Car description

You probably stopped on this one because it's an iconic 1972 Chevrolet Chevelle SS 454 with serious big block power. But as you dig deeper, you'll discover great upgrades like an overdrive transmission, modern A/C comfort, and one of the slickest paintjobs we've seen. So as you see the high level of investment, you start to understand how great of a deal this is. Also, this Chevelle has the SS quick steer steering box, boxed rear trailing arms, correct SS badging, 12-bolt rear end, and other indications it was an original SS car.
A bright red Chevelle is always a source of pride, but this one is truly a cut above. The Torch Red is fresh from a new application, and so there's a level of gloss and shine most people never get to see. Bodywork is excellent all around, with great gaps and a lot of attention paid to getting those iconic black SS stripes correct. Then there's the cowl induction hood, blacked out grille, hood pins, and all that correct SS badging. There as a serious investment in the bumpers, which always makes us happy on a '72 like this one. Designers did a masterful job of integrating bumpers into the overall styling, but by the mid-70s, federal regulations dictated how these huge bright spots would be utilized. So to have them so mirror-like on this coupe is a great tribute to the day when style was king. In fact, that's exactly what this Chevelle does. It's the last year for the iconic hardtop we all love, and it represents that nostalgia with the best in a correct presentation, right down to the correct SS Mag wheels.
We love it when the exterior stripes are a preview of the interior. And that's especially true when everything Is a deep, dark muscle car black. You can tell there was plenty recently invested here by the tight feeling of the new headliner, crisp seat covers, and plush carpeting (with cool red SS stitching in the floor mats.) Bucket seats are always something we look for in a personal muscle machine like this. In between is a desirable center console with the iconic horseshoe shifter that makes this coupe really feel like a Super Sport should. It has all the right features for the driver, including the grippy NK4 sports steering wheel and the proper round gauge dash with tach. Plus, there are some quality upgrades. The stereo is a retro-style AM/FM/cassette stereo with digital tuner, and there's now the air conditioning running modern R134a so you can stay as cool as you look in this cherry red classic.
When you want the best in an iconic Chevelle only big block power will do. This one looks fantastic with the bright air topper, matching valve covers, and bold block radiating from within the dark engine bay. And the reason why everything looks so fresh and clean, right down to the belts and hoses, is because there's less than 3,500 miles on the whole build. They spent some time restoring this one, because even the decals are correct. So the overall impression almost feels like a 1970s time capsule. But really a car like this, the performance is just as important as the first impression. It inhales deeply through a correct Holley four-barrel carburetor, and it exhales with authority out of the dual exhaust. And this one was built to use its big power on the road. Features like the power steering and front disc brakes make driving anywhere much nicer. Plus, the upgrade to a 700R4 four-speed automatic transmission means you now have highway-friendly overdrive.
Complete with owner's manual, you're looking at a Chevelle that delivers all the best design and power of the icon you remember. Plus, it has all the right upgrades to be easy in the modern world. It's the best of everything, and it can all be your if you're quick enough to grab this deal. Call today!!!
