Just like its predecessor, the 1972 Chevrolet Corvette did not see a lot of aesthetic deviations from the 1970 Corvette. It was the highest-selling model out of the three by a reasonable difference, finally finding the popularity the line hadn’t really found since 1969. By this year, however, convertibles were on their way out of the mainstream market. Only a fifth of the produced 1972 Corvettes were convertibles, a testament to the general preference for coupe models.
For the first time, the majority of the Corvette production slate featured automatic transmission (54%), and the 1972 model saw the popular key-activated anti-theft alarm system becoming a production standard. Although the iconic Stingray convertible was no longer selling as much as it used to, the Corvette, once mostly known for their convertibles, was surviving and thriving as a coupe vehicle.
