1972 Chevrolet Chevelle SS396 Convertible

Gateway Classic Cars of Dallas is excited to offer a 1972 Chevrolet Chevelle SS 396 Convertible!

If you like green, then this 1972 Chevrolet Chevelle is the convertible you need to own. In addition to being covered in your favorite color, it's a matching-numbers 396 car with factory A/C, making it a highly desirable ragtop from the tail end of the muscle car era.

Code 48 Sequoia Green is this car's original color and compared to a lot of the greens they were turning out in the early '70s, it's simply gorgeous. It's deep, dark, and has just a hint of metallic in it so it really glows when the sun hits it just right. This one will stand out just about anywhere with its great combination. It's also easy to see that the body is in good condition. That hood is a real cowl-induction unit, which would disappear after 1972 and the white SS stripes make for an appealing package that looks like horsepower on wheels. Nice chrome trim, including the bumpers and revised 1972 grille, shows well against the green paint and proper SS badges are in place to finish it off.

The handsome green bucket seat interior is also correct for this car and it's a fantastic alternative to the more frequently seen white or tan choices. The seats and door panels are in very good condition, and the console features our favorite horseshoe shifter. The dash pad is vintage 1972 and holding up well. Instrumentation includes a factory tach as well as a set of auxiliary gauges under the dash and the entertainment system has been upgraded with an AM/FM head unit and custom kick panels with built-in speakers. Factory A/C and a tilt wheel are additional options that make this drop-top even more appealing, as is a white power convertible top with matching green boot. The trunk carries a correct mat that might be original as well as a full-sized spare.

Open the cowl-induction hood and you'll find the original, numbers-matching 396 cubic inch V8, which was a dying breed in 1972. Effortless and easy in everything it does, this big block pulls the convertible around with enthusiasm. Some of that is due to the Edelbrock carburetor and intake manifold, the latter of which was painted Chevy Orange to blend in, as were the valve covers to give it a factory look. The engine bay is nicely detailed and in excellent condition, suggesting that someone spent a lot of time and money getting it into shape a few years ago. Underneath, long-tube headers were added along with a throaty exhaust system, so it certainly sounds like all the horsepower showed up to the party. A TH400 3-speed automatic transmission and 12-bolt are rugged enough to take anything you throw at them and four-wheel disc brakes remedy what was one of the Chevelle's lone shortcomings. Restomod 17" Wheels with Continental High-Performance Tires.


A handsome, trouble-free cruiser in unusual colors and with a strong pedigree. What's not to love? Call today! To view this 1972 Chevrolet Chevelle in greater detail, including HD pictures and an HD video, visit or our Dallas showroom. For more information, please call 817-310-9400 or email
