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.

One of the highlights of the annual Corvettes at Carlisle show is the burnout contest held on Friday afternoon.

If you scroll through Corvette production numbers between 1970 and 1976 you’ll notice that there’s no mention of the color black in there anywhere. Now, we all know that GM bigwigs could pull some strings and a get a Corvette in essentially any color they wanted. That’s the case here in which GM’s President, Pete Estes, ordered up a loaded black 1972 roadster. We caught up with this rarity at an NCRS event last weekend.
Most Corvette enthusiasts are familiar with the legendary L88 package which was essentially a collection of limited edition racing parts installed on the L71 427/435 hp engine. I would also say that most are not that familiar with the 1970-72 ZR1 package which essentially did the same with the LT-1 350 ci small block. Much rarer than the 216 L88s made the three years prior, only 53 ZR1 Corvettes were produced during the three year span making them the rarest of all Chevy small blocks. So its a pretty big deal when one shows up for sale like this 1972 Corvette ZR1 which was recently listed for sale on eBay.
