1962 Chevrolet Corvette --This 1962 Chevrolet Corvette delivers a cool and classic red convertible that is a symbol of the open road. And with enhanced V8 power and four-on-the-floor, you really get to enjoy every trip to the fullest.
This is the final year for the first-generation Corvette that means you get an instant connection to the birth of arguably America's greatest road machine. It also means you benefit from a decade of evolution. So you still have some of the first-year silhouette, but now it evolved into the sleekest of the generation. The quad headlight front end has a commanding look, and the chrome bumper that seems to split the front is one of the most artful pieces on any Corvette. The ducktail rear established the now-iconic four taillight arrangement, and at the same time, it would be the last trunk on a Corvette for 35 years. So with all this history, it's great to have a convertible that is as vintage and complete as this one, right down to the wheel covers.
The newer black roof looks good against the dark red paint. And when you fold it down, the same color combo is seen inside. The red dash and hard tonneau that dips in-between the seats combine with the seats and door panels to give you a timeless color combo. Plus, the bucket seats and the clean dual cowl dash makes this car feel both roomy and personal. The steering wheel has that classic thin and grippy feeling that instantly connects you with the car, and the stick shift is your gateway to what's under the hood.
The 327 cubic-inch V8 is the proper displacement for a '62, and in total, the presentation has a high degree of originality. Still, you also instantly see a nice investment in performance. That's because this small block now inhales deeper with an Edelbrock four-barrel carburetor and Edelbrock and Edelbrock aluminum intake. Not only does this add power, but this kind of investment is also why this V8 fires up readily. The newer dual exhaust makes a sweet sound, and you're in full control of it all thanks to the four-speed manual transmission.
This last of the first-gen Corvettes is a true red-blooded American icon, and it even has extra pep in its step. So you know you want to grab this deal. Call today!!!
