SINISTER BLACK ON BLACK, #'S MATCHING 340HP 327, VERY NICE & MOSTLY ORIGINAL!
This 1962 Chevrolet Corvette is tired of talking about investments. Since when did America's first (and greatest) sports car become a garage queen? If you like to drive, forget looking for a perfect 'Vette, a car like this gorgeous triple black roadster is what you really want. Spin the tires, soak up the sun, and let the guys with the trailers worry about values. You'll be having too much fun to care anyway.
You've seen cars like this cruising down the road and the guy behind the wheel is always grinning like an escaped convict. You've wanted one for years, right? So here's a gorgeous black roadster that's turn-key and ready to rock. The paint looks fantastic but isn't so perfect you'll be afraid of the clouds in the sky, and you can definitely show up at the local cruise-in with this car and get a lot of respect. The last of the solid-axle Corvettes has a definite old-school charm to it, a remnant of the '50s with its wrap-around windshield and stylish side cove. It fits together extremely well with doors that thunk shut with a solid feeling, and with those blacked-out grilles, Chevy designers really tried to make the Corvette look aggressive rather than simply pretty. It was painted in 2004, and Corvette purists will be happy to note that you can still faintly see the bonding strips, which means original fiberglass lives underneath. All the chrome was restored with the rest of the car, so it still has a great shine and really dresses up the inky black paint.
The twin-cockpit design was one of the most endearing features of the early Corvette, with bucket seats that seem to merge into the bodywork and the "waterfall" between them to bring the exterior into the car. The seats have correct covers that were installed a few years ago, and today they show a comfortable, inviting look that means long cruises down your favorite road and evenings listening to the V8 rumble out back. The black steering wheel is a three-spoke unit that recalls sports cars from Europe and frames the domed instrument panel and tachometer. That chrome shifter manages the original 4-speed manual gearbox so this vintage 'Vette moves like a much younger piece and provides an involving experience. The original AM radio still works and lives right above the clock, which has been upgraded with quartz movement for reliability. And just in case the weather turns on you, there's also a black convertible top that's in great shape and the trunk is big enough to actually be useful on road trips.
The engine is the original, numbers-matching 327 cubic inch V8 rated at a stout 340 horsepower. With a stock look, it runs beautifully with upgrades specifically chosen to make it more user-friendly (the original parts are included with the car). Note the Edelbrock carb living under the stock air cleaner, plus an upgraded cooling fan, all working together to make it reliable and fun to drive. All the original chrome parts are there, the finned valve covers look gorgeous, and it even still runs the original generator. Underneath, the chassis is pretty stock, right down to the original-style exhaust system and factory rear end, and it's all quite tidy-looking so you won't have to worry when you're out cruising. Original steel wheels with hubcaps give it a period look and it's been fitted with recent 205/75/15 whitewall radials all around.
