IMPORTANT DETAILS: Of all 14,531 Corvettes produced for 1962, only 13% were ordered with the option code #582 “Fuel Injection.”

You are looking at what appears to be a very early production ex-fuel injected 1962 Corvette.  The VIN production sequence shows number 647. That is a September 1961 assembly date.

Looking at available 1962 Corvette production data it shows only 384 new model year Corvettes were produced in September 1961. Considering its early production number this 1962 Corvette appears to be one of the first “Fuelies” produced for that model year.  

Is this ’62 Vette historically significant?  We’ll let you ponder that question.

The current owner purchased this Vette in 1997.  It is located in MICHIGAN.

SPECIFICATIONS as reported by the owner: This 1962 Corvette has other nice features such as:  Hardtop and new tan soft top. AM radio currently replaced by an aftermarket unit. Four speed transmission. Positraction axle. The 327 c.i. engine is a replacement. The 16” BFG radial tires have a lot of tread remaining.

The extra parts that come with this 1962 Corvette include a modified Rochester Fuel Injection unit #7017360 with matching intake manifold. An early tach drive distributor.  Distributor shield (not for F.I.).  Very nice original set of factory correct 4 small hub caps.

CONDITION RATING: The owner rates the overall cosmetic condition of his Corvette as good driver quality (rating it in the 5 to 6 range). The paint is showing its age. The chrome and stainless are in good condition as is the glass. The interior appears original and in need of some restoration. The undercarriage is solid and has never been restored. The body panels appear to be factory original.

The owner reports the Corvette runs strong and tracks straight down the highway. The Corvette receives annual maintenance (lube, oil, filter) and is driven very few miles. The fuel tank and sending unit have also been replaced.

TRANSPORTED TO YOUR LOCATION: No matter where you live, delivery can be arranged anywhere worldwide at a reasonable cost. I am very experienced working with international Corvette enthusiasts and welcome all inquiries.
