"If the 1961 Corvette was good, the 1962 Corvette was even better. With still more power and even cleaner looks, it ranks as perhaps the most desirable Corvette between 1957 and 1963. The car's base price broke the $4,000 barrier for the first time, at $4,038. A heater was finally made standard, but it could be deleted if so desired. The 1962 looked cleaner than the '61, with the subtraction of some chrome and the deletion of the two-tone paint option. This also marked the last of the straight-axle Corvette, and was now offered with a 327ci small block V8. The most desired option was the 327 V8 “fuelie” rated at 360 hp."
