1972 Corvette Stingray
« on: March 02, 2013, 06:09:50 PM »
Soo...as some of you know...I used to own a fully restored 1969 Chevrolet C/10 but sold it to pursue my dream car, a C3 (1968-1982) corvette...well today I found exactly what I was looking for!

 

 

It is a 1972 matching #'s corvette, with the rare 350 LT1, Muncie 4-speed, and 4.11 gears. It has a brown exterior & tan interior with the chrome bumpers, a big block hood, rally rims, & a rebuilt drivetrain.

There were only 1,741 of these made outta the total 27,004 corvettes back in 1972. And the VIN # indicates it truely is a 350 LT1 with the 5th letter indicated by a "L". I purchased it from a collector in Alberta, who was the 3rd owner. He purchased it from another collector in the USA a few years ago.

It has some minor imperfections but is still a nice car! Not to mention everything I was looking for at a pretty decent price. I took these pictures of the vehicle after looking at it today & working out a deal on it. I take posession of it later next week.

More pictures to come soon!

Better look after it well. They don't seem to lose value.

Oh trust me, ill take good care of it, its my dream car! Lol :)

The 1968-72 "chrome bumper" corvettes are worth more & will never depreciate in value. The fact it is a #'s matching LT1 should raise the value of it even more. But ill find out its true value when I get an appraisal done soon for insurance purposes.
