This is an original surviving 1972 Corvette LS5 Roadster. I personally uncovered it in a garage six months ago where it had been lost in time since 1986.
By my research, out of about 30,000 Vette’s built in 1972, less than 1500 were ordered like this car.
It was ordered by Ernesto Ancira, of Ancira Chevrolet San Antonio Texas and was his personal car for a few years.
Ordered with a factory 454 Big Block, 4 speed Transmission, Roadster Convertible and with RARE factory Air Conditioning!!!
The engine is matching numbers original. (Confirmed). I drive the car every few days. I had the original carburetor rebuilt, flushed the fuel system, brakes were rebuilt. New wheels and tires. Kept the originals. The car runs and drives good again now!
I kept the original wheels, valve covers, shift ball, Air Conditioning compressor, etc. The car was looked over recently by a Corvette expert. He said all the normal problem areas on these Roadsters were in great shape on this car.
This is truly an investor car with huge potential. The car still sports its original Classic White paint. Its had some touch ups. Leave as is….or restore to profection. The car is still in San Antonio Texas, feel free to contact me Hawkeye Wills at 210-548-1310 with any questions. Thanks!
