Here's a great car, decked out in its very rare Pewter Silver Poly, powered by its numbers matching LT-1 350, with a convertible top and ready to go. The last of the chrome bumper cars, this one stands apart thanks to its very modern paint and overall color combination.

The end of an era. Muscle cars were being insured out of the hands of the youth and the EPA was killing the hot (albeit planet-killing) engines with terrific efficiency. 1972...for the performance enthusiast there wasn't much good news. No Hemi, the 454 was neutered, the Boss cars were done. Chevrolet did have one last card to play, somehow sneaking its high-powered, solid lifter LT-1 engine by the sniffer tests one last time. Small block Chevy performance wouldn't again be the same for two decades.

Rated at 360 horsepower for 1970, the LT-1 sported 11:1 compression, solid lifters, a big dual plane intake, a big Holley double pumper, 2.02 valve heads, four bolt main caps and more. For 1971, compression dropped to 9:1, lowering output to 330hp. 1972's engine was the same as 1971, but new SAE net ratings pegged the car at 255hp. Don't let anyone tell you the '72 car isn't potent--these are the last of the high-winding small blocks!

The motor here is the correct CKY code, VIN number matching, 010 unit installed at St. Louis on the assembly line. Chevrolet also screwed their heads on straight in '72, finally setting a code in the VIN for the engine. There's an “L” there for this car, further confirming its LT-1 origins. The proper Winters intake and “double hump” heads are here, topped by a new Barry Grant Road Demon 750cfm carb with an electric choke. Correct, no, but far more drivable. Proper hoses and clamps are in place and the engine compartment looks fresh. Only a couple hundred miles have passed on the odometer since the frame-off restoration took place.

Inside, new seat covers and carpeting join the very nice original door panels and largely original trim. That's not a bad thing, as this was a well cared-for car. The gauges are clear and work as designed, the clock's been converted to quartz movement, there's a Classic Autosound cassette deck in the dash, new sill plates on the floor and an original sport wheel in your hands. A couple stabs of the throttle and the motor fires to life, sounding off with the last solid lifter muted clatter of the muscle car era.

Many hours were spent stripping, priming, smoothing and painting the excellent body shell. Panels were aligned with the body on the frame, gaps were set and the bulk of the massaging took place. The body was then lifted from its frame, set on a jig, and final primer and paint coats went on.

The chassis, meanwhile, was completely disassembled, blasted and painted appropriate colors. New and rebuilt brakes, new lines and new suspension components went on. The original, numbers matching transmission was rebuilt, the axle refurbished, a new fuel tank went in, new tires went on the original rally wheels and more went on.

Remarried to its chassis, the body's final assembly took place. A new top went on, new chrome trim and emblems were installed, and everything was adjusted and set for duty. The hood's indent received its black paint, clean glass went back into the doors and new lenses went into their holes. After months of work the Corvette was once again ready to roll.

A rare color, a documented restoration, numbers matching drivetrain...this last-of-the-best car is one to enjoy while you watch it appreciate.
