DESCRIPTION

1962 Chevrolet Corvette

Ever since first being introduced in 1953, the Chevrolet Corvette has continued to be popular and remains one of the most desirable American sports cars ever produced. It has spanned across 8 different generations with the C8 being produced just last year. The first generation was from 1953 to 1962 and despite all belonging to the 1st generation there were still some changes throughout its lifespan like new motors, dual headlights and various other features. Due to public reaction to the concept vehicle they were actually rushed into production. This beautiful Corvette was the last year for the C1 and has underwent a complete frame off restoration. It is a fresh build and has never been shown. It has 53,784 original miles so even before being restored it was a nice solid car. The car has been completely redone with not a single component being untouched. The body is in excellent condition and was repainted in a lacquer Ermine White. It has a very clean finish and nice shine. All of the chrome on the car was refinished and all of the stainless trim polished. The removable hard top is a great feature and lets you transform this classic from a coupe to a convertible with ease. It was never ordered with a soft top. It has all of its original glass which is in very nice condition with no issues. This really is a very clean car throughout. It rides on original wheels with original Corvette hubcaps. Prior to being installed the hubcaps were still in their original Corvette boxes. It has thin white wall tires which work perfectly with the overall look.

When the '62 was introduced it received a larger motor making it the fastest of the C2 generation. Not only does the car have the larger 327 motor but it is a factory fuel injected motor which produced the highest HP out of all the options. All of the original mechanical parts on the car were completely removed and rebuilt. This includes the motor, transmission, rear end, generator, fuel pump, wiper motor, distributor, water pump and of course the fuel injection. It is the numbers matching motor making it one of only 1,918 of these factory fuelies produced. The amount still on the road today are likely much less with even less being in this fully restored condition. The engine compartment is extremely clean and looks like it just rolled out of the factory. The undercarriage of the car is very clean as well and you can tell just looking at it nothing was left in place without being redone.

The interior is done in Red upholstery which works perfectly with the White paint. It has dual bucket seats and everything from the carpet to the headliner is fresh. It has been kept very stock and the dash has been kept all original. The original gauges were all rebuilt and all are working properly. In front of the driver sits the original Red steering wheel. On the center hump sits the original manual shifter and the car moves through the gears nice and smoothly.

If you have been looking for a 1st gen fuelie then this is definitely not one to pass up. It is a beautiful example of one of these cars and is going to continue to be a desirable car for many years in the future. It is only going to get more rare as the years go by.
