Description

Corvettes are all about tradition. So more than just the enhanced V8, both tops, four-on-the floor, this 1962 Chevrolet Corvette is desirable because it has stayed in the same family all its life. So now it's looking for someone to carry on the tradition.


Not only is Roman Red the original color for the car, but also parts of it are the same that was applied at the factory over half a century ago. That's what you get with a car that was part of a tradition. This convertible was a gift to the consignor's father when he graduated college. He is the only owner of record, besides his son who inherited this Corvette. So it has a true lineage to go with some of its survivor-like qualities. More than just personal history, the '62 is a sought-after machine for being the final year for the first-generation Corvette. It has all the best classic elements like the quad headlights, bumpers that bisect the body lines, and a real trunk. Plus, only the last two years received the sporty ducktail rear end with the introduction of the now-iconic quad taillights. And because this has been cherished like a family heirloom, it's complete right down to the factory wheel covers. This one even comes with both tops, so you can easily put the new white folding roof in place on a whim, or you can use the color-matched hardtop for a more coupe-like profile.


Of course, your real favorite way to drive will be with no top at all. The highly original black interior still looks nice, and so you'll proudly remain open to the world. Bucket seats and a deep dual cowl dash instantly make you understand that the Corvette is a sports car carved out specially for two people. When you grab the thin and grippy classic steering wheel, reach for the shifter, and watch the tach needle dance, you get a true tingle of old-school performance.


The 327 cubic-inch V8 looks good with the large air topper and Corvette script valve covers. This is an upgraded later block that includes an upgraded camshaft and four-barrel carburetor (originals also come with the sale.) This was done so that this could be built closer to the performance of the desirable high-compression 340 hp Corvettes of '62. It has received the right care over the years, and even a new generator was installed earlier this year. So the powerful motor fires up readily, and it runs smoothly. And you get to take full advantage of it thanks to the four-speed manual transmission.


Complete with owner's manual and car cover, this is a classic Corvette made even more desirable by its story to tell. So if you're looking for speed and distinction, don't miss this vintage icon. Call now!
