This desirable 1962 Chevrolet Corvette is on display now in the
Maxmotive Pittsburgh Corvette Corner. The original, numbers
matching 340 horsepower 327 powers this highly collectable example.
1962 was the first year for the 327 small block, still considered
one of the greatest engines of all time. The 340 horsepower version
was the top option. The transmission ranks right up there in the
hardware hall of fame, the mighty Borg-Warner T-10 4-speed manual
transmission - a gearbox so good it saw duty in performance cars
from Ford, Chrysler, and AMC as well as Chevrolet. Roman Red
exterior paint with a black interior is a very desirable
combination, and the correct factory look extends from the chrome
air cleaner to the spinner wheel covers with white line tires. 1962
was the last year for the C1, and thus the solid rear axle. It's
strength makes this a popular platform for drag racing. The driving
experience in a '62 Vette is like no other. In front of you is the
sweeping 160 mph speedometer, and a perfectly placed tach -- a dash
layout well ahead of its time. The optional "Wonderbar" radio was
the forerunner of today's seek and scan features. The sporty three
spoke steering wheel and dual cockpit design are exclusive to C1
Corvettes. The total mileage is believed to be 118182, but the car
was recently refreshed and is detailed throughout. If you've ever
driven a '62 Corvette, you know that young or old, enthusiast or
not, people will shout out compliments and generally make a fuss.
These cars have practically universal appeal. This outstanding 1962
Chevrolet Corvette is ready and waiting at Maxmotive. **********
