Une opportunité qui ne se présente pas tous les jours, même aux Etats-Unis où elle est maintenant très recherchée ! It is a true line sculpted with sharp edges that emphasize aggressivity and wasp waist tapering at the share of passenger and the other in the manner of a bottle of Coca Cola. A resemblance which has also value him that nickname. Fires still mounted retractable shutters and a fast back like the Dino, make a beautiful beast. Designed by Bill Mitchell and always developed by the talented Zora ArkusDuntov, this generation of Corvette had a career record of longevity (from 1968 to 1982). With almost 1 of 2 Corvettes model of all generations, from the mold of the C3, no wonder that this generation is the one that embodies the spirit of the name. Side to the basic 350ci appears LT1 series with a mechanical tappets inflated to 370 hp and able to withstand without flinching ... 6000 tr / min! The gearbox is mechanical 4-speed, the LT-1 C3 never had automatic box, the bridge has a ratio of 3.70. The Clean Air Act decree has become law, the powers are expected to fall inexorably. It is well finished runaway inflation and the arms race ... even if the effects of the new standards does not make too much sense in 1971, adopting
a very low compression rate , allowing a significant reduction in mechanical octane requirements, the 5.7l 300 hp will drop to 270 hp, while the LT1 now rises to 330ch ... fortunately the truck couple is still there! Matching numbers, this superb LT1 Corvette 1972 belongs to its owner since 2008, it had found in California. It was restored in the US, work immortalized with a photo folder, in fact we can see that it was stripped to frame processing hollow bodies and epoxy paint for the rails. Its color "Elkar Green" is the original, unusual she received the nickname of "The Mouse That Roared" hear "The Mouse That Roared"! The engine has also been completely refurbished in the USA, the bill unfortunately missing the call but a trace exists in the registry C3 or the former owner actually marked, and where he posted pictures of the restoration of this corvette .
