1972 Corvette



The Corvette was originally sold new in Phoenix as a 1972 big block 454-4spd. It was then converted into a road racing car. The car comes with log books back to 1983 with Larry Blanton racing it at Riverside and Firebird Int Raceway. Larry also ran the car in the 1984 Eloy Grand Prix in Arizona. The entire race was televised and is on youtube at: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4ZMRgJ2l9Wg&t=129s

The Corvette was later acquired by Bob Sobey who continued to race and develop the Corvette.

In addition to Riverside and Firebird Raceway, the Corvette has 40 years of racing history at  Watkins Glen, Lime Rock, Willow Springs, Mosport, and more. This is not a later-built Corvette race car. It is a period race car with period history at important race tracks across the U.S. and Canada.



The car has a 425 h.p. dry sump Beatty & Woods Chevy 350 with ARP hardware, Crower cam etc. The engine has 12 hours on it.

The Corvette has a Tremec TKO 5 spd with steel bellhousing. It has fresh rear suspension, recent paint, Hooker headers, a fuel cell, and Wilwood brakes. The front and rear suspension are fully adjustable.

The Corvette was last raced in August, 2022. It is in very good condition throughout. Spares include 5 American Racing wheels.

The Corvette is currently located in the Chicago area.

This is a whole lot of turn-key historic Corvette performance for the price.  Contact us for more information and assistance with shipping, or picking the car up. We can help with both.
