This 1962 Chevrolet Corvette represents the final year of the first generation in all the best ways. It takes a sharp-looking icon and gives it the right touch of investments - including the upgraded V8 - to deliver a detailed classic that also is a proper driver.
This Corvette was restored only about a decade ago, and since then, it has spent most of that time in the hands of one careful owner. So the red paint has the clean and solid style that you want for a true red-blooded icon. You'll love how there's a deep luster that makes it look good when you go cruising today, and it's just a professional detail away from being ready for the car show. The other reason why it's so show-ready is that you have a clean and complete package with bright hub caps, even brighter bumpers, clean lines, complete trim, and even a new set of cleverly coordinating redline tires.
The black folding is attractive against the red paint, and the color-matched hardtop makes for quite an attractive coupe. But of course, the way that you'll enjoy this one the most is with no roof at all. The all-black interior has a timelessly stylish look against the red exterior, and so that seems ideal for a timelessly stylish car. It has all the best driver-oriented features, like bucket seats, classic grippy steering wheel, robust floor shifter, and a full set of gauges, including the important tach front-and-center. It has the right little details, like the dash-mounted rear-view mirror and the AM radio that's still there for display. This is the last time a Corvette would have a trunk for nearly 35 years, and so that even has a clean and complete style any time you want to fully tell this part of the Corvette's history.
The motor is a nice upgrade. The small block V8 is what elevated the C1 into a true sports car status, and so this one continues that tradition by elevating it with a fresher crate motor. This is a newer 350 cubic-inch V8, and so it showcases the center bolt head design with the attractive black valve covers red Chevy lettering. You also have a Holley four-barrel carburetor, an aluminum intake, electronic ignition, and headers feeding the dual exhaust. And the four-speed manual transmission gives you proper control over it all. But while the motor gives you added power, the full powertrain package makes sure it gives you the full classic C1 experience that lets you feel the road like only a lightweight vintage car can.
The sale comes complete with the owner's manual, build receipts, and restoration photos. It's all part of a history showing proper investments and good care that makes for an irresistible icon. Call today!!!
