Classic Car Overview

1962 Chevrolet Corvette $62,995

Fort Worth, TX Red · 327 V8 · 3,343 miles
This 1962 Chevrolet Corvette is tired of talking about investments. Since when did Americas first (and greatest) sports car become a garage queen? If you like to drive, forget looking for a perfect Vette, a car like this gorgeous red roadster is what you really want. Spin the tires, soak up the sun, and let the guys with the trailers worry about values. Youll be having too much fun to care anyway.

Youve seen cars like this cruising down the road and the guy behind the wheel is always grinning like an escaped convict. Youve wanted one for years, right? So heres a gorgeous arrest-me-red roadster thats turn-key and ready to rock. The paint looks fantastic but isnt so perfect youll be afraid of the clouds in the sky, and you can definitely show up at the local cruise-in with this car and get a lot of respect. Its gorgeous, dont get me wrong, but its the kind of gorgeous that the purists would call too perfect or too nice. Thats OK with you, right? It fits together extremely well with doors that thunk shut with a solid feeling, and with those blacked-out grilles, Chevy designers really tried to make the Corvette look aggressive rather than simply pretty. It was repainted not too long ago and there really arent any better choices than Roman Red if you want to attract attention. The chrome appears to be a combination of nice original stuff and some restored bits, so it still has a great shine and really dresses up the glossy paint.

The twin-cockpit design was one of the most endearing features of the early Corvette, with bucket seats that seem to merge into the bodywork and the waterfall between them to bring the exterior into the car. The seats have correct covers that were recently installed, and today they show a comfortable, inviting look that means long cruises down your favorite road and evenings listening to the V8 rumble out back. The black steering wheel is a three-spoke unit that recalls sports cars from Europe and frames the domed instrument panel and tachometer, although if you look closely, youll note its a smaller-diameter unit thats a very clever illusion. That chrome shifter manages a 4-speed manual gearbox so this vintage Vette moves like a much younger piece and provides an involving experience. The AM radio has been replaced by an aftermarket AM/FM unit with auxiliary inputs and there are newer Corvette-logo floor mats and seat belts for safety. And just in case the weather turns on you, theres also a black convertible top thats in great shape and the trunk is big enough to actually be useful on road trips.

The engine is a freshly rebuilt 327 cubic inch V8 with a few upgrades to make it very entertaining to drive. With a mostly stock look, it runs beautifully with upgrades specifically chosen to make it more user-friendly. Note the Edelbrock carb living under the chrome air cleaner, plus an upgraded cooling fan and aluminum radiator, all working together to make it reliable and fun to drive. It does still run the original generator, but the ignition is electronic so it lights off almost instantly. Underneath, the chassis is pretty stock, right down to the original-style exhaust system and factory rear end, and its all quite tidy-looking so you wont have to worry when youre out cruising. Original steel wheels with hubcaps give it a period look and its been fitted with brutal-looking 205/70/15 blackwall radials all around.
