Vehicle Description

1962 Chevrolet Corvette

Car History

The 1962 model year ended up being the last model of that era before the much talked about second-generation Corvette was to debut in 1963. In the last ten years, with brilliant engineers and designers like Edward Cole, Zora Arkus-Duntov and Bill Mitchell, the 1962 C1 Corvette had become an American Sports Car Classic.

The matching engine numbers 1962 Chevrolet Corvette we have here at Adventure Classics is a perfect example of the Top-Of-The-Line Corvette for that year as it is a stunning combination of maroon on black with a great white convertible top, as well as the original RE code 327 cubic inch 340 horsepower engine!

Engine & Drivetrain

The big news for the 1962 Corvette was the introduction of the 327 cubic inch V-8 engine (one of the best engines made by any auto maker that year) in place of the smaller 283 cubic inch engine. Ours has the correct #3782870 327 cubic inch engine with the factory stamping on the front engine pad showing this Corvette's Vin number and the original RE code which verifies it to be the 327 cubic inch 340 horsepower engine that it came with!

That engine produced more horsepower and torque and was far better than anything seen prior with either a carburetor or fuel injection.

On our 327 small block Chevy engine looks like it has most of the factory components such as the chrome open-element air cleaner, Corvette script valve covers, aluminum intake, four-barrel carb with the heated choke going into the factory cast-iron exhaust headers, and sits in the factory looking engine compartment and backed by a four-speed manual optional transmission.

Interior

The black leather twin bucket seat interior is also just like a time capsule with all the correct trim, chrome, carpet, sport steering wheel, gauges, and dash looking like they should.

The door panels, grab handle, rear view mirror, dash with all the factory gauges, clock and radio, floor mats, and seatbelts, are also in great shape.

Exterior

The 1962 Corvette underwent a nice paint job of maroon that shows its styling and accented by the chrome front and rear bumpers, great front chrome grill, side lower trim, iconic side coves, and super white convertible top.

There is no more classic look in a 1962 Corvette than a shiny paint job with whitewall tires and shiny chrome factory Chevrolet hubcaps with spinners.

Conclusion

The 1962 Corvette was the fastest and best handling Corvette made to date and to some was the pinnacle of Corvettes in that era and beyond.

This C1 we have here at Adventure Classics is your chance to buy a rare Corvette you can drive and enjoy today that has that original 340 horse engine and 4-speed.
