1972 Chevrolet Corvette Coupe #4620 The year was 1971 and the EPA was running amuck slapping emission control devices on cars and forcing automakers to drop horsepower ratings to increase mpg. This strangulation saw the base-level Corvette drop to 200 horsepower and its highest output dropped from 460 ponies to 270, and the squeeze was on. The 1972 switch to SAE net horsepower, (at the rear wheels), officially locked the Corvette into one of its darkest eras. Much like the extinction of the dinosaurs, the muscle car was slowly and methodically eliminated. We can only assume that the Corvette survived this mass extinction based on its name alone. For consignment, a good condition \'72 Vette taking form with a date-correct replacement 350ci V8, matching original paint respray, and shiny clean chrome, and a reliable driver. I smell another driver quality collectible coming over the hill straight into your garage and to this writer, this is a definite highlight year as to looks despite the EPA\'s efforts to thwart power. Exterior Elkhart Green adorns the exterior and presents in good condition with a few inclusions, scuffs and spot ins and cracks but nothing detrimental. Badging is correct, and chrome appears in good condition as well. In lieu of side pipes, we note stainless rocker covers which add some brightness to the bottom of this car. The egg crate covering on the air intake on the front fender has a Stingray badge above it and is shining brightly. Hidden headlights and more air intake venting on the sides of the curvaceous front fenders. A vertical rear glass is supported by long flowing flying buttress roof pillars that melt into the flat deck lid on the back. Wonderful shiny rear bumpers, split in their mind section frame rectangular exhaust tips peeking out from below. Removable roof panels allow for extra air and sky viewing when removed and seals for these as well as the chromed T top are all excellent condition. Standard Chevrolet rally wheels, and deep-dish rings are wrapped by almost new thin whitewall rubber on all 4 corners. We do note some invasive rust on the A-pillars of the birdcage that may lead to other underlying structural issues, so further inspection is in order. Interior A swing of the door, and we are greeted with loads of saddle stitched vinyl which mixes with a peppering of chrome trimmings all in well preserved condition. Stylized stitched vinyl seating shows no folding, tears, or age wear and covers high back thin buckets. A center console races towards the dash and has a textured black panel surrounding the shift lever and climate control wheels. As we climb up towards the center of the dash there is a modern radio which is an AM/FM and 5 round gauges inset to monitor all the vitals. In front of the pilot, nice deep set round gauges in front of an original steering wheel showing slight wear which keep you within the law if you choose to look down. Note we are still in the manual window crank era, and non-power door lock era, so these controls are manual. This car does have A/C, and for the passenger no glove box, just leather pouches to store maps etc. Clean pristine saddle carpet covers the floors. In back, a fully carpeted rear storage area can hold the roof panels or your gear for those road trips. Drivetrain Sitting within the engine bay is a nicely preserved and well cared for date correct 350ci V8 mill that our consignor states was installed approximately 700 miles ago. Topping this orange/red painted mill is a chrome and black dual snorkel air cleaner assembly and underneath is a 4bbl carburetor. The transmission, a numbers matching unit, is a TH400 3-speed automatic which throws power rearward to a 3.08 geared Positraction ratio rear axle. Undercarriage Sturdy, structurally sound, slight surface rust, tight, are definite words we can use to describe this nicely cared for environment. Looking around we can note independent coil sprung front su
