This 1972 Chevrolet Corvette Convertible has the right kind of style you want in a true cruiser. Drop-top fun, a supple leather interior, and proper numbers matching V8 power mean this is the icon that you'll love from day one. And there's a lot of potential for future fun.
The trim tag tells us this is a factory Mille Miglia Red car. It's a bold color that has us thinking about how fun it would be to send over a classic Corvette to do a back roads tour of Italy. And this has the .....
kind of driver-quality finish that won't make you afraid to explore new highways in America, too. So while some people may choose to upgrade or update the paint and body, we kind of already like a car that never makes us nervous about enjoying it. After all, America's sports car was made for driving fun. And no matter your plans, you can recognize the appeal fundamentals like the glass, rubber seals, and distinct chrome bumpers all looking good. This one even has the optional luggage rack on the back to make it easier to tour the USA and Europe.
Beneath the black folding roof is a full black interior. So you have an appealing color combo with the top up or down. The carpeting, door panels, and dash have a clean and attractive appearance. Plus, we especially like the look and feel of the recently reupholstered leather bucket seats. You may choose to update details like the convertible top or add a modern stereo, but nothing gets in the way of the overall driver's car appeal. That's why you have a grippy three-spoke sports steering wheel, a large speedo and tach directly in front of it, and auxiliary readouts at eye level.
Under the hood is the numbers-matching 350 cubic inch V8. The bold block, bright finned valve covers, and polished air grabber give it a nice impression. The V8 fires up eagerly as it inhales deeply with a four-barrel carburetor, and makes a nice idling rumble exhaling from the dual exhaust. We love a good Corvette small block because they are easy to work on, the components are plentiful, and there's just so much potential for added power. So this one is a nice candidate where you can do some weekend tune-up and tinkering to add strength and muscle to this original small block. And the TH400 three-speed transmission is the right mix of stout construction and easy automatic shifting. So this is a terrific drop-top cruiser. Plus, you have power steering, four-wheel power disc brakes, and a fully independent suspension for true driving fun.
The sale comes complete with the Protect-o-Plate warranty card and owner's manual. If you want history fun, and plenty of potential for personalization, this one makes for a terrific classic. Call today!!!
