Roman Red over Red with Red Carpeting, White Convertible Top, Matching Red Hard Top, 327/300hp V8 Engine producing 300 Horsepower, 4-Speed Manual Transmission, Excellent Restored Condition. Option include: Factory hardtop, Signal seeking AM radio, Full wheel covers, Heater/defroster. With the creative influences of such incredible engineering talents as Edward Cole, Zora Arkus-Duntov, and Bill Mitchell behind it, the C1 Corvette had emerged as an American classic. The 1962 model year represents the end of an era for the Chevrolet Corvette. Over the course of ten years, the Corvette had evolved from Harley Earl's conceptual two-seat sports car and into a vehicle that rivaled sports cars around the world with an unabashed reputation for performance and fun. The 1962 Corvette is considered one of the greatest of all the C1 Corvettes. The '62 Corvette was the first model year to incorporate the 327 cubic inch V-8 engine in place of the smaller 283 cubic inch engine. The 327 engine was officially rated as producing 340 horsepower and offered the driver enough power to satisfy a lust for speed and performance while providing easy maintenance and repair. The 327 V-8 produced power and torque that was unparalleled and with its 4-speed manual transmission, the last generation C1 Corvette could regularly run the quarter-mile in under 15 seconds and achieve speeds in excess of 100 miles per hour while doing so. Though the overall appearance of the '62 remained faithful to the styling of Harley Earl's earlier models, this final variation was stripped of any of the remaining excesses that had plagued its earlier counterparts. The main omission which added to the more cohesive look of the car was the deletion of the option to have the coves painted in a different color than the rest of the car. Despite its origins and its undeniable ties to the very first Corvette, the 1962 was faster, handled better, was more physically appealing. It was realized as the most civilized of any Corvette made to date, while still retaining much of the pioneering imagination that made Harley Earl's 1953 concept car. Little did anyone realize just how successful the Corvette was about to become in its future variants. The 1962 C1 on offer has enjoyed a complete and thorough restoration making it one of the best we have had the pleasure of offering. Since restoration, it has been has been collector owned and has lived in climate controlled storage since. It is superb in every respect and capable of being awarded Top Flight status today. Previously owned by a long time client of ours, it has most recently been housed in his Palm Beach collection, serviced when and where needed and ready for immediate road use or concours showing.
