The Chevrolet Corvette (C1) is the first generation of the Corvette sports car produced by Chevrolet. It was introduced late in the 1953 model year, and produced through 1962. The 1962 model year was the last Corvette with a solid rear axle suspension that was used from the beginning. With two new engines it was also the quickest. Engine displacement increased with the introduction of the 327 cu in engine, with hydraulic valve lifters used in the base 250 hp and optional 300 hp. Rocker panel trim was seen for the first time, exposed headlights for the last, until 2005, and four taillights appeared on the 1961, a treatment that continues to this day.
This exceptionally original 1962 Corvette has had just 3 owners. The original owner kept the car for 52 years and 5 months before parting with it in 2014. The ultra low mileage of just 34,688 is documented and this is a numbers matching car. The car was sold new by Jim McKay Chevrolet in Fairfax, VA, on May 1, 1962. It still retains the original Fawn interior which is mint condition including carpets, door panels, and dash pads. All of the paint is original except for some touch up to the right rear fender. All of the window glass is correctly dated coded save for one rear quarter light. This 1962 Corvette has the following equipment:
White convertible top
4 Speed transmission
Signal seeking radio
White wall tires
Posi-traction rear end
327 Cu in V8/250 HP
This is truly a mint condition, survivor car the comes with the original owners manual, keys, warranty booklet, and numerous ownership records. We also have copies of the original vehicle title, window sticker, and bill of sale. Driving this car is as close to driving a brand new 1962 Corvette as I have ever experienced. It starts easily with no smoke or strange noises. There are no rattles or squeaks driving and even better, there is no play in the steering. Shifting is effortless and there is plenty of power. If you are looking for true originality, this is the Corvette for you, this is not a restored specimen!
