The 1962 model year was the last Corvette with a solid-rear-axle
suspension that was used from the beginning. With two new engines
it was also the quickest. Engine displacement increased with the
introduction of the 327 engine, but dual 4-barrel carburetor
engines were no longer available. Hydraulic valve lifters were used
in the base 250 hp and optional 300 hp engines, solid lifters in
the optional carbureted 340 hp and fuel-injected 360 hp versions.
Rocker panel trim was seen for the first time, exposed headlights
for the last, until 2005.
