So, what was considered the “ultimate” street Corvette back in ’62? Opinions may vary, but we think the general consensus would be the example featured right here.
The ’62 model was a milestone for Corvette. After nine years and many changes, production of the first generation was coming to an end. And the powers that be in St. Louis wanted the last year of the C1 to be the best year. Although the basic body design was a carry-over from the previous year, there were some distinct changes. Most notably the removal of the stainless trim around the coves in the doors. And because the trim was gone, so was the option of painting the coves a contrasting color. in its absence was a ribbed rocker panel molding for an overall, less-busy look. And under the hood, big changes were happening. And by big, we mean cubic inches! The 283ci small block was expanded to 327ci. That of course added additional hp and torque. And in the case of the fuel injected ’62, power went from 315 to 360! The ’62 was indeed the best of the breed!
We’ve owned this awesome ’62 over the decades and we’re always thrilled to have it back! Not only is it beautifully and correctly frame off restored, it also has the rare distinction of having it’s original fuel injected engine still between its front fenders! Options include; Wonder Bar radio, off road exhaust, both hard and soft tops, Posi read end. Also included are receipts, photos of the restoration, Top Flight Award and more!
