About the First Generation Corvette:
The beautiful design of the 1962 Corvette showcased a few new firsts, and said goodbye to a few attributes that wouldn't return to Corvette models until decades later, if at all! The powerful 327ci V8 was introduced this year and would stay around for the next seven model years. The exterior chrome trim highlighting the side cove area disappeared leaving only color-matched paint, and a single louver as the new accent. This would be the final year for exposed front headlights, a solid rear axle, an external rear trunk, and the availability of a power top. Things were about to change for the next generation of Corvette, which is why the 1962 model remains one of the most coveted designs to have in collections around the world!

This is a fantastic 1962 Corvette example that has traveled only limited, fair weather miles since the completion of it's outstanding body-off-frame restoration. This particular example has also always remained in a climate-controlled environment when parked. Close examination will reveal excellent attention to detail to include proper GM hoses with tower clamps on the radiator hoses, pinch clamps on the heater hoses, proper Harrison aluminum radiator with correct part and date stampings, a stenciled chassis number, suspension and drive-train inspections markings, T3 headlamps, original spare tire, and even a date-coded trunk mat!
It remains remarkably correct, continues to run brilliantly, and should not be a disappointment to anyone who is lucky enough to see and enjoy it firsthand! The example seen here has a few paint imperfections supporting that it has been previously enjoyed but regardless,remains in overall excellent condition! A beautiful Corvette that represents 1 of only 4,412 examples built with the 327ci/340hp power plant in 1962! Finding a solid axle C1 with this sort of presentation is not easy to do!
