Carolina Blue was a NC dealer only color (if I remember correctly). Too bad it is UNC Blue and not NC State Red :D

Nice looking late 72.

I also own a 1971 LS five convertible built in Arlington with most of the same options as yours that I am building. do you have a picture of the trim tag ? I’d be curious to see that. Very nice car you found there!!!!

So, it's been repainted at some point? I can't believe they found a Carolina blue 72 donor.

Or it didn't need sheet metal, I suppose. Seems odd.

It has had some paint work - a lot of original paint still there.
This is a 71 and only the second Carolina Blue LS5 known to exist of any year. The other is a 1970.
