First off I would like to say hello to my new vette family. I have just bought this beautiful vette my first, but not sure exactly what it is. The vin and title say 72, but the body looks to me like a 78 greenwood widebody. please anyone with knowledge about this vette please let me know. Thank You.

Well, obviously the widebody kit could have been added to any C3, but the VIN # should tell the story of the underlying car. A 1972 should be:

1Z37* 2S******. It decodes as follows:

1= Chevrolet
Z= Corvette
37 = Coupe (Convertible is 67)
* = motor (For example, the 1972 LT-1 350 was "L")
2 = 1972 model year
S = St. Louis assembly plant
****** = sequence number, such as "514041"

My 1972 LT-1 convertible = 1Z67L2S514041

Hope this helps. There were many different wide-body kits available for these cars. For some reason your photo isn't showing up on my computer so I can't give you much guidance on that. Some of the kits were pretty good, others less so. Good luck with your Corvette.

I think the bumpers and bubble window point to a later year than 72'. I may be wrong. :huh:
