During that top notch restoration the car received its one-and-only repaint of GMs striking code 989 War Bonnet Yellow paint that has been well-maintained and presents an extremely glossy shine. Unlike a lot of classic Vettes this car has not been over-restored which means it still displays factory correct panel gaps and its fiberglass body fits together exactly the way it would've when leaving the showroom in 1972. The result is an ace Corvette with an awesome finish that is free of ripples. cracks or waves. 1972 was the last year for chrome front bumpers on the Corvette and this cars original bumper is in very good condition with the exception of single scrape and presents a great shine. The factory LT-1 bulging hood features painted black stripes that border correct ''LT-1'' callouts and sit in front of pristine chrome accents.

At the back of the motor a correct distributor sits under a chrome shield and at the front of the motor you'll find the cars original Frigidaire AC compressor sandwiched between fresh hoses and fresh V-belts. With a smooth coat of satin black paint the car's engine bay presents well and features a rebuilt master cylinder and power brake booster and a correct radiator and fan shroud.

Exceptionally clean the frame is devoid of the typical amount of scrape marks and dents you'd expect after almost four decades of road time and the solid fiberglass floors appear to have never been hit or repaired. Behind the engine a hardcore M21 Muncie 4-speed sends power to a Posi-traction rear end that houses tall for 1972 3. 36 gears. The close ratio transmission slips easily through the gears and when combined with the cars standard power steering and power disc brakes it makes for a quick great driving car that might even surprise a few drivers in modern performance machines.
