The year 1962 was the final year for the first generation of
Chevrolet's legendary Corvette, and this fuel injected example
pictured here represents the high water mark of power and
performance. Underneath the fiberglass hood is a 327CI fuel
injected solid lifter V-8 with a 11.25:1 compression ratio belting
out an astonishing 360hp!! That well exceeds the one horsepower per
cubic inch mark and without any type of forced induction. The fuel
injection unit gives this classic Corvette an easy start and
instantaneous throttle response that was unheard of in its day. The
transmission is a close ration T-10 4-speed manual and feeds power
back to the 3.70 rear axle with positraction. Finished in gorgeous
Roman Red with matching red hardtop and red interior, this Corvette
was the end all be all of sports car performance in the early
1960s. The thin whitewall tires are period correct and the full
size polished wheel covers with spinners are at once sporty and add
an air of class. All chrome and rubbers are in excellent condition
and the fine mesh grille shows no damage. Inside you will find two
sporty vinyl covered buckets, wall to wall carpeting with bonded
edges, AM radio, full instrumentation, and a passenger side grab
handle for when things get exciting. Shut the door with a nice
click and you are ensconced in a comfortable and quiet cabin with
the hardtop on, or remove it for open air enjoyment. The white
vinyl convertible top is also present and in excellent condition.
This car is a four time NCRS top flight award winner and is
believed to have been the personal car of NCRS president Tim McKeon
who did the a frame off restoration in the late 90s. The car has
been lovingly cared for, shown, and rarely driven since
restoration. A full scrap book with restoration documentation,
