“If you yearn for a car that asks to be driven, that pampers you in luxury, that you want for the sake of owning a fine, obedient road car, then Corvette is for you.”

These are the words with which Chevrolet lured eager buyers to its showrooms in 1962—and they were not disappointed when they arrived.  With rakish styling and tantalizing performance, it was the car you dreamt about, longed for, and could not forget.

This gorgeous 1962 Corvette is finished in Roman Red and benefits from a professional frame-off restoration.  Its paint has a deep and luminous luster, as does its mirror-like chrome.  The optional Roman Red hardtop—also fully restored—is included with sale, compete with a cradle for easy storage.  Should you happen to get caught in a few sprinkles, you’ll appreciate the convenience of its White convertible top, which is also in excellent condition.  You also have options when it comes to wheels and tires, as this car comes not only with the Chrome Cragars and radial tires that are currently mounted, but also with a full set of original wheels, hubcaps, and original style 4-ply tires, which are perfect when competing in car shows.

The interior of this Corvette is equally impressive and features bucket seats in matching red.  Its full complement of gauges show beautifully.  You’ll also appreciate its optional Wonder Bar AM radio and clock.  All instrumentation works as it should.

Under the hood you will find the original optional ultra-high performance 340 HP 327 CID engine, which is mated to a 4-speed transmission.  Of the four engines offered in 1962 Corvettes, this was the second most powerful engine, featuring a 4-barrel aluminum-bodied carburetor, aluminum intake manifold, special cast iron cylinder heads with large ports, domed aluminum pistons, 11.25:1 compression ratio, special camshaft, and mechanical valve lifters.  Its dual exhaust will reward you with a satisfying exhaust note.  Best of all, this car runs and drives as well as it looks.

Included with sale are several spare parts, including hoses, electronic ignition, points, distributor cap, blinker relay, fuel tank sending unit, and battery tray, among other items.  You’ll also appreciate several service manuals and Corvette-related books, as well as a set of 1962 Ohio license plates which are included with sale.

A one owner Florida car prior to the most recent owner’s purchase, this Corvette has been well cared for since its frame-off restoration.
