1972 Chevrolet Corvette 2 Owner Barn Find Car

This is a pretty interesting car. I purchased it from the 2nd owners son. His dad bought it in 1973. He bought in Indiana and it was driven to Washington state in '73 and was driven back to Michigan in 2006. The son raced it and blew the engine up, pulled it and put the car in the garage. The original engine is long gone now, I did find a correct 3970010 engine that I installed. It is a 355 4 bolt, nice cam, Weiand intake, Pete Jackson gear drive, Headman headers, 780 Holley Carb & all new exhaust with Flowmaster mufflers. It has an automatic with a aftermarket converter. I used all the gauges, tach and racing junk the kid left on it.

It appears to have mostly original paint (look at the bonding strips on the rear fenders) The chrome is nice, it has the wiper door and most all the hard to find stuff. Still has factory grease pencil A/C & M40 under the rear carpet. He cut up the original hood and put the scoop on it NOT ME. It is Code 946 Elkart Green with 417 Saddle Vinyl interior (the son dyed it black) The seats are from a '74 that I had. It does need some attention in areas, but for a 72, it is a real nice car. The brakes are good, the frame is excellent and the engine sounds nice. I have NOT driven the car except to move it in & out of the garage, so I don't know how well it goes down the road.

Some of the things I noticed: Oil pressure gauge is gone, Spare tire bucket missing, seat belts are gone but the shoulder belts are there, radio & center console missing. Headlights & wiper door do not go up, luggage rack is not a GM piece, the U-Joints in the half shafts are pretty much gone, there is a hole in the rear compartment where the drive shaft U-joint must have let go at sometime, Heater & A/C control don't work. I have not looked at any of this, but I may if I get some time. This is little stuff, but I wanted to be up front about it.

This car is a nice one to save and needs to be taken to the next level weather it be a total restore or a street car. I do this as a hobby and normally cut them up, but this one was way too nice for that, so I brought it to where it is now. It is time for it to go.
