LMC is very proud to offer for sale this 1962 Chevrolet Corvette
Chevrolet Corvette (C1) is the first generation of the now classic Corvette sports car introduced late in the 1953 model year and produced through 1962. It is commonly referred to as the "solid-axle" generation, as the independent rear suspension did not appear until the 1963 Sting Ray. In 1961, the rear of the car was completely redesigned with the addition of a "duck tail" with the now iconic four round lights. This tail light treatment would continue for all following model years of Corvettes. The most noticeable exterior changes for 1962 were the removal of the side cover chrome trim. Without the trim bright work, it was not possible to offer the coves in a contrasting color so for the first time since 1955 Corvettes were offered in solid colors only. A blacked-out grille and ribbed chrome rocker panel molding were new. The standard features now included an electric clock, dual exhaust, tachometer, heater and defroster, seat belts, outside rear-view mirror and windshield washer. This was also the last year for features like the wrap around windshield, convertible-only body style, trunk lid and exposed headlamps that did not reappear for many decades.
This beautiful restored 1962 Corvette is finished in a distinctive and atractive Honduras Maroon with black interior and white convertible top. It is powered by a 327ci engine with the high horse aluminum Corvette script valve covers backed by a four-speed manual transmission. This beautiful C1 Corvette has been frame on restored and is ready to be driven and enjoyed for years to come. The two black vinyl bucket seats are in excellent shape and really stand out thanks to chrome trim that separates the body from the seats. In front of the driver is the black steering wheel and in the center of the wheel the famous Corvette cross flags. Beyond the wheel is a gorgeous instrument cluster. A huge 160 MPH speedometer stretches across the dash, and just below it a 7000 RPM tachometer is flanked by four smaller gauges that houses the fuel, battery, temperature, and oil pressure gauges. Full-size factory style wheel covers over modern radial tires completes this beautiful Corvette.
A drop top Corvette will ensure driver and passenger excitement travelling down any style of road. The Honduras Maroon with black interior is a timeless combination that is absolutely striking in person. If you enjoy driving your classic sports cars, then this is the one to have!
