1972 Corvette Coupe Big Block --RESTORED/STREET PERFORMER/SHOWCAR-- Featured on the cover of “Vette” Magazine and in their Calander for the same year. AMAZING looking, sounding, and driving. This is the second time we've been privileged enough to have this beauty in our position. The first time was back in 2011. We purchased the car from a man who bought it from the man who had most of the restoration done. The gentleman we got the car from the first time, only bought it as an investment. He made the mistake of bringing the car by my shop to show it off, which worked because subsequently, that led to us buying it from him. After we showed the car through the dealership and let it generate some brand recognition for us, we sold the car to its last owner with 24,500 miles on the restoration. This unique Corvette has undergone several reinventions of itself over the past 25 years. Most recently (about 2 years ago) the car went through a full repaint to the same color specs as it was prior to paint. It looks, first-class! Of course, before all of this it was restored, that restoration was a 3-year job by Mike's Body Shop in Low Moor Iowa, where they spent over $15,000 (that was back in ‘03-'05). In 2008 it was started again and finished with him spending another $12k +. At that time it had the Chevy 454 Engine, Automatic transmission, Turbo 400 driveline, Adjustable suspension. Power steering, Power disc brakes, Air conditioning (not installed/not included). Everything new – too much to list here (some parts were rebuilt). During the second half, all factory seams were ground, and re-glassed, 4 New 17” tires, “INTRO” custom polished wheels. New battery, Lots of like new chrome, Hooker headers and chrome side pipes. New custom light blue paint with pearl white stripe. The underside of the car treated and sealed with POR 15 rust-proof paint. Interior featured: Newer interior, Nice leather seats, New steering wheel, Newer carpet and floor mats, New door panels, Radio delete, New Instrument cluster with the radio opening deleted, New mirrors, new visors and seat belts. So most of everything listed above is still equipped to the car only a few things have been improved or replaced: Replaced L-88 Hood, Paint- the car was stripped and fiberglass that needed work was professionally fixed and the car sprayed (Beautiful) The Engine has been seriously upgraded to a 694 HP 540cu. in. Big Block Chevy-Aluminum Block and heads (a cost of over 20k for the engine). 4 New 18” Nitto tires, and new INTRO polished wheels. The Turbo 400 HD transmission rebuilt with a cooler added. Rear Differential -HD Positraction and case, HD Driveshaft, half shafts, axles and spindles, new dash and instrument bezels, new leather seats, new Bilstein shocks Front and Rear, new Addco sway bars front and rear, New Vette Brakes Front and Rear Leaf Suspension, new Hooker headers with Chrome side pipes. Very few miles since finished, showing only 28,180 miles on the car and around 3k on the engine. This is a car that will not only turn heads because of how amazing it looks and sounds but when you want to get down to business, this pretty face has a mean side, hold on to your head because it MOOOVES. Included in sale: “DYNO Result” printout, Factory Service Manual, Factory Assembly manual, Sportscar buyer's guide, + Owners Manual, a few old pictures, Receipts (some) from both restorations and the printed-out article in Vette Magazine.

About Veits Vettes & Collector Cars

Our cars are specialty cars ...collector cars...award winning original automobiles...show stopping restored autos... and newer highline Specialty cars! We scour the country for those rare gems.

That beautiful Corvette, or Chevy-Ford-Mopar Muscle Car, maybe a Thunderbird that makes you just burst with pride. How about those amazing Retractables or the fun Rampside, or the stylish Mark II Lincoln, or sporty Turbo Trans Am or prestigious Mercedes?

We have collectors all over the world that offer to sell us these cars. In fact that's how we get most of our cars, from collectors. We avoid auctions whenever possible because we know that's where sellers take their misrepresented headaches, problems cars they cant sell locally. But when you sell cars of the quality we do, at a price we hope is competitive, as we try to always do, the buying and inventorying becomes particularly hard. We peruse car clubs, newspapers and word of mouth everywhere we go. It's not at all unusual to drive hours out of our way, to look at 1 car. Sometimes, that drive is really worth it. Small towns can have rare gems. You have to look at a lot of cars, in order to buy only a few. That's a lot of crawling in and under to find the right stuff. But that's ok. We're fussy – because our customers expect it of us. They rely on that.

Many of our clients are repeat buyers. They already are lucky enough to have 1 or more "toys" purchased from us. Sometimes they want to add to their collection, sometimes they just want a different one to play with, or they want to trade. Whatever, their reason, we've got the answer. We've got the investment car. You can drive ours right off the floor and enjoy a day in the sun or take them to a car show, with pride. Lots of our cars have won trophies, regionally and nationally for their new owners.

Of course, we get walk-in sellers too. Someone has a car they have grown tired of, or perhaps they inherited a car they really don't want. Perhaps they just need the money. If that's a specialty car - if it's been lovingly cared for, and is either a collector car, a muscle car, exotic, a hot rod, a classic, a foreign, or an antique automobile - be it a sedan convertible, t-top, targa top, hard top, coupe, convertible or roadster...we're interested.

Our customers come from all walks of life and all parts of the world. Most of the time a new client can't physically come to inspect a particular car. That's ok, we'll walk around it and describe it to them, over the telephone and or Facetime. We have a reputation for giving only honest information, when describing our beauties without leaving anything out.

We do have some customers that leave disappointed....Sometimes a customer wants a 'fixer-upper". Sorry, we simply don't carry those. We don't have those "Winter Projects". The closest we can come to that, is a show worthy, drivable, almost perfect car that someone wants to make into a totally flawless show stopper. It will never be allowed to get dusty - not even the engine. Those buyers will feel like they're in a candy store.

It is our top priority as collectors ourselves, to describe all of our vehicles accurately, to the best of our ability. Even though we scrutinize each car before we buy it, we resell cars, we do not restore or warranty them. Therefore we cannot guarantee any of the claims made by previous owners, their agents, or consigners. We recommend that any individual, contemplating purchasing any used car or collector car- from us or anyone else - to either inspect it themselves, or send a trustworthy individual, to verify that it's description is accurate. If you have trouble locating such an individual, we will be happy to recommend an impartial, unaffiliated individual or firm to assist you .

Okay, you've dreamt about the car you saw here. You can afford it. You can't stand it - you just gotta have it. But now what? You don't want to drive it all the way home. We'll either ship it to you ourselves, or arrange for shipment via a major enclosed car shipper. These shippers do nothing else but ship cars - of all price ranges. They're good, dependable, careful and fully insured. Drivers tell us constantly how cars being delivered, from other sellers, often bring tears of regret to the new owners. But when they ship OUR cars, the proud new owners are never disappointed!!!! We get phone calls all the time, from our clients telling us their joy at the car being just what we said it was.
