Check out this 1972 chrome bumper Corvette Stingray T-top coupe. It’s a survivor that’s just been brought back to life after being off the road for 10 years.
Now on sale on eBay at the “Buy It Now” price of $24,500, the car has undergone extensive mechanical updates to make it roadworthy again, including all new brakes, calipers/pads/hoses, points, a three-row aluminum radiator and hoses, power steering cylinder and hoses, master cylinder, tires, rally wheel trim rings, center caps, rubber floor mats, and battery.
Now the seller says this California car – back in “good mechanical condition” now – drives, steers, shifts and stops great and is a lot of fun to drive with its matching-numbers 350 engine and four-speed manual transmission.
There is still work to be done, however. For starters, the radio and tachometer are not functioning and the original windshield wiper door grill is missing though a green grill from a parts car is included. The original interior and carpet is said to be in very good condition with separation on a few seams of the bucket seats.
Likewise, while the Ontario Orange paint was resprayed in the ’70s and was recently professionally detailed, the seller admits it still has blemishes, scratches, paint loss, and fading. “It shines up,” he says, “but shows its age.”
Fortunately he describes the body and frame as “very straight, rust-free and solid.”
It all adds up to a vintage Stingray that could be enjoyed as-is or would also be a good candidate for a total restoration, the seller believes.
Our original title said the car had 26,000 miles when in fact it has 126,000. We apologize for the error.
