Looking for a classic fully restored chrome bumper Vette to cruise in or maybe you need another Corvette to complete your collection? MotoeXotica Classic Cars is very proud to offer this numbers matching 1972 Chevrolet Corvette 454 Roadster that will be featured in a future episode of Gas Monkey’s Fast N Loud this current season!

Like all 1954-1981 models, this Corvette was built at GM’s St. Louis, Missouri assembly plant, on or about November 19, 1971. It came with the following options – custom interior trim, power windows, auxiliary hardtop, air-conditioning, power brakes, 454 V-8, automatic transmission, tilt/telescopic steering column, power steering and deluxe wheel covers.

The chassis number denotes the massive numbers matching LS5 454 CID V8 (#T1II2CSS #12S507664) engine optioned from new. Purchased by the second previous owner about a decade ago, he embarked on a comprehensive restoration in 2008, which can be seen step-by-step in the accompanying pictures.

Finished in striking and period-correct Elkhart Green Metallic over a Saddle leather interior, the car’s paint and trim are in overall excellent condition. The owner picked Elkhart Green as he had a car in that exact color when these cars were new. The windows are clear and intact and the car’s lights are all intact and haze-free.

This ‘Vette rolls on BFGoodrich Radial T/As blackwall tires, size 245/60R15 at all four corners. Each tire surrounds a steel wheel topped with a deluxe factory wheel cover. The tires and wheels are in great shape.

The car’s bodywork is straight and solid, the bumpers fit well to the body, the engine bay is extremely tidy, the battery looks fresh and there’s a luggage rack on the back to supplement the interior cargo space behind the bucket seats.

Under the front-hinged hood is the 270HP LS5 454 CID big-block V-8 engine with a four-barrel carburetor. Backing this engine is a Turbo Hydramatic 400 three-speed automatic transmission and 3.36:1 rear end with standard Positraction. Driver convenience features include air-conditioning, power steering, power four-wheel disc brakes, power windows and tilt/telescopic steering column.

Inside, the Saddle leather bucket seats are in very good overall shape, including the pull-down center armrest. The matching carpet is in good condition. The hardtop’s headliner still looks fantastic and the instrument panel and center stack, complete with full instrumentation, is in very good order. The original three-spoke steering wheel is present and matches condition with the rest of the interior. The inner door panels, mirror glass, center console and shifter all look great. Flo-Thru ventilation came standard in all ’72 Corvettes, as did an anti-theft system. Completing the interior is a Retro Sound AM/FM stereo with cassette deck.

Nineteen seventy-two was the last year for chrome bumpers at front and rear, the vacuum actuated pop-up windshield wiper door, as well as the removable rear window common to all 1968-72 coupes. The key activated anti-theft alarm system became standard. The increasingly popular choice of an automatic transmission was installed in most Corvettes for the first time, with nearly 54 percent so equipped. That year, SAE net measurement for horsepower was utilized (instead of the previous SAE gross standard).

Noteworthy is that in ’72, the LS5 was not available to California buyers. This was the beginning of a trend where Chevrolet restricted certain powertrain choices to California buyers due to that state’s practice of applying more stringent emission (smog) standards than mandated by federal regulations. Convertibles were a vanishing breed by ‘72 and the Stingray was no exception. It sold only 6,508 copies, amounting to nine percent of the market, placing it number three; it was beaten by the number one-selling Cutlass Supreme, with 11,571, but beat the Impala’s 6,456 and the Mustang’s 6,401.

Documentation includes original owner’s manual, a binder of the 1972 Corvette Assembly Manual and photos of the 2008 restoration from start to finish.

Competition to this Corvette in 1972 included Excalibur’s Series II Roadster, Jaguar’s Series III E-type V-12 convertible and Porsche’s 911S Targa.

This car is currently located at our facility in St. Louis, Missouri. Current mileage on the odometer shows 62,311 miles. It is sold as is, where is, on a clean and clear, mileage exempt title. GET OUT AND DRIVE!!!
