1962 Chevrolet Corvette
Used 1962 Chevrolet Corvette 427
1962 "Fuelie" Corvette roadster 2014 NCRS "Top Flight" car as judged at NCRS Spring Meet Crystal River FL. in May 2014. 327360 horsepower solid lifter fuel injected high rpm tachometer close ratio T-10 4-spd Roman redred interior white soft top matching red hard top Wonderbar radio. Very fresh and very desirable last year C1 "Fuelie" 'Vette. Correct in every sense of the word. This '62 starts easily and settles into a healthy idle. Not driven since restoration. Odometer reads just 31404.9 mis which are assumed to be original as the odometer was not zero'd after restoration. New for Chevrolet in 1962 was the 327-cubic inch V-8 which replaced the venerable 283 in all Corvettes. With optional fuel injection and solid lifters up to 360 horsepower was on tap offering proof that the horsepower race of the 60s was well on its way. Corvettes base price topped $4000 for the first time and gone was the contrasting paint color in the body side coves. Surprisingly the car weighed the same in 1962 as it did in 1953 despite being fitted with more equipment and structural reinforcements to improve rigidity. This was done by eliminating the unnecessary bulk in the layers of the fiberglass skin in what would become the final version of the first-generation Corvette. At the rear the 1962 styling mirrored that introduced on the 1961 model which foreshadowed the upcoming 1963 Sting Ray yet-to-be introduced. The 1962 Corvettes were the first to come with rocker moldings which were made from one-piece stamped aluminum and featured horizontal ribs and bright anodizing. Interestingly up until about serial number 6000 they were unpainted while later models had flat black paint between those ribs.If you ever wanted to own a brand new '62 fuel-injected Corvette then here is your opportunity.
