1962 Chevrolet Corvette Convertible 2-DoorIdeal Classic Carsproudly presents this 1962 Corvette Roadster for sale. Chevrolet Corvette (C1) is the first generation of the now classic Corvette sports car introduced late in the 1953 model year and produced through 1962. It is commonly referred to as the "solid-axle" generation, as the independent rear suspension did not appear until the 1963 Stingray. In 1961, the rear of the car was completely redesigned with the addition of a "duck tail" with the now iconic four round lights. This tail light treatment would continue for all following model years of Corvettes. The most noticeable exterior changes for 1962 were the removal of the side cover chrome trim. Without the trim bright work, it was not possible to offer the coves in a contrasting color so for the first time since 1955 Corvettes were offered in solid colors only. A blacked-out grille and ribbed chrome rocker panel molding were new. The standard features now included an electric clock, dual exhaust, tachometer, heater and defroster, seat belts, outside rearview mirror and windshield washer. This was also the last year for features like the wrap around windshield, convertible-only body style, trunk lid and exposed headlamps that did not reappear for many decades. The most significant new feature was the option Code 582 Fuel-Injected 327 version producing 360 bhp making it the fastest of the C1 generation. This high performance engine was only ordered on 1918 Vettes so made these cars very rare and collectible. '62 Chevrolet advertisements declared statements like 'Finest, Fiercest Yet'. This confirmed what many Corvette enthusiasts believed that one of the best parts of the C1 Corvette is its ability to display a wide range of personalities without ever straying from its performance roots. From refined to sinister, a change of color is all it takes to show these cars in a new light. This 1962 Corvette definitely displays the mean and nasty side of sinister thanks to the bold Roman Red exterior with some serious firepower underneath that fiberglass. This Vette was an early October '61 production from GM's St. Louis line. It is the beneficiary of a very well done restoration and presents with great authenticity and feels every bit as good as it looks on the road.If you wanted the top option Corvette, the new-for-'62 L84 327ci 360hp engine was the way to go. Of course, the main attraction of the engine bay is the Rochester mechanical fuel injection setup. This car is powered by a numbers matching engine and 4-speed manual transmission. The finned valve covers wear their age well and, at the back, the chrome ignition shielding adds some factory flash to the engine compartment. This Vettewould definitely make a wonderful addition to anyones collection! Corvette boasted in their advertisements that 'Fuel Injection V8 and a four-speed box isn't a drive at all, it's an emotional experience!' True and this Roman Red Corvette Roadster with the 327/360HP will ensure driver and passenger excitement travelling down any style of road.
