Corvettes for Sale: 1972 Corvette 454 Offered in Rare Pewter Silver Exterior


It’s not likely the new owner of this A HREF=”https://www.corvetteblogger.com/tag/1972/”>1972 Corvette coupe will meet a similar car coming down the road.

That’s because it’s finished in Pewter Silver, that year’s rarest color that coated just 1,372 out of the 27,004 Stingrays built in the St. Louis factory.

The most distinctive feature about the car is its powerful replacement 454 V8 engine that rests underneath a hood bulge with 454 badging.

A video walk-around of this Stingray, which includes a cold start, reveals a nice paint job, and an equally nice black vinyl interior that includes high-back bucket seats and woodgrain trim accenting the center console and doors.
