Up for sale at VetteFinders.com is a 1972 LT-1 Corvette Coupe that is currently owned by our own Steve Burns who heads up CorvetteBlogger’s Detroit Bureau. Steve owns two Corvettes, the Blue 1972 LT-1 and a Cyber Gray 2009 Corvette recently featured in [Operation Air Flow], but recent family additions mean that two Corvettes is one too many, so the LT-1 has got to go.
Steve’s 1972 LT-1 has been featured several times on CorvetteBlogger.com and he would drive the car to the various shows around the Detroit area including the Woodward Dream Cruise, Canterbury Village and EyesOn Design. Check out this post from 2012 where he documented the flight judging of the Corvette at a Michigan NCRS meet.
