This low-mile 1972 Corvette is a Canadian time capsule


Before David Hallman finally managed to buy the car under the tarp, it had been squirreled away in storage for more than four decades. Actually, the squirrels nesting behind the seats didn’t live there that long. But the last time the 1972 Chevrolet Corvette was driving on the road, Richard Nixon was still denying his involvement in the Watergate scandal, NASA launched Skylab, and Tony Orlando and Dawn topped the Billboard charts with “Tie a Yellow Ribbon Round the Old Oak Tree.”

Snow tires on it? Who drives vettes in the snow?


Haha, good question. The snow tires were mounted the fall of 1972, back then it was just a car!!


I just came across this post. I’m also an original owner of
a 1972 Elkhart Green automatic with saddle vinyl interior. It has a
a lot more miles at 99,000 but it’s been great and I still love it.
