1962 Chevrolet Corvette Convertible
Convertible Car for sale in Pompano Beach, Florida 33060
This super C5 is ripe for the picking. In 2006 when the C6 come on the scene, many C5 Z06 owners quickly traded their car in for the C6, flooding the market with used examples and driving down their prices.
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!
Classic Car Overview
This 1962 Chevrolet Corvette. condition weekend driver and would look good at any local car show. Runs fantastic.
This is a hardtop only car. It was ordered from the factory with only a hard top.
340HP 4 speed manual.
Staggered-width 17″ American Racing wheels with Uniroyal Tiger Paw tires measuring 205/65 in the front and 215/65 rear. Drum brakes are fitted all around. Completely serviced in 2019, along with the suspension.
The seats are black leather and matching leather treatments are present for the shift boot and 15″ steering wheel.
All the weather-stripping is in very good condition.
The period correct 327ci/340hp V8 was put in the car in 1996- hardened valve seats and the factory double-hump cylinder heads sourced from the removed factory engine. Additional equipment includes a PerTronix electronic ignition assembly, an aluminum flywheel, and a 3″ exhaust system linked to a pair of MagnaFlow mufflers. Borg Warner T-10 four-speed manual transmission and a rebuilt rear end equipped with 3.70:1 gearing.
Recent work completed includes a rebuild of the carburetor and replacement of the following components:
Clutch disc and pressure plate
Clutch release & pilot bearings
FlowKooler high-flow water pump
Fuel pickup and sending unit assembly
Fuel line rubber and hose clamps from tank to pump
Spark plugs (Autolite copper)
The car comes with the original factory numbers matching engine block. When the prior owner took possession of the car in 1996, it had been in storage for about 10yrs. He had the corvette fully restored. At the time he had a choice of rebuilding the original block, but without any warranty; or putting in a period correct replacement block that had a 1yr warranty, he chose the latter. The original block has tested fine and could be rebuilt and put back in the car if someone chose to.
The removed factory block displays the engine stamping 104614, which matches the vehicle’s serial number. The RE suffix corresponds with the 327/340 engine equipped with a manual transmission and four-barrel carburetor. The block was Magnafluxed by Young’s Auto Supply & Machine in Redwood City, California before I purchased the car.
Also several original spare parts- original windshield, original steering wheel, original clock, original radiato, shop manuals, restoration photos, assorted period literature and memorabilia.
Would also consider trading for a 2016-2019 C7 convertible.
