What was the standard engine package? How to identify the LT-1?
I am looking at a 1972 Vette at a local dealer. The car has a 350 with a 4spd. How can I tell if it indeed is a LT-1 option. Also, checking for numbers matching. The Odometer reads 62K. The asking price is $18,900. The car is in excellent shape, but this seems a little high to me. Any advice would be appreciated.
Hello, Here is some information on deciphering the VIN. If I were you, I'd print it out and take it with me. http://www.idavette.net/facts/72.htm Actually, according to Manheim Goldbook, that is an outstanding price for a 1972 Corvette. I'm not sure if you have a convertible or T-Top, but either way, go here and check it out: http://www.manheimgold.com/car_lo.html Corvettes aren't under "Chevrolet," by the way. They're under "Chevrolet-Corvette." Best of luck! CarGrrl
If it is a LT-1 that is cheap!!!!A LT-1 has solid lifters. If it is a LT-1 with air you are stealing because they only made about 240 of these with air cond.The CORVETTE BLACK BOOK gives a lot of details about these and you can get this at any book store.
look for the engine code on the front passenger side of the block,just below the head .
