Car description

My 1972 Chevrolet Corvette Big Block. This is a real "W" code big block car. I have owned the car for 10 years. Purchased it in Houston Texas and flew there/drove it home. Undertook a 2 year frame off restoration completed in 2010 which included every nut and bolt on the vehicle, Engine is NOT numbers matching, it is a replacement motor that was in the car when I bought it with Block Casting #3999289 which is a 72-73 454 Block, Engine VIN is partial T0120TRH. Heads are original C2872 casting date which is March 28, 1972. Transmission is P1T30C and is original to the car. I believe it's an M21 close ratio, but no way to know for sure without disassembling it. Engine was rebuilt and was already bored .60 over so it now bored max .70 over making this a 469 CI engine. Cam was also upgraded during the rebuild, this is a very powerful engine. The car has deluxe interior, factory air, power brakes, power steering. Every option available other than tilt/tele steering column. Upgraded to Edelbrock Torker II manifold and Edelbrock carb, HEI distributor with MSD ignition. White face gauge appliques, LED taillights. Otherwise the vehicle is stock. (I have the original manifold which goes with the car). Vehicle is refinished in Ontario Orange, it was white when I bought it, had a Targa Blue trim tag but found no targa blue when redoing the car. Only 3500 miles since completed. Vehicle runs perfectly, everything works. It is a 10 year old restoration and has been driven, so there are a few small chips behind the rear tires, there is a small crack where the right rear bumper bolt goes through the fiberglass body to hold the bumper on and there are some very small paint bubbles on the rear spoiler area. This is the last year of removable rear glass and chrome front and rear bumpers and this is probably one of the finest examples in existence of a very rare and highly optioned big block corvette. If you have never driven one of these it is an experience. They handle quite well, have 4 wheel power disc brakes and stop/turn like a modern vehicle. I am willing to deliver within a 150 mile radius of Fond du Lac, Wisconsin, but would much prefer you come pick the vehicle up in person. I have many more pictures available.
