Unrestored 1972 Chevrolet Chevelle SS is an incredibly documented big-block time capsule
Fully documented and in good condition cars are every collector’s dream, especially if they have never been restored, thus keeping everything as original as day one.
And this 1972 Chevelle SS is an impressive time capsule, the documentation of which is certainly impressive.
First of all, let’s just say the obvious and say the car is in fairly good condition, although it’s not exactly a perfect 10. The Craigslist seller himself explains that this is a rust-free California and Nevada car (currently owned by the Chevelle) that needs a complete restoration to look like new.
However, given that the car and everything in it is still in its original condition, its appearance is nonetheless impressive, with the owner claiming that it has always been stored in a garage.
But the most impressive part is the documentation that comes with the Chevelle SS. In addition to the original service logs and owner’s manual, the seller still has dealership receipts and even airline tickets that the original owner purchased to visit the assembly plant and attend the assembly. building the car.
As if that weren’t enough already, there’s also a full history of every visit the Chevrolet has made to the gas pump, along with the mileage and everything in between.
As for what’s hiding under the hood, the 402 (6.6-liter) V8 drives and drives like new, but needless to say, that’s not necessarily surprising given the overall condition of the car. This is obviously a numbered transmission with the original keys, with the odometer showing 99,000 miles (159,000 km).
Unsurprisingly, this Chevelle SS in such good condition, with everything still original and no missing parts, still running and with full documentation, doesn’t come cheap. The owner expects to receive $ 59,000 for the car, and you can check it out in person in San Francisco.
