It is a Great Investment As Well as hitting the road with the utmost confidence!!

If you are keeping up with these 62’s, you know a few important key points… They are Extremely Popular, Very Collectable, Hard to Find as solid as this car is, looks great and everybody envies their owners! Keep in mind, I am referring to a very nicely constructed build that will be bought for a fraction of what the purchase and restoration cost was.

I love the sound of this car and would not be afraid to take it anywhere! Just slide in and go...it’s that simple. This is a car for many levels of competition, power-tours, or just simple family fun at the local shows or cruise-ins. A BIGGER FISH in any-size pond comes with the ownership of this machine.

This 62’ has 1,500 tested miles… It has been an Oklahoma car most all of its life before being shipped to Tennessee where it was restored by a gentleman that owned it 10 years and worked on it for 6 of those years. It was fairly well taken care of prior to its extensive restoration. The car has been finished about 4 years and includes but not limited to New floor pans, trunk pans, gas tank rockers, inner fender wells, some stainless and most all chrome that was available for 62’s were replaced and the balance polished out. New Performance suspension front and back, new engine & transmission, new wheels / tires, new performance disc brakes fronts and drum brakes on the rear, new interior, stereo, etc.…

The body is fantastic with no known rust anywhere and very solid throughout… it took several years to build this car (has a great story) and the Craftsmanship really shows… It all works like it should, drives like you dream about a nice cruiser should and is a go anywhere at any time car by just getting in and hitting the key.

Things work as they should including but not limited to Headlights / Taillights, Signals, Most all factory Dash Gauges but does have added aftermarket gauges that are accurate, Heat, Cold A/C, Speedometer (intermittingly), Wipers, Horn, Interior Lights, Nice shifting 4-Speed, etc.… The Car also comes with extensive folders of receipts and component manuals, mechanics manuals, wiring diagrams used in this build. It also comes with a nice car cover.

Is this car Perfect? No and none of them are… that said, The only area/s I can really think to pick would be the gauges… the factory temp is disconnected (Aftermarket Temp, Oil & Volts), the clock does not work, the speedo works intermittingly. The inside of the vent window frames have some pitting but you don’t see it unless you are looking for it.

Why am I selling it? Space, space, space… I am moving and have a significantly reduced amount of space until I get my new garage built.

I reserve the right to end this ad early due to having it for sale locally...
