This 1972 Chevrolet Chevelle SS Clone carries a thumping big block under the hood and is decked out in an ultra-sharp color combination you just can't help but stare at in admiration.
This '72 closed out the second generation of Chevelles, a model that had undergone quite a transformation a half decade before, when it was outfitted with a sloping, near-fastback rear roofline, wider track and shortened wheelbase that collectively really caught on with the buying public. The following year would herald the arrival of another new generation with an altogether different appearance, so it represents the last of the model in its signature long hood, short deck lid muscle car form. It's certainly a well-dressed specimen - the cranberry red paint is a definite attention getter and was skillfully applied, and the broad pair of stripes running the lengths of its hood and deck lid are no decals - they're painted on with precision. Both the front grille and distinctive rear deck panel are looking very solid, with no pitting or dings in sight and a lap around the car will reveal that the cabin glass is nice and clear with fresh rubber seals surrounding the front and rear windshields. The appropriate badging is all in place including that prominent ""SS"" in back, also presents very well.
The black vinyl interior is fresh and well-maintained, with not much sign of wear on either of the two rows of bench seating and door panels that show no discoloration. It's a very clean vintage driving environment inside these doors - still in factory configuration but impressively functional at the same time. Just beyond the leather wrapped steering wheel, all the gauges in the instrument cluster are easily readable and work just as intended, the textured panel they're recessed into still has its deep black color, the dash pad above shows no splits and even the windows roll up and down very smoothly - definitely not a given with cars of this era. The air conditioning has been upgraded to today's R134a freon and is in very good form and is well up to the task of keeping you and your passengers comfortable as it blows strong and cold through the in- dash vents. You'll find the original AM radio still in place, but hidden in the glove box is a Pioneer AM/FM/CD stereo with both an auxiliary port and Bluetooth connectivity, so there'll be no shortage of audio options at your disposal. Everything is in good order in the trunk area as well - there's a lot of usable space on hand and the full-size spare sits properly wrapped with its lug wrench close by.
This classic is propelled by a 454 cubic inch V8 that sits in the engine compartment very nicely dressed with a pair of spotless chrome valve covers and a Chevy-branded chrome air cleaner that both look great against its orange engine block. In addition to the substantial displacement it offers, the big block is in very good form -carrying an Edelbrock 4-barrel carb on top, it starts up easily and runs very smoothly as it pairs with a 3-speed automatic TH350 transmission. With featured power steering and power brakes that include discs up front, this Chevy is easy to navigate and comes to prompt, fade-resistant stops on its set of 15"" wheels wrapped with Mastercraft Avenger G/T tires.
With its well-fitted appearance and big block power lurking under the hood, this 1972 Chevrolet Chevelle SS Clone is one very sharp looking, strong running classic muscle car. Call today!
