1962 Chevrolet Corvette
I have owned this Corvette for about 11 years and I have really enjoyed it. It rides beautifully and is incredibly reliable. We enjoy taking it to local and regional cars shows when the weather is nice and it is always a standout entry winning awards very frequently. The color is Honduras Maroon (only about 1700 made in this color). The interior seats were replaced a few years ago as was the instrument cluster (NOS) and all of the gauge faces. The Wonderbar radio is original but has been rebuilt to include digital circuitry and AM/FM capability. New speakers were added at the same time. The convertible top is black and has one small tear but the frame is in great condition and the mechanism works well. I have the original color matched hardtop for the car and it is in beautiful condition. These hardtops (if you can find them!) sell in excess of $7000.00. The hard top has its one storage cart and dust cover which will go with the car. About two years ago I had a full custom warning harness installed made by Lectric Limited....they are the gold standard in custom wiring harnesses. I have replaced the original Harrison radiator with a custom Be Cool aluminum radiator which assures that the engine runs cool and doesn't overheat, even in the warmest temperatures. I do however have the original Harrison radiator and it will go with the car. A few years ago, I found some original spinner hub caps for the car and I installed Coker radials in the original 1 1/4" whitewall style. Everything I have done with my car has been to keep it as original as possible and as reliable as possible because I honestly like driving it, not worrying about it. I have lots of memorabilia with this car (models, manuals, etc) as well as a three ring binder with all of the service records and receipts for special upgrades and equipment purchased and installed over the last 11 years. This car is a real gem and the new owner is really going to not only get a classic, but a great running one as well!!
