Up for sale is my 1972 Chevy Corvette coupe in original Ontario Orange.

I acquired this daily driver about 2 1/2 years ago, and began to restore it. I have since bought a 71 that is a 4-speed which is what I really wanted and currently finishing the restoration on this one.

The 72 corvette drives well, and responds quickly to the gas peddle. Previous owner had some work done on it as well including replacing the gas tank.

This car needs just a few things to make it truly awesome or drive as is, it gets a ton of compliments and looks wherever I go (even here in sunny Los Angeles where classic and exotic cars are in abundance).

Whoever gets this classic is buying an investment as well, as these chrome bumper Corvettes are becoming more and more rare. This is a removable T-Top and rear window Corvette Coupe.

Car is currently registered in my name till 2020, clear title in hand, SMOG EXEMPT.

Here is a list of the things I have done to the car in the last 2 years:

1. New exhaust from neck to back with Flow Masters Mufflers
