1962 Chevrolet Corvette Frame Off Numbers Matching Convertible
Why This Car Is Special
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 1962 Chevrolet Corvette we have here at Skyway Classics is a
frame off restored, Roman Red, with the 340 horse original numbers
matching engine, is a perfect example of the Top-Of-The-Line
Corvette for that year.

The big news for the 1962 Corvette was the introduction of the 327
cubic inch V-8 engine, one of the best engines ever made, in place
of the smaller 283 cubic inch engine. The 327 produced more
horsepower and torque that was far better than anything seen
Our Corvette has the factory numbers matching, Special High
Performance, 340 horsepower 327 cubic V8 engine that has been
rebuilt about 7,200 miles ago.
It retains the correct look with its carb, factory cast iron
exhaust manifolds, air cleaner, valve covers and sits in a restored
and very detailed engine compartment with all the factory
components looking like you just drove this Corvette off the
showroom floor and backed by a four-speed manual factory 4-speed
The restored red leather bucket seat interior is also just like a
time capsule with all the correct red leather bucket seats, red
seat belts, red steering wheel, red carpeting, red dash with all
working factory gauges and instrumentation, Wonder Bar radio, red
grab handle, rear view mirror, clock and radio, all in great
As stated earlier, this 1962 Corvette was a body off restoration in
2006, and according to the current owner, and was judged in 2021 by
NCRS judges, in the top 90% for Topflight NCRS quality.
In 1962, the Corvette underwent more than just a mechanical
overhaul as its styling was similar to previous years but the
chrome outlines around the body side coves were dropped and the
coves on ours are painted to match the rest of the Corvette.
The first thing you will notice on this Corvette is the beautiful
Roman Red gloss paint that was completed by Swedes Total Auto and
is super shiny with great body fitment over its sweet lines.
The white manual soft-top is on it and could be replaced if you
want with the new soft top that comes with the car, but either way,
nothing looks classier than a red/red Corvette with a white
Our 62 rides on painted steel wheels with the correct factory
chrome hubcaps and radial white wall tires wrapped around them for
the period correct look and stance.
The 1962 Corvette was the fastest and best handling Corvette made
to date and to some it was the pinnacle of Corvettes in that era
You must come see the Roman Red 1962 Chevrolet Corvette that was
frame off restored and has the red interior, 4-speed, and the 340
horse original numbers matching engine.
