If you like your Chevelles fast, unusual, and well-preserved, perhaps this 1972 SS is what you''ve been looking for. With an SS-only Midnight Bronze paint job that will make it stand out in a crowded field, plus a bulletproof drivetrain, it''s the kind of car you won''t be able to resist driving every chance you get. Just one glance at the photos will tell you this car is something special. Sure, the Chevelle is one of the best-looking muscle cars of all time, but with the cool paint on this one, it goes to an entirely different level. Not quite brown, but not gold, either, it stands out like no red car ever could and a factory build sheet confirms that it''s the original color. But you don''t put paint like this on wavy bodywork, so a great deal of time was invested in getting the sheetmetal right before a drop of paint went on, although as a clean survivor, it was admittedly a pretty easy job. Then there are the correct white SS stripes which give this car a bunch of attitude that fits it perfectly, especially with a cowl-induction hood to set them off. Twin racing mirrors, correct SS grille and badges, and nice original bumpers all turn this into a Chevelle that people will be drawn to without even knowing why. The black interior is all original, which is a very good thing. Too many guys go crazy trying to update their cars, but nothing looks better than original gear in a vintage piece of muscle, and the seats, door panels, and carpets give this one a very clean look. There might be a few signs of age, but it''s evident everywhere you look that this car has been well-maintained from the beginning. Note the center console with a horseshoe shifter, a 4-spoke steering wheel that has a correct SS horn button, and a full set of gauges including a factory tach. The back seat looks virtually unused, and despite the Chevelle''s penchant for Friday night cruising, it still carries its original radio in the dash. There''s also a nicely preserved trunk with its original mat and a full-sized spare tire. The biggest of Chevelle engines in 1972 was the 402 cubic inch V8, which is what it says on the air cleaner. This is the original, numbers-matching engine and it has apparently never been out of the car. Given the durability of these engines and the relatively low-stress build (compression ratios were down in ''72), you should have no worries about enjoying this one as intended. It looks quite good for its age and thanks to a recent tune-up, runs superbly. New parts throughout the engine bay confirm that this car has always been important to its owner, and the front end and brakes have been rebuilt within the past year. A TH400 3-speed automatic transmission doesn''t mind the big block''s torque and a set of Flowmaster mufflers give it that racy tone you''ve been after. The chassis is original and very nicely preserved and it rolls on proper SS wheels with 225/60/15 BFGoodrich T/A radials. Documented with a build sheet, original window sticker, Protect-O-Plate, dealer invoice, title documents, and owner''s manual, this exceptional survivor proves that resale red isn''t the hottest color on the block.
