1962 Chevrolet Corvette C1
A very special corvette which was produced in '62, right before the production of the Corvette C2. This car is an amazing mix of a Corvette C1 and a Corvette C2, an absolute beauty.
Paint and chrome is still in good condition. Has a soft top in really good condition!
Seats are really comfortable and do not show any signs of tears, rips or stains. All the other interior details are still really shiny and the carpets are clean.

With a new larger engine the 1962 model year Corvette was the quickest to date. Displacement of the small-block V8 increased from 283 cu in (4,640 cc) to 327 cu in (5,360 cc), which produced 250 hp (190 kW) in its base single 4-barrel carburetor version. Hydraulic valve lifters were used in the standard and optional 300 hp (220 kW) engines, solid lifters in the optional carbureted 340 hp (250 kW) and fuel-injected 360 hp (270 kW) versions. Dual 4-barrel carburetor engines were no longer available.
1962 saw the last solid-rear-axle suspension, that had been used from the beginning. Rocker panel trim was seen for the first time, exposed headlights for the last, until 2005. This was the last Corvette model to offer an optional power convertible top mechanism. Rare options: RPO 488 24-gallon fuel tank (65), RPO 687 heavy-duty brakes and steering (246), RPO 473 power convertible top (350), RPO 276 15"×5.5" wheels (561).
