Very things are more American than a bright red Chevrolet Corvette. First introduced in 1953, the Corvette became a household name overnight due to its spectacular performance and stylish design. The outer body was made out of then-revolutionary glass fiber reinforced plastic material and the original design had a inline-six cylinder engine, drum brakes and solid axle. Chevrolet was very close to shelving the whole Corvette program due to the train of thought that saw it was a failed venture for GM's entry level brand. Three factors saved the Corvette. Legendary Russian emigre engineer Zora Arkus-Duntov, Chevrolet's first V8 engine and the introduction of the Ford Thunderbird.

This 1962 Corvette is one of the last produced from the original C1 generation production. Featuring a gorgeous coat of Royal Red, the paint is excellent and shows very well, as does the plentiful chrome trim. The car is powered by a 327cid V8 engine that produces 340hp and is attached to an optional 4-speed manual transmission driving through 3:50 rear gears. The car features a color matched factory hardtop as well as the tan soft top. The interior is likewise in excellent condition. The dash and gauges are in great shape and everything is fully functional. The seats are free of rips or stains and have good padding. The dash is free of cracks and has good brightwork. The glass is intact and in good shape. The car sits on optional aftermarket American Racing wheels with period BFGoodrich white letter T/A tires. It will also come with the original factory hub caps and tires.

According to the current owners who have had the car for the last 13 years, the vehicle was the recipient of a restoration and the condition of the vehicle seems to back that up. The last year of the solid axle Corvettes is an investment for sure, just 14,531 were made and even less with the top engine and desirable color combination.
