Default F/S: "STUNNING" 1972 Multiple NCRS Top Flight LT1 Convertible

For sale is my 1972 LT1 convertible "Multiple Time" NCRS Top Flight award recipient. Car is the "Real Deal" LT1 convertible authenticated with original NCRS judging sheets and Top Flight certificates. Car received a very correct, very thorough "Frame Off" nut and bolt rotisserie restoration and has been climate control stored and rarely driven since the restoration was completed. Elkhart paint fit and finish is laser straight and some of the best paint you will find. Undercarriage is very correct with all the correct tags, paint markings and stencils in place. Interior was also completely restored and shows as new. Engine bay is also correct in appearance and performs exceptionally well. Every light, buzzer, high idle circuit, reverse lockout and you name it works as it should, this car is for the most discriminating LT1 buyer and is an "Investment Grade" automobile. This car is ready to drive, show or judge immediately. I will let the photos do the rest of the talking. Asking $59,900 or "Educated Offer". Enjoy the photos!!!

Thanks for all the great comments guys pertaining to the quality of my LT1! As far as the bumpers are concerned, the reason the bumpers fit so well is because all of the necessary steps were taken during the bodywork phase of this restoration. It pains me to see highend cars with nice shiny paint jobs on top of terrible bodywork. My car had hundreds of hours invested into bodywork alone prior to any color being applied, all weatherstrips were fit during the bodywork phase and removed prior to paint, this ensures perfect panel alignment and door gaps. Additionally, every piece of trim, emblems, headlight doors, wiper door, door handles, marker lights, taillights, bumpers and doors were taken on and off the car "Numerous" times to achieve bodywork perfection. This is a painstaking process that not many folks take the time to do during the bodywork phase of a restoration. I firmly believe this restoration discipline is what separates the "Highend" cars from the middle of the pack. Thanks again for all the nice comments.

If I remember correctly the last 72 LT1 AC vert I saw sold fetched over 80K. That said this non-Air coupe is priced right and drop dead gorgeous.

Yes, if my car was an "A/C" LT1 convertible it would be priced considerably higher. That being said, I have had two offers on the car from fellow CF Members, just not quite where I need or should be on their offers therefore the car is still available. Come on guys, take a look at the latest LT1 Buyers Guides and you will realize the value this car represents at this price point. These LT1 convertibles are highly collectible and getting very difficult to find anymore.

Great Looking LT1. Not until one has done a restoration like you did will they appreciate the time and money that goes into it.
These 70,71, and 72 LT1s will be the next 66 and 67 big block cars.
Plus, the performance is on par with the big block cars without all the weight in the front.

Nice LT-1. Probably worth the money but that's up to the seller and buyer. But let's not get confused. While terrific cars, C2 big blocks stand apart from the LT-1s in style, performance and desireability. C2s and C3s are different cars.

Beautiful LT-1. GLWS.

I don't mean to hijack this thread, but I am not confused. I bought a 1966 small block new because I didn't want the weight up front and it performed just as good or better than the big block cars. Many articles have been printed on this. Style is a personal perception.I also like the styling of the C2s as they are unique. I then sold my 66 and bought a 69 because I liked the styling and the aero advantages. Many of the road racers did the same. The chassis, etc. is basically the same on both cars. The C2 desireability is there, but when those cars will not be available, what will people buy?
I believe the LT1 cars will be the next big hit.

Agreed LT1's do stand apart from the c2 big blocks. Many articles written about how an LT1 would clearly be faster around a road course than a big block. When I decided to add a Corvette to my collection, I could have gotten anything I wanted.....Lt1 was the answer for both performance and styling
