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 taillight 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 1962 Corvette has undergone a frame off restoration and finished in striking Sateen Silver with a black interior and black convertible soft top. This 1962 Corvette convertible looks ready for a cruise down Route 66. Equipped with the optional 327/340 HP V-8 and 4-speed manual transmission, this Corvette features a matching-numbers engine and a matching numbers transmission. The immaculate engine compartment has been detailed with the correct painted finish valve covers and stickers, the appropriate air cleaner cover, cadmium-plated factory style clamps, GM part-number stamped hoses, cadmium-plated bolts, an era-correct polished steel distributor cover and proper Delco badging on the generator. It wears the period-correct spinner wheel covers with white wall bias-ply tires reflecting the vibe of high-performance Corvettes during the early 1960s.
This 1962 Corvette is the perfect cruiser with its stunning good looks and performance, with the desirable optional numbers matching 327ci/340hp engine, it's begging to be driven in sunny weather with the top down.
