Contact us about this corvette!
THE VETTE NET.com is a nationwide Corvette brokerage network and a proud Lifetime Business Member of the National Corvette Museum. We are Corvette enthusiasts and owners like you. So, you will understand our excitement about this classic 1962 Corvette! As you know, this was the last year for solid axle Corvettes and exposed headlights. While it is not a show car, this 1962 Corvette is a nice driver that can give you many years of driving pleasure.
The black interior compliments the very nice Roman Red paint. The white soft top looks good and the dash pad and instrument panel are in very good condition. The rest of the interior and the chrome could benefit from some restoration but that can be done later. Take the time to drive and enjoy the Vette first.
The 327ci engine is the same that was in the Corvette when purchased by its current owner about fourteen years ago. The engine runs strong and the exhaust note has the sound of performance. A previous owner has rebuilt the engine.
The 6500rpm redline on this Corvette’s tach is correct for a 340hp engine option. The engine pad has been milled and the important numbers have been mostly erased. Upon very close inspection of the pad, you can see some of the engine assembly date numbers and part of the suffix. Without the use of a strong magnifier or other means, it is difficult to determine if the suffix is the correct RE code for a 340 horsepower engine. The block casting date is J101 or October 10, 1961. That would be correct according to NCRS guidelines for a 1962 Corvette with a VIN 20867S102079.
This 1962 Corvette has a 4-speed transmission, positraction, and an AM signal seeking radio. It certainly is a nice driver representing the end of the C1 era. If you want to experience some Corvette nostalgia in your life, here is your opportunity. Don’t procrastinate.
