  • Year: 1972
  • Model: Corvette Coupe
  • Trim: Coupe
  • Description: 1972 Chevrolet Corvette Coupe First and second-generation Corvettes were one of the first true collectible cars of the modern era, and collecting Corvettes remains a global phenomenon. More than just another two-seat sports car, the Vette is an American icon. There’s a good reason it’s often referred to as America’s sports car, and every enthusiast should have at least a basic knowledge of its eight generations. For consignment, a barn find condition ‘72 Vette. Taking form as a numbers matching, matching, multiple respray, and in need of some fiberglass repair driving project car. One should note that further investigation must be done as both the driver’s and passenger’s A pillars have significant invasive rust and the birdcage substructure may be compromised. Exterior Crossed flags lead the way in front on top of the maroon painted fiberglass hood and body. Buddying up to its shark-like front end with a chrome bumper at the V point, egg crate grille below, and hidden headlights which melt into a small bump up hood, this car’s sculptural qualities are off the charts. Air intake egg crate on the front quarters with Stingray scripted chrome backing above and a curvaceous stainless rocker trim panel this car is a work of art. The flat rear window is installed and is supported on either side by flying buttresses. Bringing up the rear are the iconic ‘Vette round taillights into the flat vertical panel and dual rectangular exhaust tips below the squared off eyebrow chrome bumpers. Cracking, crazing, sanding marks, and sand thru to prior colors are noted on most panels with the worst cracking being around the driver’s taillight. Shades of primer and blue show through on both the hood and removable roof panels hinting that this car may have replacement panels installed as this car was originally Steel Cities Gray Firemist. Deep dish rally wheels and thin whitewall tires adorn all 4 corners and look quite nice. Interior Black vinyl in nicely aged condition covers thin sculpted high back buckets. The center console has power window switches, the parking brake, shifter and moving forward is a black plastic panel which houses the gearshift and temp control wheels. Above is a cluster of round gauges that will make you feel like a 747 pilot, and an aftermarket AM/FM/Cassette player. A later model steering wheel and column fronts a deep dual gauge instrument cluster. Door panels show well in a mix of black vinyl and plastic with minor scuffing and wear. Slightly faded and worn black carpet covers the floors and a carpeted area behind the seats offers up ample storage for the tops and your stuff. Drivetrain A 350ci numbers matching V8 is nestled into a clean engine bay. On top, a single 4-barrel carburetor and a correct TH400 3-speed automatic is attached to the rear of the mill. 3.08 gears are reserved for this car’s rear axle. All numbers matching and presenting with some age and patinaed appearance. Undercarriage Straight out of 1972, this car is structurally sound, with copious areas of surface rust, clean floor pans, and just plain patina underneath. Dual exhaust is on and ends in stock style mufflers. Racy C3 suspension on front and rear, and 4-wheel disc brakes are all around. We do note that even with most steel components having ample surface rust there is no invasive rust on the frame. Drive-Ability A turn of the key and we are in auditory heaven and I can feel it in the seat of my pants in the form of a vibration. Smooth shifting, rail like handling, and lots-o-power from the 350 cubes throwing it back to the TH400. Ergonomics are awesome and I felt totally at home in this ‘Vette. All in all, a good performer, quick starter, and good runner. Worn paint and numerous body issues have this last year’s full chrome bumper Vette falling into the barn find category. Again, we must note that both A-pillars have severe invasive rust and careful inspection must be done to assure structural integrity.
