Roman Red w/Black interior, 327/340hp, 4-spd. transmission.
After a 9 year run and a number of distinct body redesigns, production of the first generation Corvette came to a close. Although there was an update to the body the previous year, the real news in ’62 was the increase in cubic inches! The 283ci small block was replaced with the 327ci small block. The dual quads were gone, but horsepower was up!
Since we opened for business almost 37 years ago, you would guess we have seen a lot of vintage Corvettes pass through our doors! So many in fact that we’ve sold a number of cars 2 . . . 3 . . . even 4 times or more! So it isn’t that unusual when we get one back to sell. And this ’62 is one example of that. We sold this one way back in ’01 and now it’s back. It’s been a local So. Cal. Corvette for many years and still looks great!
It’s optioned with a 327/340hp engine that has been rebuilt with a hydraulic cam. It’s very responsive with excellent power! The manual transmission shifts smoothly and the car stops straight. The older Roman Red paint looks great and the interior is in very nice shape.
This ’62 is a fantastic driver. Just get in, start ‘er up, drive down the road, have a blast!
