The Most Desirable Corvette Ever?

The 1967 Corvette is considered the most-loved Corvette ever produced. The combination of classic C2 styling, along with an incredible array of powertrain and comfort options, makes it one of the most desirable Corvettes ever. Not bad for a car that was never supposed to be made!


The ZR-1's production run from 1990-95 was one of the most exciting times for Corvette enthusiasts in recent memory. In the mid-1980s, rumors of a "King of the Hill" Corvette began to leak out of Detroit and into America's speed shops and dealerships.


Classic Car Overview

The 1962 Chevrolet Corvette was the final year for the first-generation Corvette, and its the sleekest of the run. This one not only does a terrific job of showcasing the iconic look, but also the numbers-matching V8 under the hood shows it respects its history. So to get it all in a package thats also ready to run makes for a terrific all-around classic. There was a solid investment in the exterior to make sure this one gives the right first impression. The burgundy paint sets the mood perfectly for this car. It has a hint of reds boldness, but in a deeper and more sophisticated tone. So its a gentlemans classic. The paint has the sleek look you want on a later C1 like this. The shine helps to highlight the distinct lines of the quad headlight front end and scalloped sides. And the flat rear was only available for the final few years of the first generation. It really announced that tailfin 1950s were giving way to the sleek and speedy 60s. But while the C1 was the smoothest it had ever been, they still didnt discard the brightwork that made it a true icon. In fact, its great to see that this one was given a proper investment in everything from the big bright bumpers to the delicate trim surrounding the interior. The white convertible top has quite a clean look. Since the roll-up windows are another later C1 advantage, its nice to see them seal easily with the roof. But a car like this was made to be open to the world. The black interior goes well with the deeper tones of the exterior burgundy, and you can see that especially well with the waterfall of color the goes in-between the two bucket seats. The overall interior show the right quality you want with nice seat covers, plush carpeting, complete intricate door panels, and a smooth dash. So you can tell there has been a good mix of preservation and investment. The steering wheel looks awesome, and its ridges have that great thin, grippy feel that only came on the right cars of this era. It has a nice driver feel with clear gauges, including the tach, and a crisp action from the shifter. They even installed an AM/FM digital tuner w/cassette to upgrade the driving music. The 1962 Corvette was also the only time the first-gen got the larger 327 cubic-inch V8. So its great to have the numbers-matching powerhouse so nicely on display. The bold block, matching valve covers w/callout, bright distributor shield, and wide air grabber have a great classic look in this tidy setup. It really appears stock, right down to the Delco generator. And the way this motor eagerly fires up signals the investments here were more than just cosmetic. The V8 inhales deeply through a four-barrel carburetor and exhales with a nice tune from the newer dual exhaust. And youre always in complete control of this full package thanks to the Muncie M20 four-speed manual transmission. This is the final year for the generation that launched the legend. Thats why this example is both sleek, significant, and ready to drive. Call now!
