the engine compartment is beautifully clean and detailed as one can see in the photos.  The horn works as do all the interior and exterior lights, vacuum for the headlights, headlight override vacuum switch, all gauges (with the obvious exception of the clock), wipers, blower for the heater, vent controls, and the parking brake, which is a very common problem on this era Corvette.  Even very detailed items, such as the "door ajar" light are functional.  There is a slightly audible tick only at idle.  This Corvette has plenty of power and is very fast.  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.


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 suburb 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.
