For sale in our Chicago showroom is this beautiful 1962 Chevrolet Corvette. 1962, being the last year of the C2 generation, has all of the improvements learned throughout the generation. Powered by the numbers-matching 327 cubic inch small block V8, this is a peppy little sports car. With drivability being an important factor, the 4-speed manual was replaced with a more highway-friendly Tremec 5-speed manual. The improvements were threefold; the new transmission shifts significantly smoother than the archaic 4-speed, acceleration is improved due to the steeper gearing, and the overdrive 5th gear allows for much better gas mileage and highway cruising. Parked on all 4 corners are a set of American Racing chrome rims, 14"s up front with 15"s out back, which shine just as bright as the Roman Red paint. Both the hard top and soft top are in great condition, and the glass is in great shape with no cracks or chips. The black vinyl interior shows great, with no tears, split seams, or discoloration. Fire up this sporty small block, slip the transmission into first, and rumble around with a barrage of "thumbs-up" and waves from other motorists. With a classic style, all the right colors, and a look that screams "Hot Wheels," this is one slick Corvette. Options include: AM/FM/CD Player, Manual Convertible Top, Seat Belts, Vinyl Interior, Radial Tires, and Alloy Wheels. For more information, contact our Chicago Showroom at (708) 444-4488 or Chicago@GatewayClassicCars.com.
