Eye Catching, Numbers Matching, Red 1972 Chevrolet Corvette
The Chevrolet Corvette (C3) was a sports car that was produced by Chevrolet for the 1968 through 1982 model years. Engines and chassis components were mostly carried over from the previous generation, but the body and interior were new.
Why Its Special
The 1972 Corvette LS 5 we have here at Skyway, was the last year for chrome bumpers at both front and rear, the vacuum actuated pop-up windshield wiper door, as well as the removable rear window common to all 1968-72 coupes.
The LS-5 454 engine in ours was rated at 270 horsepower. The correct automatic transmission handles the muscle perfectly. You will also see that it has air conditioning, power steering, power brakes, a detailed engine compartment that looks like it just came out of the factory with period correct hose and tower clamps, chrome valve covers, air cleaner, and a chrome alternator.
The interior sports a correct color of tan leather pair of bucket seats with matching door panels, tan carpet, factory assortment of performance gauges, stereo radio, console, and seat belts.
The 1972 Corvette would be the last model year to feature both front and rear chrome bumpers, a bright egg-crate grill, side-fender grills, and a removable rear-window, this had been a standard feature from 1968-1972. The red paint is nice as is all the fiberglass panels.
The race-car driver Tony DeLorenzo test-drove the 1972 Corvette back then for a magazine article and stated “you can't get a better overall performance car. I'd be hard-pressed to find a better car for the money than the 'Vette. It's just an incredible automobile.” Come and see the 1972 Corvette LS 5 we have at Skyway Classic and you will agree.
