SLICK C1 W/ A 350 V8, MUNCIE 4-SPEED, FCTRY COLOR COMBO, MAINT RCRDS. DRIVES GR8

This 1962 Chevrolet Corvette Convertible is the last year for the first-generation, but there are plenty more reasons why this checks off all the right boxes for both a collectible and driver. This comes with upgraded V8 power, the choice of also having the stock motor, both tops, four-on-the-floor, and an outstanding color combo.

The last year of the first generation embodies what we really wanted from the Corvette right from the beginning. It was a sleeker machine than the first few years, including the smooth rear that features the now-famous quad tail lights. And the wide quad headlights and wraparound bumpers give this a more imposing face without losing the overall svelte lines. It's a true icon, and so it's great to see it presented correctly, right down to the intricate wheel covers. And we especially love that this was born an Ermine White car. That was the only color for the first year in 1953, and so this final first-gen feels like a correct set of bookends. This is a very complete car that also currently doesn't make you nervous about enjoying it out on the road. So you may add some polish or weather-stripping before some NCRS events, but most of us are just impressed ... Please ask for the full description.

Description

SLICK C1 W/ A 350 V8, MUNCIE 4-SPEED, FCTRY COLOR COMBO, MAINT RCRDS. DRIVES GR8

This 1962 Chevrolet Corvette Convertible is the last year for the first-generation, but there are plenty more reasons why this checks off all the right boxes for both a collectible and driver. This comes with upgraded V8 power, the choice of also having the stock motor, both tops, four-on-the-floor, and an outstanding color combo.

The last year of the first generation embodies what we really wanted from the Corvette right from the beginning. It was a sleeker machine than the first few years, including the smooth rear that features the now-famous quad tail lights. And the wide quad headlights and wraparound bumpers give this a more imposing face without losing the overall svelte lines. It's a true icon, and so it's great to see it presented correctly, right down to the intricate wheel covers. And we especially love that this was born an Ermine White car. That was the only color for the first year in 1953, and so this final first-gen feels like a correct set of bookends. This is a very complete car that also currently doesn't make you nervous about enjoying it out on the road. So you may add some polish or weather-stripping before some NCRS events, but most of us are just impressed by such a straight and detailed overall presentation.

The factory-correct red interior completes the look of a first-year car, and more than just history, there's something particularly striking about this color combo. So to have the seats, carpeting, and door panels all looking so fresh really gives this a nice radiance. Trunks would disappear after 1962 for nearly 35 years, and so you this one also looks fresh so you can show it off with pride. Plus, you'll also want to drive it with the classic grippy steering wheel, robust floor shifter, and a full set of gauges, including the important tach front-and-center. You'll appreciate little details, like how '62 was the first year for standard seatbelts. And because this one wants to be a better driver's machine, the upgraded AM/FM digital tuner w/cassette gives you better driving music. Another great thing about a final-year C1 is that they gave you proper roll-up windows. So it's much easier to fully utilize the folding soft top when you're caught out in the rain. And this one even comes with the color-matched hardtop, too, for any time you want a more coupe-like profile.

The engine bay has a very nice presentation where everything looks well-done and it has proudly been upgraded. You can see it in the right supporting pieces, like the Mallory electronic distributor, an alternator, steel braided cooling lines, upgraded aluminum radiator w/electric fan. At the center is a 350 cubic-inch. It's a larger displacement than what you got in 1962. It also inhales deeper with a Holley four-barrel carburetor, and it exhales with added power and authority from Hooker long tube headers feeding the dual exhaust. It's a nice upgraded power package, but purists will also be happy to know that a stock spec motor is also available with the sale. And what really makes this a great driver is that you are in complete control of the upgraded power package with a Muncie M20 four-speed manual transmission.

The sale comes complete with maintenance records and the owner's manual. This is a great icon that was built to be enjoyed to the fullest. So don't miss out, call today!
