1962 Chevrolet Corvette

They say the last is of something is often times the best. In the case of the first generation Corvette, it had gone through many changes and refinements during its 10 years of production. Three distinct body styles, the development of the small block V8, the Powerglide 2-spd. automatic transmission giving way to the 4-spd. manual, the introduction of fuel injection and many other subtle and not so subtle improvements to America’s Sports Car. But, after a decade, the engineers and designers had taken the platform about as far as they could. So, it was determined that ’62 would be the final year for the C1. And to top off the end of production, there were some big changes. The most significant was the increase in engine size from 283ci to 327ci. With that, naturally came an increase in horsepower. The dual quad carb set ups from the past were gone, but fuel injection was still alive and well! On the outside, the body was basically the same as the previous year, but less adorned. Gone were the stainless trim surrounding the “coves”. And with it, the contrasting color option. In their place was a ribbed rocker panel molding. Overall, the design was cleaner, and a bit more modern looking. This ’62 in brilliant Roman Red w/matching interior was frame-on restored a number of years ago, but still shows very well. It features a matching #’s 327/340hp engine, backed by a 4-spd. transmission. It’s basically stock with the exception of front disc brakes and a modern master cylinder. It’s a very nice driver, mechanically sound and reliable.
