1972 Chevrolet Chevelle SS 454Offered here is a clean and highly collectible 1972 Chevrolet Chevelle Super Sport. This classic has spent most of its life in Virginia before coming back to the Motor City last year for a full restoration – we still have the original VA title!
This car was completely stripped down to metal and professionally painted by a local Detroit legend who has received awards at Detroit’s AutoRama. It is finished in Cranberry Red with white SS stripes over a black interior. The paint is excellent. Mechanically, the wheels were aligned, leaky gaskets replaced, brakes adjusted, and engine was tuned up. It now looks just as good in person as it does in the photos. There is no rust on this true SS.
The car is a true SS and originally came from the factory with a small block 350. However, that engine was replaced tastefully with a completely rebuilt big block 454 V8 and 400 Turbo-Hydramatic transmission from a 1974 Chevelle. It has the stock 12 bolt posi-traction differential and factory cowl “hood flapper” induction as well. It runs and drives like it was meant to the day it rolled off the showroom floor, offering drivers and passengers a nostalgic riding experience.
The glass is all original A01 Soft Ray Glass with correct date codes except for front windshield. Front windshield has been replaced and is free of chips and scratches. All weather-stripping is new after the repaint. Interior has also been upgraded with new carpet, seat covers, door panels, rear panels, and headliner. Other noteworthy features include factory original SS gauge package, SS steering wheel, new professionally installed RetroAutosound AM/FM radio with optional MP3 auxiliary plug in and 6 X 9 dual cone speakers in the rear.
The wheels are original Chevrolet SS style 15 X 7 Rally II steel rims that are painted in original factory grey color with factory Chevy center caps Hardened chrome lug nuts, and factory trim rings. They are wrapped in new Kelly Charger HR P225/60R15 Performance Tires. Suspension features factory Power steering with variable ratio. Front and rear springs are Moog factory replacements, brand new Monroe gas shocks, and factory front and rear stabilizer bars with new bushings. Steering components are all fresh and recently restored or replaced. Vehicle tracks straight, with a firm but comfortable ride.
It has dual exhaust, Factory Cast Iron solid 2.5 inch pipes (not mandrel bent), into Flowmaster chambered mufflers. No leaks and has awesome acoustics. Rear end is factory G80 Safe-T-Track (posi-traction) 12 bolt rear-end stamped 3.23:1 rear axle ratio. Factory correct, original rear differential option. Ignition is stock appearing factory style HEI distributor updated with Summit Racing HEI high performance overhaul kit, and matching Taylor 8mm HP black wires with new AC spark plugs. Brakes are factory equipped with JL2 Power Front Disc brakes. Brakes are fully serviced with new pads, bearings cleaned & greased. Rear brakes are drum style with new pads and springs. Brakes perform to factory specifications - fresh installation.
This car looks great driving down the road and frankly, even up close, it is very presentable for local car shows or cruises. It is a very nice car to drive with smooth acceleration, and clean comfortable cabin. The performance idle through the chambered mufflers makes it a hit at the cruise in or at the stop light. The car has a strong running 454, which is desirable upgraded and greatly improves the overall driving experience of the car. This Chevelle would make a great reliable daily driver that would be a blast to drive everyday to work. It is really a fun car to drive with its throaty exhaust and excellent power.
You can drive this car literally anywhere without issue. A well-cared for restoration seeking a new garage near you.
