Cincinnati's premier Corvette specialist anda licensed and
registered auto dealer by the State of Ohio. With many years of

a very focused operation. We do it because we enjoy it. We are a

Seven Hills Motorcars is
exceptionally proud to offer this beautiful, completely numbers
matching, 1972 Corvette in immaculate condition. The car basically
needs nothing and everything on the car works as it should. It
looks greats, runs great, and is an awesome driver that is ready to
be used and enjoyed. This Corvette just two weeks ago completed a
six hour road trip over 300 miles. Throughout the trip the car was
an absolute pleasure to drive and performed flawlessly with no
issues at all. This Corvette is priced to sell, always turns heads, and
gets a TON of attention going down the road. The market on these
chrome bumper Corvettes is red hot right now. This particular
Stingray has been given a "frame on" restoration and looks
stunning. It was recently treated to a professional paintjob in the
correct color. The car is finished in the beautiful and highly
desirable color combination of Sunflower Yellow over Black Vinyl.
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
Not only does the car look magnificent, it is completely
sorted mechanically and runs/drives great. The engine was
rebuilt at 99k miles, the transmission was rebuilt at 108k
miles, the clutch was replaced at 108k miles, the exhaust
was replaced at 99k miles, the front and rear brakes were
redone at 105k miles, as well as other mechanical items such
as new suspension bushings, adjustable rear camber arms,
and carb rebuild. The car also comes with dozen of receipts
totaling over $10,100, pictured below, some dating back to
1980 for much of the work performed, including the
engine and transmission rebuild. Also included with the car
and pictured below is the original order copy from when the
car was purchased new. I would not hesitate to hop in this
car and take another road trip right now. This Corvette is owned free and clear
with no liens by Seven Hills Motorcars, the title is NOT branded as
salvage or rebuilt. Please peruse all of the photos,
numbers, video, and information below to get
a true sense of how nice and clean 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.
Please note when checking the numbers that not only do the correct
stampings and casting numbers appear on the parts, but all of the
dates are also chronologically correct. This means that all of
the parts were made and assembled in the correct order. For
example, all of the dates for the individual engine components and
the engine casting date should obviously precede the assembly date
of the engine because the parts had to be produced before they could
be assembled. All of the parts I checked follow this rule and
are dated correctly.
The first digit, "1," indicated the Chevrolet division of
GM. The "Z" is the series, Corvette. The "37" is the body
style, sport coupe. The fifth digit is the engine, K,
correct for a 200hp car. The sixth digit, "2," indicates
the model year, 1972. The "S" is the plant where the car
was produced, St. Louis. The last five digits are a
sequence number so this is the 15,094th Corvette made for
Body Build Date
"G" corresponds to
February, and the 29 is the twenty-ninth day of the
month meaning this Corvette body build date is Leap Day
February 29, 1972.
"V" means the engine was build in the Flint, MI plant.
The "02" is the second month of year and the "23" is the
twenty-third day of the month meaning the engine was assembled on
February 23, 1972. This is correct as it precedes the build
date of the car.
This means the motor was intended for a 350ci 200hp Corvette with a
manual transmission, which is correct for this car.
Engine VIN Stamping
The last 6 digits of the car's VIN,
515094, are stamped on
the engine pad meaning this engine is original to this car.
Engine Block Casting Number
The engine block has the correct 3970010 casting number.
Engine Block Casting Date
B 19 2
February, "19" is the nineteenth day of the month, and "2" is
the last digit of the calendar year so the engine block was cast on
February 19, 1972.

Transmission Date Code
P 2 B 18 A
The "P" indicates that this is a Muncie transmission. The
"2" indicates the year, 1972. The "B" is the second month of
the year and the "18" is the eighteenth day of the month.
The "A" indicates an M20 wide gear ratio. So the
transmission was assembled on February 18, 1972.
The bell housing has a 3899621 casting number.

month meaning the distributor was made on January 26, 1972.
This is correct as it predates the assembly date of the

information obtained from Alan A. Colvin's Corvette by the Numbers
and Mike Antonick's Corvette Black Book.
Sunflower Yellow exterior is in excellent driver condition. As one can see
in the photos the finish has dazzling gloss, deep shine, and
smooth finish. The chrome bumpers and other bight work on the
car show well overall. The wheels and center caps are in
excellent condition with a nice finish and no curb rash on the
beauty rings. Often Corvettes will have particularly chipped up
front ends, this car does not. There are no major blemishes that
have been intentionally excluded from the photos. There are a
couple small cracks in the paint around the headlight visible in
the photos and some very faint imperfections around the car too
small to show up in photos, but nothing that is really
noticeable from about five feet away. As one can see in the many
photos of the underside of the car, this Corvette is totally
solid. There is no rust around the "key hole" area of the frame
in front of the rear tires and no evidence of corrosion around
the windshield or "birdcage," the most common areas for rust on
C3 Corvettes. The tires have about 90% tread left.
Window Date Codes
Please note that the "Astro
Ventilation" door glass and even the removable rear
glass are date coded and original as each piece predates
the car's body build date of February 29, 1972 (G29).
Original glass is a good indication that this car has
had no major accident history
and never sustained significant damage.
The Stingray looks just as good in person as it
does in the photos.
The black interior of the Corvette
looks absolutely superb. The seats look virtually brand new
with no split seems, rips, or signs of wear. Please note
that these are not some cheap aftermarket replacement
covers. The correct vinyl seats, which this car has, are
actually much more expensive then the "leather like"
alternatives sold by many Corvette parts suppliers. So the
previous owner of this car spent the extra money to purchase
the correct, higher quality restoration parts. The carpet is
also in like new condition with no tears, holes, or stains.
This included the rear carpet which is often neglected. The
dash and console are in nice condition with no fading or sun
damage. The radio is correct, original, and actually gets great
reception. The door panels are in good condition with
no cracks on the arm pads, which is a very common problem on
this era Corvette. The T-top headliners are not warped or
sagging. The jack and jack handle are present and stowed
correctly behind the passenger seat, which is pictured below
showing the original decals on the compartment lid. This
car has not been smoked in and there is no aroma of
cigarettes 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 it's life. Even very detailed items that are
almost always broken or shabby are not on this car; details
such as the finger pulls for the rear storage compartment
and the fit of the center gauge cluster with the shifter
console and down to the parking brake console. Please also
note that both shoulder belts operate and retract correctly,
which can be viewed in the video below. This is another
detail many buyers do not think to inspect, but is a very
common problem on early C3's.
looks just as good in person as it does in the photos.
in terrific mechanical condition, everything on the car
works, and it does not need anything that we are aware of. The mechanicals and the way this car feels out on the
road are some of its strongest points. As stated above, this car
just completed a 6 hour road trip with absolutely no issues. The
car ran cool and smooth the entire time. As one would expect
with the rebuilt engine and carb the car starts right away every time, runs well, and idles well.
Please observe in the video how it high idles correctly and then
kicks down correctly after a short warm up. The car drives terrifically; it is tight on the road and at highway speeds. There are no
strange noises or vibrations. The transmission shifts great and
the shifter feels very precise with no play; it does not pop out
of gear. The clutch has been serviced and feels good. The brakes
have been serviced and are
responsive; they do not pull to one side or the other. This
Corvette has plenty of power and is very fast. Also, the engine
compartment is beautifully clean, detailed, and correct as one can see in
the photos. Please note that the car has the correct style hose
clamps, correct GM script on the heater hoses, and correct
colored stripping on the vacuum lines and hoses.
The horn works as
do all the exterior lights, all gauges (with the obvious
exception of the clock), and wipers. The entire
vacuum system for the headlights and wiper door works correctly
with no effort or binding
from both their respective switches on the dash and override
switches. The entire operation from both switches can be viewed
in the video below. The blower for the
heater and a/c works on all speeds. The dash lights work as one
can see in the video. This Stingray is very well sorted
mechanically and has been very well maintained over the
years as one can see with the extensive service records
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
This Corvette runs and drives as well as it
this 1972 Corvette is in spectacular driver
condition. Numbers matching is extremely important in Corvette
pricing and as one can see above this car is quite
correct. There are
photos below of the VIN and date stamps on both the engine block and
transmission main case. 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 are the most desirable. The value
of these cars has gone up exponentially in recent years. They
are all solid investments for a collector.
The originality, matching numbers,
extensive service history, and beautiful color combination make this car
especially important and difficult to duplicate. There
is no way someone could restore a 1972 Corvette to this
level of quality for anywhere near our asking price. 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. One could easily enjoy this vehicle for
several years and sell it for more than the purchase
price with minimal effort.
