Chevrolet was coming out of short production year for 1971 and found eager customers ready to make way for showrooms in 1972. It would mark the final year of the desired chrome bumpers front and rear, concealed wipers under a vacuum operated door, and the exit of traditional SAE Gross horsepower, but now SAE Net ratings determined after things like the air cleaner, transmission, and rear axle loads are factored in. Horsepower was identical to 1971, although printed output was significantly lower.
This third generation 1972 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray Coupe is finished in factory code Sunflower Yellow over factory Black Vinyl interior and is an exceptional representation of what is quickly becoming one of the most rapidly appreciating segments in the Corvette collector car market. Featuring desirable options that include number matching 454ci-4bbl V8 engine, automatic transmission, power steering, power brakes, factory air conditioning, tilt-telescopic steering wheel, Soft-Ray Astro-ventilation windows glass, original full wheel covers, white letter tires, Corvette rubber floor mats, 3.08 posi-traction rear axle ratio, Delco AM/FM radio, and chrome valve covers & air cleaner lid.
