Title Status --
Exterior Color Raven Black
Interior Color Black


54,000 mile survivor loaded with options and eye appeal! A factory big block, 4-speed and air conditioning in a convertible is ultra rare. Not to mention the power steering, brakes, top, windows and seat. Or how about wire hubcaps with spinners, stainless skirts, dual antenna, dual spotlights, fog lights, bucket seats and console and more. If that isn't enough how about a factory black car with white top and white wall tires. If you want more then that, I'm sorry I cant help you.

EXTERIOR: Factory Raven black code A. Body appears to be really solid. Look down either side, both are laser straight. It has had only a 1 time exterior repaint and that was over 25 years ago. The jambs are still nice original black paint. The paint is glossy and looks sexy. Is it perfect? No. The top is bright white, in great shape. Overall the moldings and chrome are bright and straight. Anodized taillights, tailpanel are real nice. The stainless skirts are polished like a mirror.

INTERIOR: Mostly original interior in very good shape. We replaced the carpet and repaired driver seat. Cushions are still firm. Has bucket seats with full console. The 4-speed still has original reverse lock out shifter. The top and windows are easy to put down, they are power! Rare power seat too. It has emergency brake flasher, padded dash and something I never knew existed back then- a Mirror-matic. The rear view mirror dims using built in vacuum tube, very cool. I honestly dont know if it works but still very cool.

ENGINE COMPARTMENT: Very complete and original. We did clean it and neatly freshened some of the paint. The 390 big block runs great.

TRUNK COMPARTMENT: Has original plaid mat, side filler panels, jack and spare. Has radial white wall tire.

UNDERSIDE: The car is on the lift, I'm underneath it as I write this. It looks solid and original. I can't find any patches. It appears to be original and in proper order, nothing is hokey. The power steering ram looks more recent, new mufflers, fuel tank and sending unit.

This car is from a 30 car collection, he owned it over 25 years! Nice survivor condition. It has a lot to offer, the combination of a big block with a 4-speed and air conditioning is rare in any car. In a convertible from 1962 is extremely rare. Now add all the other options and great colors this car is something special!

I, Jay Grams, take pride in personally writing the descriptions for virtually every car for about the last 30 years now. A significant amount of effort goes into fact checking. What I am offering is my professional impression of the vehicle.

Our salesmen are happy to assist with descriptions and making sure your questions are answered. One great suggestion is letting us do a walk around video that explains the car's condition in detail.

Don't be intimidated, contact sales now for a no pressure, no hassle experience!
