For Sale: 1962 Chevrolet Corvette in Mesa, Arizona

Vehicle Description

This 1962 Chevrolet Corvette Restomod was built to be sleeker, more comfortable, and all-out powerful. So check out every detail, including the supercharged LSA motor, modern A/C interior, fully independent suspension, and all the other elements that tell you this is the perfect mix of award-winner and back-road burner.


With a total restoration/transformation finished less than 900 miles ago, this car doesn't try for a moment to hide its uniqueness. The black is a high-gloss finish, and it loves to announce this is a custom car by the hint of burgundy metallic flake that gives it a unique radiance. This final-year first-generation Corvette was the right one to receive this speedy makeover. After all, the body retains the iconic design lines that made the Corvette America's sports car. But the '62 car evolved with a less fussy front end, sporty ducktail rear, and a wide grille that looks like it wants to inhale lesser sports cars. Like any good 1960s machine there was plenty of brightwork. Everything from the intricate form-fitting split bumpers, to the delicate trim that runs the full length of the front fender - it all has the mirror-like quality of serious investment. While those all tell you this is a great classic, the polished Grand Sport style 18-inch wheels, crystal clear headlights, and quad exhaust tips all announce this is a specially built machine. But we didn't have to tell you about any of that, because the hood already gives you a window into the soul of this beastly restomod (more in that in a moment.)


The black hardtop gives this the profile of a sleek coupe, but really, this one was made for top-off enjoyment. After all, there's just something special about the combination of a sleek black on the outside and an aggressive red on the inside. So we know this one will get your heart racing every time you approach it with the top down. This is the right look for the classic C1, but you'll notice the richer leather of the seats, the high gloss paint across the lower dash, and the thick pile of the carpeting. So it's exactly what you want in a restomod: a vintage feeling with a finer execution. More than just look fantastic, there are plenty of great modern upgrades like the retro-style AM/FM stereo, power windows, full Dakota Digital gauge package, and a modern leather-wrapped sports steering wheel made to look like the classic C1 unit. And the boost gauge at the base of the center stack is a sure sign of something special. Best of all, there's ice-cold modern R134a air conditioning, so you can stay cool while looking cool with the top down all summer long.


While the hood is specially done to give everyone a preview of this car's powerhouse, we know you won't be able to resist lifting the hood and showing off the full engine bay. It's the perfect mix of style and substance with the tidy red and black presentation that makes this car look like they couldn't fit any more power under the hood. It's a fuel-injected 6.2-liter Supercharged LSA motor. These are known for delivering 550+ horsepower, and doing it with the kind of ease of an everyday driver. It was installed correctly, right down to an aluminum radiator w/electric fan. We even have about $10k in receipts invested since 2020 for detailed maintenance items. Handling all this extra power is GM's stout 4L65E four-speed automatic transmission w/overdrive. Out on the road, this handles like no C1 that you know. It's a fresh boxed steel chassis with a fresh C4-style fully independent suspension. So it's strong and nimble. Plus, the power steering, four-wheel power disc brakes, and Michelin Pilot sport tires give this first-generation car some very modern moves.


There is a different caliber of custom car. It's the kind where every inch has been detailed to be equal parts amazing driver and award winner. This is obviously that kind of upper-echelon machine. It usually takes a lifetime to get a car looking like this, but if you're lucky enough, the ultimate Corvette could be yours right now. Call today!!!
