FACTORY CORRECT ONTARIO ORANGE OVER SADDLE, #'S MATCHING 350 V8, AUTO, A/C, WOW!

This dialed-in Chevrolet Corvette manages to capture 1972 within its unique paint job, encapsulating the love of the rugged Wild West even better than 'Jeremiah Johnson' did the same year. Sure, the motif may be a bit on the nose, but it still manages to possess a rather unusual combination of both beauty and brawn, featuring that unique livery, comfortable leather interior, and a numbers-matching 350 V8 under the hood. And with desirable options like T-tops, factory A/C, and several power options, this super-clean, 'Howdy, Dude' Corvette is practically begging for the open road. Take a closer look but do so quickly, because everyone in Texas is already itching to take this Stingray out to play.

Code 987 Ontario Orange is a handsome shade not often seen on chrome bumper Corvettes - not too brash, yet not too meek – a period-perfect color that looks great on the timeless Stingray shape. Despite being one of the more popular colors in 1972 with 4,891 Corvettes built wearing this bright tuxedo, not many have survived decades of color changes and restorations. Just a quick look at the market reveals how few are available for sale in this livery, which is a shame because with the ever-changing ... Please ask for the full description.

FACTORY CORRECT ONTARIO ORANGE OVER SADDLE, #'S MATCHING 350 V8, AUTO, A/C, WOW!

This dialed-in Chevrolet Corvette manages to capture 1972 within its unique paint job, encapsulating the love of the rugged Wild West even better than 'Jeremiah Johnson' did the same year. Sure, the motif may be a bit on the nose, but it still manages to possess a rather unusual combination of both beauty and brawn, featuring that unique livery, comfortable leather interior, and a numbers-matching 350 V8 under the hood. And with desirable options like T-tops, factory A/C, and several power options, this super-clean, 'Howdy, Dude' Corvette is practically begging for the open road. Take a closer look but do so quickly, because everyone in Texas is already itching to take this Stingray out to play.

Code 987 Ontario Orange is a handsome shade not often seen on chrome bumper Corvettes - not too brash, yet not too meek – a period-perfect color that looks great on the timeless Stingray shape. Despite being one of the more popular colors in 1972 with 4,891 Corvettes built wearing this bright tuxedo, not many have survived decades of color changes and restorations. Just a quick look at the market reveals how few are available for sale in this livery, which is a shame because with the ever-changing fashion of the world it looks pretty up to date with today's sophisticated color palettes. Add in the incredibly unique Gold and Bronze stripe work on the hood, T-tops, and rear end, and the result is one of the coolest-looking C3s that we've ever featured. It practically looked like Clint Eastwood riding into a dusty town when it first entered our showroom. All the panel gaps are factory correct, and it has a fantastic gloss to the finish and the fiberglass has none of the stress cracking in the usual spots. It's not a show car, in fact the finish shows enough signs of age and gentle use that it likely has a few decades on it, but the curb appeal is still through the roof even with the solid driver-quality presentation. And when it comes to C3s, you're either a chrome bumper guy or a rubber bumper guy; this one sports the original style chrome units that frame the egg crate grilles up front and add further interest to the flat rear panel with CORVETTE block letters above. The stainless trim is in great shape too, and the killer side-pipes at the flanks are like the shiny spurs on a trusty set of Goodyear Welt cowboy boots.

Code 421 Saddle interior is pretty much all you could ask for to continue the theme started by the exterior colors, and you have to admit that the combination works extremely well. Hey, the name alone is very apropos. It's also likely to be one of only a handful of cars you'll see out on the road in this color combination, making it a standout at shows and Corvette events. As an original car, the line between the original components and any newer pieces is blurry, but that's a good thing, with plush carpets working in conjunction with supple leather seat covers on the buckets and matching upholstery on the door panels. The entire interior is very inviting and in great shape, with all-day comfort and long-lasting durability that can only be had when using correct and original materials. The dash and protective pad is in great shape, with none of the cracks and weathering so many of these cars suffer from, and the factory center console houses the shifter for the automatic transmission and the controls for the A/C system. Woodgrain applique continues the Western theme inside, and it still looks great adorning the doors and center console, warming things up with an air sophistication. All the original gauges remain in great shape in the center stack and ahead of the driver, as does the 3-spoke steering wheel, further proof that someone cherished this car from day one even before it was restored. The options list isn't very long but you do get the best one of all – factory A/C – and it's fully functional thanks to an upgrade to R134a refrigerant, just like the original AM/FM stereo that's remarkably still in the dash, and the power window controls at the flanks of the emergency brake. Color-matched removable T-Tops continue the unique stripe work and instantly transform this Stingray into an open-air cruiser, and although no Corvette ever made has plentiful storage space, you can still sneak a day bag or two behind the buckets.

The engine is numbers matching 350/200HP V8, which was the base engine in 1972. Nevertheless, it makes an impressive amount of torque and moves the Corvette with enough potency that most cars are still advised to leave it alone. The factory-style engine bay shows signs of loving care throughout its life with lots of maintenance throughout, including Chevy Orange paint on the engine and bright finned valve covers, along with a bright chrome air cleaner, chrome distributor cover, and chromed-out alternator. The original TH400 3-speed automatic transmission still shifts power to the F41 7-Leaf Spring set-up out back, and the side-exhaust system sounds even better than it looks. It's incredibly solid and tidy underneath, with evidence of clean living everywhere you look, and power steering and 4-wheel disc brakes vastly improve the Corvette's road manners. Classic Corvette slotted wheels look awesome as always and ride on a set of 225/70/15 BFGoodrich T/A white-letter radials that finish the look properly.

Clean, honest Corvettes don't get much cooler than this, especially if you're the kind of guy or gal who likes to leave their mark. And just like the mysterious Pale Rider, this black hat outlaw likely won't be with us very long. Call today!
