1972 Chevrolet Camaro
This 1972 Chevrolet Camaro offers a high level of road-readiness combined with its sharp, second-generation look that's draped in its original color. It's running plenty strong to provide miles and miles of enjoyment while you ponder the option of either driving it as is or adding some focused attention on a few areas to bring it to an entirely new level. Its appealing Mulsanne blue shade, complemented by a pair of broad white stripes running the lengths of its hood and deck lid, is the same color it began life with and it still puts on a strong showing, with nice, even pigmentation from front to back. Basking in the sun, this '72 looks particularly sharp. While it sits on what is largely the same F-body platform as that of its pivotal predecessor, you can see right away that second generation Camaros like this one sit lower and wider than their predecessors, with an almost fastback-like rear roofline that brings to mind its Chevy teammate, the Corvette. Up front, a fresh looking, deep black grille with its "SS" badge sits between its wideset headlights - parting the chrome split bumper that's in excellent condition. The downward-pointed tailpipes were a winning style element when this Camaro came out and they still look great now. The black vinyl interior just beyond the doors presents an interesting proposition - both the high-backed front bucket seats and the rear bench in back are clean and comfortable and they sit over an expanse of black carpeting, so you'll have a very solid vantage point from which to navigate this classic - but should you so choose, you could also transform this interior into a top notch driving environment by installing a new dash pad and refurbishing the center console. You'll find aftermarket oil pressure and temperature gauges just below the dash that are both in good working order, and all control switches and knobs are present and accounted for, so there's nothing keeping this Chevy classic from getting out on the road just as soon as you bring it home. In back, the trunk area looks straight, with a fresh-looking liner covering its floor and a solid rubber seal sitting under the deck lid to keep the elements out. Below the hood, the engine compartment is as clean and tidy as you could want. A 350 cubic inch V8 sits at its center between the black inner fenders, sporting a 4-barrel Edelbrock carb and intake manifold as well as an aftermarket performance cam to up its power game, as well as a pair of very sharp chrome M/T valve covers. The engine exhales into a pair of long tube headers, while the 3-speed automatic transmission sitting just behind helps deliver a low-effort, high reward driving experience that's also enhanced by strong wheel response. Unlike so many of its counterparts from the era, you won't find any steering numbness here - simply put, you turn and this car abides. Power brakes at all four corners - with discs in front - deliver fade resistant stops as this vintage muscle car cruises on its great looking polished wheels with GM center caps carrying Turbo-Tech G/T radial tires. This 1972 Chevrolet Camaro is a sharp looking, strong driving classic that's ready for action as is, with the potential to take its game even higher with a little attention. Call today!
