Seven Hills Motorcars is
Cincinnati's premier Corvette specialist anda
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 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
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
. 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.

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

The seats look literally brand new with no

in the typical areas such as where the driver gets in and out.

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

to the meticulous care this car has received.

This car is in seems to be in

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

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 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.
