For Sale: 1962 Chevrolet Corvette in Ft Worth, Texas

Vehicle Description

This 1962 Chevrolet Corvette is tired of talking about blue-chip investments. Since when did America's first (and greatest) sports car become a garage queen that never sees the road? If you like to drive, forget looking for a perfect 'Vette, a car like this gorgeous white-on-black roadster is what you really want. Spin the tires, soak up the sun, and let the guys with the trailers worry about long-play values. You'll be having too much fun to care anyway.

You've seen cars like this cruising down the road and the guy behind the wheel is always grinning like an escaped convict. You've wanted one for years, right? So here's a classic Ermine White roadster that's turn-key and ready to rock. The paint looks fantastic but isn't so perfect you'll be afraid of the clouds in the sky, and you can definitely show up at the local cruise-in with this car and get a lot of respect. The last of the solid-axle Corvettes has a definite old-school charm to it, a remnant of the '50s with its wrap-around windshield and stylish side cove. It fits together extremely well with doors that thunk shut with a solid feeling, and with those blacked-out grilles up front, Chevy designers really tried to make the Corvette look aggressive rather than simply pretty. All the chrome was restored/replaced with the rest of the car, so it has a great shine and really dresses up the relatively subtle white paint.

The twin-cockpit design was one of the most endearing features of the early Corvette, with bucket seats that seem to merge into the bodywork and the "waterfall" between them to bring the exterior into the car. The black seats have covers that were installed a few years ago, and today they show a comfortable, inviting look that means long cruises down your favorite road and evenings listening to the V8 rumble out back. The big three-spoke wheel still frames the factory gauges, and the black dash looks great up against the bright work that it houses. And why would you own a Corvette with anything but a manual transmission? The 4-speed manual in the center consolette sports a white cue ball knob and racks through the gears with precision. The original AM radio nestles into the dash, making this a car that simply hasn't forgotten its roots. This car also includes a relatively rare removable hardtop that's been painted in matching white, but for a quick transformation, the black vinyl convertible roof is new and in fantastic shape.

The engine is a 327 cubic inch Chevy that fits in there like it was designed that way, which shouldn't be a surprise because it's a block from 1964. With a relatively stock look, it runs beautifully with upgrades specifically chosen to make it more user-friendly. Note the Carter carb, the double hump heads, and a new water pump, all working together to make it reliable and fun to drive. Stock manifolds were used to help with the disguise and a few chrome dress-up pieces make it look flashy under the hood. Underneath, the chassis is in great shape, featuring a new Flowmaster dual exhaust system that produces a mellow baritone rumble, fresh Bilstein shocks, leaf springs, and new or rebuilt brakes all around. It's not sophisticated, but it works rather well and will be entertaining to drive for years to come. American Racing Torque Thrust wheels look downright sinister and wear brand new 235/75/15 BFGoodrich T/A radials at all four corners.

This awesome '62 Corvette says, "Let's rock!". And it does it in style. So, what are you waiting for? Call today!
