Please call Matt directly at 513-708-1468 with any questions about this car.

Seven Hills Motorcars is very proud to offer this beautiful numbers matching 1972 Corvette Stingray Coupe in fantastic condition. The Classic White (972) over Red Vinyl (402) color combination is highly desirable, truly striking, and looks great on this Stingray body style. It is also the correct and original color scheme as verified by the codes on the trim tag, which is pictured in this ad. Besides the matching paint and trim codes, this Corvette is "Numbers Matching" with the last six digits of the VIN stamped on the engine pad, which is pictured in this ad, and the engine is original to the car. The transmission is also original with the last six digits of the VIN stamped on the main case and pictured.

This Stingray is loaded with desirable original options including air conditioning that blows cold, power steering, automatic transmission, and tilt wheel. We have this car priced to sell and are offering an excellent opportunity to own a very desirable Corvette at an unbeatable value. One could easily buy this car now and sell it for more than the purchase price in years to come as the market on C3 "chrome bumper" Corvettes from 1968 to 1972 is absolutely red hot right now and on the rise. Please peruse all of the photos, video, list of numbers, and other information below to get a true sense of how 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 car 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 Classic White exterior is in excellent driver condition. As one can see in the photos, the finish has dazzling gloss, smooth finish, and deep shine. The rally wheels and center caps are in great condition with a nice finish. Please note that this Stingray has the correct and original 4-clip style beauty rings, not the cheaper foreign made replacements. The Cooper Cobra raised white letter tires are literally brand new with less than 20 miles on them and are correctly sized 225/70R15. There are a few tiny blemishes around car that were too small to show up in pictures, but nothing else that is really noticeable from about five feet away. As one can see in the many photos of the underside and in the video this car is very clean underneath. We have included specific photos of the areas most prone to rust to show how nice this car looks.

Window Date Codes

Please note that ALL of the glass on this Corvette, the windshield, both "Astro Ventilation" door windows, and even the pop-out rear window, are all date coded and original as each piece predates the car's body build date of September 9, 1971 (B09). Original glass is a good indication that this car has had no major accident history and never sustained significant damage.

Interior

The Red Vinyl interior of the Corvette is in excellent condition. The seats look great overall with no excessive wear or split seams. The seats are not overly worn in the typical area where the driver gets in and out. The gauge faces are clean and crisp and the lenses are clear. The carpet is in also in okay condition with some wear in the very rear storage compartment. The car as an aftermarket radio that was specifically made for this model Corvette, most importantly the dash has never been cut or modified for the installation. The dash and console are in good shape with no cracks, fading, or sun damage. This Corvette has never been smoked in; there are no burns marks and no aroma of cigarettes.

Corvette interiors from this era are not known to wear well and the excellent condition of this interior is a huge testament to the meticulous care and attention this car has received throughout its life.

Mechanical

This Corvette seems to be in very good mechanical condition. The original numbers matching engine runs well and idles smooth. The car drives great and feels nice on the road and at highway speeds. In the video below one can observe the car accelerating on the highway up to about 70mph, shifting through all the gears, braking to stoplight, and going through some curves. Please note that there are no vibrations and the car performs quite well overall. The brakes are responsive and do not pull to one side or the other. The transmission shifts well throughout the power band. Also, the engine compartment is beautifully clean and detailed as one can see in the photos.

The radio works as do all the exterior lights, dash lights, horn, wipers, and indicators. The blower for the heater and a/c works on all speeds. The a/c itself works and blows cold, one can observe the compressor clicking on and engaging properly in the video. The entire vacuum system for the headlights and wiper door works correctly. Please note that the vacuum system work properly from both the respective switches on the dash and the override switches. The entire operation from both switches can be viewed in the video. All of the gauges work with the obvious exception of the clock. As with many older cars this Stingray is cold blooded, but always starts with a few pumps of the gas pedal and runs better when warm. It could probably benefit from a tune up to smooth it out when cold. 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 1972 Corvette looks fantastic and is in excellent driver condition. The beautiful original color combination, excellent condition, and the great extent to which the numbers match make this Stingray especially important and very hard to duplicate. Numbers matching is extremely important in Corvette pricing and as one can see, this car is quite correct. There are photos of the VIN stamp on the engine block, suffix code, engine assembly date, transmission date, and transmission VIN stamp. This car does not have a door key, but one can be provided for and additional $250. 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. The value of these cars has gone up exponentially in recent years. They are all solid investments for a collector. 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 do not hesitate to email or call with any questions.
