1962 Chevrolet Corvette
327V8, 4-SPD TRANS, RED ON RED, ICONIC C1 CORVETTE, READY TO CRUISE!
HIGHLIGHTS: Gorgeous red on red! Classic C1 Corvette! 4-speed and 327 V8! High-quality classic driver!
BODY OVERVIEW: The body is clean and straight, and really looks fantastic. Imperfections are at a minimum, even though this car does appear to be an older restoration. The underside is very clean, and all of the metal appears to be very solid.
PAINT CONDITION OVERVIEW: As mentioned above, this 1962 Corvette does appear to be an older restoration. However, the red paint still has a brilliant shine to it and ensures this car will garner attention anywhere you take it! While there are some minor signs of age and use, the paint is in good condition and should hold up for years to come.
INTERIOR CONDITION OVERVIEW: Much like the exterior, the interior is in great condition showing minor signs of wear and age. The red vinyl is a classic choice for this C1 Corvette, accented and set off by the white vinyl convertible top. Besides, how can you not love that classic C1 steering wheel/gauge cluster combo?
MECHANICAL OVERVIEW: Under the hood is a period-correct 1962 4-bbl, manual transmission 327.
The 327V8 runs great and fires right off with a twist of the key. It jumps right into a smooth idle, and the exhaust sounds great! It is not too loud, but more of a factory-style rumble. The transmission shifts smoothly and the reverse lockout works properly. This car is a blast to drive!
WHAT YOU'LL LOVE ABOUT THIS CAR: The great condition plus the striking red on red!
WHAT YOU MIGHT HATE ABOUT THIS CAR: If you don't like red, you may want to consider a different vehicle.
DOES IT NEED ANYTHING? Being an older restoration, this Corvette will need a few items addressed. The radio, emergency brake, and heater are not currently operational. The tires have great tread and no leaks, but they are showing signs of tread separation on the inside sidewall and could stand to be replaced if the next buyer intends to drive this car regularly.
WHAT BUYER IS LOOKING FOR THIS CAR? Anyone looking for an affordable, eye-catching, iconic C1 Corvette should be considering this one!
