This 1972 Chevrolet Corvette is finished in a custom two-tone orange with black striping and is powered by a 350ci V8 paired with a 3-speed automatic transmission. The previous owner had the car for 30 years prior to the seller acquiring it two years ago, and has under 54k original miles. Equipment includes T-tops with removable panels, side exhaust, air conditioning, and power windows. Located in Hot Springs Village, Arkansas, this 1972 Corvette is offered for sale on a clean Arkansas title in the seller's name.
The car has recently been refinished in a custom two-tone orange scheme, with a lighter orange stripe running down the center of the car and over the rear, fading into a black stripe dividing the two colors. Features include pop-up headlights, wraparound chrome bumpers front and rear, side-pipe exhaust, and fender vents.
Later model 15” Corvette wheels are mounted to Dunlop Radial G/T Qualifier raised-white-letter tires on all four corners. Braking is provided by power disc brakes all around, and the suspension features new shocks and bushings.
The interior is fitted with tan bucket seats, along with tan door panels and new tan carpeting. The dash and center console are upholstered to match, and woodgrain trim is featured on the top of the console and door panels. The car is equipped with air conditioning, which functions with no issue, as do the original radio and clock. Switches for the power windows are located to the outside of the parking brake handle, while controls for the heating and air conditioning are located above the shifter for the automatic transmission.
Instrumentation includes a 160-mph speedometer and a 7k-rpm tachometer, along with additional gauges for fuel temperature, coolant temperature, oil pressure, and voltage. The five-digit odometer reads 54k miles, which is stated as original by the seller, who has added approximately 400 miles in two years of ownership.
The 350ci V8 is original to the car and factory rated at 200 horsepower when new. The car retains the factory finned aluminum valve covers and cast iron exhaust manifolds, while the air cleaner and alternator have been replaced with chrome pieces. Power is transferred to the rear wheels through the original 3-speed automatic transmission.
