Convertible
1972 marked the end of the fully 'chrome bumpered' Vettes. It was also the last year for the pop-out rear window on the coupe and the powerful LT1 engine offering. As convertibles comprised only 24% of the total production in 1972 and there were only 1,741 LT1 cars built, the unofficial number of the LT1 convertible logically settles around 400 units. This California car had factory air conditioning componentry installed post-production, so it is not original equipment.

The legendary 350 CID LT1 power-plant was first introduced in 1970 - available in Camaro Z28 and Corvette. This potent engine delivered a factory-rated 370 horsepower - on carburetion! It was a solid lifter motor featuring a forged-steel crankshaft, 4-bolt main block, 11:1 compression ratio, impact extruded pistons, high-lift camshaft, low-restriction exhaust, aluminum intake manifold, 4-barrel carburetor, and finned aluminum rocker covers. In 1971, virtually all engines were detuned with reduced compression ratios to tolerate lower octane fuel. As a result, the now 9:1 compression high-performance LT1 dropped to 330 horsepower - still fairly strong by most standards. By 1972, horsepower ratings were changed from SAE gross to SAE net, which meant the 'advertised' ratings dropped to 255 horsepower. However, in reality, the 1972 LT1 was exactly the same motor as the 1971.
