Like all 19541981 models, this Corvette was built at GMs St. Louis, Missouri assembly plant, on or about November 19, 1971. It came with the following options custom interior trim, power windows, auxiliary hardtop, airconditioning, power brakes, 454 V8, automatic transmission, tilt/telescopic steering column, power steering and deluxe wheel covers.
The chassis number denotes the massive numbers matching LS5 454 CID V8(#T1II2CSS #12S507664)engine optioned from new. Purchased by the second previous owner about a decade ago, he embarked on a comprehensive restoration in 2008, which can be seen stepbystep in the accompanying pictures.
Finished in striking and periodcorrect Elkhart Green Metallic over a Saddle leather interior, the cars paint and trim are in overall excellent condition. The owner picked Elkhart Green as he had a car in that exact color when these cars were new. The windows are clear and intact and the cars lights are all intact and hazefree.
This Vette rolls on BFGoodrich Radial T/As blackwall tires, size 245/60R15 at all four corners. Each tire surrounds a steel wheel topped with a deluxe factory wheel cover. The tires and wheels are in great shape.
The cars bodywork is straight and solid, the bumpers fit well to the body, the engine bay is extremely tidy, the battery looks fresh and theres a luggage rack on the back to supplement the interior cargo space behind the bucket seats.
Under the fronthinged hood is the 270HP LS5 454 CID bigblock V8 engine with a fourbarrel carburetor. Backing this engine is a Turbo Hydramatic 400 threespeed automatic transmission and 3.36:1 rear end with standard Positraction. Driver convenience features include airconditioning, power steering, power fourwheel disc brakes, power windows and tilt/telescopic steering column.
Inside, the Saddle leather bucket seats are in very good overall shape, including the pulldown center armrest. The matching carpet is in good condition. The hardtops headliner still looks fantastic and the instrument panel and center stack, complete with full instrumentation, is in very good order. The original threespoke steering wheel is present and matches condition with the rest of the interior. The inner door panels, mirror glass, center console and shifter all look great. FloThru ventilation came standard in all 72 Corvettes, as did an antitheft system. Completing the interior is a Retro Sound AM/FM stereo with cassette deck.
Nineteen seventytwo was the last year for chrome bumpers at front and rear, the vacuum actuated popup windshield wiper door, as well as the removable rear window common to all 196872 coupes.The key activated antitheft alarm system became standard. The increasingly popular choice of an automatic transmission was installed in most Corvettes for the first time, with nearly 54 percent so equipped.That year,SAEnet measurement forhorsepowerwas utilized (instead of the previous SAE gross standard).
Noteworthy is that in 72, the LS5 was not available to California buyers.This was the beginning of a trend where Chevrolet restricted certain powertrain choices to California buyers due to that state's practice of applying more stringent emission (smog) standards than mandated by federal regulations. Convertibles were a vanishing breed by 72and the Stingray was no exception. It sold only 6,508 copies, amounting to nine percent of the market, placing it number three;it was beaten by the number onesellingCutlass Supreme, with 11,571, but beat theImpala's 6,456 and theMustang's 6,401.
Documentation includes original owners manual, a binder of the 1972 Corvette Assembly Manual and photos of the 2008 restoration from start to finish.
Competition to this Corvette in 1972 included Excaliburs Series II Roadster, Jaguars Series III Etype V12 convertible and Porsches 911S Targa.
