1972 Chevrolet Corvette $40,995

Fort Worth, TX Ontario Orange · 454 V8 · 23,649 miles
This 1972 Chevrolet Corvette is an interesting find for the enthusiast looking for a reliable C3 Corvette. It catches your eye with a beautiful Ontario Orange paint job, but whats really cool is the 454 cubic inch V8 under the hood thats been converted to fuel injection!

The smooth fiberglass panels on this C3 are covered in the correct code 987 Ontario Orange. Not only is this a cool color for a car of this era, its a cool color for any car of ANY era, and it certainly stands out! The paint is new so you can rest easy knowing that the orange finish will shine like new for many more years. The chrome luggage rack out back tops a new split chrome bumper underneath the vivid taillights. Up front, the bulging front fenders bring your eye another new chrome bumper that lies beneath the nostalgic hideaway headlights. Also new to the car is the black vinyl top that features a plastic window. Stepping back to take it all in, the handsome hood scoops, and Goodyear Eagle wrapped rallye wheels, bring it together for a muscular look.

Inside is a new and correct Saddle Vinyl interior that works really well with the exterior. The carpets are new and everything appears showroom fresh. Those pleated vinyl seats feature custom LS-5 stitching in the headrests, nodding at what lies beneath the hood. The crack free dash holds clear gauges, including the center gauge pod that hosts a clock, fuel, water temperature, oil pressure and amperage gauges. The clean three spoke steering wheel tops the cool telescopic and tilt steering column. Other amenities include and AM/FM radio, air conditioning, heat/defrost and yes, power windows.

Tilt the hood forward and youre greeted with the pleasant view of a 454 cubic inch V8 that has been bored .30 over and balanced. Producing 425 horsepower, this one has been converted to a reliable Holley fuel injection setup. It starts up without drama with an electronic ignition, and can idle reliably in traffic with a nice aluminum radiator. Exhaling those fuel injected gasses is a new chambered exhaust system. That big block sends power to an automatic TH400 transmission and the undercarriage appears solid with power 4 wheel disc brakes taming that beast of a motors power. Keeping the 255/60/15 Goodyear rubber in touch with the road is a dual A-arm front suspension with an inverted leaf spring out back, complemented with power steering.

With an eye-popping paint job that remains correct to the car and a reliable, fuel injected V8 under the hood, this Corvette is ready for duty! Take it to the show or take it to work, this car will bring complements wherever it goes. Call today!
