A quick perusal of eBay turned up this gem of a Corvette. Bid now for your chance to own this original, unrestored 1972 Corvette with just 3,200 miles from new. That’s right, this car has traveled just under 70 miles annually over the last 48 years.
We first learned of this car a few years ago when it was the subject of an article in the National Corvette Restorers Society’s Restorer publication. Then last year it showed up at Bloomington Gold as part of the Gold Collection. It’s by far, one of the best unrestored 1972’s we’ve ever seen.
The car was acquired from the stepfather of the original owner with 3,255 miles on it. It’s had just 2 registered owners since new. The Stingray was stored essentially since new and only driven at night. The eBay listing notes just 3,275 miles currently on the odometer.
This C3 is powered by the base 200hp L48 engine backed by a 4-speed transmission. The exterior still wears its original Steel Cities Gray paint and the black deluxe interior also remains as new. Other options include power steering, power brakes, tile/telescopic steering wheel, AM/FM radio, tinted glass, and the matching hardtop. The seller wraps up his listing by simply stating “…the only things that are not original is the oil and air filters.” It’s even sitting on the original Goodyear Speedway black wall tires.
Like many low-mile Corvettes this one made the rounds at all the big Corvette events and claimed top honors. It currently lays claim to NCRS Top Flight and 4-Star Bowtie awards. At Bloomington Gold, it took home Survivor, Gold, and Benchmark awards in addition to being featured in the 2019 Gold Collection. Documentation includes the Protect-o-Plate, tank sticker, and pre-delivery inspection among other items.
Corvettes in this condition with this low of mileage don’t come around very often and the final sale price (if it meets reserve) will reflect that. As of this writing, the bid is at $30,100. If you’re interested in this gem, you’ve got until this Sunday at 6:45pm Eastern to get your finances in order.
