THIS 1962 CORVETTE IS IN AMAZING CONDITION. THIS VERY ATTRACTIVE VINTAGE AMERICAN SPORTS CAR RUNS AND DRIVES ALMOST DAILY!

The chrome is in good condition and appears to be straight and true. The entire interior upholstery seems to in excellent condition, less the dash pad that has cracks behind the registration sticker and needs replacement (not easily noticeable). The owner deviated very slightly from exact stock. The Corvette radio has been replaced to a more modern FM style, but could easily be replaced if desired. The tach and clock do not work. No attempt has been made to get them working. The clock has been priced as a rebuild for $100.00. The mirrors need replacement as the chrome is in need of replacement and the new mirrors are included but not installed as of yet. The exterior is nothing less than SEXY! From ten feet she is a ten. The vehicle shows signs of being repainted. The Roman Red paint is in excellent shape. There are what appear to be a scratch above the gas cap. Some paint cracking by the antenna (not stress on the fiber glass), I have found to be common with corvettes. There is a chip by the front emblem and two small touch ups within the front emblem. You really need to be close to see it. The convertible top is excellent, having not been used or even up since the car has been in NY. It has only seen excellent weather. It may need some adjustment as it has not been stretched in some time. Some weather stripping needs replacement. The entire exterior is a looker, see the pictures! Everything under the hood looks like new. Finned aluminum valve covers are on the engine because the previous owner liked the look. The engine may not be number matching, but have been told it is of the period. We have priced the correct completely stock engine and date code and is available in NJ, at a reasonable price. A new carburetor has been installed. Performance air cleaner and intake manifold. We were told that the engine has had some work to increase performance. Certainly noticeable by the pickup. I have been told while its recent service that it has a slight compression issue in one cylinder. It has not affected the performance to my notice. It may be as simple as a valve seat or gasket. The car has been driven without any instances. The transmission has just been rebuilt. The car has a competition clutch and scatter shield. It has a Muncie transmission and shift kit. The exhaust is new and has that corvette rumble! The under carriage is beyond remarkable, new bushings and cables! The hood release cables are sticky and need to be lubed.

All in All I have enjoyed the car but don’t have the time in my life for all the time a beautiful car like this deserves. (Happy wife, Happy life)

Note that the odometer reading listed above is not the total mileage.

I was told the vehicle has 40k miles. It looks it!

Insured at $65,000 as priced by Hagerty Insurance.

THE BOTTOM LINE IS THAT THIS IS AN ABSOLUTELY BEAUTIFUL 1962 CORVETTE, AN EYE CATCHER. YOU CAN’T GET OUT OF THE VEHICLE WITHOUT PEOPLE COMING OVER TO COMPLIMENT YOU ON THE CAR!
